Whew.. things finally settling down
Thursday, September 30, 2010
It's been a crazy couple of months to say the least. Luckily things are starting to settle down again, and I'm finally back to trying to work on me again. I say I'm going to be committed and then a bunch of "sh*t" hits the fan and everything goes down hill for me. The one good thing is that I learn a little something more about myself every time.
Well I finally convinced my DH after almost a year of trying that I needed a dog back in our life. My buddy Diamond went to Doggie Heaven in Oct of last year and I can't say that I've smiled a lot since then. It was very difficult for me and my DH. We are now blessed with not one but TWO, Dorgi (Pembrook Corgi/ Dauschound Mix) puppies. Linus and Lucy. I haven't stopped smiling since- and how is this diet related? Well first- I'm an emotional eater. Sad, happy, depressed, angry- it doesn't really matter I'm going to eat. Hence- I have no clue what I weigh right now (we've also lost our scale). However on the flip side of that, I've been increasing my activity. Potty training two puppies when you live in an apartment= instant exercise. I've also started jogging- Not a lot mind you, their poor little legs are very short but a couple minutes each day and we are doing more and more. This is huge for me as I've always wanted to jog or run but felt a bit silly out there by myself barely able to huff it for more than a couple steps. At least now it looks like I have to stop because my stumpy legged friends can't keep up with me!
Over the last week I've also tried to watch my diet a little better. I had stopped the Phentermine for a while (not sure why) however I've restarted this week.
Lucy is the black one, Linus is the Reddish brown one -4 weeks old in this pic however I didn't get them till 6 weeks. They will be 12 weeks this weekend.
