Week of  06/10-06/16/2018 – Week 23

“Dear Journal –  Baby steps.  I’ve been tweaking dinner options this week.  There really are some amazing foods that you can prepare that are totally tasty and the hub unit loves.  Planning is the key though.  I’m trying to do my cooking prep on Sundays for the week.  Then during the week, I pull from already cooked ingredients in the fridge.  It saves time and getting the house hot from actually cooking the first time.  What a time saver this is!  I can’t believe I haven’t tried this earlier.  But like they say, better late than never!”

Week of  06/03-06/09/2018 – Week 22

“Dear Journal – Baby steps.  Do you ever notice that when you gain weight, you don’t realize how quickly it takes.  But when you try to lose weight, it seems like forever?  LOL – But we win in the end.  You just have to take baby steps.  It’s not easy.  In fact, it’s a challenge.  But knowing you have a problem and jumping on it full force is the answer.  Two weeks gone so far and I’m down 7 pounds.  I admit it.  I’ve had a soda here/there.  I know I shouldn’t.  But I’m trying.  That’s the main answer – trying.  Because you know in the end, it doesn’t matter how many times you fail at something.  It’s how many times you get back up and try again <3”

Week of  05/20-05/26/2018 – Week 20

“Dear Journal – Sweet vacation.  Took a couple days off to visit my sister in Chicago, Illinois.  What an awesome time to get away.  I think every once in a while, we need some time.  Time away to play from the ordinary day-to-day life.  It gives us time to refresh and get back into the swing of us.  No worries – no thinking of work – just play.”

Week of 05/27-06/02/2018 – Week 21

“Dear Journal – Back to the grind with new commitments.  Next visit to my sister will be in October when she runs her Chicago Marathon.  This gives me four months to get my life in control, get on a scheduled routine and hit it hard… that is if the couch was cooperating.  Hit my left foot solid on the leg of the couch at home.  My left foot is swollen and turning all kinds of colors from yellow, black, green and some orange and reds.  Leave it to me to find the couch in the dark.  Baby steps is what I’m doing now… of course that’s all I can do right now – LOL.  But this will pass.”


Week 20 walked: 9.69 miles

Week 21 walked: 5.84 miles

TOTAL 2018 Miles:  151.28

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 05/06-05/12/2018 – Week 18

“Dear Journal – Life is better with a plan.  I think I finally found a plan that I can work with and do every day.  I’m a planner like that.  So what is the plan you ask?  I’m glad you asked Journal.  So for part of my lunch during the week, I’m doing 15 minutes of light stretches/yoga.  This has been giving me a solid rock during the week.  I don’t feel as pressured or stressed when I get home.  Another 15 minutes I do a solid walk.  And then I’m watching what I’m eating.  And the big one – no soda’s.  I did it once for almost six months.  I can do this again – no soda’s.  And more water… water is your friend.  Be one with your friend.”

“Dear Journal – Things are good.  I think I’m controlled of the stress these days pretty well.  I’m trying my breathing/relaxing tips and they seem to be working.  I’m also trying to work through my pain.  Some days I do better than others.  I’m also trying to pick up my walking more.  I’ve been doing a little at a mile a day.  This week goal’s is 1.5 miles a day.  I’m picking it up daily to get back where I was before surgery.  It’s hard but baby steps.  I see Summer finally getting here… yep that’s right – Summer.  It seems we might be skipping right over the cool months of Spring and jumping right into the hot days of Summer.  I’m so happy – NOT.  I’m not hot kind of person.  I didn’t complain about the cold – LOL.  Baby steps, right?”

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 ❤
