Journey with Friends

29 Aug

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 my friends. How was your week?  Isn’t it odd how you can have a fabulous week and then the next week is crap?  It’s like everything that can possibly go wrong all get together and pick one week to enter your life. Sighs. Such as life huh?  It’s hard to keep your stamina and will power when you have that kind of crash.  But I keep smiling. I keep juggling right along. This is life. It has moutains and valleys. Last week was moutains. Hopefully this week will be valleys to a healthy week. 

How did you do my friends?

    How was my week? I cooked up to Wednesday, on Thursday I wasn’t feeling like it, on Friday I warmed chicken soup on a hot day – I had a COLD … *shakes head* and on Saturday I went shopping for a warm meal on Sunday, and ate a tub (smaller tub here) of eggnog-icecream. Followed by strawberry buttermilk cake. It was so hot here, and I did not have the heart to wash up … so I opted for something fast and easy and sugary and cold … And I am NOT ashamed. I do not do that every Saturday, I do not do it once a month. Once a year – or maybe twice … And I enjoyed every bit of it.
    Sunday I cooked a meaty stew in the oven with a little bit of red wine, carrots and bell pepper and mashed potatoes atop. AND I only ate one half and left the rest for today. Since I halved the recipe (at least the meat part of it) it was portion control.

    So today it will be the warm “rest” of yesterday’s Sunday meal.

    Did I move much? No, and it is not recommended either, when you are A) sick and B) it’s so hot that sweat just by looking outside … Well, German houses do not have air condition – most don’t … I was really sweating badly just when I did the washing up (no dish washer here). But then that could be “those certain years” – menopause approaching.

      This is all very true. I wanted to say that this week would be better but trust me, it’s not starting that way off yet. Sighs – tomorrow is another day huh? June

    Last week I found a personal trainer. We start the torture tomorrow . . . . I did better on my weekend eating (I do great during the week and it falls apart on Ice Cream Friday).

    A good life is marked with ebbs and flows, June. Take it all with a grain of salt or a teaspoon of sugar and move forward. Best of luck this week! 😉

      aaww thank you my sweet friend. That’s it in a nutshell – one day at a time for sure! But to say the least, today is not that day – LOL. June

    That must be life what you are talking about, June 😀 We have learned one thing, never ask why, it is like it is, nothing more, nothing less and every day we get new chances. We had a heatwave and the introoders were here for the weekend and they ruined my relaxations. For two days I had to keep an eye open, so now I am catching up on my sleep again. Granny too 😀 Hope you’re on a climb again. Pawkisses for a better week 🙂 ❤

      Oh my friend. I’m so sorry. My downfall was donuts. Sighs. And it’s already been a Monday from hell. It will get better. We will make it turn for the better. I got your back! XOXO – Bacon

    Well I have been doing 5 min exercise program before I start my day with the help of an app I got called The Fabulous. It is about rewiring the brain with small steps. Time will tell! I also gave up reading newspapers and instead, am just reading the headlines. I am informed but I don’t have to read the opinions on the facts. I can do nothing but stay informed and buy a cannon. (just joking)

      That is totally awesome! And headlines do tell you everything you need to know really. I have been trying to walk on the treadmill in the mornings and watch the morning news while I’m doing it. That way I can know about the current events. It’s hard trying to stay fit! LOL – June


This piggy would love to snort with you :)
