Journey with Friends and Who Are the Secret Guests?

23 May

Welcome my friends to our weekly issue of Journey with Friends.  This is a time that we come together for support, for encouragement, for fellowship – all with one single goal in mind – to live better.  Welcome to our journey to share our goals and our accomplishments and our disappointments and frustrations.

Together we can do this!

Hello sweet friends – How did you do last week?  I wore my imitation Fitbit 🙂 like a pro and recorded my steps everyday.  One day, I got up to almost 4,700 – awesome huh?  My goal right now is just 5,000 steps a day.  I’m building up to 10,000 and will probably increase it next month.

I’ve eaten really, REALLY light last week because you know we have our mysterious guests this week – happy dance.  So I wanted to make room to eat – anyone else do this?  Eat light one week when you know you are going to be having a blast in the upcoming week?

So I have to admit I’m going to be watching everything I eat this week…. as it goes in my mouth – snorts.  The DIEt is off for these days while our visitors are here but on the other hand we will be doing a lot of walking so that’s good, right?  And next week when everyone is gone 😦 , then we will be kicking it up a notch.

Hope your week goes well.  HUGS!

And can I get a drum roll?

They come from the land down under…

Fozziemom and Fozziedad!!!

    OMG! Well, first of all – good for you getting those steps going – they add up and do make a difference on the DIET front (and back..haha)……second of all, I had guessed it MIGHT be Fozziemum and Phil from Down Under…..OR……Katty and Mark from the Land of Easy…….I bet you four have a BLAST. We’ll TALK LATER (insert happy face here!)……….

    Love, Pam (and Sammy)

    When you have guests, the one thing you can do, while challenging is…drumroll… don’t eat the bread. I know, I know. Everything good comes on bread or with bread, but you can severely cut back. It makes all the difference in how you feel. Not to mention bloating.

    In restaurants, don’t eat the bread from the bread basket. If your meal comes on a bun, just eat the guts and leave the bun. You can order veggies instead of fries. Cover them with cheese even. Dessert? Cheesecake instead of regular cake – flourless, for the most part. Puddings,creme brulee, chocolate pie…the less flour, the better. The more you avoid flour, the better.

      This is most excellent advice my friend! Thank you so much. Thankfully I’m not a huge bread person as is but there are times so I’m definitely refraining. And the other good thing is the walking. Lots of walking I’m trying to get in. And the desserts and veggies – that’s great! I didn’t think about that. Hugs!!

    Congratulations on getting closer to 5000 steps, that is awesome! I admit these days I eat pretty much the same regardless of guests or out or not. I may skip one of my snacks if I had a bigger meal, but eating-wise I am totally boring:)
