Journal to Healthier Living – Week 10

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 03/11-03/17/2018 – Week 10

“Dear Journal – Do you ever feel like time is slipping away.  You look in the mirror one day and you love your curly hair and your long legs.  You look again and your hair is thinning and those once long giraffe legs now resemble a short buffalo?  LOL – okay nothing that drastic but you get the meaning.  Life is short.  We talked about celebrities aging today… and then realized that we were also aging.  We still act like kids young at heart while our bodies get older every day.  What once we thought would never happen to us when our grandparents couldn’t get up as fast or walk as far has now hit us… no full force yet but knocking on the door for short visits.  We say it all of the time – life is short.  So what do we do?  Live it up every.single.day as if it is the last.  Because you never know – tomorrow is not a given 🙂 ” 


This week walked: 5.17

TOTAL 2018 Miles:  80.31

TOTAL 2017 Miles:  541.06

  small goals turn into big accomplishments ❤


 

 

This week the hub unit was craving homemade fried shrimp and his beloved tater tots.  I use to limit these meals because of the deep frying and I still do.  But, I wanted to see what the air fryer could do for my hub’s favorite meal.  I bought fresh shrimp, deveined them and slightly pounded them giving them a ‘flat’ appearance.  I then battered the shrimp with a light coating of egg mixture and seasoned flour.  I placed them in the air fryer for 20 minutes at 400 degrees.  Have way, I turned them and added the tater tots.  They came out beautifully!  Lightly tanned on the outside, crunchy and so juicy on the inside.

Your Shoes Can Tell Your Age?!

No – not by what they are looking like silly.  I’m talking about math.  Yep, your shoes can tell your age with math.  Don’t believe me, do you?  Okay, I see that I’m going to have to prove this to you.  Stay with me on these calculations and I will show you.

Math is fun my friends – don’t run out because I said the ugly four letter “m” word.  Math is fun – mom plays with numbers everyday.  You’re going to love this.

Get a piece of paper and a pencil handy.

1.  Take your shoe size (no half sizes – round up).  Mom wears 9.5 so I’m going size 10 here.

2.  Multiply the shoe size by 5.  In mom’s situation, it would be 10X5 = 50

3.  Add 50.  In mom’s situation, it would be 50+50 = 100

4.  Multiply by 20.  In mom’s siutation, it would be 100X20 = 2000

5.  Add 1017.  In mom’s situation, it would be 2000+1017 = 3017

6.  Subtract the year you were born.  3017 – 1969 = 1,048

The first 2 numbers is your shoe size, the last two numbers is your age

It’s SHOE magic – see, your shoes can tell your age!

Oh friends, here’s another Texts from Bacon that you can’t miss out on.  The things that are communicated here at the Hotel Thompson never stop.  It’s like living in a circus sometimes!  Hope you enjoy.  My texts are in blue and mom’s are in white.  Have a great weekend – I can almost see the light from here on the couch!

Stool Sample

IMG_0605.JPG

Shakes piggy head.

I think dear daddy may be in trouble. He went to the doctor for his yearly check up and the doctor told him he was at “that age”. What age she specifically said I’m not sure. I just know that daddy was suppose to bring her a stool sample for a test. I told him that I could help him out but he said he had this.

Personally I’m not a doctor or anything resembling one but I don’t think she meant this kind of stool sample.

Do you my friends?

Houdini Update

IMG_0914.JPGGreetings my sweet friends and Happy Friday!!  Just thought I would give you an update on Little Man Houdini.  He is now 16 weeks old.  Time has flown by, hasn’t it?  He’s gotten just a little bit bigger.  He’s at a whopping 3.10 pounds now.  Mommy better quit feeding him or he’s going to turn into a cow – snorts.

This picture is of him last night before bed time.  He wanted to play with mommy so very bad but he was so tired.  I have to throw a shout out to my brother Easy across the pond.  Easy actually sent me this elephant toy and yes I’m being a great big brother and letting the little guy play with it.  See, I’m sharing 🙂

And we are proud to stay that my mommy has officially turned into “one of those moms”.  Snorts – she did this to me when I was a baby.  You are probably asking what did the silly woman do?  Mom woke up at 5AM this morning and then proceeded to wake up daddy to ask him if he had gotten up at all with Houdini.  You see the little tyke usually wakes up at least once, usually twice, for a potty break.  Daddy said no.  Mommy went stir crazy and of course had to wake up Houdini just to make sure he was okay.  He was fine – he was sleeping!  So he *almost* slept the entire night.  Way to go little man!

Another Month Down

Well tomorrow I’m officially 5 months old. Mom weighed me tonight. Are you ready for this? I weigh a whopping 24 pounds – I’m such a pig! Snort snort!

Most of the weight is in my tummy. With that being said, I haven’t gotten much bigger. I’m still the same height. I still have short legs. And I’m still cute – wink.
