My SOUVENIR from SYDNEY AUSTRALIA and a little something for YOU too!

Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Saturday, March 31, 2012

This is about my little souvenir I picked up the last time I was in Sydney Australia. And a little gift for you too.

pics from tourists destinations and bug Australia

In the Spring 5% Challenge out next destination is Sydney Australia. I got the plane off the ground this morning for the Clovers. The last time I was in Australia (wink wink) I brought home this little cutie...

She is the newest member of our family...a female Blue & Tan Australian Terrier puppy...when she is older, she will lose some of her black...and develop a scruffy mane around her face...full grown, she will be slightly larger than our cat...Theo Doorman. We finally decided on her middle name. Thanks to everyone for all of the name suggestions in a previous blog. emoticon

We named her SYDNEY ULUROO. Our last name starts with a her initials are SUV. She is going to be my little Sport Utility soon as I get her trained to be my little running buddy. emoticon

We named her after the city Sydney and Uluru National Park. We changed the spelling... more like Jillaroo or kangaroo. emoticon

emoticon And my gift to you...not something you can feel or touch or return if you don't like is not a cheesy touristy dust collector or ugly t-shirt... it is more like advice or words of encouragement....TRACK YOUR FOOD AND STAY IN RANGE. Oh, that is the second part of the challenge this week. I am sorry, if you don't like to track. I think it is a necessary evil if you are going to be successful at this. I am a numbers kind of girl, so I don't mind tracking. You must KNOW exactly what you are eating. Think of it as KNOWLEDGE...which will give you POWER to WIN. Knowledge is power.

    Cute dog. I found a little black dog the other day when walking. Owner had driven on by after asking if I had seen it. Got cell phone number from dog's tag and called her. She was glad to get her little dog back. Dogs are good walking companions.

    Very cute dog and I 100% agree about the importance of tracking your food. I think that it is an important component of my success and obviously you share the same thinking. Thank you so much for this gift!

    You are of course correct about tracking. I need to get back to doing that. It is soooo easy to take BLT's (bites, licks and tastes) when you slack off on tracking. Thanks for the friendly reminder.

    Sydney is ADORABLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Since owning Jacks, I am now totally hooked on the Terrier breed, they are such great dogs. I'm sure she will be delighted to be your running partner.

    LOVE your gift, thank you so much for thinking of me. emoticon

I also love the blog and seeing your adventures. SUV is a cutie and it is so cool how you give your animals full names. I would love to know how

Theo Doorman got his name. emoticon

Made me chuckle. I am a animal naming nut and feel that their name is important to who they are, so kudos to you.

    SUV is a real cutie! emoticon

I like to track because I can earn points, and like to see how much protein and fiber I'm consuming

emoticon for the gift

    You are so right. It is always eye-opening when you track what you eat in a day... when you think that you knew.

    I'm a big fan of tracking also. Most of us are here because a healthy weight and/or lifestyle is not second nature to us. The only way to change that is to track, watch the patterns, learn and adjust.
