Goodbye my Faithful Friend

Wednesday, September 04, 2013

Said goodbye to my much beloved Border Collie on Sunday - after a harrowing few weeks - she developed aggressive lymphoma and deteriorated very quickly - it has been gutting. Still can't believe that my walking companion is gone. Everywhere I look she is missing but I still feel her close. I like to think she is off chasing sparrows with new friends...and she will welcome me again one day.

We will get another puppy soon as I have to have something to look forward to - can't stay in the overwhelming grief.

We lost our Bendix to cancer too. It took the poor big strong dog's legs right out from under him. He was perfectly clear at the end and still struggling to move, but never showed his suffering which must have been great:(

    I want to cry with you. I lost my Pom about 6 years ago and even tho we now have a Blue Heeler and 3 Jack Russells, I still have that spot in my heart that is still soft for him. Take care and hope you get your pup soon.

Why I really want to lose weight

Wednesday, July 31, 2013

I guess the reason I really want to lose weight is so I can be more active with my kids - I want to enjoy the outdoors more with them. Also I want to be a good role model to my daughter - she is only 5 and because of an underlying neurological issue has low muscle tone - which means that she looks a little floppy and has a pronounced tummy. I have noticed her helping herself to food a lot more lately - so a week or so back we had a talk - and agreed that we would both like to try to be her eating and mine is more under control - and we check in with each other about whether we are really hungry...if we are, we eat, if we're not we spend time reading a book or playing a game. It feels good to have a more regulated approach.


MIndful Eating

Thursday, April 25, 2013

Have been listening to some of the recordings on the The Centre for Mindful Eating website ( and have found then FANTASTIC. Really helpful in slowing down the eating and actually enjoying it. The shift from quantity of food to quality is amazing. I find myself choosing healthy food that I actually WANT to eat - and it's tasty and satisfying.
