Surprise in the Mail and a Quick Update


Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Friday, June 08, 2012


One of my awesome SparkBuddies sent me a surprise in the mail and I just had to show you. Thanks, Jodi!

While we were outside, I figured I'd show you a few things we're working on. We're hoping to finally tape the latest hoop challenge song this weekend and I'm practicing some new moves for it. I can pull off a chest roll some of the time now. I hardly ever smack myself in the face while attempting it. See how practice pays off? Ha ha! I also do a spastic one arm duck out. I just switched to doing this on a smaller hoop, so yeah, it's pretty spastic. I have one other really sweet move that I've been practicing, but I'm gonna wait til the next video to show you. The poi stuff is going well. I'm learning turns and I'm proud to say that I only whacked myself in the back three times today. Progress! Learning new things is so much FUN!

Update on the 9 Week Food Tracking/Planning Project:
WOOHOO!! I've planned and tracked every meal this week. And get this--it's Vacation Bible School week. We have to leave the house by 5:45 every evening, which means we have to eat an early dinner. This is the first VBS week we've ever managed to have home cooked meals every single day. I consider this either a Part The Red Sea Miracle or a Sign Of The Apocalypse. Either way, Week One is almost over and I'm feeling pretty good about it.

Have a Sparktacular weekend!!

Okay, this spoils the big "reveal" in the video, but I couldn't resist adding this pic that Audrey snapped.

    You do look slim in the Kermit shirt and jeans. Exercise has sure made changes in your pictures, is your husband noticing?

    Hey Shelli,
You are a hoopin' rock star! Love watching your videos! You look positively thin in that t-shirt! No more modeling big girl workout clothes, though, you're too little now! Keep up the great work!

    So, I'm catching up on blogs since I've been mia for awhile, but of course thoroughly enjoyed yours. I LOVE the kermie shirt - goes so well with your hoops - and you are doing some amazing things with those hoops and poi! You make me want to get some hoops and start learning. Perhaps that will have to be a reward at some point for me. :o)

Also, I love that your planning all your meals. I used to rock at that but need to get better about it again. It's always easier in the summer with all the fresh local produce options. Anyway, keep it up! You're doing fabulously! (And I love the cup surprise you got in the mail too!)
