HI Sparkies!

Wednesday, July 27, 2011

Kinda quiet day today. I worked on my routine more yesturday. A bit discouraged with the routine at the moment but I think that is part of the process. I'm hoping when I get a look at it today I'll feel better. Food was amazing again yesturday. We went to Red Robin with my good friend Kate and I had this awesome new Capresse Chicken Salad. Yum. Without the cheese of course. I tried a new Greek Yogurt frozen bar on a stick that I got for the house. It was so yummy. Strawberry. NO guilt there. Pretty low sugar and good for my stomache. Win win! Joe has been working so much since we've been back. I'll have to keep an eye on him. He's not 22 anymore and he needs rest sometimes. I'm going to set up a date night this weekend. I think its very needed for both of us after a family vaca where we were with each other for 9 days. Have a great day!


Woo Hoo ! Offered another job today!!!!

Tuesday, July 26, 2011

Wow! I woke up at 9:18am and had a class at 9:30! I guzzelled some Listorine and threw on some workout gear and headed out to class. After an awesome class the instructor asked me if I could substitute for her while she is out in September!!!!!! Yay!!!! Of course I said yes. I'm going to do a couple songs with her on Monday night at her gym. I'm so psyched!!!! Now I am definitely motivated to get this routine down. Food was great yesturday! Today I've made a salmon salad with broccoli tomatoes and lowfat cheddar. Yum. I only had a pack of cashews for breakfast because I was running out the door. I will add some healthy calories in because of this. I'm gonna try to get those projects started today since I did none of it yesturday. It's easy to get distracted today though because it is gorgeous outside. I feel that bubble of depression lifting lately. I know Mike said in about 6 months I should be doing so much better and it is so true. I'm a bit emotional because I seriously never thought I'd be feeling this bright and aware and ready to tackle the world again. I'm so blessed with all the people and support I have had during this process and I know I will need you all through so much but I send you all the most positive energy I can for all you have done for me so far. I am here for you all and look forward to all the bright days ahead. Have a wonderful summer day my friends!

What an amazing day yesturday!!!!

Monday, July 25, 2011

I slept until 9 30am. Yay!!! We got ready for the day and went to the mall to get apple tv. I'm not a techie but Joe and the kids were in their glory in the Apple store. I went to Starbucks and got myself a yummy iced decaf soy latte with sugar free carmel and a drizzle of chocolate. Yum!!! Mike met us there and we headed to lunch at this great little bistro about 45 minutes away. It was a beautiful day for a drive and Mike drove with us so alot of fun conversation on the way there. I had a small antipasta salad. No cheese and balsamic dressing. Yum again. Great conversation and hanging out and laughing on a beautiful day. We went to the mall later and saw the movie Horrible Bosses. How hillarious. OMG. My mouth hurt afterwards because of all of the laughing. We came home and set up the apple tv. It took a while. I read my book while they played around with it. When they got it together I realized I can use it to help alot with my Zumba routine. Score! I had leftover baked chicken for dinner and a truffle bar for dessert. Great food choices and great time with family. Loved it!!!!! I also worked on my routine this morning. Another song down!!! Yay!!!

Thanks Sparkpeeps!!

Sunday, July 24, 2011

I'm sending a general but huge thank you to all of my amazing Spark friends for being here for me yesturday!!!! I was overwhelmed by the support you all thrust on me after my downer I was giving myself. As the day went on I was soooo happy I had a moment the day before because I unexpectedly ended up working out for about 3 hours total before the day was out!!!!! I went to my hip hop class in the morning which was awesome. I hadn't been there in a while and the instructors sat with me for quite a while after class talking about the opportunity I was giving to start a class in the fall. I came home feeling great and waited unitl my fellow Zumba instructor friend to come over to work on our routines. When she got here I realized she was so much farther ahead than I am and we basically worked on my stuff for over 2 hours!!!! We met my family at Smokey Bones for dinner and went to my nephews baseball game. We didn't get home until 10 30ish. What a day. I ate awesome , Greek yogurt for breakfast, left over baked chicken and cottage cheese for lunch, thrown together after all that Zumba. Activia yogurt for snack and pulled pork with broccoli for dinner. Have a great day!

I saw a bad day coming.

Saturday, July 23, 2011

I don't know why it was coming. I was so awesome with food on vaca. I felt it. Maybe its a hormonal thing. We went to the flooring store to order our new kitchen flooring and basement carpet. There is an amazing little italian resturant out there. We went for lunch and I had Chicken Sorentino. Without the cheese but it is still breaded. I ate the whole thing. It was delicious. Headed home and ate pretty regular until hubby thought ice cream sounded good. I jumped right on that band wagon and husseled the kids into the car. I did have sugar free ice cream but knew I was headed in a bad direction. Josh was having 3 friends over for a sleepover. So of course we had to get pizza and wings for them. I ate 2 slices of pizza and 5 wings. Then had a skinny cow truffle bar. Later had a low carb beer. Zumba was canceled so it was the ultimate in bad choices and no expending of energy. Uggggg. What a fail. I'm going to my hip hop class today. Then My Zumba friend is coming over to practice our routines together. I plan on jumping in the pool too. I will eat perfect today. No playing around. I just can't figure it out sometimes. I will let it go.

    I applaud your ability to take your own and everyone else's advice on this subject - Let it go and Move on. You're not about to let one bad day get you down. Full Speed Ahead !

    Here is a motivating thought: One bad day can be canceled out by two good days. (This is a little motto I tell myself "the morning after.") We all have these slips. The key to long term success is moving on.

    Pfft. I don't see a problem here. You strayed a bit from your plans, and you are now right back in line. A successful day of eating? No. But not a fail.

Let yourself breath a bit. It's not about perfection.

    I'm with everybody else: be proud of the healthy choices you made: Truffle bar, low carb beer. Just keep going from here.

    I went over my calories yesterday by almost 400 calories! And I was unable to exercise except for very little swimming. I did not even log it in.

I had a crispy chicken and a blizzard for lunch/snack. Then I had veal sorentino for dinner last night. Although it was not breaded maybe flour? I never had it breaded before. However, I did have my mozzarella. Still any of this would have been fine if I just watched and made better decisions before and after. It was a string of no-nos that made me go over, no one decision cause this. I am chucking it up to Tom & aunt Flo's visiting. I am so tempted when their in town!

Good luck with today!

    Sometimes after one bad day you will take off a couple of pounds. I don't know why. :)

    One bad day doesn't deserve a spanking! You can look back and say "That food was so good and I deserved every bite but I choose not to do it again today". You'll probably shake it off practicing Zumba today. Keep moving & grooving! emoticon Hugs, Keke

    One bad day won't bring you down. :)
At least you realize it and recommitted to starting fresh today & with all that exercise you have planned for today- your body will burn off those extra calories in notime!

    Letting it go is the wise choice. Remember, you are generating a lifestyle. That means not everyday is perfect. Some days you will not make healthy choices and that is OK as long as it isn't every day, or even every week. Once you reach your goal you can give yourself one day a week to eat something special if you eat clean all week. Until then realize there will be birthdays, holidays, family outings, and other special occassions. You made some good choices about which you should feel good. Your resolute to get right back on program which is excellent. You have a positivie attitude which is the most important factor. I'd say you are doing emoticon
