Journey with Friends – Week 20

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, May 14, 2017 –  The funny thing about today being Mother’s Day.  I took my mom out yesterday for lunch and shopping.  You know because it would be less busy and then today I would have time for myself to have me time relaxing.  Funny how plans don’t work out that way.  I took my mom out again today for lunch with more exciting shopping.  More shopping meant more walking/exercising.  Awesome huh?  Of course many miles later and many dollars spent, I’m exhausted with what feels like no rest this weekend ūüė¶  Miles Moved: 2.03

Monday, May 15, 2017 –   Coming to work today felt like a vacation after the olympic weekend I had – LOL.  Don’t get me wrong.  I enjoyed my time with my mom and shopping, which I hate to do but enjoyed with mom.  But today, I need to really hit some pavement.  Miles Moved: 2.93

Tuesday, May 16, 2017 –  Today was definitely a challenge to get my time/rings covered on my i-Watch.  I was working by myself today which meant I had to take time where I could, no long walks outside.  That’s the great thing I love about my i-Watch.  It doesn’t matter how much time you have here/there.  It all adds up at the end of the day.  It really motivates me which is what I need.  Go Apple i-Watch!  Miles Moved: 2.49

Wednesday, May 17, 2017 –   I can tell my body is shifting again.  I feel like I’m standing taller/more straight.  My tummy doesn’t feel like it jets out as much and my boobs don’t feel like they have separate zip codes these days.  Little things that all add up and make you smile and believe that you are walking in the right step.  I’ve also changed our diet this week at night.  I’m trying to keep it fresh but yet on this way of eating plan with the hub unit.  So far, he hasn’t complained about what I’m fixing.  That in itself is a bonus cause the guy loves his food – ūüôā  Miles Moved: 2.67

Thursday, May 18, 2017 –  Okay Mother Nature I get it.  It’s the middle of May and almost the beginning of Sweaty Summer as I like to call it.  But honestly we do have a couple of more weeks left before the dreaded Sweaty Summer so please play nice and keep it somewhat cool outside for my walks.  Today it was H.O.T.  We are talking I came back in from my walk in a puddle of sweat.  This is not good trying to work the rest of the day.  I know I have a secluded office but trust me no one wants to smell that – really.  Tomorrow I must rethink my plan of action.  Walking around 10:30-11:00AM is not going to work with Sweaty Summer.  Miles Moved: 2.41

Friday, May 19, 2017 –   Take that Mother Nature!  I walked at 9:00 AM while the birds were still chirping and peeps were still thinking about coming in to work.  I got to work early and hit the pavement.  Still hot but manageable hot.  I must remember this for future walks during this time of the year.  Heck, if all fails I can still do the path I’ve created in my office building.  I’m sure everyone will love to see me walking through the halls – LOL  Miles Moved: 2.74

Saturday, May 20, 2017 –  Today completes 3  full weeks of having perfect circles. I’m exhausted.  LOL – I can honestly say that. I need a rest. Hopefully tomorrow.  Miles Moved: 2.13


Thoughts for the week:  Finally after 20 weeks, I really feel big changes in my body.  So much so that I finally bought – gulps – a new swimsuit.  Can you believe that?  Now it didn’t hurt that the swimsuit had Mickey Mouse (my idol) all over it – LOL.  But I can’t wait to get it.  The swimsuit is unlike anything I’ve had before.  But you know what?  I feel more confidence with my body.  If you look at the beaches these days, there are all types of shapes wearing swimsuits.  Confidence in oneself is key to this.  I’m finally at a point in my life that I don’t give a damn what others think of *my* body.  It is *my* body and I know where I’ve come and how far it was.  So this week we shall all remember – Do not judge others.  They are carrying enough stress judging themselves!  


This week walked: 17.40

TOTAL 2017 Miles:  233.95

Journey with Friends – Week 19

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 Рall with one single goal in mind Рto live better.  Welcome to our journey to share our goals and our accomplishments and our disappointments and frustrations.

Together we can do this!


