“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  07/15-07/21/2018 – Week 28

“Dear Journal – Have you ever had a bump in the road snowball?  Things are rolling right along, everything is going fine and then there is a little bump that rolls and rolls and then rolls some more until it finally slaps you hard?  Then you are like WTH, where did that come from? It’s hard not to stop the current good trend you are on to confront this challenge.  Sometimes you want to ignore it and you try.  But then it won’t go away and it constant pursues your mind.  Then there are the time you do up and challenge it.  Then you wonder why you fought it to begin with and go on.  Obstacles are there.  I think it’s all about finding a happy medium without beating the hell out of the challenges and obstacles that get you through life.”

“Dear Journal – What an awesome week this was.  It was my birthday on July 3rd.  This was one of the best birthdays I’ve had in such a long time.  I was surrounded by love and I felt it.  We had a wonderful time celebrating all week – eating out and just having fun.  I felt so lucky to have so much love coming from all directions.  It was such a blessing for sure.  I didn’t count calories.  I didn’t wear my Apple i-Watch and monitor my walking.  I laughed and celebrated LIFE.  Here’s to another great year to accomplish goals now – cheers!”

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.”


This week walked: 6.10

Week of 04/22-04/28/2018 – Week 16

“Dear Journal – Do you remember the story about the tortoise and the rabbit?  Slow and easy wins the race… if there was a race.  Life is not a race.  Life is an adventure of day at a time – living in the moment.  That’s how we should live.  You hear it all of the time, “Live today like there is no tomorrow.  We are not promised tomorrow.  Live today as if it was your last day.”  But do we?  All of those cliches really do mean something.  Have fun in life.  Laugh so hard that you pee on yourself.  Drink a little too much.  Tell people you love them.  Give someone a hug – you never know when they need it.  Life doesn’t stop when you go to bed tonight.  It just recharges you for a new and fresher tomorrow to do it all over again.”


This week walked: 5.32

TOTAL 2018 Miles:  117.29

Journal to Healthier Living – Week 15

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 04/08-04/14/2018 – Week 14

“Dear Journal – It feels good to finally move a little bit more..not giant steps but a bit more.  I’m taking advantage of the good days.  The bad days I’m trying to be nice to myself.  Trying to live in the moment and tossing worries over my shoulder.  Living for the moment sounds so easy and we all attempt it.  But do we really live for the up-most potential in those words?  I’m trying and you know what?  I feel better – less worries, less stress.  Be happy.  I recently saw a sign that I bought for my office.  It reads, “Bloom where you are planted”.  I think that tells us a lot in our lives.  Don’t you?  Of course… life wouldn’t be perfect without having my new sign right near my old reliable sign of “Martha Stewart doesn’t live here.” LOL – Hey, I didn’t say I was perfect.”
