After reading your blog about Tazzy, I read a blog that had these recipes for doggy popsicles. I imagine having these ready will help keep her cool too:
Peanut Butter Popsicles: Peanut butter, banana and water. Mix and freeze. It doesn’t get much simpler than that.
Tuna Pops: No oven required. Blend up some tuna, yogurt and dried parsley for these doggie favorites.
DIY “Frosty Paws”: Yogurt, banana, peanut butter and honey are the basic ingredients in the Frosty Paws recipe. You can make this doggie ice cream at home.
Smoothie Pops: Want to add some fruit to all these peanut butter recipes? This is the popsicle for you.
Freezy & Cheesy: Mix together equal parts cottage cheese and cheddar cheese chunks. If your dog loves cheese half as much as mine does, these will be a hit.
Frozen Kong: The ingredients for this one are the easiest yet. Plug up the hole at the end of the Kong toy (I use the old standby – peanut butter), fill with water, and freeze. Or, buy this crazy kit from Kong so you can make Kong-shaped goodies.
Chicken Soup for a Hot Day: Freeze up some chicken or beef stock. The low sodium type is best. And make sure there is no onion in the stock.
Baby Food: Teach your baby how to share. Frozen baby food is another great way to cool down your doggie. Blueberries and bananas are safe for dogs.
Pumpkin Treats: Blend some canned pumpkin with plain yogurt and freeze for some tasty reminder that Autumn will arrive someday.

So far so good, I have lost 23 lbs since January and about 6-7 inches total. My blood pressure is down and I am alot more energetic. Summer is alittle harder to lose weight cause we BBQ and have a couple of drinks every so often on the weekends, but I haven't really gained weight because of it just maintained. All in all not bad, I'm tan and getting thinner lol
Its been a hectic year, but I feel its been okay. I've lost 10 lbs from what I can tell,a nd have gotten stronger... I agree motivation, especially when its warm outside, is hard to find when I need to make myself go to the gym..
To make the rest of the year awesome, I am doing Live Fit from bodybuilding dot com, and working on strength to burn fat, while really committing to my diet. Hopefully, by October (hubby's birthday, celebrating 10 years married, the whole thing) I can be fitter.

My 2013 is going pretty well. I have managed to maintain my weight within 5/6 lbs. I usually do well, but have to admit that June wasn't as good as it should have been. I am having trouble with motivation right now ~ maybe it's the heat !!!
For the rest of 2013, I am going to just try to maintain my weight, and continue my exercise routine.