Sunday, May 7, 2017 – ¬†The good thing about challenging myself to a perfect month is committing to exercise every day for at least 30 minutes. ¬†Once upon a time, it sounded so foreign to me to want to do this. ¬†These days, it’s normal talk. ¬†Funny how things change like that. ¬†Miles Moved: 1.47

Monday, May 8, 2017 – ¬†The best things about Monday is the start of a new week. ¬†Normally coming off of a weekend, I am so ready to walk some stress off. ¬†But with walking on the weekends now, it’s the fact that I *need* to really walk in a workout. ¬†Your life changes so quickly it seems. ¬†Just to think I use to be a couch potato that sat at my desk all day and on the sofa at night watching television. ¬†What have I become? Miles Moved: 3.20

Tuesday, May 9, 2017 – ¬†The days are getting hotter here. ¬†Soon I’m going to have to start changing clothes before I hit the streets during my lunch break. ¬†But it does seem like I’m seeing more and more people outside now as I walk. ¬†There was more people watching me over the winter months than I knew. ¬†People are watching me and that makes me feel safe in my walks through the neighborhood and building complex. ¬†You just never know who is watching. ¬†Miles Moved: 3.06

Wednesday, May 10, 2017 – ¬†I’m extremely busy this time of the month with preparing some monthly statistics. ¬†My mind is mush. ¬†So it really does feel to get away from my desk for a short period of time and walk off some steam. ¬†Too bad my mind doesn’t shut down while I’m walking. ¬†How can I walk and still configure numbers in my mind? ¬†Giggles – nerd never shuts down. ¬†Miles Moved: 2.26

Thursday, May 11, 2017 – ¬† Okay, I think I have this new way of living down pact with exercising and moving. ¬†Next week, new food choices will be put in effect. ¬†Of course my hub will act like I’m starving him to death – LOL. ¬†Must shop this weekend for all foods and restock the house with healthy choices. ¬†Miles Moved: 2.64

Friday, May 12, 2017 – ¬†I’m exhausted today. ¬†I feel wiped out like I’m trying to come down with a summer cold. ¬†Really Mother Nature? ¬†Please don’t do this to me okay. ¬†I really don’t have the time. ¬† Miles Moved: 2.40

Saturday, May 13, 2017 – ¬†What happened to the old me and where did she go? ¬†This was a day that did not end and I’ll tell you a secret. ¬†I loved every minute of it. ¬†I never would say that with the old me. ¬†We took my mom out today for Mother’s Day and afterwards went shopping to a couple of places. ¬†Then I went home and cleaned out my closet and dresser taking some items to Goodwill. ¬†Then I swept and mopped the entire house. ¬†Did a load of laundry and folded. ¬†Cleaned out the anipal rooms. ¬†What was I thinking getting all of this done in one day? ¬†So weird having all of this energy. ¬† Miles Moved: 2.85

 


Thoughts for the week: ¬†Another great week behind me to full rings every days on my Apple i-Watch. ¬†Go me! ¬†When I first started this challenge, I though it would be difficult. ¬†Yet I find myself having more and more energy instead. ¬†So very weird – I’ll take it anyday! ¬†My sister said that once you get on a row, you don’t want to stop. ¬†I so see what she is talking about! ¬†Let’s go for another perfect week my friends!¬†


This week walked: 17.88

TOTAL 2017 Miles:  216.55

Journey with Friends – Week 18

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 Рall with one single goal in mind Рto live better.  Welcome to our journey to share our goals and our accomplishments and our disappointments and frustrations.

Together we can do this!


