A little blast from the past!

Yet another good day yesterday. I was tired again, and ended up having a cuppa coffee late in the afternoon to keep me going. I needed the pick-me-up so I could get home, harness up my Bubbie boy, and drag him and Bill around for a walk. He was a little trooper, enjoying the outing and meeting a couple of dogs along the way. Usually he's very reactive and barky and embarrassing when it comes to other dogs, but the other lady we met walking her two poo-poo'd the idea that he was mean and facilitated a nice meet'n'greet between Bubs and her dogs. Her dogs - tiny little Yorkies - didn't make a noise, and Bubs got over his over-excitement quickly, sniffed, play-bowed, barked, then laid down because no one was reacting back at him LOL Yay!

Once home, we had a delicious primal dinner and a lounge on the couch. He earned it!

No, that's not quite within my calories range. Spark harps that, due to my increased logged fitness minutes/calories burned, I should increase my intake. I did up my intended calorie burn to 2000 a week, although Fitbit is reporting that I'm burning much more than that. As long as I keep losing, I'll keep doing what I'm doing. I'm not too worried about it at this point.

It's hump day - we're almost to the weekend! Spark On!

    Great pic! I need to post some pix of my lil' hot potatoes - most nights I will have a perfect circle of sweat on my chest or back, depending upon which side I'm laying on when Clarice snuggles up to me...

There was a fitness walk at our local nature center this AM, but it was rained out! Certainly can't complain about the precipitation, we need it SO desperately - but I promised the doggies walksies as soon as it dries out a little...

    He sounds like my Toby. It embarrasses me so! You'd think he'd never had a class nor been out of the house. Sigh.
