Journey with Friends

12 Sep

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 was your week?  Last week I tried something different.  Less *thinking* about how I should eat and more thinking about life in general.  I concentrated on me, which is something I normally don’t do.  For instance, I ate good foods when I was hungry, not necessarily because it was breakfast time or lunch time or dinner time.  Does that make sense?  I still ate meals but I broke them down into mini-meals throughout the day.  I always felt full and didn’t crave anything which is a first for me.  And a couple of times something weird happened.  What you ask?  I heard my tummy growling – Oh my!  When was the last time you heard your tummy growl?  This was such a weird feeling especially since I felt like I was eating all day.  But even more amazing – I was down on the scales this week – can I get heck yeah!

So my friends – how was your week?

      Oh brother – I do feel your mom with those attacks. Mine get them from time to time too. It’s like walking on egg shells when they visit – shivers. XOXO – Bacon

    Eating good foods when you’re physically hungry is foolproof. I’m pretty sure that’s how we were designed to work….

      I think you may be right my friend. I wonder why it’s taking me years to figure that out – LOL – June

      I really think we are! It’s a daily fight for sure but I think I’m finally getting in the swing of things for sure – especially the cooking part. June

    That is great! Do you think the food actually tastes better when you’re tummy-grumblin’ hungry? I have a feeling a good percentage of when I eat isn’t because I have a physical need, it’s more in my head. Good for you on practicing mindful eating 🙂

      Oh trust me – it’s hard to ‘listen’ to your body. I’ve been taught 3 meals a day at certain times regardless if your hungry. What can I say – it’s the southern way. So trying to redo this in your head and eat when you need fuel is new for me. BUT, I think I’m finally getting it. June

    I have had a great week too. I have been doing a new exercise which doesn’t feel like an exercise cos its fun. I have been doing ” long baton twirling” LOL! Well done to YOU!

    • Piglove

      Oh my! That sounds like so much fun. Are your batons on fire? LOL – I always love that in talent shows. Too much fun! And you won’t laugh now when I tell you what I’ve been trying to do for exercise – the hula hoop every night for about 15 minutes – can you believe that? June

    Hula hooping is a GREAT idea. It has to be fun or it won’t get done!
    HaHa! No fire (yet) 😀

      Exactly! And this is fun… it’s always fun until someone accidentally gets to close to the edge of the deck and falls off… I’m just sayin – LOL – June