Sunday, April 30, 2017 – So much for taking it easy on Sundays as my day of rest – LOL. ¬†Me and the hub unit decided to take my mom to lunch and then shopping afterwards. Me and my mom walked so much shopping for awesome deals. ¬†You know how you are looking for one thing and then it snowballs into another thing and then another thing. ¬†Rolls eyes – that’s how it went today. ¬†But I think I got a few things for the Hotel Thompson that I have been looking for. ¬†And when we finally settled back at the Hotel Thompson, my mom told me that the Hotel Thompson finally felt “homey” after the renovation from a couple of years ago. It just takes a while to get everything just right, you know. ¬†Miles Moved: 2.61

Monday, May 1, 2017 – ¬†It’s so good to be back to work some weeks just so you can exercise more and move more. ¬†I took a really good walk during my lunch break AND when I got home later this afternoon I took another walk on the treadmill. ¬†I just felt like I had a lot of excess energy to get out of my system. ¬†It felt great moving. ¬†Miles Moved: 3.02

Tuesday, May 2, 2017 – Today marks 4 weeks since the car accident. ¬†The doctor told me it would take 6-8 weeks to recovery. ¬†I feel like I’m almost getting there. ¬†I’m still having the occasional swelling in my sternum which prevents me from bending over. ¬†But other than that, my body seems to be adjusting and getting better. ¬† Miles Moved: 3.40

Wednesday, May 3, 2017 – ¬†I was hurting a bit yesterday but today it’s like I have my second wind. ¬†I’ve been sleeping like the pits the past couple of nights. ¬†But today while walking, I kicked it up a notch and made some good timing. ¬†It feels so good to move. ¬†I just hate that this weather is getting so hot. ¬†That I can’t take – LOL. ¬†AND, I need to get my eating back to the way it was. ¬†I’ve let that go a little for the past couple of weeks but now it’s time to eat clean. ¬†I haven’t done that bad this week but I know there is always room for improvement. ¬†Miles Moved: 3.25

Thursday, May 4, 2017 – ¬† ¬†Mother Nature hates me. ¬†LOL – Really she does. ¬†I love walking the path I made for myself around my building complex at work. ¬†But today, Mother Nature said, “Nope. ¬†Not going to happen.” ¬†It has been raining likes cats and dogs. ¬†And usually I would grab my umbrella and get at it – if there is no thunder or lightening. ¬†Well there was none today so I did just that. ¬†Too bad the wind didn’t want to play. ¬†It blew my umbrella inside out! ¬†So, I went to plan B which is making the inside of my office my personal treadmill. ¬†It’s not like the good walk outside but it does in a pinch – and in air conditioning! Miles Moved: 2.50

Friday, May 5, 2017 – ¬† Mother Nature Part 2: ¬†the rain continues. ¬†Sometimes it’s so hard that I’m thinking of building a boat. ¬†But it’s okay. ¬†I continued making treads in the carpet and warehouse here at the office. ¬†I even had a co-worker walk with me for a short time. ¬†I got this! ¬†Miles Moved: 2.51

Saturday, May 6, 2017 – ¬†It’s like it never rained here at all in these parts. ¬†Got up this morning and everything was beautiful, the birds were singing and Mr. Rooster next door was doing his cackling. ¬†But at last, I got up and out and me and the hub walked the stadium down the street from us. ¬†Then we did bunches of errands moving around, lifting groceries, etc. ¬†It really felt great after being holed up the past two days. ¬†Miles Moved: 2.00


Thoughts for the week: ¬†So in texting with my sister over the weekend, she had a perfect month for April. ¬†What exactly does that mean? ¬†It means that she completed all three circles daily on her i-Watch. ¬†That’s a feat in itself. ¬†No down days. She also logged 100 miles in April. ¬†You know this means war, right? ¬†LOL – what’s a little challenge between sisters. ¬†She threw the gauntlet and I caught it firmly. ¬†That’s the way we have always been together. ¬†It’s awesome. ¬†She keeps me in line and May I will rock! ¬†Here is my first week in May – a perfect week! ¬†I so got this Tina – you better watch out for my dust!


