Enjoying Warmer Temperatures...

Wednesday, June 08, 2011

Good Hump Day Sparkfam! Its a beautiful but very hot & humid day here in Chicago. I am staying inside as much as possible to keep from getting a bad sun tan or overwhelmed. So I am combating this heat by eating lighter & healthier. So I ate a bowl of cereal, then a sandwich for lunch, I did have half a sweet role but I will have a cup of strawberries & a slice of watermelon for snacks. My dinner will be baked chicken with a salad. Will I eat ice cream or not? Its too hot to eat anything that will make me feel heavy. So its time to dance & enjoy this day. My son went on luncheon & I am having my porch painted since its in much need of some attention.

My workout today was tons of walking & doing some cardio for 45minutes. So how do you enjoy the warmer temps without falling out?? Remember to be safe, check on your older brothers & sisters & those who have illnesses as well.

Wish I were there. . . .

God bless & enjoy everyday!

    Awesome that you still get out there. I have started taking a spray bottle out on my walks, filled with COLD water and spritz my face every once in a while to cool down!
I wish I could find the areosol bottles of mineral water I had years ago. Those were great for HOT days.

    Finally cooled off--what a difference, isn't it?? Yesterday morning I went out for a long fast walk with my hydration backpack--I need SO much water on those hot days! Last night I was out on the back porch potting herbs & flowers, & as I was cleaning up the wind starting blowing fiercely. The weather was changing right before my eyes. By the time I was at my computer doing some wind-down things, there was lots of thunder & lightning. Crazy!

Sorry I've not been over to say hi much. I'm going through some hard stuff in relation to the divorce, & at the same time work demands are pretty overwhelming. But God is good. I hope you're thriving!

    Good morning Dee! Hope your porch turns out great! We are going to get the house and garage painted but the guy is behind b/c of all the rain we had, so he should start within the next week or two! I stayed cool Weds by staying in with the air conditioner, it was too humid and miserable to be out. Keep up the great work girl! emoticon emoticon emoticon
