Jacque's Sunday SWEET STUFF!!

 
 
Happy day to everyone!!! I hope that you are all having a delightful weekend and are enjoying your moments/hours of crafting. Many of you have sent me such sweet emails and notes asking why I have not been crafting as much and the answer is very simple...I just don't have the time at the moment to sit down and do much of anything. My cancer doctors gave me a very strict regimen of lots of cardio training and weight-bearing training to rid my body of the remaining chemo and radiation and to insure that my bones stay healthy and strong. I think I would much prefer to be sitting at my craft table rather than sweating, BUT I also want to live a longer healthier life...haha Those activities take most of my day. Some of you know that I am very involved with Zumba classes for part of my cardio (averaging about 10 hours a week) and have been spending time running 2 miles almost every day. In addition, I am doing weight training and boot camp classes. I will soon be able to take on Rocky Balboa methinks...lolol...not so bad for a 66 year old cancer survivor, huh? So that's the reason I don't have many cards/projects of late but I will have some soon and will continue to offer my weekly Jacque's Sunday SWEET STUFF (as long as I can afford it...haha) so let's just hang in there...tougher and tougher!!! Smiles!!
 
I hope I have put together something for this week that you would like to have in your stash...so here goes....
 
 
 
20 Bunches of Mulberry Roses
1 Set of Inkadinkado An Affair of the Heart Stamps
3 Sets of Making Memories Eclectic Metal Signs - Bliss, Birthday, and Moroccan Frames
 
The rules are the same as always!
In order to be eligible for the prize, all you need to do is leave your info with the little Blue Froggy below. I would appreciate your being one of my followers and would hope that you would share the Jacque's Sunday SWEET STUFF on your sidebar, although those are not requirements for entering the draw. If you don't have a blog, just skip over the URL request and leave your information. Remember that the closing each week is on Tuesday at midnight my time (ET). Be sure to check back on Wednesdays to see if you are the lucky winner...I will not be contacting the winner because many of you do not have email addresses listed.

 
Good Luck to Everyone!!!!

So So Proud of You!!! You are better than before!!!

Thank you for the goodies - I'd love to participate! ♥

WOW thank you so very much for another chance to win this gorgeous candy here, and now I also finally have found out, how to add it to my sidebar too, so you´re there finally.
Good to hear, you´re taking sooo good care of yourself sweetie, I really wish I could do a bit more of this too, but I´m the opposit and have doctors to tell me to sit still, if I don´t want more damage, and that is really hard, when you´re used to race out of the road with 180 in the outerlane LOL.
But hopefully we can both keep better by listening to the doctors, who ought to be the smartest, or so I hope LOL
Have a wonderful week ahead hun.

Good grief Jacque, you shame the rest of us :D You are soooo fit! I really need to pick up my weight-bearing exercise, I have osteoporosis but because I'm only 25 I still have a small window to turn it around a bit.

Thanks for the chance to win goodies as well :)

Tine said...

Gosh, that is a lot of time at exercise classes etc. At one point I was at the gym for about an hour a day everyday of the week & as I have to walk there & back (just over a mile each way) that took up too much of my time. Had to cut back so I could craft!!!! LOL.
Thanks for offering candy again, Jacque. Have a good week.

once again I am going to tell you just how proud of you I am! good for you to be doing so much exercise and weight training! I think I will try to follow your example this week, albeit in baby steps, and attempt a bit of some sort of exercise this week. hopefully it will help me to feel a bit better. I'm so weary of missing out on so much of life...

Good Morning Jacque
Thank you for your inspiration and a chance to win such beautiful goodies! I was wondering if you have ever checked into the work of Dr. Josh Fuhrman - it addresses never having cancer again plus all illnesses that shorten life! It is amazing - it works for the weight loss,
Marcie

Vick said...

Hi Sweetie,

I thought it was time I said hi again, I do add posts to you but don't hear anything from you so I thought I would pop in and say Hi, just so you know I am still around and thinking of you, hugs honey, I'll pop back again soon xxx Vick

Ann Marie Governale said...

Hi Jacqui.. you have just inspired me.. just had my annual stress test (I am 55) and all went very well but the cardiologist made it very clear that I must begin regular cardio exercise, not only for my heart, but also to ward off any breast cancer. As my sister was diagnosed the breast cancer at 40 years old, and because of early diagnosis, she is a 20 survivor as I write this, I should know better.. but the conversation with the doctor hit home for some reason and then today, opening my email and reading your blog post only confirmed what I planned to do.. So, off to the gym today to sign up and begin.. I hope I can get in as good a shape as you.. I did at one time work out very regularly, but life got in the way (some surgeries too) and it all slipped away. But seeing what you are acccomplishing, I am inspired to give it a try. I am beginning with small steps.. half hour of cardio 5x week and hopefully get back to my weights. I am loving the zumba too.. Thank you for always being an inspiration to us all with your generous spirit! xxx Ann Marie

Simone said...
