First Trial


I had one of my last practises this morning with Lync.  We leave on Friday afternoon for Calgary and Lync's first Obedience Trial!  I am pretty excited even though his heeling didn't go so well today.  This week I will work on changing things up more with heeling and making it more fun for him.  I don't want him to lag continually throughout the off leash heeling.  It will become even more important when we enter Open and ALL the heeling is off leash.
We didn't practise stays today but his recall was nice and his stand for examination was good considering his breeder was the one to examine him .  It would be nice to come home with his CD, I'm not expecting to however as training and being in the trial are two different things.  It's not that I don't think he is ready, it's just that you have to take in account ring nerves and to expect the unexpected!
Wish us luck!

3 months & 2 weeks



It's now been 2 weeks past the 3 month mark on my diet. Things have started to slow down now but I am still pleased with my results so far.  Now that warm weather has arrived I am going to find an aquatic aerobics class to attend, that should boost my metabolism a bit.  I have noticed this month I am struggling more with the desire to snack.  The yummy comfort snacks I used to enjoy, pizza, muffins, bread, all carbohydrates!  But I am pleased to say I have not waivered , I am determined!
The picture above was taken last night.  I am no where near my end goal, however, I am seeing a big difference from 3 months ago, yay me!!

3 Months

This past Friday I hit the 3 month mark of my weight loss journey.  So far it has been easy, I had 1 cheat night however.  Brad and I went out for lunch and I had a burger, then we went for ice cream, otherwise I have not cheated at all.  Of course I would love to see the weight come off faster but I am being patient.  It is hard also as I made the decision to NOT weigh myself at all so I can't see the results.  I do know my clothes are looser and I have more stamina. So, I will continue to plug away at it, slow and steady .  One day I may even join a gym !

First Title


Yesterday I travelled to Pincher Creek for a Herding Instinct test with Ash.  He passed with flying colours and I was very proud of him !

1 month

Today is 1 month since I started on my weight loss journey!  I can't say it has flown by but it has been pretty easy to stick to, I am very committed this time.  I am not weighing myself so I don't know if or how much weight I have lost.  I did take measurements on the first day and again yesterday.  I am thrilled to say I have lost 2" from my chest and hips so yeah me!!  I am hoping to get comfortable enough to eventually get into some sort of fitness class.  I am not comfortable enough to go right now however.
Here's to starting my 2nd month!!
