Burn Baby Burn!

Wednesday, October 01, 2008

I feel so good this morning, last night I did Turbo Jam's-Punch, Kick & Jam emoticon for 50 min...then I went on to do the Lower Body Jam for 30 min. Boy, was I sweating bullets! emoticon ...I then went on to end my workout by doing a 15-minute strength training...the Standing Side Bend w/a towel...but in my case..I used my resistance bands. My legs this morning are burning..but it feels so good! To have worked out my muscles...muscles I didn't even know a sista had... emoticon. Thanks for listening! emoticon

  Hi Iris! Thanks for your comments. By the way, I love your profile and I love that poem by Maya Angelou...I had actually totally forgotten about that poem but between the quotes you left me earlier and that poem I am feeling a lot better!

    Good for you, Iris! That Turbo Jam is pretty intense so wow!
You keep that up and the pounds are going to fall off. It looks like it is would be a lot of fun. I have hurt knees so my jumping around days are over. Thanks for sharing! Hugs, Deanie

Help..TOM is here, mid-term is next week..and I am still sick!

Thursday, September 25, 2008


OMG, emoticon I am about to have a serious anxiety attack..I still have a head cold, my mid-term is next week...and T.O.M. (Time of the Month) just appeared today...on her own...So upset. Mind you that I have a dress on today and had to keep asking my co-worker if there was anything on the back of my dress..Bad enough, my eyes are itchy & watery, runny nose, hacking cough, and a scratchy throat. On top of that I have to go to class tonight for mid-term review..I don't get off til 7pm and I will probably be the only one walking in around 7:45 and class starts at 6. I am so hungry..even though I just ate lunch..whoever said being a woman was easy..LIED! I have not however let these demons keep me away from my Spark Fam..I love you peeps...But on another note, can someone...anyone...please pray for me!

    Iris, I hope all went well with your midterm review and hope you at least get some rest tonight so that you can wake up with a renewed mind & spirit tomorrow morning.

TOM - girl, that is hilarious...I will have to use that one. I sometimes have to wear 2 sanitary napkins to help w/leakage or one of each. What women have to deal with...AARGH!

Remember you are...Too Blessed To Be Stressed!

Take care,
Vanetia

    Lord God I ask that you be with her on this trying day. I pray that you don't let this world get her down and that she just remember it's only the world, and that you will never give us more than we can hold. I pray that she remember that her strength comes from you Lord. I pray Lord that you be healer and that she look to you for support and healing because you are an almighty God who never runs out of strength. Thank you Lord for this day and I pray that you help her see the beauty in today in all the trying things and that she takes solace in the fact that through all this you are STILL an awesome God that will never leave us or forsake...in your name I pray Lord...amen

    Prayer said just for you!

I know how you feel all except the school issue. I'm praying I'm on the last leg of a terrible 2 week cold and it started at the same time TOM came which lasted 2 weeks as well. Just hang in there and put on a little extra protection in the rear so that accident don't happen and cause any embarassment on top of everything else. (our secret - I usually put a wad of paper towel in my rear section to gurantee that until I can get some other protection in place - it works! emoticon)

The DEVIL is a LIAR!...I AM A SURVIVOR

Tuesday, September 16, 2008

Hey Spark Fam...

I have been so stressed out lately...school, work..family/relationship drama..NOT 2 Mention the HIGH AZZ Gas Prices..haven't had much time to exercise lately. I have SOOOOO MUCH homework to do..that I barely have time to myself...Sometimes, I don't know if I am coming or going emoticon. I am going to make this week a better week..because I am a SURVIVOR...Yall say a prayer for me, PLEASE! Thanks..Luv U ALL...

Survivor by Destiny's Child

(Verse 1)
Now that you are out of my life,
I'm so much better,
You thought that I'd be weak without ya,
But I'm stronger,
You thought that I'd be broke without ya,
But I'm richer,
You thought that I'd be sad without ya,
I laugh harder,
You thought I wouldn't grow without ya,
Now I'm wiser,
You thought that I'd be helpless without ya,
But I'm smarter,
You thought that I'd be stressed without ya,
But I'm chillin'
You thought I wouldn't sell without ya,
Sold nine million.

[Chorus]
I'm a survivor (what),
I'm not gonna give up (what),
I'm not gon' stop (what),
I'm gonna work harder (what),
I'm a survivor (what),
I'm gonna make it (what),
I will survive (what),
Keep on survivin' (what),
I'm a survivor (what),
I'm not gonna give up (what),
I'm not gon' stop (what),
I'm gonna work harder (what),
I'm a survivor (what),
I'm gonna make it (what),
I will survive (what),
Keep on survivin' (what).

