My Journey

My Life, one day at a time!

Hey People!  We made it to Friday!  Whew, it was touch and go there for awhile.  It is the 5th of October today, and right now it is 88 degrees out.  I know I live in Atlanta, but just a little cooler would be nice, BUT, again, I will take this over the cold any day!  What is the weather like where you are at?

Crazy Day today.  My plan was to get a little more (drawer and cupboard) cleaning done, but some how, the day has slipped away.  I know me, and I am a person who, the more I have to do, the more I get done.  The less I have to do, the less I get done.  Now, that does not make a lot of sense, I know, but it is the way I am.  I am getting a lot of LITTLE things caught up and out of the way, so that when Monday hits, (and I am sure Monday will be the day from hell because the Chinese will be back to work) I have all the little things done.  So I do feel good about that.  I did want to do a little updating on my blog website this week, and that did not happen, maybe over the weekend.

I told you yesterday that I would post my workout I am doing this now, and the Max Weight I hit, well here it is:

Lying Tri Press with Dumb Bells 3 sets of 6 reps Max 20 lbs

Tri Dips 3 sets of 10

Rope Tri Push Down   3 sets of 6 reps Max 40 lbs

Dumb Bell Curl  3 sets of 6 reps Max 15 lbs

Standing Bi Curl with Bar  3 sets of 6 reps  Max 35 lbs

Alternate Dumb Bell Curl   3 sets of 6 reps Max 15 lbs

Rope Abs   3 sets of 6 reps Max 90 lbs

Farmers Walk  3 laps Max 35 lbs

and lots of Sprints up and down the hall

My goal by the end of next week is to increase each weight by a minimum of 5 lbs.

I made the Organifi Red Juice correctly today, one scoop in 8 oz of water, (I might try sparkling water tomorrow) and it has a very GOOD taste.  I know it has only been two days, but I do feel a little difference in my jalk and my work out.  I am committing to drinking this every morning, until the bottle is gone, and than see how I am doing.

As for the Organifi Pumpkin Spice, I might have to get a few more bottles of this.  This is so good, and I know I sleep SO MUCH better taking this.

Remember to go the site

And check out all of these great products.  When you go to place your order, enter the Code TAMIE15 for your discount.

Speaking of Codes, I have been giving you all the wrong codes for your Four Athletic Wear.  I just read the e-mail today they sent to me with my new code for you readers.  So, go to

And when you place your order, enter Code tamiesjourney.  Let me know what you ordered and how you like it once you receive it.  Have you seen the new Paleomg Wear Yet?  What do you think of this?

Who is binge watching and if you are, what are you watching.  We kind of ran out of shows to watch, for now, I am sure there will be more, we just have to look.  But we have been watching the Barrett Jackson Auto Auctions, I know, weird, right?  Have you ever watched this show?  Some of these cars go for ridiculous amounts.  There was one the other night, and it was a Porsche of some kind, just can’t remember the details on it, but it sold for 1.2 million dollars.  Yes, you did read that correctly.  Wow, for a CAR!!!!!

Anyway, if you are binge watching anything on Netflix now, let me know what it is, I need some new ideas.  Send your shows to

so I can have something to binge watch on.

Can you believe it is October already?  Where has this year gone?  For us, the months of August and September are kind of blur, that was when hubs was in the hospital and home recovering.  Things certainly have changed for both of us since all of this happened to him.  Our lifestyle is pretty much not the same, much more laid back.  Not so hurry up and more

just taking it easy.

Which reminds me, I love candles.  I don’t buy them a lot because hubs is very finicky about smells.  He has a super keen sense of smell, so I am very careful when I do buy candles.  I think I mentioned this the other day, I bought these Aloha Bay Chakra Candles.   I used to buy them all the time, but hadn’t seen them for a long time.  I got the Positive Energy, which is Moroccan Rose and Chamomile, and I got the Money Candle, which is Cassia, Clove and Nutmeg. I light one or the other at night, when we sit down to relax for the day, and it is just a nice light fragrance.  I also burn a lot of incense, and that I just buy random scents.  I like to have smells in the condo, especially when we can’t have the windows open to get fresh air in.

Ok, what are your plans for the weekend? We really don’t have any, we are going shopping Sunday, need just a few things for the kitchen, since we have been doing so much cooking recently.  When we down sized from our house, we got rid of so many things, and we really did not do a lot cooking, just simple things, for years.  Time to check out new stuff.

Tell me what you are doing and send pictures, if you dare!

So, until next week guys, send your comments to

And remember, BE HAPPY, Life is to short to be frowning, BE ACTIVE, life is to short to sit around all day, and STAY HYDRATED, water is 50 to 60% of your body, so drink up.

And until next


I would love to hear your feedback
