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!
Sunday, May 28, 2017 – Crappers! It finally happened. I had 27 perfect days on my Apple i-Watch. My rings were full of exercise, move and standing… every single day. Until today. Lowers my head. I failed 2 hours on my stand. Out of the entire month, if this is all I didn’t make, I’m good with it! 🙂 Miles Moved: 1.39
Monday, May 29, 2017 – From walking every day now, I don’t have to look forward to my Monday’s anymore to walk. Funny huh? Now walking every day is an every day event. I never thought I would make that change. It’s awesome for sure. Miles Moved: 1.86
Tuesday, May 30, 2017 – It is getting way too hot outside. Oh my gosh. By the time I get back in, I’m soaking wet these days. That’s definitely one of the downfalls from living here in the south – the humidity and heat will swelter you for sure! Miles Moved: 2.48
Wednesday, May 31, 2017 – It’s always a little hectic in my life the end of the month and at the beginning of the month. I have to close out one month completely to reopen the next at work. It involves lots of numbers – lots of digits – lots of calculations. It keeps me busy and walking helps keep the stress off of my shoulders. Miles Moved: 2.36
Thursday, June 1, 2017 – I have to admit that I’m a little stressed right at this point. I have things going on at work and things going on with our surprise in September. I’m a little flustered at the moment. I have to keep reminding myself to breathe and that everything will fall into place. And you know what. It will. Miles Moved: 2.20
Friday, June 2, 2017 – I ordered some new glasses a couple of weeks ago. They came in this week and I’ve been wearing them a couple of days now. I have to admit – I love these new specs! I *hated* my old glasses. Everything was so dark but with these they are awesome. Everything is so well lit. I absolutely dig them! Miles Moved: 2.28
Saturday, June 3, 2017 – Houdini off to the spa, mom/dad off for some shopping, pick up Houdini and then off to work for a couple of hours. A family that works together, stays together – giggles. Miles Moved: 1.70
Thoughts for the week: As you can see above, all but for 2 hours of stand time on the 28th of May, I had a *perfect* month. Go me!! ❤ Now, I’m shooting for a perfect June. I never thought I would be doing this in my life. Me – exercise = no way. That used to be my calculation – LOL. Nowadays, it’s where can I fit in some walk time – some me time to think about life. It’s definitely been a bonus for sure. And no, the scale hasn’t moved but you know what. I’m good with that. I feel healthier in my choices. I feel healthier in my exercises. I could do more I’m sure. But for now, I’m feeling great!
This week walked: 14.27
TOTAL 2017 Miles: 263.91

JUne, you are doing fabulously. You inspire me to be more active. Excellent.
06/05/2017 at 2:51 pm
aaww – moving is good. Losing weight – I’m not so good at it seems. Although I feel so much better!

Those 2 stand hours stick out like a sore thumb! WHY??? They’re are SOOOO no big deal in the big picture. Your big picture is awesome. Want to try something different with food? Mom has told this to friends a lot and it has worked every time. Make or order whatever you want to eat, cut or divide everything on the plate in half (dessert included), and eat half. Throw out, take home, share, or otherwise waste the other half. Best food plan ever. No unsatisfied cravings. Can be wasteful, but before you know it, you’re finished and accustomed to eating less!
Love and licks,

I like it! Me and the hub split desserts already. I think maybe I’ve had too many lately too – SNORTS. But I like that idea. I’m going to work on that and see how it goes. And those 2 stand hours – ha! I laugh at them. I worked my butt off this month… ok not literally. But just think where I would be if I hadn’t of walked – LOL

Fantastic, June!!! You continue to be an inspiration for me! Keep on walking!!
06/05/2017 at 2:53 pm
aaww thank you sweet friend. You are way too kind!!
06/05/2017 at 4:47 pm
Go June. Everyone is cheering you on. You are probably getting muscles. They are much heavier than fat, so that’s ‘a good thing.’ 😎
06/05/2017 at 4:50 pm
Yes it is! I keep telling myself that – LOL. I do feel better than before and that’s the most important thing, right? ❤
06/05/2017 at 4:52 pm
Yes it is. You’ve inspired my weight to disappear. 😉
06/06/2017 at 12:32 pm
aaww – you are too kind to me sweet friend.
06/05/2017 at 4:48 pm
Oh, I used to work in accounting and know what you’re going through.
06/05/2017 at 4:51 pm
Yes. Then you do know the HELL I go through monthly – Giggles
06/05/2017 at 4:53 pm
Yes, it’s the pressure of the bosses that drove me nuts.
06/06/2017 at 12:33 pm
AMEN! You got that right on the head. Deadlines upon deadlines and everything was due yesterday. It is my life – LOL

you rock and I always applaude while reading your journey-posts. I love your new glasses, they are like made just for you (I always fail with picking the glasses what are made for all peeps but NOT for me)
06/06/2017 at 12:35 pm
Trust me – the old pair I had I wore for two miserable years. I *hated* those glasses and that is putting it mildly. Everything I looked at was so dark and made driving at night almost impossible. That’s why I started wearing my contacts. I bounce back and forth. But with these new babies, I can see the LIGHT – AMEN!

Your doing great. Keep it up. Have a great week.
06/06/2017 at 12:36 pm
Thank you my sweet friend. I really appreciate your support ❤ You have a great day too!

Once moving becomes second nature you end up feeling cheated when you don’t get to do as much as you wanted. Keep up the great work, June. So proud of you!

It really does and it’s so unbelievable! Thanks so much my sweet friend ❤

You might need to notch it up a gear to get the weight loss moving again the body gets used to things so the weight loss stops or slows,sometimes you have to do something different to get things going again but great work again,xx Rachel

Thanks my friend. We are tweaking things this week in hopes to get those stubborn scales moving again. Hopefully this will work.
