Journal of Healthier Living – Weeks 3 and 4

Welcome my friends.  I’m tweaking my weekly journey with my healthier living.  It’s a step in the right direction for sure.  I hope you come along for the ride.  Instead of day-to-day comments, I’m going to post something from my personal journal to share.  Hope you enjoy.  Remember all of us go down this path and we are all in it together ❤

 


Week of 01/21-01/27/2018 – Week 3 (MILES MOVED: 5.96)

“Dear Journal – Slow and easy wins the race.  Recuperation from my surgery is going well; however, my rheumatoid arthritis is deciding to flare up.  I went back on a different RA medicine.  It so hates me and is not agreeing with my body.  I will give it another week to settle.  If it doesn’t, then we will go to plan B… whatever that might be.  I want to get back into my exercising.  It’s true what they say.  Trying to get back into a plan is the hardest thing in the world.  I was really burning some miles and then I had to stop because of surgery.  It’s hard finding my way back.  But I will!  I am determined if not anything else.  At least my food choices have been on key – that’s definitely a plus.  Wouldn’t it be great if we could all eat anything we wanted with no consequences?  I’m not as young as I was once – LOL.”

Week of 01/28-02/03/2018 – Week 4 (MILES MOVED: 5.62)

“Dear Journal – This week started slow.  I had some type of virus going around the office.  I’m so thankful that we share everything – not!  I was home Monday/Tuesday which also led me to the point of coming off of my RA medicine.  It so was not agreeing with my body.  I’ve been speaking with my doctor back/forth about it and we both decided to stop it.  For the past three months, I worked on a pain management plan.  I think I’m going to stay on that for a while.  I need my body to catch up and even out.  It’s been hard these past three months going through so many physical changes.  I’m happy with the surgery.  I just need things to chill out now with everything else.  Can you believe it’s been almost three months since surgery?  Sometimes it just seems like yesterday.  I so should have done this years ago!  I feel like a new person in that aspect.”

 

Oh and by the way, I bought an air fryer for the house.  I’m going to be using it in the future and hopefully sharing with you some awesome recipes.  Do you have one?  If so, share some recipes.  An air fryer circulates heat  at a high speed around the items that you are cooking.  This produces a crispy top layer to what you are cooking.  It doesn’t use oil like you would if you fried foods.  And being in the south, we know our fried foods.  Using an air fryer will hopefully help our waistlines in cooking healthier and eating more at home.  I will keep you updated on what foods we cook.

National Thank a Mailman Day

Journalist Rocky the Squirrel here –

keeping his paws on the nuts of the world –

Friends, yesterday February 4th was National Thank a Mailman Day.  But the mailman doesn’t run on Sundays.  So we need to make sure we acknowledge them today.  Do you hear that pups? That means don’t chase the mailman on this date! Instead of chasing the mailman, today gives you a chance to say thank you. They deliver the mail six days a week regardless of the weather either by postal truck and walking routes. Do you remember the old Pony Express motto? “Neither rain, nor snow, nor death of the night, can keep us from our duty!” This motto is believed to be taken in part from a motto dating back to ancient times! You also hear it this way some times, “Through rain or snow, or sleet or hail, we’ll carry the mail. We will not fail.”

So pets near and far away, go sit by the mailbox today. Maybe bring a bone and give it to the mailman. Tell him thank you.
