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!!

1 week in

It's been a week now since I decided to do something about my diet and eat healthy.  I have struggled, not going to lie, but I have not cheated.  I am trying to eat 3 times a day with a couple of snacks in between.  I find the evenings the most difficult, that time after supper and before bedtime is when I am the hungriest.  It sucks.  Hopefully it will get easier as I go along.  I don't ever expect to be this skinny girl, but I do want to be more comfortable, something I am not right now.  I would love to be able to show my own dogs again if I feel like it, Ash anyway , that's if I decide to show him again, still on the fence about that.
Well there you have, 1 week down!

Juice Plus

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!

This and That

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!

January 1 2017



Welcome 2017!

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!
