Marley & Me

Sunday, January 04, 2009

Went to see the movie, OMG I laughed & cried & went home & thanked Sasha for not destroying my house...LOL...I also hugged her a little bit extra because this movie made me realize I will not have her forever.
I visited the Humane Society last week & have been back there several times to visit & observe a dog I fell for online. His name is Max and today I filled out the adoption papers for him. I will turn it in on Monday & possibly, hopefully have him join my little family circle as my walking companion! He is gorgeous (to me) & I hope when we do a "Meet & Greet" everything will work out just fine & Ms Sasha will approve of him. As much as I love Sasha, her idea of going for a walk is to stroll for about 1/2 mile (at the most) & then hitch a ride back home, meaning me carrying her LOL

I took a break from exercise, but will have my scheduled weight work out tomorrow. All in all it was a take it easy, lounge around the house in my PJ's until the afternoon kinda day. I did nothing but cruised the net, visited the SP site off & on...and watched LMN! Very relaxing, very much needed!

    Ooooh.... I can't bring myself to see Marly and Me... I heard they put him to sleep and I don't think I could watch that. It makes me think of someday having to lose my own Bailey.

    I can't wait to see that movie. I loved the book.

I hear you on the tiny dog issue. I have two little dogs. The smaller of the two is great for about 2 miles tops. After that, he puts on the brakes and it's all over. I throw him in the back pack and he's happy. The other one can walk a bit further but still is not a lover of long walks. Running? Never gonna happen with these two except at the dog park where they run and frolic like little children.

My issue got solved when I decided to "borrow" a large dog from a friend. This dog can run forever and is large enough to present a believable threat were someone stupid enough to think about harming me. I'd have a large dog in a minute were it not for my parrots. I'd hate for a dog to decide it was hunting season in the house and a bird lose its life.

Good luck on getting your new dog. I hope it works out perfectly. Fun times!

60 minutes!!!

Saturday, January 03, 2009

Today I got a bit frustrated with myself because my thoughts started to wander to those "Could have, Should have, Would have" moments & I could feel myself getting all bumped out & sad about it, so, I decided to stop this "Memory Lane" moment in it's track.
I changed clothes & jumped on the treadmill! Yeah...let's work this out walking!
I stayed on there for freakin 60 continuous minutes emoticon I varied the speed (2.0 - 3.0), the incline (1 - 3%) & just kept going, I guess watching TV helped also! I think I sweat all my frustration, aggression & sadness out, because right now I feel pretty darn good about myself & I am thinking that I actually can do this, new life, new body, new me!

New Year...

Thursday, January 01, 2009

New year, new day, new attitude...I'm trying, but it's hard. I think it's the hardest thing I ever had to do. To let go of yesterday & go on with today.., by myself! But, I know I have to, I have to go through the pain, not around it & I baby steps & one day at a time. Changed a few things today, including my sign on my posts, to reflect & reinforce a different attitude. If you can envision it, you can achieve it, right? Right...

Today was also my first day back weight training! I used to love working with free weights (years ago), another baby step towards a healthier new lifestyle emoticon


My 2008 reflection

Thursday, January 01, 2009

The year 08 was the happiest, yet the saddest year for me.I experienced incredible joy, yet also incredible pain, the highest high & the lowest low. I wish I would have never experienced it, yet I am thankful I did. I wish I could erase it out of my mind forever, yet I want to keep it close to my heart... forever!

I know I have to close this door, actually slam this door shut... yet I still feel emotionally unable to do so. It feels like, if I close this door, if I let go of hope, if I stop waiting, it will erase everything good about this year, everything that meant the world to me will be officially gone.

I don't think I ever hurt like that before emoticon