This week walked: 19.29

TOTAL 2017 Miles:  198.67

Journey with Friends РWeek 17 

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, April 23, 2017 -Where does the weekend go?  It seems these days if you sneeze, the weekend is gone. Some days it doesn’t seem like The Weeknd is enough time to rest for sure.  Miles Moved: 1.33

Monday, April 24, 2017 –   It seems these days, Monday is my favorite day of the week. Why?  Because coming off of the weekend, I really crave a great walk.  It just seems to start my week in the right direction. Miles Moved: 2.57

Tuesday, April 25, 2017 –  Today marks three weeks since my car accident. For the most part, I feel almost normal. But there are times like today that I can move a certain way and the pain is so intense in my neck and sternum. The doctor said it was going to take 4-8 weeks and days like today feel like it will never go away. Miles Moved: 2.47

Wednesday, April 26, 2017 –   Today I wasn’t able to exercise my normal way.   Today was finally the day to get my car to the repair shop to fix it from the accident.  The accident really didn’t do much damage to my Jeep but the bumper and passenger tail light had to be repaired. It’s nice to have these things finally fixed.  So many obstacles I’ve had to jump through from this accident when I was minding my own business. I keep reminding myself that it could have been so much worse than what it was. I’m very thankful that it was minor and hopefully soon will be far behind me. Miles Moved: 2.43

Thursday, April 27, 2017 –  I really needed my walk today to help out with stress. Do you know how you turn your back to a wave in the ocean and the waves will take you down? That’s how I feel at times at work when I take a day off. ūü§£ Thank goodness I can walk some of that stress off and then come back to work ready to hit the work some more.  Miles Moved: 3.16

Friday, April 28, 2017 –  I have so much work to get done today, I didn’t walk. Plus I feel like I’m coming down with something. The hub unit has something earlier this week and I do believe he shared it with me. Bless his little heart. Miles Moved: 1.43

Saturday, April 29, 2017 –  I don’t have to pull many weekends but today I decided to work to attempt to get caught up to the point that I don’t feel so stressed. I think I succeeded. After work, I took Jim to get pizza – maybe not the best choice for this way of eating but it was delicious. And the pizza joint had a singer. Great entertainment for sure tonight. I think we both needed a little fun. Miles Moved: 1.47


Thoughts for the week:  Life is not a race. Life has its ups and downs – mountains and valleys as I like to refer them. Just because I have a down day, it doesn’t mean that I’ve failed at this way of eating. I’ve come a long way in retraining myself in not beating myself up – which is hard. The old me would think I’ve messed up so I’ll start again Monday. These days, I might have not eaten as clean as I liked so I rethink the rest of my meals that day.  That’s the entire point – never give up. Keep on swimming or walking in my case ūüėÄ


This week walked: 14.86

TOTAL 2017 Miles:  179.38

Journey with Friends¬†– Week 16

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, April 16, 2017 – It’s been a tough past couple of weeks my friends.  I’ll be honest in saying that I’ve been totally overwhelmed with getting my car straightened out and getting my body back to where it was before this awful ordeal.  I have an appointment next Wednesday to get the car looked at one more time to see if they can finally get it fixed.  And hopefully my body is at the point now that it will let me walk without feeling constant pain.  Miles Moved: 0.44

Monday, April 17, 2017 –  I’m starting it off slow but today was the first time I have walked for exercise in 12 days – it felt like a lifetime!  I took it really slow and could feel towards the end of my 30 minutes that it was beginning to be a bit too much.  I can honestly say that I’ve missed walking.  I just feel so much better moving.  Miles Moved: 2.53

Tuesday, April 18, 2017 –  What makes it worth walking?  Getting high five’s from perfect strangers who have been watching you walk for months now – LOL.  I was walking today and the offices across from us had a couple of guys outside.  They came up to me and said they had been missing me and was glad to see I was back.  Then they all gave me high fives.  Now, they didn’t slow me down one bit.  They walked and talked with me!  How fabulous was that?  Miles Moved: 2.46

Wednesday, April 19, 2017 –  The weather was perfect today – 70 degrees.  Awesome – felt like walking near the beach since the rains are still in our area.  What makes great upbeat walking?  Upbeat music.  I have 16 songs on my iPhone titled ‘workout’.  When I walk, I hit the shuffle button that way every day is different.  Out of the 16 songs, there are only TWO slow songs.  When they come on, I can take my walk down a notch.  But when the upbeat songs are playing, I’m hauling it on my path that I’ve created around my office building.  Miles Moved: 2.29

