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!
January 22, 2017 – The day of rest. Today calls for cleaning, laundry and FOOTBALL. Too bad the i-Watch doesn’t keep up with the day-to-day activities that we do. You know what I mean. For example: shaving aerobics. It has to account for something twisting yourself like a pretzel to shave your legs. Or scrubbing the toilet/shower/tub areas. All of that moving around, grunting and groaning. What about cleaning the litter box? Or making a king size bed by yourself. LOL – some things just don’t get counted. Miles Moved: 0.70
January 23, 2017– Back to work – back to grind of things. I think I like taking a walk during my lunch ‘break’. It gives me energy to survive the rest of the afternoon. I’m kind of ticked though because my walk didn’t make my exercise circle – it did make my activity circle though. It’s weird. I’ll look at it again tomorrow to see what’s going on. Miles Moved: 2.08
January 24, 2017 – Still feeling good and motivated which is awesome. I can’t remember ever changing my eating habits and feeling this good. Totally weird for sure. I like to take my walk between 11-11:30am at work. This is before people start going to lunch so there’s still a lot of people in their offices just in case I need someone. Funny how we think about that huh? But I’m a safety girl – LOL. And again, my walk didn’t make my exercise circle on my i-Watch. Stomping my southern feet 😦 I’ll give it one more shot tomorrow to see what I’m doing wrong. Miles Moved: 1.79
January 25, 2017 – Still walking the parking lot. I feel good afterwards. Do I want to before hand – absolutely NOT! But in the end, I know it’s good for me. And it’s only been since the beginning of January, but I feel my body changing in good ways – my legs are getting stronger – my pain levels are not so high lately. That’s totally awesome. Miles Moved: 2.27
January 26, 2017 – I almost have a perfect week in my activity rings. As long as I’m pushing it and my activity ring circles, I feel great about myself. From going completely sedentary to moving, it feels good. Yep, I can’t believe I said that. 🙂 Miles Moved: 2.05
January 27, 2017 – Friday! Can I get a YES! Of course, Friday wouldn’t be Friday without something happening, right? I don’t walk on Friday’s at work because I want to walk on Saturday with the hub unit. We shall see how this works for sure. Miles Moved: 1.43
January 28, 2017 – Well, one of the appliances decided to quit working at the house (we will post about that later). Stress is a wonderful thing – ha! Lot’s of waiting today for the delivery man… I mean lots of waiting. Miles Moved: 1.47
Thought of the week: I think I finally found my groove. I walk at work Monday thru Thursday. Then I pick up one day on the weekend to walk with the hub unit. It’s taking me the entire month of January but I think I have a system now – yay! My next weigh in is 02/01/2017. Hopefully there will be a good change going south on the scales. I hope so… I really hope so 🙂
This week walked: 11.79
