On The Road Again!

Monday, June 20, 2011

emoticon On the road again! emoticon

Oh yes! Heading north! Toward family & friends in Ohio! Land where I was born & raised!

I'm getting a run in this morning before we leave! I'm only doing a half hour today, so I'll curtail my calories accordingly. I'm also gonna try to do my ST before we leave...or I'll do it when we get to the hotel. I'm gonna try to get 10,000 steps regardless, so I'll be moving around at every rest stop!

I've packed plenty of healthy stuff for the I'm good to go! emoticon

Everyone had a SPARKfabulous Monday! Next I check in, I should be in Georgia! I WILL be mindful of my choices today! You all take special care!

    Have a safe trip - I can never get my steps in when I travel. Too much time spent in the car - good luck.

    Way to go Rose...getting your exercise in no matter what your day holds!
You are an excellent role model...that we need to make our health a priority & it's a necessity!
I hope you have a fun and safe trip! Enjoy that reunion! I know you'll reach & exceed that 10,000 step goal, even on the road today!
Take Care! emoticon

Hug A Dad Today!

Sunday, June 19, 2011

Happy Father's Day to all the dads! emoticon one today, if ya can!
My dad has passed, but he lives on within me! You're in my thoughts dad!

Today I WILL finish packing as we're leaving early tomorrow morning to head up north! I never know what to pack cause the weather's so fickle up there! emoticon

Today I'll walk 60 min in the morning & 30 min in the evening w/hubby! I'm quite sore after the CARDIO BLAST & ZUMBA classes, so I'm taking a day off from the running!

I WILL weigh & measure my foods!
I WILL keep in calorie range!
I WILL drink the water!

EnJOY Dad's Special Day my dear friends! And do something FUN!

    I also have to reflect on my father's life today as he too has passed on. Yesterday was his birth day so he's really on my mind this time of year but always in my heart!

Enjoy your trip and can't wait to hear all about it.

My dad lives on with me, too! emoticon My DD wrote one my FB post of a picture of him that I have his "soft eyes" and his smile. That really touched my heart. I think she may have his compassionate nature; she knows how hard Father's Day is for me. emoticon

Say What?!!

Thursday, June 16, 2011

I've Gotta Do What?!! Measure & Weigh My Food?!!

Oh, all right! emoticon I know it works...& I CAN do it!

(Isn't the little one in the photo precious!) Smiling....

Okay, so ...

I WILL weigh & measure everything I eat today!
I WILL jog & walk this morning !
I WILL walk this evening w/hubby!
I WILL stay in caloric range!
I WILL drink the water!

I'll be heading up north to attend my 40th high school reunion in one week! Woohoo! Hubby & I are both very excited! I don't know if you all know this, but hubby & I attended the same junior high & high school & graduated together in 1971! Oh yes! I'm going to dig up a pic of us in our early days to post w/a current pic of us attending our reunion! It should prove interesting, and...

It should be good for a few laughs too! emoticon

EnJOY a SPARKtabulous Thursday my dear friends!
