Sprinkle around a little joy & laughter. :-)

Saturday, February 02, 2013



You know me, I love a good chuckle!! It's Saturday. What a great way to start the day, right?



This next one is soooooo me. I've often thought that if someone ever tried to kidnap me, they wouldn't keep me long. I'm thinking they'd call my husband & pay HIM to bring me back. emoticon



This one is good. I feel like this sometimes.



This happens to me once in awhile, too.



Don't let this happen to you. emoticon



When in doubt, work out!!



Have a fantastic Saturday!!

Blessings to you!! emoticon emoticon

300 calories & sugar cubes

Friday, February 01, 2013



This is for LISAN0415. Lisa suggested yesterday that I show you what 300 calories looks like. The best information I could find was on SparkPeople!! Imagine that! emoticon

The image above & a couple of the images below are also from SparkPeople.





Pretty eye-opening, huh?

For the entire article from SparkPeople with more images, here's the link:

www.sparkpeople.com/resource/nutriti
on_articles.asp?id=1260


Then I decided to take it a step further & show you the sugar content in a few items:







To see more about the sugar content of some foods, go to:

www.sugarstacks.com

Track your food carefully!!

Blessings to you!! emoticon emoticon

    Eye opening for sure. But when it comes to processed food sugar is not the only thing you need to worry about.

I would take those grapes any day/time. The nutritional content trumps sugar, unless I was diabetic.

Junk or real food.

Thursday, January 31, 2013



Wow! What a visual, huh? Here's another:



Eeeeek!!! Really brings you back to reality. Looking at that makes me want to spend ALL DAY at the gym, right? emoticon

Ok, how about this one:



30 little measly minutes out of all those minutes in a day doesn't seem so much, does it? It's all about priorities. Pixie-licious had a poster in her blog in the last couple of days that reminds us that losing weight is 20% exercise & 80% diet. Yowza!! You can lose your battle in the kitchen after all your hard work.

Ok, this next one is really, really good. I saw it on the SparkPeople FaceBook page yesterday:



Isn't that awesome? I really don't get enough sleep during the week, but unless I want to go to bed at 8:00 p.m., 7 hours is going to have to do it. I have noticed that if I've been puzzled over a problem that on the weekend, when I get a bit more sleep, the "committee of sleep" has worked it out for me. They're so good that way. emoticon

Ok, last visual for today:



Today: Spread those wings!!! Let me see you fly!!

Blessings to you!! emoticon emoticon

Beware of WW diet pills . . . ;-)

Wednesday, January 30, 2013



and cake, right? emoticon

One of the guys in my office made a cake & brought it in yesterday. He just recently discovered his love of baking. I have to say, it wasn't pretty at all. emoticon He admitted he was impatient & started to ice the cake before it was completely cool, so the icing became quite a mess. It was chocolate cake with chocolate icing -- not my fave. So as not to hurt his feelings, I did eat a very tiny piece yesterday (about 2 bites) & worked it into my plan (I just skipped a snack). It just shows you that pretty cakes can taste not so good & ugly cakes can be delicious, right? Lessons learned.

Do you know what your most important weight loss muscle is?



Sometimes you have to "play the game" with your brain to get the job done when it comes to a healthier lifestyle.

I think need to try some different kinds of exercise. I need to shake things up a bit to get over this plateau. It's time to get out of my comfort zone.



I need to stop putting limitations on myself & see what I can really do!!



Today: beware of those WW diet pills & cake. ;-)

Blessings to you!! emoticon emoticon

    I have to say my nemesis is cookies & bready things. I love the sugar too much. I havn't conquered that one quite enough yet, but I know if I want to continue in the right direction down the sparkly spark road, I will have to face it head on eventually. For now I take it in little pieces when I can. :0)
