Journey with Friends – Week 31 

07 Aug

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 30, 2017 –  You know Sunday should be a day of rest.  I think from here on out Sunday will be that for me.  I’m not going to wear my i-Watch this day.  I’m going to be nice to me and rest like I should.  This is a pattern I need to add to my schedule every week.  Remember these are changes for a lifetime, not just for here/now.

Monday, July 31, 2017 –  The humidity is so wonderful here today in the south.  Sounds weird huh?  Usually it is like 80-90% and walking outside in the heat will make you go bananas.  Today though, the humidity was only 40%.  With that and the temps being in the mid 80’s, it was like heaven outside.  What an awesome walk and way to start the week.   Miles Moved: 2.50

Tuesday, August 1, 2017 –   Day by day. That’s how to do this. Day by day. Step by step. Not sweating the future. One foot in front of the other.  I’m trying not to stress about the other things in my life. Sometimes that’s easier said than done, right?  Miles Moved: 2.62

Wednesday, August 2, 2017 –  I really hate the fact that once a month women crave things beyond their control. Like sweets. I can look at something sweet and my butt gets wider. My hub on the other hand seems to have no problem with eating because of monthly cravings. Unfair Mother Nature. You are a witch. Miles Moved: 2.02

Thursday, August 3, 2017 –  My walk was great today. I need to keep focusing on walking away the stress and the things I can’t change that are out of my hands.  Miles Moved: 1.75

Friday, August 4, 2017 –  Come to me beautiful weekend and lie to me about how much we are going to get done – LOL. I plan on getting lots of rest and relaxation. Miles Moved: 2.20

Saturday, August 5, 2017 –  Errand day. Don’t you just love looking forward to the weekend only to try to run all of your errands in one day so you can at least have one day to rest?  Now that’s a mouthful huh?   Miles Moved: 0.90

Thoughts for the week:  Sometimes the best medicine to take for stress is not a pillow. Sometimes it requires something physical. I think the more I stress lately, the easier it is to toss the sneakers on and hit some trails for walking. That seems to be the best thing to relief any pent up aggravations of stress. One day at a time my friends. 

This week walked: 11.99

TOTAL 2017 Miles:  379.42

 ❤ small goals turn into big accomplishments ❤

    mother nature can be a snake at this front, I so agree… It sadly rarely work to do all things we have to do on one day… there is murphy, the brother of mother nature who laughs at our smart plans and who comes with his evil law :o(

      YES! Exactly that. Now is the time to get more strict than I ever have and kick it up a notch on working out. Sundays I’m going to live it up though – and do nothing. Perhaps not even move a finger… maybe.

    Great week. Small steps add up.

      Yes they do! One day at a time and one week at a time for sure.

    Book it and stick to it. That’s the only way I can do it. Just like a grocery list. If it’s not on the list, it doesn’t get done.

      Exactly! I like the way you think. I’m going to try this, this week. Anything to make it easier for me. Thanks sweet friend – you always give great tips!! ❤

    I’m glad you finally had a cooler day. Darn Mother Nature though. You have quite the total miles. Keep it up.

      Thanks sweet friend. I’m trying to move. That is the key I think to a lot of things. Definitely gotta keep on moving!

    I have terrible chocolate cravings but have found dark chocolate – like 90% or more – satisfies it wit her only a small amount. The bar can last a week.

      That sounds so wonderful sweet friend. I think at this point, all sugar has to be removed from my way of eating. I’ve got lots of things coming up and really need to be eating cleaner. ❤

    The cooler weather has been wonderful. Fiona has pep in her step, and we are walking further. This week we will be nipping out between thunderstorms and rain. You sre racking up the miles! Journey on.

      Thanks sweet friend!! We are getting the rains and storms here too this week. It’s probably going to be a treadmill week but I gotta get in those miles.
