Journal to Healthier Living – Week 13

09 Apr

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 04/01-04/07/2018 – Week 13

“Dear Journal – Sometimes when you let some things go, everything falls into place.  Today is a new day to a new beginning.  My recuperation from surgery has lasted a bit longer than I expected.  I didn’t think I was going to jump back into things right off but I also didn’t think it was going to take me nearly five months to get there either.  But it’s time.  Baby steps – even if it is an mile a week.  It’s time to start pushing myself for more of an achievement.  If my sister can run 26 miles in October, I can walk 10-12 miles a week.  No excuses.”


This week walked: 5.98

TOTAL 2018 Miles:  98.02

TOTAL 2017 Miles:  541.06

  small goals turn into big accomplishments ❤

Another one with the air fryer last week.  The hub unit loves corn dogs and requested them in the air fryer.  This took a day ahead to prepare.  I’m sure I could have done it in one day but I wanted the corn dogs to be a little frozen… let me start at the beginning.  One night after dinner, I fixed corn dog batter and battered my hot dogs.  I put them in a container into the freezer.  I want them to be a little ‘hardened’ so as to not get the batter slushed all around in the air fryer.  Makes sense, right?  The next night when we were going to have the corn dogs, I took them straight from the freezer and popped them into the air fryer with tater tots (my hubs favorite).  I cooked the both of them at the same time at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.  They came out perfect!  The hub enjoyed them immensely and I didn’t feel so guilty about it because they were not full of grease.  So another hit at the Hotel Thompson!

    That Air Fryer is pretty darn impressive June!!!
    An major surgery takes a l-o-n-g time…..unfortunately!
    When I had Partial Hysterectomy (Uterine & Cervical Cancers) it took me 6 months to be able to be anywhere close to normal. And then it took another 4 months to get closer to normal. Mind you I had Cancer to bounce back from….I was only 29 at the time; can’t imagine going thru any major surgery at my age now….. (or G-D forbid more Cancer….)
    Just keep doing what you are doing. Little by little you will ‘get there’…to ‘normal’…I’m sure of it June!
