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

Do You Judge a Book by its Cover?

Do you sometimes look at a person and make a quick judgement of that person’s character without knowing anything about them? ¬†It’s only natural and I think humans do it all of the time. ¬†I mean personally, if I was to cross a clown – regardless if he looked nice or not – I would squeal like there was a 1000 hounds after me cause I ain’t talking to no clown. ¬†Capice?

But humans – they are different. ¬†Do they judge other peeps by what they wear? ¬†How they look? ¬†What they drive? ¬†Sure they do. ¬†That’s what makes us all different. ¬†BUT, are they missing out on some good friendships along their way in life by making harsh judgments?

Take this situation that recently happened with mom.  Mom, dad and Nana went to a Mexican restaurant recently.  There was a line and they were standing in a corner waiting for their name to be called.  In the meantime, this family came in (mom and dad with their daughter who was about 8-9 years old).  They put their name in to the hostess and stoodd across the room.  The daughter wanted to be held so the mom picked her up.  In doing so, her hands were full so of course the hub unit holds her purse (which is another posting for another day Рsnorts with piggy laughter).

Now, mom thought it was hilarious to see the guy holding the mom’s purse so she walks over to him. ¬†She gets really close to him and says, “That purse is awesome with your outfit. ¬†I give it a 10”. ¬†Now, the guy grins and says to mom, “Thank you darling. ¬†I try to coordinate.” ¬†It was totally hilarious and a great laugh was held by all. ¬†When mom came back, Nana was laughing and told her she was brave. ¬†Mom asked why and Nana told her why. ¬†This is what got our minds going about judging a book by its cover.

Would you have done this like mom? ¬†How about if the guy had long black hair, a beard and a mustache? ¬†How about if the guy was wearing all black with lots of studs and leather? ¬†How about if the guy was a biker dude? ¬†How about if the guy was packing heat and had a gun on his hip? ¬†Would any of this make a difference to you if he was a ‘biker dude’ or ‘the guy next door’?

I’m not saying that all biker dudes are nice – far from it. ¬†But we are saying that sometimes one needs to not make first judgments of someone. ¬†And let me tell you something, if anyone knows that it’s mom with her new purple hair. ¬†Some of the most friendliest and loyal friends can just be different ūüôā ¬†That’s your piggy thought for the day ‚ô•
