A New Day
Thursday, April 04, 2019
I have been staying in lately because we had our new addition to the family, a puppy named Rosie, spayed. I am shocked at how quickly my weight has wanted to go up. It is only 5 pounds up but I need to put the brakes on before it affects my clothing size.
One of the things Rosie has helped me with is a mental picture of what 21 pounds looks like! That is what she weighs now, and I had to carry her up and down the stairs to reach the backyard from the kitchen where she was staying. Those 21 pounds felt VERY HEAVY to me! And yet when I lost 25 pounds it made a big difference in how I felt, but I kept thinking about the 25 I still wanted to lose. I have put 5 back on within this week, and I am shocked at how quickly that happened, but I will get it off again. Rosie is running and jumping again, and soon we will get back to our walks. I pick her up now for hugs and think about those 21 pounds. It is a lot! And I need to have more pride in having removed that from my body!
My daffodils are in full bloom. Rosie is rolling around in the area I have my tulips, so not sure I will get to see them this year! I need to buy some little decorative fences so I have a visual I can train her with to stay out of the flower beds. She keeps us on our toes trying to teach her good manners. She was the class clown in the Puppy Obedience classes. Very friendly but not listening!
Raining today so trying to decide what we can do for exercise and time together. Love early mornings with the day all laid out before us. Hope you all have a good one!
