Shopping Around the World

Hello sweet friends.  Did you have a lot of fun with Shopping Around the World last month?  We just have a blast seeing everyone’s recipes and pictures.  Since this is the summer and it is so hot here, why don’t we focus this month on foods that you prepare in this type of heat.  Whether it’s a simple salad, a sandwich with chips, a watermelon salad – what do you fix for dinner when it’s just so hot outside to be cooking anything in the kitchen.

Shopping Around the World will be hosted on Monday, July 31, 2017 here in blogville.  Now remember, link back to my blog here so everyone can find your links.  And remember have fun with your recipes.  Can’t wait to see your recipes, pictures and prices in your area.  ❤

Oh and you haven’t already, please fill free to use my Shopping Around the World with Bacon badge for your blog that my brother Phenny fixed for all of us.  Thanks again brother!

Journey with Friends – Week 27

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!

NOTE:  Sunday, July 2, 2017 through Tuesday, July 4, 2017, I took a much needed break from all exercise for my birthday.  It was a blast and I am now ready for 10 more weeks of hard dedicated commitment ❤

Wednesday, July 5, 2017 –  I didn’t think that taking off 4 days would be so bad when getting back to the exercise routine this morning.  I was wrong – LOL.  It doesn’t help that it was 80 degrees with 80% humidity outside as well.  I was purely miserable for sure afterwards.  I just need to get up earlier and hit my treadmill during these hot days.  Of course that would be easy … and we all know that easy is not in my vocabulary apparently – LOL Miles Moved: 2.76

Thursday, July 6, 2017 –  Why do short weeks at work always seem the longest?  It always seems that way here… especially the first week of the month when I’m the busiest.  It’s still so hot here with the humidity high.  I’m trying to walk Diablo the treadmill at home.  It’s not the same as outside but it dos the job, right? Miles Moved: 2.30

Friday, July 7, 2017 –   YAY!  I can see the light of the start of the weekend.  Happy Dance – here I come!  Of course walking will be involved this weekend – gotta get back in the grind!  Wish me luck.  Miles Moved: 1.62

Saturday, July 8, 2017 –  Errands, errands and more errands topped with Houdini going to the spa.  I’m not sure which one of us enjoys it more – me or Houdini – giggles.  It’ll be good to have my baby boy all smelly lovey dovey. Miles Moved: 1.89

Thoughts for the week:  I took a break this past week from all things exercise.  I still watched somewhat the items I ate but ate a few things I have been choosing not to have.  I think this helped me so much in coming back with more of a vengeance to do another 10 weeks of dedication.  Remember we can’t all be good all of the time.  We do have to live ❤

This week walked: 8.57

TOTAL 2017 Miles:  338.01 

 ❤ small goals turn into big accomplishments ❤