(Verse 2)
Thought I couldn't breathe without you,
I'm inhalin'
You thought I couldn't see without you,
Perfect vision,
You thought I couldn't last without ya,
But I'm lastin'
You thought that I would die without ya,
But I'm livin'
Thought that I would fail without ya,
But I'm on top,
Though it would be over by now,
But it won't stop,
You thought that I would self-destruct,
But I'm still here,
Even in my years to come,
I'm still gon' be here.

[Chorus]
I'm a survivor (what),
I'm not gonna give up (what),
I'm not gon' stop (what),
I'm gonna work harder (what),
I'm a survivor (what),
I'm gonna make it (what),
I will survive (what),
Keep on survivin' (what),
I'm a survivor (what),
I'm not gonna give up (what),
I'm not gon' stop (what),
I'm gonna work harder (what),
I'm a survivor (what),
I'm gonna make it (what),
I will survive (what),
Keep on survivin' (what).

(Bridge)
I'm wishin' you the best,
Pray that you are blessed,
Much success, no stress, and lots of happiness,
(I'm better than that)
I'm not gonna blast you on the radio,
(I'm better than that)
I'm not gonna lie on you or your family, yo,
(I'm better than that)
I'm not gonna hate you in the magazine,
(I'm better than that)
I'm not gonna compromise my Christianity,
(I'm better than that)
You know I'm not gonna diss you on the Internet
Cause my momma told me better than that.

[Chorus]
I'm a survivor (what),
I'm not gonna give up (what),
I'm not gon' stop (what),
I'm gonna work harder (what),
I'm a survivor (what),
I'm gonna make it (what),
I will survive (what),
Keep on survivin' (what),
I'm a survivor (what),
I'm not gonna give up (what),
I'm not gon' stop (what),
I'm gonna work harder (what),
I'm a survivor (what),
I'm gonna make it (what),
I will survive (what),
Keep on survivin' (what).

Oh
(Oh)
Oh
(Oh)
Oh
(Oh)
Oh
(Oh)
Oh
(Oh)
Oh
(Oh)
Oh
(Oh)
Oh
(Oh)

After all of the darkness and sadness,
Still comes happiness,
If I surround myself with positive things,
I'll gain prosperity.

[Chorus]
I'm a survivor (what),
I'm not gonna give up (what),
I'm not gon' stop (what),
I'm gonna work harder (what),
I'm a survivor (what),
I'm gonna make it (what),
I will survive (what),
Keep on survivin' (what),
I'm a survivor (what),
I'm not gonna give up (what),
I'm not gon' stop (what)(Don't stop me now)
I'm gonna work harder (what),
I'm a survivor (what),
I'm gonna make it (what),
I will survive (what),
Keep on survivin' (what).

[Chorus]
I'm a survivor (what),
I'm not gonna give up (what),
I'm not gon' stop (what),
I'm gonna work harder (what),
I'm a survivor (what),
I'm gonna make it (what),
I will survive (what),
Keep on survivin' (what),
I'm a survivor (what),
I'm not gonna give up (what),
I'm not gon' stop (what),
I'm gonna work harder (what),
I'm a survivor (what),
I'm gonna make it (what),
I will survive (what),
Keep on survivin' (what).

  


A Change Is Gonna Come!

Thursday, September 11, 2008

emoticon All,

Just wanted to take a moment and share with all of you..the lyrics to one of my FAVORITE songs by Sam Cooke! I believe that the lyrics to this song applies to EACH AND EVERYONE OF YOU! A change is going to come for all of us...REAL SOON! Be Blessed!

Sam Cooke - A Change Is Gonna Come emoticon

I was born by the river in a little tent
And just like that river I've been running ever since
It's been a long time coming
But I know a change is gonna come, oh yes it will

It's been too hard living, but I'm afraid to die
Cos I don't know what's out there beyond the sky
It's been a long, a long time coming
But I know a change is gonna come, oh yes it will

BRIDGE:

And then I go to see my brother
And I ask him to help me please
And he just winds up knockin' me
Back down on my knees

There were times when I thought I couldn't last for long
But now I think I'm able to carry on
It's been a long, been a long time coming
But I know a change is gonna come, oh yes it will
