I have a very important announcement… Cooper is finally back at doggy daycare!!! I took Cooper to the vet this morning after teaching warm gentle yoga and working my shoulders, chest and tri’s at the gym. They give him the thumbs up and removed his staples. They also said as long as doggy daycare was comfortable monitoring him he was okay to go play. We went straight there!
With Cooper taken care of I was determined to get some pesky items off my to-do list that had been hanging over me for months. First on the list was washing the car cover that stays on my backseat. Poor Cooper has been sitting on it unwashed for months meaning he was just sitting in his own dirt. (And as a vizsla, Cooper does not appreciate being dirty.) Next up I took my wedding dress to the the dry cleaners (7 months after my wedding). And, the last pesky item to check off my list was stopping by a wedding consignment store to get an idea as to what they think my original (unworn… it’s a long story) wedding dress could sell for. I’m thinking I’ll have better luck selling it online but at least I’ve started doing my research.
After those errands, I picked myself up some lunch from Panera. I needed it! I got a You Pick Two with Broccoli Cheddar Soup, a Modern Greek Salad, and a Sprouted Whole Grain Roll.
With my belly full I decided to spend some time outside in the sun. The clouds came out after about 30 minutes but it was nice to at least get some sunshine in! Next up was a shower and then actually drying my hair (*gasp*). I honestly can’t remember the last time I took the time to dry my hair but it always looks so much better when I do (both the day of and the day [or two] after).
I truly despise showering… I find it to be such a hassle… but I always feel so much better when I’m fresh and clean. One other thing I want to share before wrapping up this post is where I am in my fitness journey. I started A Girl and Her Vizsla (and stopped blogging over at Treats and Sneaks) because I wanted to write about whatever I wanted. Treats and Sneaks felt too health focused and I just wasn’t interested in health anymore. Of course, a handful of months later I’m back on the health train but this time things are VERY different. I’m paying attention to my body and what works for me, and I’ve thrown all “best practices” out the window. I drink Diet Coke and Crystal Light regularly. I count calories. I don’t focus on making sure I’m getting “superfoods” into my diet. I stay up late and stare at screens before bed. But here’s the thing… this is working for me. I’m officially down 10 lbs and I’ve never felt like I’m starving myself.
As you can see, it’s been a rocky road of ups and downs… but mostly downs (aka losing weight so I mean that in a good way). I’ve been doing what’s manageable and what feels good for me. I really wish I had stopped trying to do what worked for everyone else a long time ago because I feel amazing.
Moving on, I’m going to run two more errands. It looks like it might rain but I’m going to see if I can find a car wash that’s open. I also need to run to a Target or Walmart to pick up a new shower curtain, some Scrubbing Bubbles and some wet Swiffer pads. Tomorrow will be a workout and cleaning day. I hope you’re having an awesome Saturday! Thanks for stopping by 🙂 .
