My special cheer leader...

Tuesday, July 21, 2009

.
This is my coach some may know her as Leslie Sansone. I use her while doing walk aerobics. She really gave a sweaty workout tonight. I have a 12 y/o who loves Leslie. It does not matter when I use her dvds he always comes in the room and help me out. emoticon. He jumps right along with me... stretches and moves with the music. Well I almost gave up at the two mile marker. How could I feel like giving up when he does not? He is special needs. Sweaty and near out of breath I pressed on and completed a 3 mile aerobic workout. The help of my special cheer leader who helped me stay the course. Sure he got in my way a little. I looked him grinning ear to ear. He made me smile even though the workout was extremely hard to me. I do not usually do 3 miles but I decided I would try it out. Who gave you a helping hand today? You may be surprised if you just look back.

    Great blog! Today my helping hand has to be my two sparkbuddies. They were only a phone call away when I was having a rough time with lunch choices because of poor planning on my end!!!

Have a great day!!

My college walk...

Friday, June 19, 2009



Well I took a walk around the gym in the student center today. I always said that walking did not burn enough calories and I would not do it any more. But its the one place especially in the summer when the college is next to empty and you have time to think. I think I was wrong about not walking it add some spice that I needed. I have been in a exercise slump but not any more. I had intentions of only walking for 15 min and it turned into a 45 min walk. The college has many buildings spread all over the place. My next move was to check out a library book called toe-rrific. A book that show nail designs toe nail designs. I have learned and am learning to design new one weeekly. I really love to do my nails but no one elses too yucky! I also got another book. When I really get my craft together I may post some of them. This was the college I graduated from and it brought back thoughts of my college years. I also got a college schedule book for my son who will attend next year (fingers crossed)).

Now after all that walking on my way back to the car which was up hill and over the river and thur the woods LOL (just kidding) but it was up hill with which seemed like thousands of steps. I thought I would drop 911 please LOL. My body finally caught up with my heart. I probably over did it a bit--- but it is cool. I am glad I decided to walk. Now my exercise is back track. I even managed to stay in cal range. Mr. ee lost this time. emoticon emoticon

First of all, I love that walking trail. So peaceful and tranquil.... emoticon

Walking is emoticon for you. I use to walk 10 miles a day and I toned my calves, flatten my stomach, lost a lot of inches and weight. But most of all, it let me think...Keep up the walking girl emoticon

    Ah, you re-initiated a long-lost "love" for walking - how WONDERFUL! I, too, just WALKED yesterday --- well, I went to pick DH up from class and had 20 minutes to "kill" and it was too hot to just sit in the car, so I used their walking path! It DID feel GREAT!
Oooh a BOOK on nail painting! You'll have to take some pics of your artwork one day emoticon

Just a note of thanks!

Tuesday, June 09, 2009



Wow It has been a while since I've been on the computer. The kids are out of school so I have been really busy with them.

I just want to say thanks for all my new friends on sp and just those who same to say a word of encouragement. I am shocked and honored being chosen as a motivator for the day. I am late posting this but nevertheless thanks for all the goodies, encourging words and comments on my page. I had to swallow tears back. LOL.

It has been along journey for me and I am glad that I could share it with spark and friends. I have a long road ahead but with friends like you and my faith in the Lord I know I will make it.

Some have voiced their concern for me being diagnosed as diabetic. To me that is just a name or condition. It is not who I am inside as a person. I have some challenges that is all. Who doesn't?? It is what you do with the challenge you have been given. I may have been diagnosed as such but I intend on giving that stinking diabetes a run for its money. I may have it but it does not have me. Again A BIG thanks!

    Ah, diabetes is something that everyone can work with. DH has diabetes too, and I "HAD" T2 diabetes. Work on that water, work on better carb choices (whole grains!) watch those hidden "sugars" and you can DO IT TOO!

    I know exactly what you are saying. This morning as I was coming into work, I said to myself, "The only person that henders your progress is ME!" I came to that conclusion after saying I wanted to stop & get me some Red Vines from the Target close to my job cause they are so soft. Now eating the entire box 560 calories, no fat but totally all carbs! So where does all the sugar go? My midsection of course. Please let us know how you like the book?!

Blessings to us all on this journey!

    ...skids back in with 1 more nod & agreement.

in the past when u said u wouldn't buy 1 more, i say that about "low calorie diets" ~ i won't just try more diets... i need to find the skills & tools and foods and ways to eat and exercise that do help me. so i can create a lifestyle approach that works for me personally. nourish me physically and emotionally both...

it's ok to consider any & all ideas. if they are crazy making for me... well, i don't have to do them, right?

right!

woot!

Have fun exploring more ideas :)

    lol, u tell Mr EE!!! Woot!!!

i struggle with his cousin Mr BingeBoy and neither are welcome @ my house any more!!!

emoticoni think everyone's books & plans are ideas we can ponder & consider. It's important to distinguish if it is good for us or not. keep the good, skip the rest!

for example, Beck said do these things as rules... well that made me wanna do the opposite! lol ~ yeah, i have a very stubborn inner 2 yr old child that pitches royal hissy fits...

but if i look past the way she said things and looked at her idea... i found a lot of good ideas that really work well for me, like the Give Yourself Credit skill, 1 of my all time favorite ideas ever!

emoticon emoticon emoticoni can see your Spark rising & shining strong today, my friend :)

    Oh, how I love that picture!

Tonight on NBC is Farrah Faucet's two hour documentary on her fight with Cancer. If you know someone this would benefit watching, tell them not to miss it. She is now terminally ill, but has fought it for three years. Thank you for your support of my Nathan's Cancer battle. He went this morning for his last treatment for this Round. Then in a couple of weeks he will have the fourth and final week. emoticon emoticon