Thursday, April 20, 2017 –   It’s getting hot here in the south this week.  By the time I get done walking, I’m a puddle.  Definitely I will have to start bringing my gym bag to work next week.  Miles Moved: 2.48

Friday, April 21, 2017 –   Did extra time today on my walk.  I’m definitely feeling so much better.  I would probably say close to 100%.  YAY!  Thanks ya’ll so much for your kind thoughts during this awful time ‚̧ Miles Moved: 2.59

Saturday, April 22, 2017 –  Today is Earth Day.  I must get outside and enjoy Mother Nature today.  And for working out today, I earned a cool badge on my exercise app on my i-watch/i-phone.  Cool beans.  It’s the little things that make me happy ūüôā  Miles Moved: 2.54


Thoughts for the week: After the two weeks I’ve had with trying to recuperate, I needed some motivation.  So I did some picture comparisons.  I think that’s good – especially for times like now where you need to see where you are coming from.  It’s not a race to see who gets there the fastest.  It’s about getting more fit for life.  That took me so long to figure out.  I took it easy for the two weeks after the accident.  I was beat up – purple, blue, swollen and bruised.  For those two weeks, it seemed like my aches ached.  I ache every day because of my RA so it’s nothing new for me to hurt.  But those two weeks, I literally felt like I had been hit by a car… well I was hit by a car – LOL.  Finally getting back to walking, it was like coming home this week.  Slowly my body is adjusting.  There is still some tightness in my sternum area but the swelling is finally going down.  I can breathe now without feeling like an elephant is doing a tap down on my chest.  So the bottom line – I’m back my friends.  I wanted to share this picture with you.  I still have a LONG ways to go but hey I’m here for the rest of my life ‚̧  Thanks for listening and your support sweet friends.  HUGS TO YOU ALL!


 

This week walked: 15.33

Journey with Friends¬†– Week 15

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 Рall with one single goal in mind Рto live better.  Welcome to our journey to share our goals and our accomplishments and our disappointments and frustrations.

Together we can do this!


Sunday, April 9, 2017 Р Okay the pain is not good.  There seems to be something more wrong that what it should be.  I made an appointment with my regular doctor for tomorrow afternoon.  Hopefully I can get some answers.  I hope.   Miles Moved: 0.47

Monday, April 10, 2017 Р  Missed a couple of hours of work this afternoon and went back to the doctor.  After many, MANY X-rays, poking and prodding, we are waiting for some results to come back.  In the meantime, the doctor has changed some of the medicines originally prescribed to me.  And with the whiplash, I have a wonderful new accessory in a neck brace.  I feel like that is my cone of shame Рpoor dogs.  I really feel for them now when they have to wear a neck cone.  And no walking this week.  The doctor also wants to get me into physical therapy when some swelling comes down in my chest.  Miles Moved: 1.32

Tuesday, April 11, 2017 – ¬† Okay, note to self. ¬†Do not take a full pill of the new medicine when going to work. ¬†It threw me for a loop! ¬†I actually had to lay down during my lunch break I was so dizzy and sleepy. ¬†Felt much better afterwards. ¬†The pain is still intense and the swelling is harsh on my chest. ¬†I can breathe and feel the pain. ¬†The neck brace does help. ¬†By mid-afternoon, it is so hard to keep my head held up. ¬†With the neck brace, it helps. ¬†I’m trying to be nice to myself during this time and recuperate. ¬†I feel kind of useless though. ¬†I can’t lift anything or do too much right now. ¬†Miles Moved: 0.96

Wednesday, April 12, 2017 – ¬†The doctor called me today and asked me to go for additional x-rays. ¬†NOTE to pain – you can go away any day now and you won’t be missed. ¬†I’m just saying ūüė¶ Miles Moved: 1.16

Thursday, April 13, 2017 – ¬†Finally got some answers from the gazillion x-rays that have been taken. ¬†It’s going to take 6-8 weeks to heal. ¬†I have to take it easy but can finally start walking again Monday – slowly though. ¬†I can’t believe how much I have missed my walking. ¬†Maybe I am changing to the other side – LOL. ¬†Miles Moved: 0.87

