I am SOOOO glad it is Friday! These past couple of weeks have been rough! I snagged the picture because the puppies reminded me of my Honey-Girl when she was little:
Cannot forget Milo!
Today really has not gone as I had planned. My intentions were to walk the dogs, take them to the doctor, come home, workout and then clean the house before work. I was able to take the puppies for a walk and to the doctor. I ran the vacuum and that was it. I. Am. A. Slug.
We walked 3.52 miles this morning. We had almost hit the half mile mark when we met up with Diesel, The Service Dog and his owner. They walked with us for about a mile. Well, Diesel’s owner rode his bike, Diesel, Honey, Milo and I all trotted along next to him. 🙂 It was such a nice change of pace to actually talk to another human while walking! It made the time fly by!
Honey and Milo both need to lose weight, according to their doctor. He has been saying that for a couple of years now. Milo has two new fatty lumps growing. We know they are fatty lumps because he has a good-sized one that we aspirated some cells from last year. I learned if dogs have one, they typically get more. All shots are up-to-date. Everything else is wonderful for them.
As I was driving to the vet’s office, I kept catching a whiff of poo. For about a millisecond, I was wondering why. And then . . . I realized it was because I had Milo’s stool sample in my left pocket and Honey’s in my right! I am such an idiot sometimes! LOL (I grabbed a couple of Zip Lock baggies and a plastic fork to obtain the samples before leaving the house.)
Other than that, this day has been a bust. I have eaten just about all of my caloric allotment for the day between breakfast, lunch and a waffle cone filled with chocolate ice cream!. I need to get the eating under control or else I will not get to where I want to be within the time I want to get there.
Oh well . . . This funk shall pass. I am NOT going to beat myself up for having an off couple of weeks. I am also NOT going to let these off couple of weeks completely derail the progress I have made. (It is something I have done repeatedly in the past. :-S )
It is Friday. The weekend is here. It can only get better!
