HAPPY to see My Healthy Habits Kick In...During the Summer!!!!

Saturday, July 17, 2010

During the summer I LOVE being outside ,but when it gets TOO HOT, I just go inside and relax.I was worried about HOW was I going to get a workout in--when it's too hot? Well, today ,I got UP & OUTSIDE {unusual for me since I'm NOT an early riser,but a NIGHT OWL,even though I have a toddler..} for an early run {we're talking 9am here,ok?!LOL!!} with toddler in stroller and found a NEW route that was mostly shaded to run my mile in! Plus we went to a NEW PARK so ,my son could climb,jump and play!! I also am continuing to workout my abs on my AB ROLLER every day for 5-10 min. as SOON as my toddler takes a nap!!!! It's like my brain kicks into high gear each morning and I think "what am I going to do for a workout today?"---running, lifting weight straps on my Soloflex machine,gardening,etc. So I hope all Sparkers are having a GREAT summer and share YOUR HEALTHY HABITS ,if you would like!!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    It sounds like you know how to fill your day with lots of fun activites... I know what you mean about the abs.. try doing the coach Nicole ab workout.. its killer but great.. only 15 minutes. Its one of the boot camp workouts I think day 7.. I am doing Leslie Sansone walk your belly flat.. its killer too but getting easier..

    When I lived where it was hot but didn't own a air conditioner I at night would get the sheet wet and wring it out and sleep under it with the fan going... absoulte heaven if your too hot to sleep... or one place we would live I would jump in the river. and walk around wet all day in front of the fan.. I guess you have to decide whats worse being wet or being hot.. LOL 120 on the ranch was too hot to function.. luckly we had frequent rains that cooled things off for about an hour.

    I open the windows at night and close them in the morning. When it gets hot inside, I turn on the A/C.

Do you LIKE/LOVE to Scrapbook?

Thursday, July 15, 2010

I LOVE to scrap {scrapbook}! I can never seem to find ENOUGH TIME to do it because I LOVE to work on a page or a 2- page layout until I'm satisfied it has all the embellishments and photos and cutesy paper and journaling ,etc. to COMPLETE the look I'm going for on my page --which HAS to BRING out the BEST in the photos!!!! TELL me [if you scrap] what is your difficulty in getting a page done and what do you LIKE doing on your pages!!! I have a few---and will post more----pages in the future!!
P.S. I AM going to scrap with other friends RIGHT NOW for 3 hours while Daddy is at Grandma's with toddler!!!!!YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! emoticon

    I enjoy putting the photos down in fun layouts. I am a "boring" person though as I don't do a ton of embellishments. Just here and there when I feel it is needed. I still think it is more fun than just sticking them in those old photo albums!

    I love to scrap but I usually only take the time if I am scrapping with someone else.

    I like doing it, but I'm just not very good at it. I guess I just don't have that artistic "eye" for a pleasing layout.

    I love scrapbooking. My biggest challenge is my husband who SWEARS he wants me to do it because he wants me to do something I enjoy, but wanders around sighing while I am actually doing it. I guess the sighs are subconscious???

    I love to do it!! I got a wedding one as a gift and it was so much fun to do. Then I made my husband one for our 1st year anniversary!! He liked it much better than I thought he would. I need to start another. emoticon

    I love to scrap! I am so far behind! I haven't taken the time to work on them since last fall. I think I feel overwhelmed with how far behind I am so I just keep putting it off.

    This wasn't exactly a vacation, but a drive across the whole country from RI to WA state. Twenty years ago, my 6 children, 7 cats, and a rabbit we picked up along the way, camped across the United States. Memories!

Tuesday, July 13, 2010

    That's a tough one. A bunch of months ago I had a bad cough and drank so much water that I ended up with hyponatremia (lack of sufficient sodium). So then I used one package of Chiken Ramen noodles WITH the liquid (since it is very salty) and corrected the hyponatremia!

I do have to say that I use cough drops sparingly when I have coughs. Of course, some people swear by lemon juice and honey.
