Sun, 8 Jun 2014 13:36:22 EST long day http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5700146 What a long day and it's only half over. I just did 8.5 hours and I still have appointments today Wed, 21 May 2014 16:16:17 EST Time for my monthly entry http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5699130 Alright time for a visualization. Where do I see myself in ten years? I hope I'm retired living close to a lake where fishing is a great option along with walking a small dog. The simple life where the meals are home-cooked and healthy <em>30</em> Tue, 20 May 2014 10:28:26 EST short http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5686092 Decent day Fri, 2 May 2014 22:58:59 EST a great day :-) http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5680603 Today was a great day Fri, 25 Apr 2014 23:07:59 EST what a day http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5675444 I went to run an appointment & had to reschedule Sat, 19 Apr 2014 00:31:32 EST what a day :) http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5668900 What a day, I did fantastic :) A real good strength workout then work. We were very busy even late. My helper (who leaves at 7pm) and I made 20 pizzas, stocked the fast food pinacle and lived to tell about it. It will carry on today with my sales job. <em>30</em> Thu, 10 Apr 2014 10:02:21 EST 88 minutes http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5655044 I tried a high intensity interval training mixed with strength training. OMG that was really tough. I feel great Mon, 24 Mar 2014 03:49:00 EST worked too much http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5654278 I got a call @7am to go to work early so I pulled a 13+ hour work day I'm exhausted Sun, 23 Mar 2014 00:38:16 EST Motivation central http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5651563 Ok day 7 and I'm still at it. I took a big plunge today and bought the sparkcoach for a year. Wish me luck. Tomorrow I'm back to running appointments I will get a sale then. Wed, 19 Mar 2014 12:26:10 EST I will keep this up and maybe add more http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5646908 I started doing shour workouts using the workout videos on the site. I feel great! I'm hoping this will make the night shift at the Casey's kitchen easier. Wish me luck. Thu, 13 Mar 2014 11:30:33 EST It's been how long? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5632315 OK it has been way too long since I posted but since I've added new friends I should post something. Today I start my new schedule working in a kitchen full time and selling air cleaning products part time. I'm still going to be very busy and probably not post as often as I should but, I will have a little more time for exercise and watching what I eat. Mon, 24 Feb 2014 09:29:15 EST hi all http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5134200 wow it's been a long time. Oh well I'm back. The career has made a turnaround and I'm now a junior partner. I still have my ups and downs but I'm hanging in there. <BR> <BR> I've made some great strides on the health side. My numbers are all in the healthy range finally. <BR> <BR> Tue, 13 Nov 2012 15:42:56 EST I'm thankful for Sundays http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5031784 It's been a crappy week. A total stranger told me I take advantage of the elderly and am generally unethical. BOLOGNIE! Those who know me will tell anyone that I'm honest and ethical to a fault. Man it makes me mad when that happens. I won't repeat what my thoughts were after that encounter. Albeit it be said I wanted to punch the individual in the face and give him a lesson of his own. Thankfully it's a new week and most people don't make those assumptions. My gym is closed today so ... Sun, 26 Aug 2012 14:13:33 EST Happy Sunday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5022102 I'd like to wish those of you who check out my blog a great day! I would have to say I've turned the corner at work and am now making a decent living so God willing that will continue. It restores my faith that most people want to breathe clean air and are willing to buy products that can accomplish that. There are a few people who still won't acknowledge they have a problem no wonder there is a healthcare crisis. My weight loss and workouts are going great. So I guess I'm just content. ... Sun, 19 Aug 2012 17:23:10 EST A great Sunday! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5002253 Well I started by winning a spark low impact exercise video <em>252</em> <em>224</em> then got a great walk in in perfect weather. 69 when I started. Met my husband and our dog Ashley at the park then walked home. My calories are on track after going over yesterday unfortunately. I should still be at a calorie deficit for the week. What a great day! Oh and I had some sales this week but I still think people like to live in filth way too much. Sun, 5 Aug 2012 17:47:13 EST hi all http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4994925 ok I'm waiting again. Today I filled out an application for a different job. This could be very good if people actually wanted to breath clean air. I wonder why they complain so much when a landfill needs to be opened but have dirtier air in their homes and don't want to do anything about it. It's just this kind of apathy that is ruining our country. Even partially the apparent apathy with the obesity problem. Oh well if I can't beat them I might as well promote their slow self destruc... Tue, 31 Jul 2012 14:50:06 EST lazy day http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4992007 Something I rarely do I took a complete day off. Alas except for posting this blog. It feels great. Everyone have a great week and I'll be back at it tomorrow. Sun, 29 Jul 2012 17:58:33 EST turnaround http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4990924 What a great turn around this week. I'm finally making some sales at work which means