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!!

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 !

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!!

I am about to embark on a new journey in an attempt to get healthy. Have you heard of Juice Plus? If not take a moment to read about it. It has great reviews and lots of science behind it. This is not a meal replacement diet. It is a jumpstart for me to start eating properly and getting the right nutritional needs. I am optimistic and excited to begin, I want to be comfortable in my own skin again, I want to be healthy. I will keep you all updated as to my progress. Wish me luck!

|Lync, Ash and Kort yesterday during our walk|
Not much has been happening since my last post. I signed Lync up for some obedience classes focusing on heeling. We are getting there slowly, there is a lot of room for improvement however especially when cutting back on the treats. Lync works much harder when the treats are involved .
Work is going really well, I am actually surprised I am enjoying grooming again. I am still working part time, 30 hours a week, but that suits me just fine.
The dogs are doing well, the horrible cold snap we had has finally passed. We had days of -40-45 C on a few days and I couldn't get the dogs out even to exercise them. With the warmer weather now we have been getting out for some fun runs 4 times a week.
Tomorrow I am taking Kort to work to bath and groom him, I had Ash done last week. I love this perk of working at a grooming shop, sure saves on the mess in the house.
That's about all for now!

Today we are having a blizzard, it is the perfect day to stay inside, take down Christmas and just chill with the dogs. Brad is working nights so he is fast asleep.
I am glad to see 2016 go, it had a lot of downs, the worst being my sweet sister passing away in April, my heart still hurts so bad, but it did have some ups as well. I finally found a job, one I have now been at for 6 months, grooming, I never thought I would do it again but here I am. I guess if you are good at something you shouldn't fight it, grooming is my calling I suppose. I am not sure how long I will be able to continue, it' not an easy job, but I will continue as long as I can, at least until Brad and I are more financially secure.
I have some goals for this year, one being trying for Lync's CD title. I need to get back into classes, I'm putting those off until Spring, I just don't like going out in the winter, especially at night. I will also get back into tracking with Ash in the Spring hopefully, maybe even take Kort out as well.
I hope this year brings nothing but happiness to you and yours, Happy New Year!
