Journey with Friends – Weeks 37/38

25 Sep

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, September 10, 2017 –  Lots of errands today but also lots of rest 🙂  There will be time for a lot more walking in the week. Miles Moved: 0.80

Monday, September 11, 2017 –  Thank you Hurricane Irma.  Thanks to you, work was called out today.  Which the only thing good that you brought was today off so I could finally pack for my trip.  Australia here I come.  Miles Moved: 1.25

Tuesday, September 12, 2017 –  Go day!  Airports are busy.  Atlanta Hartsfield Jackson Airport is huge.  First part of the trip, Delta Airlines Atlanta to Los Angeles, California.  I have never moved so fast running through an airport in my entire life.  Oh my goodness.  All of the training I’ve been doing paid off today.  What a run!   Miles Moved: 3.23

Wednesday, September 13, 2017 –  The good thing about today is this – we skipped today in traveling – LOL.  You see Australia is what like 14 hours ahead of us so in flying we kind of skipped over Wednesday right into Thursday.  And really how much walking could you have gotten on the plane anyway, right?  Miles Moved: 0.15

Thursday, September 14, 2017 –  Life in the air… no walking here.  We sat and watched movies and walked a bit to/from the bathroom but that was about it.  My behind was beyond asleep by the time we got to the land down under!  But what an awesome time it will be for the next week. Miles Moved: 0.54

Friday, September 15, 2017 –  Happy Anniversary to us and Happy Birthday to Bacon.  What an awesome way to celebrate our anniversary today but in Australia.  Game plan – lots of walking, sight seeing and a great anniversary dinner tonight with friends.  Miles Moved: 2.69

Saturday, September 16, 2017 –  What an awesome day!!  Let me tell you something, Fozziemom can cook!  Today all of her kids were over and she cooked the bestest meal ever.  It was simply delicious.  Not much moving around except walks around the property looking for kangaroos – LOL.  They know I’m here so they are hiding.    Miles Moved: 1.86

Sunday, September 17, 2017 –  Today we went through some older mining areas in Australia. What a beautiful place but so very sad!  So many people gave up everything to start their lives mining for gold and then lost everything never getting what they came for.  So sad!     Miles Moved: 3.38

Monday, September 18, 2017 –  So many places to explore in such a short time.  How will I ever see everything?  Is it even possible?  LOL – Of course not.  But we are going to try our best for sure. Miles Moved: 3.15

Tuesday, September 19, 2017 –  Slow rest day today.  We are going to need it – lots of things planned for the rest of the week.  Miles Moved: 1.31

Wednesday, September 20, 2017 –  Yarra Valley here we come – LOL.  The Yarra Valley has lots of places to explore – dairies, chocolate shop, and we are staying tonight at Oscars on the Yarra.  What an absolutely beautiful place!  So quiet.  You can just sit and relax.  Close your eyes and just listen to the different birds, relax and destress forgetting everything.  What a beautiful place!  Miles Moved: 3.06

Thursday, September 21, 2017 –  Today’s agenda – Healesville Sanctuary.  What a beautiful sanctuary.  I never thought I would get so up/close personal with so many beautiful Australian animals.  Absolutely wonderful day here.  Miles Moved: 4.55

Friday, September 22, 2017 –   Can you believe that this is the last full day here in Australia.  It has gone by so fast!  Today we visit the Yarra Valley Diary and the Yara Chocolaterie.   I may never fit on the airplane going back to the USA ever again – LOL.   Miles Moved: 3.37

Saturday, September 23, 2017 –  We leave this morning.  What an absolutely amazing time we have spent in Australia.  I will never forget my time here.  Now I prepare for the long plane ride home.  YAY!  Miles Moved: 1.58


Thoughts for the week:  Even though we were traveling in an amazing place, we still got some exercise in.  AND I didn’t do too bad eating.  In fact, who can say they go on vacation to an amazing place like Australia and end up LOSING weight?  In the past couple of weeks, I lost 8 pounds.  Amazing!  Still on plan and working towards my goal.  Thanks my friends ❤


This week walked: 30.92

TOTAL 2017 Miles:  466.14

 ❤ small goals turn into big accomplishments ❤

    14.43 is not bad… and I bet the joy and egg-citement for being down under burnt a lot of calories too ;o)

    Welcome back. Bacon has plenty of tales to tell you while you were away.

    Your paranormal catch-up: DF has wrapped for now, presumably making new episodes. GA has started their new season with an investigation of a ghost town called Golden in Oregon. You’d better watch with the lights on, or maybe during the daytime: spoiler is for a short time, Zac looked possessed … had the eyes and smile of a killer. (Hide under the covers!!!)

      Oh sweet mercy! I can’t wait. Can you believe we didn’t see any paranormal shows the entire time we were gone? What were these peeps thinking? Gotta get my fix. I will check out GA tonight on demand. This should be great. Thanks sweet friend for letting me know!

        Yes they were!! That’s the only downside to traveling. You miss your own television line up with the shows that you watch. I tried watching shows last night and fell asleep. Dang jet lag. But I’m going to catch up. You just wait and see – LOL

      Thanks sweet friends. I’m trying. Today though, I’m just trying to get my body back in this time zone. LOL

       

This piggy would love to snort with you :)
