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

Journey with Friends

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 Рall with one single goal in mind Рto live better.  Welcome to our journey to share our goals and our accomplishments and our disappointments and frustrations.

Together we can do this!


¬†I exercised this weekend! ¬†I walked the block twice – what a trooper huh? ¬†LOL. ¬†No, I couldn’t resist my friends. ¬†I did do some walking last week and I’m trying to get back into the swing of things without donuts and chocolate. ¬†I tell you, it’s been a tough couple of weeks but I’m working on it.

I’ve come to realize that life is life. ¬†You are going to have stumbles. ¬†The most important thing is to get back on the horse and carry on. ¬†You can just stoop and simmer and what if. ¬†You keep charging on to the new you. ¬†It’s not a race. ¬†We are going to trip and fall. ¬†That’s when you lean on support from your friends like I do with all of you. ¬†I can’t thank you enough for being there with me during this time.

So my friends, how was your week?

¬†Hello my friends! ¬†Another week behind us and another week before us. ¬†Last week, I have to admit that I really didn’t watch very carefully what I was eating. ¬†These weather changes here (storms, rain, clouds and then hot the next day) has my arthritis really acting up. ¬†Some days, my hips were inflamed and on fire hurting so badly. ¬†Other days it was my back. ¬†Hopefully the weather changes will settle and my body will get accustomed to the weather.

I’ve also been working on the surprise we have coming at the end of May. ¬†Nope – my lips are sealed and I will not reveal what it is. ¬†But, there has been planning to do and things to purchase to get ready for it. ¬†And I will tell you hopefully beach time will be involved so therefore swimsuits have been looked at on-line. ¬†Have you looked for swimsuits lately? ¬†WOW! ¬†What a difference they have turned in the different sizes. ¬†But, I think I found one that I like that is similar to the 60’s pin-up style – very cute I think. ¬†We shall see if it maintains that cuteness once we get it here at the Hotel Thompson – LOL.

So how was YOUR week my friends? Anything exciting going on in your part of the world?

Weekend Over – YAY!

Sigh – oinks – snorts. ¬†The weekend is over. ¬†Did you have fun? ¬†What did you do? ¬†Me? Well, I slept a lot to get plenty of rest. ¬†I also ate a lot. ¬†It’s hard maintaining this beautiful pot belly physique.

Yesterday, we watched movies on television all day long.  It was the best time!

Mommy actually pulled out all of her Twilight movies – all FIVE of them for a marathon. ¬†Daddy even watched – he lost a bet so it was mom’s choice – go mom. ¬†You know the Twilight movies, right? ¬†Most people go Team Edward or Team Jacob. ¬†I think there needs to be a Team BACON – what do you think? Snorts.

It was a great LONG day full of wolves, love and vampires.  Mom even fixed popcorn Рand yeah I let her take a picture of me.  This was delicious popcorn Рpopped on the stove the old fashioned way Рyummy and smells good!

XOXO – Team Bacon

Someone is Waiting for Bashful’s Return

20131209-013011.jpg

Watch out Bimby in Australia РI think you may have some competition here at the Hotel Thompson with Princess Coralena.  I went to the back door to look out over my kingdom this past weekend and saw this.  Princess Coralena was outside sunbathing.  She mentioned that the cold is good for her coral complexion.

I couldn’t wait to run back inside and tell mom that Princess Coralena was outside in her skippies… of course after I snapped a picture… or two of her.

I think Bashful may have his pebbles full when he comes home with her.  I think she means business.  You?
