Mind if I vent?

Thursday, July 20, 2017

It's been a week. My momentum has diminished to almost nothing. My parents are on vacation so I am watching their 2 dogs. Both are older and take various medications, which is fine but one of them hasn't eaten in a week. I'm used to her not eating for a day or two whenever she comes here, she's a prissy little thing. But by Tuesday afternoon, I called the vet. She's on a special diet so I can't feed her regular dog food so I didn't know what to do. We chatted and I tried their recommendation which didn't work. This morning she was lethargic and tail between her legs, breathing fast and still not eating. I called again and took her in. After blood test, chest film and urine sample, turns out she had a uti. My parents won't like the vet bill, but their dog will be well when they get home. 😱😜 On top of that mess, I have been sick most of the week. Vomiting and the runs. Sorry, tmi, I know. So basically, between a sick dog and a sick me, I haven't done anything right. I ate pizza. Something I said I was not doing anymore. I drank a sprite - trying to settle my stomach- which didn't help too much. Exercise? Nope. Desire to eat right and exercise? Yea. Sure. I'm making soup tonight. It's a tad warm outside but soup sounds great to me! I may attempt to go out and walk this evening or put in a Leslie Sansone video and work out that way. But then again, I might not do anything lol I need to get my head back. I just restarted on SparkPeople and was doing great. Seems like 1 thing can throw me off and i stop doing what I need to do. Why? What can't I just do what I need to do? Why is this always the way it is? It's been a lifetime of: next year I will wear a bathing suit and go to the beach. Next year I will buy a cute dress. Next year I will finally be thin and try to get on a roller coaster. Next summer, next Christmas, next season... why is my life always "next?" Why can't I just do this once and for all? Why can't I be happy? Why can't I be comfortable in my own skin?

    You said it in your blog and probably don't realize it. You're taking care of the dogs for your parents. Taking dog to vet. We always have time to do for or help others but neglect ourselves. We can think of 1,000 reasons why we can put off our needs but if someone needs us we are there. It's great you're helping your parents/dogs. Just put forth the same effort for yourself.....💕💕 emoticon
