I Sparked 8 People in 2 days!

Thursday, February 11, 2010

I'm shocked! I looked at my SparkPoints today and wondered how I could have gotten all those points and found out I sparked 6 people on Thursday alone and 2 on Wednesday! I got a trophy for my Spark page too! What a pleasant surprise today!

I wandered around Ikea for 2 hours today for something different. I was looking for a magazine holder for the "reading room" but couldn't find one I liked so we'll just use an clean waste basket. Then I had to get a nother resistance band, I keep one hooked around the dresser leg so I know where it is when I want to do workouts. Then the dreaded grocery shopping.

I don' think I'll be doing an exercise workout today.

Wednesday/Friday

Wednesday, February 10, 2010

Even though it's Wednesday, it's like Friday here, our weekend starts on Thursday.

I noticed yesterday I had more points than usual so I carefully went down the list to see what extra I earned and found that I Sparked 2 more people!! WOO HOO! I do not recognize their names but I must have posted something somewhere along the line and they checked us out!

This morning I got in a 54 minute 2.8 mile walk, this afternoon I did a 25 minute Leslie Sansone WATP video, then did about 30 minutes of core exercises and dumbbell exercises.

So now I need to put together a menu and grocery list for next week so I can do the dreaded shopping on Thursday.

Layered Three Bean casserole

Tuesday, February 09, 2010

I entered this recipe this morning but it won't share it on my friend feed or anyplace else that shows up when I add a recipe. I did not know what to fix for supper last night. My Good Housekeeping magazine (with the SparkPeople aricle) was in the "reading room". I told DH to think about what he wanted for supper while he was taking a shower after his workout. He ran right back out with the magazine and showed me the picture and the recipe. It may not be all that healthy, but with changes it can be. It wasn't bad and it can be a vegetarian dish, you can add meat if you want to, it can be a side dish or whatever. I'll have to add a picture later.

I was so tired last night, I went to bed at 11 - VERY early for me and I had trouble getting up at 8:30 this morning. (Yeah, I know it must be nice to sleep all day) Apparently I can't get a full 8 - 9 hours sleep and feel rested, I can only sleep 6-7 hours. I only did 2 laps for 1.5 miles today because I got up late and it was already warm. (My walking route is 3/4 in full sun so I duck under trees when they come along. I will do more cardio as well as strength training.

  


Happy 90th Birthday to my DADDY!

Monday, February 08, 2010

"Anyone can be a father, but it takes someone SPECIAL to be a DADDY" and that is MY DADDY. Today is my Dad's 90th birthday, I may be 52 and he may be 90, but he still is my Daddy! I am so very blessed that he is still with us today, he has undergone so many heart surgeries, he had prostate cancer and overcame that, he is a border line diabetic and he is on oxygen almost 24/7. He still looks forward to making the trip from Central NY to Eastern New Hampshire to my house every year and getting to see his 2 great grandsons. He is fortunate to be close to 2 of his 4 grandchildren and 1 of his 3 GREAT GRANDsons. He doesn't get around very well and he doesn't drive much anymore. I hope he will be around for many more years!


This is our family picture from July 2009, My parents in the front with the 3 great grandsons and my sister
the back row are the Grandchildren, that's me in the purple shirt.

    FANTASTIC!! 90 years old - he would have seen a few changes in his life time - numerous presidents, comings and goings of the old movie stars, the two world wars just to name a few events. How wonderful - Happy Birthday to your Daddy!

    You are so lucky to still have your dad. I miss mine so much sometimes and he's been gone almost 26 years. Enjoy him while he is still here.

Great looking family.

Sunday/Tuesday

Sunday, February 07, 2010

Today is like Tuesday in the real world, the second day of our work week. I went for another nice walk outside this morning, it was 67F when I went out and about 75 when I got back 50 minutes later. That is the only exercise I got in today. My legs were a little sore from yesterday, plus I am finding that I need 2 days rest anymore.

Tonight is the super bowl in the US but I am not getting up at 3AM to watch the game. They don't have the commercials here, only local ones.

    It was nice and warm there and it was only 13 in NH not including the wind chill. Super Bowl ended at around 10pm last night with a win for the Saints. Good come back for them it was a great game not one team dominated until the end with an interception from the Saints.

    Wow! It's that warm over there? It's been pretty chilly in Riyadh. At least you got out and walked. It's better than nothing. Keep it up!

    All the snow men and women here can imagine 67 degrees. No Super Bowl for us. No TV here in AR so we'll read or watch a DVD movie. I am opting for the Charles Dickens BBC series, but DS gave us the Mash show on D VD so DH may go for that.

Sounds like your exercise and walks are doing well. emoticon
