On the road for the summer

Thursday, June 27, 2013

We are on our summer "escape from the heat' trip, currently in Utah heading to Washington. Yesterday was such a sad day for me. My dearly beloved cat that I have had for 18 years since she was 6 wks old got out of our truck and we didn't realize she wasn't sleeping in her bed when we took off (our stupid fault for not checking twice) By the time we noticed she wasn't with us and we returned to where we had camped for the night she was nowhere to be found. I just pray that someone took her in and will love her like I did. I really need to get back to the discipline I had before we left. It's very different planning meals and eating when you are traveling and takes much more planning and preparation. I have gained 1 1/2 lbs which isn't too bad but I haven't lost anything in a couple of weeks. I'm thankful I didn't go on a binge of eating a lot of comfort food yesterday. I'm writing this to say to the Spark People world that I am going to do better and start measuring and logging in all my food again. I have never missed a day of signing in and spinning the wheel and I feel like this has been a big security line for me that has kept me connected even when I wasn't eating my best. So to me and anyone else who is not doing their best....we will persevere and overcome. I know there are many caring folks out there who care and even if I don't know you personally it encourages me to know we are all a huge body of folks with the same goals helping each other be successful,. Blessings to all who read this today. emoticon

    So sorry to hear about your lost, like you I hope she finds a wonderful home. My mom has 3 poodles now, but at one point about 3 years ago we had about 6 dogs. But my mom is aging and she can't look after them so as they die she is not replacing them. It is a difficult decision for her whether to euthanize them or let them die at home naturally. We had one die about 2 months ago. My mom said the dog had been ailing for a couple days and she decided to let her die at home. She caressed the animal and said she expired in her arms. Anyway, she must have been 15 years old. She was born in our house.
