This weekend has been filled completely with puppy management. I haven’t had much time to read, write, or rest. I hoped it would slow down now that she’s eight months old but she still needs 24/7 observation since everything goes into her mouth. Hmm, a lesson for me there I think. 🙂
The first of the year our neighbors set off some really loud fireworks & that turned our formerly fearless puppy into a nervous mess. Every time there is the slightest noise her eyes roll & she start looking up at the ceiling.
Now, what does this have with weight management? It limits meal planning, preparation & consumption. I speed through eating so it’s unsatisfying. We crate train her & that’s where she’s sleeping as I type but she can’t be there endlessly.
Friday morning I fell, landed hard on the tile kitchen floor. Fortunately the only thing broken was my rolling walker with the seat & we had the funds available to order another one. It’s supposed to arrive tomorrow. Yay!
So my exercises have continued, just at a much slower pace. I also have continued logging my food on my laptop, taking my vitamins & prescriptions, drinking plenty of water & generally taking better care of my body. I missed some sleep on Thursday night & since then have been catching up in increments.
Tonight I had turkey patties with bell pepper & onions sauteed in olive oil, spinach with butter & salt & a baked potato with sour cream. All portions consumed in moderation.
I can tell my pants are fitting looser but haven’t taken measurements yet. Time will tell. And it does take time. Patience & perseverance are the ‘secret tools’ to mastering this weight issue of mine.

I continue to learn daily & put into action things I find helpful. I keep what works & eliminate what doesn’t.
