Gloomy Sunday

Sunday, June 24, 2012



It's a gloomy Sunday here in Florida my spark friends! :( Tropical storm Debby is really putting the heavy rains and high winds to us. And it is expected to last through tomorrow. Typical for hurricane season in the sunshine state. I know that some of my nearby spark friends are also feeling the effects. Right now, I am just praying that the power stays on and that no more trees fall in the yard! I still have some 'piddling" (as Pooh calls it) to do around the house, but there won't be any indoor walking today. ::frowning:: We have a small place and Pooh is napping on the couch where he will probably remain for the rest of the day. I usually exercise in the living room (as it is the only area big enough) but that is a no go for this spark girl. Oh well, tomorrow is a gym day! I guess I will just have to settle for piddling, sparking and watching television today (provided the internet and power stay on).

On the brighter side, maybe I can get some more of my cookbook done today! :) I hope that you are all dry and having a wonderful Sunday! :)

    Hope your power stayed on today. Enjoy the gym on Monday. By the way, I tried Leslie's 2 mile today. I am really loving this video. When I have the $$ I will definately check out Denise Austin's. I am loving changing up my exercise routines. You're doing great. Keep up the hard work. Hugs, Jackie

    Praying for you.... having spent some of my youth in Gulf Shores I too know about those storms and how fast they can change due to the warm water temps.

Do what you can, remember that everything counts because you are burning calories.... I have to remind myself of this too.

Can't wait to know more about your cookbook.

Stay safe!

    Growing up in Arizona (and living here now), I totally love huge rain storms! I do remember, however, that after 15 years living in Tampa, I wasn't so thrilled about rain any more!

Do you have some small dumbbells? I have a set of 5 lb and of 8 lb at home, and can easily get in a good strength session without a gym membership.

    Happy Sparking and Cookbook making. It's really a pleasant temperature, although muggy - better than 90 degrees and this kind of humidity.

    I was just wondering about you and other FL Sparkers when I got online and saw The Weather Channel's site. I do hope there's no serious damage and you're able to keep your power on.

Keep up your usually sunny outlook despite the forecast! emoticon emoticon

Change of plans

Saturday, June 23, 2012



Ok, so dinner is almost done! Having a little pasta tonight. :) And I got all the chores on my list done except my Leslie walking (too many peeps in the way). Baby girl #1 came over with her hubby, so we had a nice visit instead! :) Burned a lot of calories today anyway with all my chores and the gym. I hope all of you had an awesome day! :)

    Glad you had a nice visit and got all your chores done. I did Leslie's 1 mile walk again, today. I think tomorrow I will try the 2 mile. Hugs, Jackie

Super Fitness Saturday

Saturday, June 23, 2012



As usual, the gym was great! We got up at 8a.m. and made it to the the gym (1 hour), the library and dropped off some of baby girl's donations at the goodwill and were back home by 10a.m.

Applause again for baby girl who made it to the gym four times this week! Yay! :) And applause for myself who has lost another pound! Yay! :) Slow and steady wins the race!

Now that we have that out of the way . . . the plan for the day is as follows:

Clean out fridge (while doing laundry)
Clean out kitchen cabinets and rearrange (while still doing laundry)
Clean and manage spice shelves (more laundry)

**Lunch**

Clean the dreaded toilets (more laundry)
Sweep and mop floors (again with the laundry)
Dust and Vacuum (finish laundry)

**Walk with Leslie - a 2 mile walk!**

Bathe "honey" dog
Bathe self

**Snack**

Run (drive) to grocery store
Unload groceries
Begin dinner preparation

**Spark**

Dinner
Do dishes

**Spark**

T.V. with Pooh Bear
End of day **Sleep**

Happy Saturday to all my spark friends! Have you got a plan? Let's make it a good one! :)

    Hi Jackie,
Great list of chores planned. Hope you go it all done. Did I ever tell you how much I hate housework? But, I am proud to say that I got quite a bit of it done, today. Somehow, though, I never get as much done as I wanted. Oh well, there's always more to do tomorrow.

    It seems that my weekend days are often more action packed than the weekdays! From what you wrote, it looks like yours are too.

    Good plan! My day didn't go as planned at all. Maybe I'll get more things done tomorrow.

Loved the cartoon. My husband put his foot through the wall when he was on the treadmill one day. He fixed the wall and moved the treadmill!

Bouncing through this Friday!

Friday, June 22, 2012



Morning ya'll. :)

So the online gym class that baby girl is taking this summer has really motivated her to get her little bum out of bed and go to the gym with me in the mornings! Thankful for that! I love having my workout buddy with me. :) She hasn't missed a single gym day all week! (applause) See, she has to record 360 minutes of physical activity per week to pass the course ::cheesy grin:: so the 240 minutes of gym time really helps her reach that goal.

Also had a little inspiration and glory moment at the gym this morning ::another cheesy grin:: I ran into an old customer from my previous employment (two years ago) and after sharing the usual "Hi, How are ya's and where are you working", he commented how great I looked. :) Must be all those muscles that I am building from lifting weights! Certainly wasn't the fact that I don't wear any make up and have my hair in a pony when I workout! I can tell ya that it boosted my ego a little and made me feel good. Put a little bounce in my step too! :)

I hope all my sparky friends have an awesome Friday and find something to bounce around about today! :)

Yay! It's Thursday! :)

Thursday, June 21, 2012



Yay! It's Thursday! Boy, this week sure has flown by for me! Now I am left contemplating a weekend mostly indoors. It is supposed to rain here for the next three or four days! Yuck! No swimming with the baby girls this weekend! :( Guess I will be hitting the gym on Saturday and moving the exercise bike to an easy access location! Leslie and I will also be walking away the pounds Saturday and Sunday morning. :) I hope all my spark friends have had a great week and have happy & healthy plans for the upcoming weekend! Let's make it an awesome Thursday! :)

    Hi Jackie,
Sounds like you have some good exercise plans in place since you'll be staying indoors. I still need to check out those Leslie videos. Hopefully I can pick one up this weekend. I'm dealing with 96 degree temp. today. I hate really hot weather. I crave 70's all year long. Oh well, if it never hit the 90's, I probably wouldn't appreciate the 70's so much. Have a Happy Thursday.
