Journal to Healthier Living – Week 9

12 Mar

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 03/04-03/10/2018 – Week 9

“Dear Journal – Stress should be one of those dirty words that we don’t mention.  Stress is ugly and mean.  Stress is butting into my life lately.  The I can’t sleep, I’m running 90 miles per minute in every direction and feel the world is catching up with me kind of stress.  I need to take six classes for work for updating my accounting skills.  Something added in to a 24 hour day that now needs 36 hours just to get everything done.  As of today, five classes down – one more to fit in this week.  The month is getting away from me as well.  I just rolled February at work and now we are halfway through March and I haven’t started March.  I need two of me I think for work.  Mom is going to the pulmonary specialist today to see how bad her COPD is… shaking my head.  Just add to the stress – parents need to live forever.  I’m not ready for anything of that nature.  Enough of my downs – let’s talk ups.  I have maintained my surgery weight – that’s awesome and a positive note.  I am trying to walk when I can in between flare-ups.  Flare-ups is also another bad word but right now I’ve got them beat.  I’m staying on top of them.  And I’m eating better.  Hey – the good with the bad huh?”

This week walked:  6.48

TOTAL 2018 Miles:  75.14

TOTAL 2017 Miles:  541.06

  small goals turn into big accomplishments ❤


 Look my friends – one day last week I used the air fryer to make boneless buffalo chicken nuggets.  They came out amazing!  The hub unit could not get enough of them.  They were seasoned and breaded just right.  See how crispy they look.  And trust me, they tasted just as crispy – had the perfect crunch.  I didn’t take a picture of them but I also fixed tater tots.  They probably could have went a few minutes more but they were awesome!!

    You are having a heck of a stressful time but handling it so very well. Keeping your surgery weight must make you feel you have done well. It’s not easy. I way myself each morning….I sometimes forget but just to see if I have gained water weight. Losing weight seems to be a dream over here.

      Trust me – I so want to lose more weight. It’s just not in the cards right now. I feel like maintaining my surgery weight is the best I can do at the moment – but this shall pass. It will get better. It just seems there is not enough time in the day to get done what I need to do. ❤

    I hope your mom comes back with good news…. I agree with you stress is a dirty word… and the two “ss” at the end make it to something like a snake …

      Yes it does! I’ve had one call from my mom so far. She couldn’t tell me much. She was getting a number from me. Hopefully I will know something soon. ❤

    Oh my kats! I had no idea you’re going through so much stress!

    My human will be purraying for your peeps – especially your mom’s COPD- well, for HER not the COPD- IT appears to be doing just fine, IT HAS TO GO!

    And props to your daddy for taking good care of himself – it’s the best thing he can do for all of you! My human lost 54 lbs over a year ago and still works out at least 4 days a week to keep it off- and she can’t believe she has gone from a size 2x to a regular ladies’ medium / small!

    Tell your daddy he will get there – just don’t give up! It’s a victory worth fighting for! 🐭

    Ps- I’m working on redoing my blog- hang in there and watch for it!

      Will do sweet friend – thanks for your prayers. We are working on things here and getting through them. It’s true what they say. When it rains – it pours!!! ❤

        Yes – but remember that without rain, there would be no flowers! Expect to see flowers budding after your pouring rain!💜

        Well of course! The first steps are usually the hardest – but it will get easier – and you will feel so good about yourself – no one can take that away from you!💜

    The last 2 weeks have been particularly hard for many. Illnesses, deaths, job losses. You are still upright! Hang onto that. And glad for the endorsement of the air frier! I may have to get one.

      I highly recommend the air fryer. I like to show pictures on the paper towel just so people can see that there is no grease. I dumped the nuggets straight from air fryer to the towel. It’s great to actually taste the food and not grease these days.
      And you are right – I’m upright and moving! ❤ Thank goodness for that!

    Maintaining surgery weight is awesome. Hang in there. It’s almost spring. Maybe already warm where you are. Sunshine always makes it better.

      I think you are right. Sunshine – not hotter than hell weather – would be nice right about now – LOL

      AMEN! And neither has my hub apparently. He went all goo-goo over these things. And they were so easy!

    If you figure out how to clone yourself, let us know. I am in a similar boat!

      I know! I’m taking the last of my accounting course today. Maybe that will ease up some stress. I’m so glad that’s over for a while! You hang in there sweet friend ❤


This piggy would love to snort with you :)
