Journal to Healthier Living – Week 27

Welcome my friends.  I’m tweaking my weekly journey with my healthier living.  It’s a step in the right direction for sure.  I hope you come along for the ride.  Instead of day-to-day comments, I’m going to post something from my personal journal to share.  Hope you enjoy.  Remember all of us go down this path and we are all in it together ❤


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 Bacon

20140330-183817.jpg

Dear Bacon – Listen the water is fine my four legged pot bellied piggy.  Why don’t you come for a swim with me.  I’ll even teach you how to swim under the water.  I’m sure you will catch on fast.  What do you think?  Signed Mr. Friendly

Dear Mr. Friendly – Not that I don’t appreciate your well… friendness but I think I’ll pass.  For some reason, I think it’s better for this little oinker to stay on dry land, far away from the water and far, far away from your swimming lessons. Call it a premonition if you will.

But, carry on my friend and thank you… really.


20140330-183825.jpgDear Bacon – The nerve of our family vet.  Can you believe that (A) they had the nerve to come near my captains quarters with that proby thing and (B) they told my humans that *I* needed to go on a DIET?!  What in the world was he thinking?  Don’t my humans pay for his sound advice?  What kind of crap advice is this?  I think the look on my face tells you everything I think.  Signed Tiny

Dear Tiny – Oh dear.  That proby thing is awful.  It must be a torture device from centuries long ago.  Yep, that’s what I think.  And that look on your face.  Oh my.  You are certainly not happy.  And well… looks down at my pot belly.  I am one NOT to give any advice to you on that four lettered dirty word – D.I.E.T.  Shakes head – nope.

Not the one to do that at all my friend.


20140330-183833.jpg

Dear Bacon – I see you – purr snicker.  I have my eyes on your activities good or bad.  I’m reporting back to that Evil Elf of yours Don Juan.  You just wait.  You’re going to get it when he comes out in November.  Signed The Watcher

Dear The Watcher – Really?!  It’s not bad enough that I have rogue elf that watches my every move, you’re going to as well?  Rolls piggy eyes and walks away.  This is so not fair in this oinker’s life.  Can’t we all just get along?  Snorts


20140330-183847.jpgDear Bacon – I hate it when I get into trouble here at my casa.  Can you believe that my humans make me face the couch and sit here in time out?  It’s so humiliating.  Signed Unhappy Pooch

Dear Unhappy Pooch – WOW my friend.  That is some look you have there facing your tomb of doom.  It’s just not right.  And to put you in this time out right in the middle of the living room where you can hear and see all of the fun activities going on around you.  Shakes piggy head and clicks tongue.  Nope, just not right.  I’m sorry pal.  Maybe when you come out of serving your time, you just ignore those humans.  Show them who is getting timeout there.  Don’t give them any affection.

None whatsoever… can you last like what five seconds?  Hang in there my bud!


Dear Bacon – 20140330-183858.jpgI double kitty dare you to try this maneuver.  Heck, I triple meow dare you.  I dare you to put your back legs up over your head.  In fact if you can do this position, I will personally come over every day and give you a piggy massage – heck I’ll even clean up your room for you.  Signed Fear Factor Feline

Dear Fear Factor Feline – Really?!  That’s okay my furry friend.  That’s what I have my mommy for – massages and cleaning – snorts.  Let’s hope that cannon of yours doesn’t go off while you are bent legs over head.

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 05/06-05/12/2018 – 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?”

Journal to Healthier Living – Week 8

Welcome my friends.  I’m tweaking my weekly journey with my healthier living.  It’s a step in the right direction for sure.  I hope you come along for the ride.  Instead of day-to-day comments, I’m going to post something from my personal journal to share.  Hope you enjoy.  Remember all of us go down this path and we are all in it together ❤

 


Week of 02/25-03/03/2018 – Week 8

Dear Journal – We’ve had stumbling blocks lately.  I admit that I got a little frustrated… okay maybe a lot frustrated.  Before my surgery, I was in a great mind spot in working out and exercising.  Being down for three months without being able to do much, I lost my mojo.  Then work has been so loving in sharing multiple colds/viruses the past month.  I get over one thing and then BOOM I get the next cold.  My immune system is so challenged that someone with a cold can just look at me with a stink eye and I get sick. It sucks but the challenge is real.  So Monday, I start again for the gazillionth time.  It’s not how many times you start… it’s that one time that you finish.  So back to baby steps and one day and one meal at a time”