Friday, April 14, 2017 – ¬†Finally the pain is starting to go down. Don’t get me wrong, it’s still there but I’m almost feeling human. Definitely I’ll try walking Monday. ¬† Miles Moved: 1.36

Saturday, April 15, 2017 – ¬†Crappers. I think there is more unseeing damage to the back of my Jeep. My back passenger tail light is not working nor the break light on that side. I’ll be calling the insurance company Monday. Joybells. ¬† Miles Moved: 1.06


Thoughts for the week: There are obstacles in life. ¬†I have experienced a mountain of one in the past two weeks. ¬†With the pain, meds and not being able to hardly move, I gained some weight back. ¬†I could be harsh on myself and give up. ¬†But you know what? ¬†I’m not a quitter. ¬†This is life and life happens. ¬†So what am I going to do? ¬†As my awesome mother-in-law would say, “Pull yourself up by your boot straps sweetie and hold on – it’s going to be a bumpy ride”! ¬†So by the time you read this on Monday, April 17, 2017 – I will be back STRONG! ¬†Thank you my friends for the emails and phone calls – they have really meant the world to me ‚̧


This week walked: 7.20

TOTAL 2017 Miles:  149.19


Weight Loss:  -5 pounds (95 more to go)

Together we can do this!


Sunday, April 2, 2017 – ¬† I have to give a shout out today to my sister Tina. ¬†She ran the 2017 Shamrock Shuffle in Chicago today. ¬†What an awesome feat in itself! ¬†This is a picture of her at the end of the race. ¬†How appropriate for a beer after a Shamrock Shuffle, huh? ¬†She has already signed up for another race in July. ¬†Now give me a walking race – I might just try one! ¬†Congrats my sister!! ¬†‚̧ Miles Moved: 1.45 miles

Monday, April 3, 2017 – ¬† I knew it was bound to happen. ¬†It’s raining outside this morning and we are in for storms all day. ¬†I’m going to have to walk Lucifer when I get home from work unless it stops for a bit outside. ¬†I hate changing my schedule up. ¬†I like doing the walking for lunch and not messing my evenings up. ¬†But we shall see how it goes. ¬†Miles Moved: 2.41

Tuesday, April 4, 2017 – ¬† Yay! ¬†I was able to walk yesterday as well as today in between the storms. ¬†Thank goodness for that. ¬†There’s just something so fulfilling to walk outside and actually see things. ¬†I love my treadmill but lately I can’t get enough of outside. ¬†Miles Moved: ¬†2.95

Wednesday, April 5, 2017 – ¬† My friends, I’m down for the week. ¬†Last night I was involved in a car accident on the way home. ¬†I was stopped at a red light, when it turned green I took my foot off of the brake. ¬†Right about then, someone flew into the back of me. ¬†There wasn’t much damage to my Jeep – thank goodness. ¬†The car that hit me had a lot of front end damage. ¬†I went to the emergency room and was diagnosed with whiplash. ¬†I’m on medicines and I’m home from work today. ¬†I was told to take it easy the rest of the week to give myself some time to heal. ¬†So, I’m not going to be walking the rest of the week. ¬†But never fear – next week I will be back! ¬†Miles Moved: 0.65

Thursday, April 6, 2017 – ¬† I hate not walking. ¬†I’m still having a lot of pain and now it seems it’s going down my back. Miles Moved: 1.02

Friday, April 7, 2017 Р    I never thought I would say it but I miss my walking.  Miles Moved: 1.55

Saturday, April 8, 2017 – ¬† Okay something has to give soon. ¬†Tried going to the market but could not finish it. ¬†The pain gets so intense my body starts shaking. ¬†Then I take meds which make me nauseous and sleepy. I’m going back to the doctor Monday afternoon. I just don’t feel right. ¬†Miles Moved: 0.53


Thoughts for the week: ¬†never take life for granted. ¬†I’m really feeling low right now. ūüėę


This week walked: 10.01

TOTAL 2017 Miles:  141.99


Weight Loss:  -20.00 pounds (80 more to go!)