making money. Gee that feels good to not need the unemployment payments. I broke the ice and made 2 decent sales in 2 days. My workouts are going good although I didn't do my normal 2 hours everyday this week so I'm falling in the minutes and points. Oh well everything's in balance now Sat, 28 Jul 2012 20:38:02 EST hot sunday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4981973 Well I'm back it's Sunday and currently 94 degrees outside. I took a walk this morning and according to the map about 5 miles. It felt great. I'm still working on selling my product. It seems like everyone likes breathing dirty air even after showing the benefits of breathing good air. I don't understand these people. I feel like wants to die being on oxygen or whatever. Well so be it then they are the stupid ones and they will regret their decision in the long run. Sorry for venting.... Sun, 22 Jul 2012 17:03:40 EST my good day http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4971660 Well maybe not good I just checked my calories and I'm 500 under. Oh well I get a snack tonight <em>41</em> . I took a nice walk this morning the got home and was getting a bowl of cereal with soy milk and nuts then later I vomited it back up otherwise it would have been a great day. Oh well I feel better now I guess I just needed to get it out of my system. Have a great week! Sun, 15 Jul 2012 18:38:47 EST saturday off http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4970676 Well I got a Saturday off. I really couldn't afford that but being at home this afternoon was nice. I'm getting worried about money though I've not broken through to making a lot of sales that I need to survive. I really need to focus on what works to make my clients buy my product. I do feel it is a really good product. My workouts are going great. I do some classes and also some activtrax workouts when I work too late to go to 5:30am classes. But I do miss my friends at that classes... Sat, 14 Jul 2012 23:53:30 EST I'm back you may not want to hear me today I'm fustrated http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4967884 Ok I'm feeling really frustrated. I'm trying to sell a great product that will help just about everyone out there. Why is investing in your health and the life of household items such a bad thing. Why don't people see this. Maybe I'm not showing enough but what value do some people put on the health and well being of their families. I just don't get it. Is it like they want to get sick because we all will. Check out your cleaning supplies and tell me that most of them don't contain fo... Thu, 12 Jul 2012 22:26:28 EST couch potato http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4961089 ok today I was a couch potato for the first time in years. I really hope my shoulder is better tomorrow morning so I can do body pump. Even if I go light on the workout. Which is a definite possibility. I just want to get back into it after taking 3 days off. This is driving me crazy. I'll have to admit I feel a little better today and with the rest I think that is what I needed. Thanks to everyone who told me to listen to my body. I thought this would be the best way to inform everyo... Sun, 8 Jul 2012 20:18:53 EST heat wave http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4955528 It was hard to make a plan of action today. The gym was closed. It was 80 degrees by 8 am. So I went to the mall and walked for an hour and 40 minutes. Then went to Sears and bought an on sale moisture wicking bra for only $8 I was amazed, Then I also bought a set of resistance bands to use as an at home backup to working out. So I would say it was very productive. Wed, 4 Jul 2012 19:57:02 EST good day http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4952528 Well I started out at bodypump walked and did an elliptical as far as work I'm disappointed. My morning appointment fell through and so did my 5:30 so only 2 appointments for today. Mon, 2 Jul 2012 20:21:08 EST hi all http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4950643 Well I've got my great attitude back. I made some sales that earned me a little money. I just wish I had a little more time to work out. I'm getting them in at goal but not the 2+ hours I was doing oh well I do need to make some money I'll get over it. Sun, 1 Jul 2012 17:08:32 EST the lastest dilema http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4944454 Well this morning I had a problem that I have been dieing to get I went on an interview with Walmart. Unfortunately it was only part time. So I said I wasn't interested. Wed, 27 Jun 2012 10:24:39 EST Tuesday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4942663 My friend came by last night and was truly sorry that she didn't realize how her actions affected my feelings. I feel better after yesterday anyway I guess I just had to get the feelings out of my system. I'm sorry I unloaded on anyone who read this blog. Hey and it's a new day and I wish everyone out there a great one! <em>345</em> Tue, 26 Jun 2012 05:48:00 EST the next day http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4941559 Ok I skipped the class I normally take on Monday morning so I wouldn't have to face her. I did do a different workout so hopefully I worked out my frustrations. Let's see if I can get some presentations done today since they extended the weekend for demos. Mon, 25 Jun 2012 11:59:11 EST let down http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4940594 I guess I need someone to shock me. I asked my workout buddy for a little assistance that would take no more than 2 hrs with my new job. And she blew me off. I don't know what to do. I feel what goes around comes around but do I really want to point it out. She has been a good friend at times and I try not to take advantage of the friendship but I just don't know now. I guess I'll just see what happens tomorrow at the gym. Maybe I just need some time to get over it. Sun, 24 Jun 2012 19:53:21 EST