Wide awake this Monday morning. :)

Monday, June 04, 2012



Let me start by saying that I DO NOT DO MORNINGS . . especially Monday mornings! Never have been that person. I am more of a night owl. But I am wide awake now! Skipped the gym today for an extra hour of sleep (much needed) and put on Leslie and her two mile walk instead! Woo Hoo my motors running now! I hope that every spark peep starts the day out with some exercise to get them going. Have a great day ya'll! :)

    Good for you. Even with sleeping in, you made sure to get in your work out. I really need to get some of those videos for a little variety. Hope the rest of your day is just as energatic and enthusiastic.

Sunday, June 03, 2012



Ok . . I admit it! I told a big fat one! About having a lazy Sunday, I mean. I just couldn't do it!! After walking with the pups for thirty, I went to the store, came home and put Leslie on and darn her!!! she made me do the two mile walk! :) I really am tired now though! Heading for the couch and a good movie just as soon as I get done hollering at my spark friends! Hope everyone is having a fantastic day!

    It's almost 10 pm and I'm sitting here thinking "I should go for a little walk!" LOL I already spend over an hour this morning mowing and working in the yard.....I don't need any more exercise today but I really feel like doing it! Isn't that weird??

    The same thing happened to me. If you go back to one of my old blogs, I talked about how, after happily only doing cardio on week days and taking the weekends off, I suddenly found myself yearning to exercise on the weekends, also. I decided to make it a spark streak, just to see how long I could go. I'm still going and it's been well over 40 days. So, you go girl.

    Good for you, fitting in even more exercise. Hope you also fit in some relaxation this evening.

Have a wonderful week. emoticon

Guilty Conscience

Sunday, June 03, 2012



Ok, so I have a little bit of a guilty conscience today. :( I really love reading our fellow sparkers blogs, most give me inspiration and sometimes I try to give them inspiration too. However, I just can't seem to bring myself to comment on the blogs of users who state that they can do 200 pushups and 200 situps per day and such! I know . . . I should be proud and happy for them. I should give them goodies and accolades, but I just close the blog and move on to more needy or inspiring spark peeps. Most of us on here are here for the support we can get from other people like ourselves, but I can't help thinking that if I could do that many pushups and situps, why would I be in my predicament in the first place! And no, these are not people that have been on here forever and lost the weight. These are new peeps with much smaller goals than mine. Shouldn't make a difference, I know, but for some reason it does to me. Anyway, just wanted to share with those of you who read my blogs and see the needy individual I am! Forgive me my healthier spark peeps! :)

    Not all of us have a lot of weight to lose, however, we may have other health struggles that sparkpeople is really helping us overcome. My biggest challenge is not weight, though I do want to lose a bit. My biggest challenge is fitness. I've never really focused on it and because of that have developed osteopenia (the early stage of osteoporosis). My doc says that walking 30 minutes a day and lifting weights will build back my bone density...

Just saying, you can't always *see* with your eyes the reasons that a person is on this site and needing your encouragement.

That said, my prior statement that seeing someone brag about 200 pushups does not impress me stands! :D

    i feel so much the same way some days. i see others with pics of perfect bodies and running marathons and doing all these great exercises and really being successful with that side of it, and i feel almost defeated.
but i do feel happy for them and wish them well and continued success, then i feel angry with myself for being on sp for 2 to 3 years or more and havent really gotten very far....of my own doing of course....
and then i say why do i have to go for surgery when others can just count calories and work out ????
i guess its the same with many areas of our lives.....
but then i remind myself that while i see someone saying they want to lose 15 lbs and go from a size 13 to a size 10 and i think....well, i wont say what i think here, haha, but i tell myself that is their struggle, that is their goal and i shouldnt judge, and so i move on like you to someone who really needs encouragement or advice.

    I'm the same way. The only people that I will friend is people in a similar situation as mine. If you're a whole 25 lbs overweight and you just don't know what you're going to do to fit into that size 6 dress for a wedding next month, don't look to me for comfort. I've got none to give you. (and yes, I know I'm a bitch. Even on my good days...)

    Oh my goodness, don't feel at all guilty about that! Comment on the blogs that touch you or motivate you. Reading that someone can do 200 pushups would never motivate me. I'd rather read that someone learned there are four servings in a pint of ice cream (not one), and made the choice to eat just one serving (grin).

And by the way, I cannot do a proper push-up either. Not enough core strength for the lower part. I can however, proudly do a 20-second plank!

    Very well said Linda! :) That is kind of my point though, I feel like I am able to understand and share things with those a little closer to my own plight. Thanks for your nice comments! I hope you are having a great weekend! :)

    I love the picture of the puppy. So cute! So sheepishly perfect!

I know I get intimidated, too. And the truth is I will probably never want (or need) to do 200 push ups. At this point, I can't do one, but I know that I will be able to do them, eventually. I tell myself that even if the details are different, we share some the same goals. I want to be healthier. I want to be active. I've decided to look at it this way: It's not the differences that matter as much as the things we can share. And I remind myself (constantly) that each of us has our own journey.

Lazy Sunday

Sunday, June 03, 2012



Hello my sparky friends! I hope you are up and about (and more awake than I am right now). Stayed up till midnight watching TV with Pooh. (He is still sleeping!) That's about two hours past my bedtime! I am working on my second cup of Joe and planning a very relaxed day today. All the house work and yard work is done (for the week anyway) and I think that my body needs a break. Besides the grocery store, cooking dinner, preparing lunch and snacks for tomorrow and maybe straightening up the computer room, I have nothing else planned. Although, Leslie is calling my name . . . I think that I have become addicted (once again) to her workout DVDs. Who knows . . . I might do a 30 minute mile. I hope that everybody has a great Sunday! :)

    I like her dvd's too.... have not tried them recently... but love being able to do a 15 minute mile when I walk outside.... and it is due to using her dvd's in the past. I have a couple of new ones I want to try.
I am so happy for you that you get a "lazy Sunday" it is nice to take a breather and spend time doing what you want instead of what you need to do...... Whew! Enjoy!

Honeypot is pooped!

Saturday, June 02, 2012



Phew! What a day! I am dog tired. :) I got one mile in with the great Leslie Sansone, three hours of serious housework (we're talking on the floor scrubbing), a bit of yard work, dog bathing and laundry! Stick a fork in me . . . I am done! Hope that my spark friends are having a super day!

If you cover the head of the dog in that pic it would almost look like a turkey. LMBO
