Its been a beautiful Monday here in Chicago. I mean blue skies & 64 degrees about 72 in the sun. Its a chilly 54degrees in my office so the open toe shoes & drinking cold water is giving me chill bumps. YIKES! Speaking of which, I inhaled water today. No I wasn't swimming, I was standing up about to take a swig of water & the water splashed up & went in my nose. You wanna talk about hurt, I mean it didn't last longer than 10minutes. BUT I had burning pain in my nose & my nasal passage was feeling quite sore & I felt light headed. I guess this is as close to near drowning as I'm gone get cause I don't believe in putting my head underwater under NO circumstances.

Yes, I love beautiful beaches with white sand but I just like to observe not play. Its that weird. Anyho, I cooked up a storm yesterday. I had meatloaf, baked salmon, baked chicken, broiled crab legs, bertolli's tuscan braised beef & potato (microwave of course), sweet potato pie, & yellow corn. I mean, my husband couldn't eat it all & I just gave them all a taste. He just kept asking me why did I cook all this? It truly didn't go together but I was cleaning out my freezer & frig for the holidays. Got to make room for that turkey & ham. YUMMY!!

So got up early this morning, I jumped right into my workout clothes & got instep with Gilad Total Body Sculpt, Dance & Be Fit, watched Joyce Meyer to keep that glory flowing, did Sharon Mann Kickboxing & Tai Chi & then did Namaste Yoga all from FitTv. It felt great to get most of my workout done. I did some shopping with my son (who came to work with me) to get my steps up & just to get out & enjoy this glorious day!

I was nearly good today in my eating. My breakfast, scrambled egg, blueberry yogurt, toast & caramel delight coffee. Snack a hostess twinkie, lunch homemade chili, keebler crackers & strawberry yogurt. I did have some Werthers Caramel Hardcandy. They are light & so good!! I have to admit, yesterday I had a caramel affy tapple. Its a caramel dipped apple, the apple was so fresh & the caramel was PERFECT!! This is the only time of year I indulged & it was soooo good.

So tonight, its abs & stretch & just some relaxing & reading the word.

What are you doing for you today for your health? After all this is the main reason we Spark.

God bless & here's to you for all you do!!

    Wow, what an amazing amount of cooking you did--& everything sounds great. And you put a lot of variety into your morning workout--wow!

    It's no longer Monday, but I can report that I have gotten up for morning exercise every weekday thus far--mostly fast walking in the neighborhood, because our weather IS so beautiful these days! emoticon

    I'm glad you are having such a WONDERFUL day today and the weather is agreeing with you Sis emoticon !

    Today is my strength training day in the gym with my trainer. I know she's going to kick my butt as usual, but I need it emoticon . She has me do this circuit training type deal where I do 2-3 machines then hit the treadmill and jog it out hard. The first half of the workout is cool, but when I get down to my last couple of machines (which are focused on legs), I swear that my legs are going to crumble right beneath me..

    Well, enjoy the rest of your day and I'll check on ya tonight or tomorrow.

    Girl you did some cooking on Sunday. I cook like that once or twice a year or when lots of company will be over to eat it up. I'm doing good today. Happy about my Word study and being consistent in the things of God.

    You must be eating those small twinkies. I just can't think of you eating real twinkies everyday. emoticon

    Thanks for the blog. Made me hungry. lol

    I've did that before w/water and it's not a happy feeling at all. Drowning in a cup of water...and coughing too. Have to drink slower.

    Today, I went on a loooong walk with my son. Well, he was in the stroller napping.
    It was a beautiful day here.

    well girl you survived your almost drowning. Sorry. At least you were not drinking it when it went up your nose. I was attending college at the time. I got a hot chocolate from the drink machine and took a drink got strangled on it and hot chocolate came out of my nose. I decided to throw the whole thing away. I have never drank hot chocolate again emoticon
