Cookbook . . . finally! The girls will be proud. :)

Saturday, May 26, 2012



So, those of you who do not know me are not aware that I have been threatening a cookbook for my girls for several years now. Every time one calls and asks for a recipe favorite I get reminded. With work, going back to school, taking care of Pooh and every other excuse that I can think of, I have managed to postpone the threat! :) Well, I am not taking classes over the summer, so I thought that I would start that cookbook with my new found freedom! I just want my Sparkfriends to know that this is NOT a healthy cookbook! These recipes are just foods that I have made for my family (and friends) over the years. Some can be adjusted to a healthier version (which the girls hate) and some simply cannot. So far, I have two pages and the cover (shown above). Wish me luck with it's completion! I also plan to make a healthy recipe cookbook once this one is finished (maybe the girls will want those recipes too). :)

    That is such a wonderful idea! My mom passed away when I was 21 and before she handed down her recipes. I had to figure out her recipes by myself which took a lot of trial and error. Your girls will cherish this!

    That is on my bucket list.

My two younger sisters and I have been talking about it for 5 yrs now. Something to hand down to our children. I've take pictures of my dishes and have a mega folder of recipes.

My oldest son has called me and my mother for recipe favorites. None of the family recipes are "healthy".

This is truly the best gift you can give to you offspring. Just think, this book may be handed down generations.

    That is so cool!! I wish my mom would've done something like that for me. She's gone now and sadly so are her recipes.

Mornin' ya'll!

Saturday, May 26, 2012



Hello and good mornin' to all! Lots of activity planned for the day! At the top of the list is not eating like it's the weekend! Body has not recovered from yesterday's buffet! Can anyone say bad idea! Anyhow, the scale reflected my feast that is for sure. No loss this week, but hey, no gain either! :) I hope everyone is planning a great holiday weekend that includes lots of outdoor activities! Have a safe and happy Saturday!

    well you know, we're not here for failure, so you had a good time.. SUCCESS, you were aware that you had eaten a few treats and would have to counterbalance that at some point SUCCESS, and you're not punishing yourself for being happy and enjoying yourself - SUCCESS!!!
Its not about how we trip, its about how we pick ourselves up and walk onwards :)
there will always be hiccups, mishaps and perhaps even disappointments, but its much more about your attitude to dealing with them that matters, enjoy yourself, thats what we're here for :)
KEEP SMILING ;)

    I feel you! *LOL* Really I understand. I have not had any eating issues at all, but I have lost no weight. I am hopefully gaining muscle weight as I did not have a gain on the scale. I wish we could be outside, but it is over 90f here and the humidity is unreal.... it actually makes me sick to be outside to walk... and I have had to back down the intensity of my workouts to keep from getting sick again. All the same... a new day and a new start...... have a great weekend yourself....
Don't give up just because you had no loss..... stick to your plan! Take care of You!

The backup plan

Friday, May 25, 2012

Thanks to Leslie Sansone, my daily fitness was not completely ruined! Kim and I slept in a bit this morning (always happens when Aunt Lucy is near), so no gym this morning. :( Anyway, after I got the half awake child to the bus stop I broke out the back up plan and dusted off Leslie's 2 mile walk dvd and got this party started. 1 short hour later I feel as though I went to the gym! Phew! Forgot about those over the head weights!! Hope everyone else has a backup plan. :) Ya'll have a great Friday! I know I will now! :)

    I have the "Walk away the Pounds" DVD too. I like it. I like to try and do the Walk Strong Express with 3 lb hand weights and I even like the Pilates section. Love the cartoon.

    I absolutely LOVE Leslie Sansone's Walk Away the Pounds! She isn't my back-up plan, she's my first line of defense, lol! I have fibromyalgia but I can still do Leslie's videos, even the ones with the stretchie bands and the weighted balls and stuff, without setting myself into a flare-up :) I actually have probably 10-12 of her various dvds!

    Thanks for all the posts ladies! :)

Blew the day all to heck and back with dinner! OMG!! I ate a lttle bit of everything that I personally put on my plate. :( Not good! Over 1,000 calories in meal. Can you say food overload? Stuffed! Sick! Oh well, tomorrow is another day! No more buffet for me!

Hope ya'll had a great one!

Sleepy today

Thursday, May 24, 2012

It has been a very long, sleepy day. I hope everyone ate healthy and had a super day! No sparking for me tonight. Watching a little "Dirty Harry" with Pooh Bear and Piglet (hee hee - she'd die if she knew I was calling her that) and then off to bed. Have a good night spark friends! :)

Brainy Bus Driver

Thursday, May 24, 2012

Well, we are thankful already this morning for the new bus driver who had the good sense to tell the kids what time he intended to be at the bus stop this a.m.! No more waiting at the stop for 30-45 minutes! Woo Hoo! :) Here's hoping that everyone has a really great Thursday! I am counting down the hours till tomorrow at 2:30 when I will be off work till Tuesday! Yay!

    That's great news re: the bus driver indicating a time frame. That makes life a little less stressful.

No beach time for me but there's a parade my two teens are playing & marching in.
