My goal for today was to get my weekend house work completed emoticon

I am trying to continue to eat healthy, so I try to make homemade meals. That way I know exactly what I am putting in my mouth and how much. emoticon

Next thing I wanted to do today is decrease my official 5k time by ANOTHER 2 minutes. (Not today, better luck next time)

Even though I did not decrease my time I still had a great Jog/walk today. I took one of
my pups with me. We were trying out a new leash I bought at the dog show yesterday.

(Kisses loved it,pink is my favorite color ;) )

During our walk Kisses and I encounter two German shepards , they were behind the fence but they kept jumping on the gate and it popped open. The one german shepard came charging at Kisses, but Kisses did GREAT. She coward a little when the big dog came at her but she just continued to walk with me. Thank goodness the owner was in the yard with his dogs and he retrieved them before anything happened.

This was kisses after the big dog charged at her looking back to see where it was.

I was thinking let me swing by the house and grab one of my other pups but Kisses and I had such a great pace I decided to keep going.

They were so mad at Kisses (Harley on the left ,Hugs in the middle, Kisses on the right)

It was getting dark so I kicked up the pace a bit and as I rounded the corner for home and looked up at the sky, the colors were beautiful.

I'm hoping we all get a good nights sleep, I know Kisses will!

All in all I had a very productive day!

I hope everyone had a SPARKTACULAR day. I know I did.

Think Positive!

Thursday, November 15, 2012

1..Avoid words like No-Don't- Not-Can't

2..Think positive at all times..think I can, I will

3..Visualize yourself the way you want to look and feel!

4 Committ to your dream, make changes to achieve that dream, daily repetitions will give you that dream

5..Choose to create all of this or something better.

This made sense to me, so I am going to commit to this, positive vibes everyday..wake up knowing you *Can* do what is necessary, when you actually think about it , it is not a big deal, eat healthy, do a bit of exercise, and drink some water...this is so doable for us all!

Have a sparktacular day Spark Pals

What a work out!

Sunday, November 11, 2012

Today I intended to decrease my time on my original Trick or Treat Trot 5k.

I thought since it was a beautiful day I would take my pups with me. I headed out on my first mile with the two "yellow dogs" That's what we call Hugs and Kisses

Kisses did very well she stayed right with me, now for Hugs she was more interested in everything else... Squirrels, other dogs, and even leaves blowing around. So I was not able to get in to a rhythm like I normally do.

After the first mile and a half I dropped off the "yellow dogs" and picked up my other pup "Harley"

She did really well on the leash but continued to stop in front me every time she saw a squirrel. Making me trip. I really though I was going to fall a few times.

I had a really good work out but it actually took me seven minutes longer then my original 5k. Thats ok my pups were sure happy being out in this beautiful weather here in Pa.

Hope everyone had a SPARKTACULAR day

Spark on

    I know how "the girls" love being out with you, Meliss. Sounds like a really nice day even if your workout wasn't exactly what you'd planned.

    Running with dogs takes coordination! LOL! I consider it "dancing with the dog".

Great job with making your pup's happy.

Afternoon Walk

Sunday, October 28, 2012

I wanted to get my walk in before "Hurricane Sandy" hit. When I left the wind was kicking up but not so bad. About 15 minutes into my walk, don't you know here comes the rain. At first it wasn't so bad, a little sprinkle. So I kept going.

While walking our neighborhood I was admiring some of the neat halloween decoration. I saw some scary pumpkins, a headless horseman, and some of the good old fashion ghost and goblins. But as I rounded the corner I saw the scariest decoration in my life

I was so scared I ran past that house as fast as I could

Then the rain really started coming down, it was cold it was coming down sideways hitting me in the face. So I headed for home. Didn't get to walk as far or as long as I wanted, that's ok tomorrow is another day.

Here is me after my walk

My poor Hoody

Hope everyone has a SPARKTACULAR day

Stay safe I'm hitting the showers.

    You stay safe and I hope you get nothing worse than some sideways rain.
