“Dear Journal – Life is good.  The number on the scale is finally catching up – YAY!  You go for so long without that stupid number moving and then all of a sudden it plays catch up in the right direction.  Time and patience – neither one of which I have at times.  But I’m learning.  Live life fully is my motto these days – no regrets.  Learn and grow.”

Week of  06/24-06/30/2018 – Week 25

“Dear Journal – Day by day, step by step.  You know what of the things I absolutely hate about trying to eat better?  The constant cooking at home.  Yep, I said it.  The constant cooking.  Don’t get me wrong.  We have to eat… although I keep questioning the hub unit why he has to eat every single day – LOL.  I do have skills in the kitchen.  The hub can vouch for that.  But sometimes… I would rather make things easy and just go out to eat.  Wouldn’t we all?  But life is not easy and right now the ‘quick’ thing can’t be for me.  I have to get my decision making choices down first and then in the future I might be able to make better choices in a restaurant.”

Week of  06/17-06/23/2018 – Week 24

“Dear Journal – “When did life become a hurry?  Everyone seems to be in such a rush.  People flying down the road – they have to be first.  The same person that was behind you has to go around you to be in front.  People are rushing through the stores cutting in front of you and grabbing things.  People constantly talking on their cell phones.  Life needs to slow down.  People need to slow down.  What happened to sitting on the deck just breathing and relaxing?  People are constantly multi-tasking.  I think this week I will slow a bit.  Relax.  Sit and enjoy dinner with the family.  Talk.  Enjoy just being together and not rushing.”

Week of 05/13-05/19/2018 – Week 19

“Dear Journal – I think one of the biggest things about losing weight/eating healthier is getting your mindset in the right direction.  If your mind is not there, it’s not going to happen regardless of how many times you attempt.  Another for me is setting goals.  If I have the mindset and a mini goal to get to, it’s a done thing.  It’s the way I’m made just like others I’m sure.  In saying that, I’m re-adjusting my life, getting things in line and hitting my plan effective June 1.  Why am I putting it off until June 1?  Why not start today?  Well, we have vacation plans this week/next.  I’m going to enjoy myself and then hit it hard with monthly goals.  That is the plan.  So my walking pace will be back in June – come hell or high water.”

Week of 04/15-04/21/2018 – Week 15

“Dear Journal – Sometimes you need to sit, simmer, breathe and just be for a bit.  I’ve been trying to go out on the back deck at night right at dusk just to do this.  A little meditation all to myself just to be in the moment and let things go.  I’ve been stressed lately.  I can admit that.  Nothing in particular but everything all rolled up into one festering just waiting to explode.  Nothing specific you can put your finger on of what is pushing you over the edge.  Then something little happens and everything explodes with you ending up crying like a big baby… over what?  Who knows?  It’s been that way for the past couple of months.  But last week something happened.  Something positive.  And with that positive happening, life settled back down again into the right puzzle pieces and all felt right in the world.  What have I been stressed over?  Who knows and at this point who cares.  Life is good now.  Funny how that happens in life, right?  So what does this teach us?  Live the moment, good and bad, remember to breathe and that this soon will pass ❤

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.”

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!

Week of 02/25-03/03/2018 – Week 8

Dear Journal – We’ve had stumbling blocks lately.  I admit that I got a little frustrated… okay maybe a lot frustrated.  Before my surgery, I was in a great mind spot in working out and exercising.  Being down for three months without being able to do much, I lost my mojo.  Then work has been so loving in sharing multiple colds/viruses the past month.  I get over one thing and then BOOM I get the next cold.  My immune system is so challenged that someone with a cold can just look at me with a stink eye and I get sick. It sucks but the challenge is real.  So Monday, I start again for the gazillionth time.  It’s not how many times you start… it’s that one time that you finish.  So back to baby steps and one day and one meal at a time”
