Today was a challenge

Monday, June 24, 2013

I'm still being positive, but I have to admit that today challenged me. Monday's are my day off. Today I took Poppet (my dog) and Teazer (my cat) to the vet. First time taking them together. That wasn't bad at all. However, the "girls" both have issues. Poppet has arthritis, and her gums are receding. She has other, ongoing issues too. Teazer's gums have not improved after being on antibiotics, so we are going to try a medication that I will rub on her gums and teeth.

Ok, that was first. I had a good breakfast before going to the vet. Came home, had a nice lunch. A nice fruit snack later. Then.... I WANTED SOMETHING TO MUNCH ON!!! SOMETHING EITHER SALTY OR CHOCOLATEY. I didn't give in. Oh boy, I sure could have, but I didn't. I didn't want to undo what I've been working so hard at. It's hard changing old habits. I could've had carrots or something else healthy, but I know that if I eat ANYTHING when I'm in that frame of mind I will overeat. And I don't mean good healthy food, either.

So, instead of eating mindlessly I took a short nap. I felt so much better. It's amazing what a short nap can do. Then I got up and did some cleaning. I feel good, and I am proud that I didn't give in.

    I give you a TON of credit for taking both of the girls together. I am just not that brave!!
And CONGRATS for waiting out that mindless eating today! Good job. I wish I could occasionally take a short nap - but they don't work for me!!
Hope the rest of your week is just as successful!!

    Sorry to hear that the kids check up didn't go as well as hoped. Glad you had the presence of mind to take a nap. That never would have occurred to me. Keep up the great work

    Congratulations on not giving in to those urges for something salty or chocolatey. I know how hard that can be. Our cat, Mario, is almost done with his antibiotics, he had a urinary infection, he's doing lots better. Hope your pets improve. Have a good evening.

Hugs,
Shirl