Here I go http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4939368 I've been practicing my newest product. Air cleaners and an air cleaning vacuum cleaner. Both FDA approved as a class 2 medical devise not covered by most insurances but are deductible from taxes as medical expense. I really think this is a wonderful product and really want one for myself. If your in the Cedar Rapids Iowa area I would love to show it to you contact me. Sat, 23 Jun 2012 19:59:27 EST new job http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4936861 What a roller coaster. I feel like everything I did today changed by the end of the day. Tomorrow will be another day. Thu, 21 Jun 2012 21:35:10 EST new job http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4935210 I made it thru the first day of training and am in the process of being sold on the product I will be selling. I will be selling an FDA approved air filter that removes 99.9999% of air pollution from the air including .3 micron impurities. Better than hippa filters. I'll keep everyone updated. Have a great evening. Wed, 20 Jun 2012 19:14:59 EST new job http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4933580 Great news I got a new job today. It sounds like something I may really enjoy. I get to help people with allergens in their homes get the problem resolved. I'm excited to get started tomorrow with training. Wish me luck. I have a bad feeling that I went over my calorie limit. I had a small shake from dairy queen it was sooo hot. I did get a great workout in this morning so hopefully I should still have a calorie deficit since I did spinning a moderate walk and a 1 mile swim. Tue, 19 Jun 2012 18:08:35 EST workout buddies http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4931607 I'm glad I had a workout buddy this morning and so was she <em>244</em> We both agreed that we would have slept in if we hadn't committed to each other to be there. Always appreciate your workout buddies they can keep you focused on those early mornings. So I made it to BodyPump then we took a walk she went to work and I went on to the elliptical and then spent about 10 minutes just stretching that was wonderful. Mon, 18 Jun 2012 13:15:24 EST Father's day http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4930297 today I took it easy I guess I did a 4.2 mile walk and cooked dinner for my Dad. Jim grilled thick pork chops and I made a side dish of arugula with chick peas and lemon garlic sauce. We also had cole slaw and lite ice cream with strawberries. It was a very good meal now all I have to do is my ab workout. A nice relaxing day. Sun, 17 Jun 2012 16:04:55 EST farmer's market http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4929042 I had a nice walk with my workout and party friend at the farmer's market after they cancelled yoga this morning. I picked up lots of good vegetables and a couple baked goods. We did go to spinning and that was good too. Sat, 16 Jun 2012 13:43:04 EST It's Friday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4927802 I just got a job interview <em>244</em> I just hope it goes well. Let me rephrase that it will go great and I'll get the job. For today I went to my spinning class and then did the Activtrax workout. I feel refreshed now. Fri, 15 Jun 2012 13:23:55 EST I was tired this morning and sore http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4924746 Well after bodypump and my walk I was thinking about stopping and taking a break as I was kinda sore. Then on my way to the fitness center I saw the tai chi class and said why not that kinda felt good last week and went in and had a great time and a good final burn. So I will classify it as good <em>224</em> Wed, 13 Jun 2012 11:48:09 EST changes http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4923582 Well I didn't follow my original plan to do another brick this morning. After my friend said she wasn't going to workout this morning i decided to go for a swim and a yoga class. It was refreshing to do something different. I haven't done this combination for over a month so it was good to work out with my mother again in the yoga class. I even got to introduce her to another workout buddy. Then I went to the quarter day at the goodwill and treated myself to 2 pairs of shorts and a pair ... Tue, 12 Jun 2012 16:06:45 EST just another day http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4922132 I did create a recipe for eggs sausage with cheese if your interested. Other than that I went to the gym this morning for BodyPump a walk and some time on the elliptical. On Wednesday I should get my Y water bottle. Part of the 100 days of summer Mon, 11 Jun 2012 18:50:46 EST the morning after http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4920396 Well I had another girls night out. This time I did a little better. I didn't drink too much, I did eat a little too much. But for the week I'm still under. And since I did this along with dancing I feel that I still lost for the day. Then this morning I took off on a long walk and met Jim and our dog Ashley for a short walk then walked home. Man it was hot by the time I got home. Then got here just as they arrived home too. Now I'm relaxing in the air conditioning. Sun, 10 Jun 2012 16:54:09 EST I broke thru I think http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4919024 I think I broke my plateau today. I braved the scale at the gym and was down 1.5 lbs. I never believe it until it stays there next week though. But it was a real good feeling to be down again. Sat, 9 Jun 2012 14:32:54 EST not much today http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4918215 Just another Friday spinning and weight training. Fri, 8 Jun 2012 20:50:05 EST I'm here http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4916404 That's about all I have to say for today. I did do a 2 mile swim (72 laps) then rewarded myself with a sit in the hot tub. That felt great! Thu, 7 Jun 2012 14:19:19 EST
