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 friends – how did you do last week? I walked 17,906 steps which is equivalent to 8.48 miles. Not bad. I am up from last week. I’m still trying to shoot for 5,000 steps a day which is still not happening…yet 🙂 I have faith that I will get there soon. It’s such a balance of walking for health but yet not walking to hurt with my rheumatoid arthritis. But it’s getting there. I didn’t lose any more weight last week but I’m okay with that since I lost so much right off. So – the goal for the next week is to walk more and eat better. I can do that – you can do that!
I also had some blood work done last week and got my results back. My cholesterol is right on key – no problems. My A1C went from a 10 to an 8 so I’m on key with that going down. I get blood work done again in 3 months. I’m hoping to have that A1C down to at least a 7 or below by then. I’m keeping my fingers crossed.
So how did you do my sweet friends? How was your journey to a better life?
