Journey with Friends – Week 33

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, August 13, 2017 –  Today we rested – LOL.  We all bundled up on the sofa and watched movies – some funny, some serious, some cartoons.  It was a great day of just being together.  Miles Moved: 0.84

Monday, August 14, 2017 –   I know some of you are following me on Facebook.  Some have questioned if the great surprise we have for September is what is currently going on with my other blog.  The answer is no 🙂  The other blog is entirely to itself and I’m working on that for me.  The great surprise is still coming in September – next month.  It’s good too.  Huge you might say.  We are all excited at the Hotel Thompson.  The final countdown is getting close.  Plans are being made.  Lists are being taken care of and then looked again several times for completion.  Trust me.  We will keep you informed.  Miles Moved: 2.78

Tuesday, August 15, 2017 –   The eclipse is happening Monday close here to our area.  I can’t believe how many visitors we are getting around here.  If you are in the path, are you getting visitors so soon?  I guess everyone wants to make sure they get the best spot.  Miles Moved: 2.39

Wednesday, August 16, 2017 –   At this point in Summer,  I can not walk outside.  Today the humidity was 90% and the temperature was close to it.  Talk about walking in a pile of sweat.  I’m sticking with walking inside (I’m sure work loves my paths I’ve created in the building – LOL) and using my treadmill.  It’s the only way I can exercise without being a pile of water afterwards.  Miles Moved: 2.30

Thursday, August 17, 2017 –   I can tell by the end of the week, I’m getting wiped out.  I guess that’s a good sign somewhat.  Not wiped out per say as in drained.  I mean wiped out in a good way from exercising.  By the time the weekend nears, I’m ready for a recharge of some sorts.  Miles Moved: 1.95

Friday, August 18, 2017 –   Finally Friday!!  I have worked hard all week because tomorrow I plan on having a planned small cheat.  There is something that me and Jim have been looking forward to all week that is a one time thing.  I will not miss a memory.  This is the great thing about living healthier vs trying to drop a lot of weight at once.  I’m living.  We can’t be ‘perfect’ every day.  And I have to still think of my blog too, right?  Travels in the South needs material – LOL  Miles Moved: 1.46

Saturday, August 19, 2017 –  Let me add that the planned cheat was happy and awesome.  Look for pictures this weekend on Travels in the South.  And I didn’t overindulge.  I wasn’t feeling up to par today.  Stupid allergies had me going something fierce this morning.  Miles Moved: 0.28

Thoughts for the week:   Friends, I know you have been wondering why all of the doctor visits lately, the waiting game for the return phone calls, etc.  I do have another blog that I’m keeping on the side about that journey.  If you would live to follow that blog and find out what is going on, you can check it out at  That blog is strictly about my new journey.  I will not be posting everyday on it and at times it might be a little graphic.  Thanks my friends for all of your support ❤

This week walked: 12.00

TOTAL 2017 Miles:  402.06

 ❤ small goals turn into big accomplishments ❤
