Saturday's Spark

Saturday, February 23, 2013

At times our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person. Each of us has cause to think with deep gratitude of those who have lighted the flame within us.

-~Albert Schweitzer


You all have sparked me to move on to another level. I have to give God the highest glory FIRST. My cheerleaders, faithful fans, Spark buddies, sorority sisters, and prayer warriors...
You know who you are!

I feel the spark every time you send words of encouragement, post humorous blogs, and give J-Man a shout out. (J-man is Jesus)

Sparking has caused me to grow more spiritually and physically. Yes, the bible is one of my key sources, but He sent me human angels like you all to fire me up when that spark seems so far away.

Early Progress

Monday, February 18, 2013

Since I didn't have to work today, I made it a point to get in more fitness and enjoy time with my big boy. He smiled most of the time. Apparently, this made him VERY happy.

At 8:30 AM, I awakened to take my Nexium and Singulair with water.
Ate a banana, dressed in workout gear. Determined or what?

My son says, "Mom, are we still going to the park?"
"Of course!" I replied. Can't break a promise to him or myself.

I planned to run more, but he can't keep up. My 9 year old was tired after 30 minutes. Imagine that! This 41 year old still had energy.

Might I add that I was the Monster and chased him, but HE was tired!!!

Oh. Is it obvious that I'm bragging about being fit?

After our playtime at the park, I told him we'd go walk/ jogging. He sighed.
Of course I reminded him that it was my turn to do what I wanted for 30 minutes. So he agreed. Don't ya just love reverse psychology?

After my windy walk/ jog, I returned him to " Spark".

Then breakfast consisted of 2 whole wheat pancakes, one boiled egg, a slice on lean smoked ham, and 1 slice of bacon.

Then, back to "sparking"...All before 11:00AM.

    Sounds fun. We all had the day off, so it was a fun family day. We went roller skating for a couple of hours and had a blast.

~~~Friday's Finale~~~

Friday, February 15, 2013

Today is the day for me to prepare for relaxation and working out.
I plan to kick up my feet,
Pour a glass of Moscato,
Turn on some Coltrane,
and chill like there's no tomorrow.
emoticon

It's Friday!
This is MY day...
No school on Monday (President's Day)
emoticon
I may have a few dollars to my name ***Emphasis on A FEW***,
But I'm still content knowing that I WILL CHILL.

Maybe a dollar movie emoticon
Walk on the beach (I'm jogging too) emoticon emoticon
Ya girl is ready!

It's Friday's Finale.

AHHHHHHH!!!!

    I'd go for a strawberry or two off the top, before the sugar was added. It does look yummy.
