Journey with Friends – Week 10

13 Mar

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!

March 5, 2017 –   A day of rest.. until you add in grocery shopping at the market.  How much fun can one person have – LOL?  But the groceries are bought, put up and it’s time to rest in the afternoon.  All to get ready for tomorrow.  Where did the weekend go?  Miles Moved: 1.80

March 6, 2017 –  Didn’t get my walk in this morning.  I went to the post office and stood in line for what seemed like forever!  So I had to postpone my morning walk to the afternoon.  It was a bit warmer outside but the wind was fabulous.  It was almost like the wind you would feel off of the water near the beach.  We have a huge storm brewing in our way sometime tomorrow.  Must get these walks in outside before the rain!  Miles Moved: 2.60

March 7, 2017 –  Got my morning walk in – YES!  For my daily walks during the week, I walk around our building complex at work.  I  have several different paths I have figured out for thirty minutes – that’s how long I walk.  The paths are ‘marked’.  They are just something I have walked in different areas around the building and one complex over.  It depends on how I’m feeling that day as to what “path” I walk. I put my ear buds in, crank the music and walk whichever path I decide.  The different paths keep it new and the music keeps me update.  Whatever works huh?  Miles Moved: 2.57

March 8, 2017 –  I have to share this my friends. Both of my hips were hurting today – like something wicked more than the normal.  So I decided to go for my walk.  A few minutes into my walk, they stopped hurted.  What?!  Tell me that my body has not gotten adjusted to walking and now craves it?  LOL – the thought huh?  Miles Moved: 2.44

March 9, 2017 –  The entire time I walked today I repeated to myself, “I so don’t want to do this.  I so don’t want to do this.”  Isn’t that funny?  But I kept on walking – one foot in front of the other determined that I *was* going to do this.  And here’s a little bit of something for you.  There is a hill where I walk.  It’s not totally bad but it does have some elevation to it.  I walk it 2-4 times per walk.  Now I hate that hill.  There’s no other words for it.  It’s elevated and I get hot and sweaty walking it.  However, as much as I hate it personally, my butt loves it.  Giggles – that’s something to think about huh?  Miles Moved: 2.44

March 10, 2017 –   Now that is too funny.  I was called to a co-workers office in the afternoon.  She advised me to look out her window.  What did I see?  I think I’ve started something.  There were two other people outside who have started walking.  Ha!  Im bringing healthy back.  I don’t think those two people knew each other but isn’t that great?  Miles Moved: 2.28

March 11, 2017 –   Errands.  I really need a weekend and a day of rest. Miles Moved: 1.57

Thoughts for the week:  Persistence.  I think I’ve lived by the word lately.  And also the phrase never give up, never surrender.  The scale is not moving but my clothes are fitting differently.  Even my shoes are fitting differently.  I must not give up.  

This week walked: 15.70

TOTAL 2017 Miles: 128.81

Weight Loss:  -12.00 pounds (88 more to go!)

    such mantras are super helpful, the mama always uses them when she has to do things she hates like the plague… her mantra is very short (longer curses take da breath away) it contains only two words… ;o)

    I always say to myself – I don’t have to like it, I just have to do it – when I am at the gym. It helps get me through horrible workouts!

      Most excellent! I love that saying and trust me – I don’t like the walking and I will never LOVE to exercise but it’s something that must be done.

      Thank you my friend. It’s not as much as an effort now to talk myself into walking. It’s something that I know *has* to be done 5 days a week for 30 minutes.

    Brilliant work! I do think the body craves exercise…we had several good days of three mile walks, but thi system is going to shut us down until Thurdsay or Friday. This morning, Mama let me play in our neighbors back yard instead of walking, so I got my zoomies in. She on the other hand, did not.

      I think you might be right. I walk Monday thru Friday and it’s something that I *know* has to be done. When it doesn’t happen, I crave and miss it. Oops – did I say that out loud? LOL

    Love it that your daily movings are increasing! I know when I don’t get mine in I’m quite crabbish. You get used to them and look forward to them (even when we grouse about it-LOL). Keep up the good work!

      aaww thanks my friend. I do like the 30 minutes – it’s my time to think about things in my life.

    Motor Mommy is really trying to get back in her walking habit too! She tries to walk 30 minutes each day, but we have a major storm heading our way, so she may not get to walk much this week. She also listens to music when she walks: fast-paced oldies music. Good for you; I think I’ll give “Dad” a hint that Mommy needs a way to measure her distance walked.
    Love, Sundae

      Oh I think your dad should get your mom an i-Watch. I LOVE mine and wear it every day. It keeps up with everything. And music is key. I have a workout playlist that has 14 really upbeat songs on it. It does keep me going.

        Oh most definitely – we would be able to keep each other on base. I love knowing how much walking I do at work. When I work on finance matters, I always said those days I did more walking and getting up/down. And I was right! All of that adds up for sure!


This piggy would love to snort with you :)
