Journey with Friends – Week 30 

31 Jul

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, July 23, 2017 –  Didn’t do too much today.  Next week is going to be a busy week.  Lots of doctor appointments.  So excited.  Really, stop me now.  LOL – really that was sarcasm.   Miles Moved: 1.24

Monday, July 24, 2017 –  The stress levels are strong this week.  Did several small walks throughout the day to try to keep my stress levels down.  Went and saw the vampires at the doctor’s office and had my bloodwork done.  Don’t you just love a tech who can get the vein on the first shot?  I know I do!  Mine this morning was awesome.  She didn’t play games and I was in and out within 30 minutes.   Miles Moved: 2.66

Tuesday, July 25, 2017 –  Walking is definitely my friend this week.  This stress is causing my neck to hurt so badly.  I will not let the added stress slow me down.  Nope.  I will not!   Miles Moved: 2.48

Wednesday, July 26, 2017 –  So my sister stated today that she wants to do a marathon run/walk in every state by the time she is 50.  OMG – she is so good!  I think she needs to go for it.  Heck, who knows I might actually do one with her in this neck of the woods.  Are you up now from passing out on the floor from me saying that?  It could happen.  One never knows what I will do.  My sister has influencing me in so many ways with this new lifestyle.  I really look to her for guidance and encouragement.  I think everyone should have a sister like her in your life ❤  Miles Moved: 2.49

Thursday, July 27, 2017 –  I went in for some tests today at the doctor’s office.  It was planned, something in/out kind of thing.  My life is never that simple – LOL.  One ‘simple’ thing led to another test and then to a meeting face to face with a radiologist doctor.  Rolls eyes.  I was so glad to be back at work and who says that, right?  Miles Moved: 2.61

Friday, July 28, 2017 –   Yes!!  Thank goodness for Fridays.  If ever a weekend was desired, it was this weekend. I’m planning on rest, relaxation and snuggled. Bring it!  Miles Moved: 2.26

Saturday, July 29, 2017 –   Come at me Saturday. I’m so ready. Bring on the snuggles. Miles Moved: 0.69

Thoughts for the week:  Baby steps and remember to breathe.  Those have definitely been my words to live by this week.  When times get tough and stressful, take a walk.  I’m trying my best to walk away that old ugly Mr. Stress.  I don’t think giving up is even in my vocabulary anymore – which is an awesome thing! As you can tell from this week, I’ve had lots of stress and doctor appointments.  I really don’t want to elaborate at this point in any details except to say pray for me.  Life goes on.  Thanks my friends.

This week walked: 14.43

TOTAL 2017 Miles:  367.43

 ❤ small goals turn into big accomplishments ❤

    guess what? that was my thought too… maybe once you will start as a team with your sister… nothing is impossible… eggs-cept my wild dream to start at paris marathon… my first training day ended weird… puked in the flower box at the car repair point and called mark to pick me up… after one mile or so… think it was a very short marathon… and for me a torturathon ;O)))

      Well I can’t say that it will happen. I mean running – me?! Surely that is some sick horror movie in the making. The only way I could possibly run would be if a clown was chasing me…. gulps

    You really moved a lot of miles. I hear you about the phlebotomist hitting the vein the first time. Have a great week.

    Doctor visits and tests and blood stealing are always stressful. When simple tests lead to more, it’s MORE stressful. Mom and I will say prayers and think happy thoughts for you. We know without a doubt that you are fine.

    Love and licks,

      I sent your mom a message on Facebook. If she didn’t get it, email me okay. Smooches

    Hugs to you! We must be blood sisters! I love a vampire who can get blood on the first try (“they say” my veins roll!). They are worth their weight in gold. I found a place with a good one and I go there for all my tests. I never let my pc doc’s nurse do it. She doesn’t do it enough to be good with weird veins. You deserved snuggles this weekend. I know the “kids” were looking forward to it too.

      YES we probably are blood sisters! I’ve been way too many times and been poked relentless. I’ve learned over the years – one shot and you are out.

    Mommy really, really dislikes going to the doctor. They always say, “Your blood pressure’s a little high.” Well no joke. She’s had to wait way too long in a waiting room (really, that name itself is just an admission that they’re not going to be on time) and now she’s having to be poked and prodded. No fun! Thinking of you and wishing you minimum wait times, limited poking and prodding, and an abundance of good news. ❤
