“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  07/08-07/14/2018 – Week 27

“Dear Journal – Time.  I’ve talked about it before.  We need to breathe and live in the moment.  Weight didn’t come on overnight and weight won’t go off overnight.  When you can accept that and be happy with you, I think you’ve come a long way.  I’m there now.  I’m happy.  With me today and tomorrow.  I work towards a goal but it doesn’t define me.  I define me.  That’s something we all need to grasp.  It’s an amazing place to be.  So for today Diary, be in the present!”

“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  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  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.”
