Journey with Friends – Week 02

15 Jan

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, January 7, 2017 (Day 5) –  There really needs to be a way that your Apple i-Watch tracks when you do housework.  We ended up doing three loads of laundry, folding, making the beds, cleaning the house, etc.  But does any of this track?  No really.  So Apple i-Watch if you listening, work on it.  LOL  Miles Moved:  1.10

Monday, January 8, 2018 (Day 6) –  This weeks goal – finish closing out 2017 at work.  I’ve got to get this finished and done.  After that, I will feel less stress… not no stress but less stress – LOL.  So today might just be a lot of paperwork at the desk.  Miles Moved: 0.80

Tuesday, January 9, 2018 (Day 7) –  Next goal this week – send out certain packages – looks innocent.  I’m so sorry my friends.  I am *SO* behind.  Packages are now mailed out.  More stress gone – LOL Miles Moved: 1.05

Wednesday, January 10, 2018 (Day 8) –  Close to being done with 2017.  Shaking my head.  There are so many numbers to configure.  Someone kill me now – LOL.  I’m determined though.  This year end will be done this week! Miles Moved: 0.93

Thursday, January 11, 2018 (Day 9) –  YAY!  Goal completed.  Goodbye 2017 and hello 2018.  Finally eleven days into 2018 and I can now start thinking about 2018.  Too funny!  So glad that it’s finished now.   Miles Moved: 1.26

Friday, January 12, 2018 (Day 10) – Must open up 2018 and start January statistics.  Notice how when you do the same thing every month that your months just run together and you have no sense of time?  That’s me these days for sure.  This year though, I’m going to try to be on top of these things.  Honest – quit laughing at me – LOL  Miles Moved: 0.83

Saturday, January 13, 2018 (Day 11) –  Football, anipal store run and chili is what today brings.  I’m planning on sleep and relaxation this weekend.  I think I need it after this week – LOL.  Miles Moved: 0.92

Thoughts for the week:   You must repeat after me.  This is not a fast fix.  This is a LIFETIME change.  Baby steps my friends – baby steps

This week walked: 8.09

TOTAL 2018 Miles:  15.71

TOTAL 2017 Miles:  541.06

  small goals turn into big accomplishments ❤

    yes I’m with you the watch should honor our effort while doing houswork… and it should count the curses while cleaning windows and ironing laundry…..

      AMEN to that! And making the bed can be an Olympic sport at times. I’m just sayin’. Giggles

    Mom wears the Apple Watch and it counts every step, whether it’s washing the floor, walking with me, doing laundry, or shopping! That time doesn’t count toward Exercise time, but the steps and distance are counted in on the red circle. You may need to double check at the Apple Store….

    Love and licks,

      It does add the steps. I just think it would be awesome to cut on exercise for housework. Can you imagine how many calories we burn that way?

    Well done June!! And would I laugh at you??? OK I giggled. I am always on the wrong side of the week or miss doing certain things on specific days….such is Life.
    Your quote makes a lot of sense! And ‘baby steps’ work for me…
    I keep hearing Bill Murray as Bob in “What about Bob?” ROFWL! Made my day!
    Love Sherri-Ellen ❤

      YES!! That’s exactly what I was thinking about in baby steps – “What about Bob”. We LOVE that movie here at the Hotel Thompson. It’s one of our favorites for so many reasons ❤

    I think you need to have Jim chase you repeatedly around the bed before the watch will track our movement. 😉

      Grrr. Make that …track YOUR movement. Ugh. Must be because it’s so cold today. 🙂
