I am slacking!!! Here it is a gorgeous (yet still cool) day and I didn't take the dogs for a walk. Not even a quick 15 minute jaunt around the block. No, I just stood on the patio and let them do their thing like I've done all winter long. Well, it's time to stop making excuses for not getting out and walking. Spring is here and the next week is supposed to be springlike.
Sampson (my springer mix) is over weight and with his short legs and long body (doxy other half of mix) that is bad on his back and joints. If I want to keep him around another 8 years, I need to get both he and I healthy again. Yes, I put an I in that sentence. I need to be healthy, too. And what a better way to do it than walking the dogs after work!
On the other hand, I do feel great! I'm losing weight, I don't get winded running up the stairs, and I have more energy! I'm doing a lot better!
