Meet Tiny Dodger! The newest addition to mine and J’s family.
Tiny got her name from the fact that she dodges traffic like a pro. So here I was driving home from my hometown back to Springfield on Wednesday I spot this little pup jumping through the tall grass in between two lanes of traffic along the highway. Knowing that I just could not leave her, I turned around. Picture this: me running along the side of a highway in muddy grass chasing a dog. It was pretty hilarious for drivers passing by.
Tiny is absolute skin and bones. I have to say J and I were thrilled when she took her first bite, which was after she watched Maggie take a bite. The vet thinks that she is about 7-8 weeks old and she currently weighs 3.7 pounds. Crazy!
Not knowing when her actually birthday is – I’ve decided that January 9 (the day I spotted her on the highway) is her birthday. She has hit the jackpot with J and I!
I know, I know. It’s a bit late around here, but I’ve been working all day and then came home to cook a delicious dinner for J and I. Then in ironic fashion I sat on the couch for two hours while watching The Biggest Loser. At least I got in some activity at work today!
Now, here I am prepping for my Weight Watchers meeting tomorrow and it’s got me thinking about where my life has taken me the past 3 years. It’s been a pretty amazing journey and I’m happy to say that it’s nowhere near over.
I’ve discovered so much about myself. For instance, I’m an extrovert. I didn’t know that 3 years ago. I love to cook healthy. Developing a healthy body starts with your mind. When I started to lose weight 3 years ago it never occurred to me that your mind needs to be in partnership with your body. Once my mind snapped to it, then the rest followed in suit. Such a great feeling!
P.S. I am still well aware that I need to share my Resolutions still. However, for January I decided no more Diet Coke and so far … so good! I’m a week strong!
Life is a ride. Simple phrase that explains so much.
I graduated from college with my Masters. Celebrated Christmas with my family and J’s family. Traveled over 8 hours in a car in less than 36 hours. Rang in the New Year with J and some great friends. Started living on my own again. survived what felt like a plague that lasted way too long.
I plan on sharing my New Year’s Resolutions with you in the next few days and to blog a bit more consistently in 2013.
Here’s to hoping and trying to develop better habits, spend more time laughing and less time stressing this year.
