Quick Update

I know I haven't been around much the past couple of weeks, but things have just been a bit crazy for us lately. I just wanted to do a quick check-in t let you guys know things are going well. I am still following the 17DD. I am now in the first cycle of my second round. I am still consistently losing, and I am very excited. Most of my losses are just 1lb a week, but I am thrilled with the progress. I am trying to exercise 4 days a week. Two run days, two zumba days, and some strength thrown in for good measure. Hopefully I will be returning to my regular schedule soon!

I also wanted to say hi to my new readers! So glad to have you here!

Three Things Thursday

1. I had a really nice birthday. We kept everything very low key and it was nice. My birthday was Monday, but we celebrated on Saturday.  Tommy and I went antiquing (kind of a dud) and then out to dinner. We very seldom eat out, so this was a huge treat! I had a petite steak and crab legs with steamed veggies as my side. It was a splurge, but I savored every bite. Tommy said I was even dancing a bit in my chair...haha! We also met with a lady that is part of a dog rescue group. She was very nice. And Tommy and I are tossing around the idea of dog fostering. But I am not sure we are completely ready for that yet.

2. I haven't gotten back into the swing of working out this week. I took last Friday and Monday off work and attended Zumba classes Fri, Sat, and Monday. But my motivation to get into the gym during the evenings this week has been ZERO. I need to be training for Spring 5ks.

3.  I have another doctor's appointment next Wednesday. Tachycardia and Thyroid check. I am always so anxious about it. keeping fingers crossed that everything checks out.

Happy Valentine's Day

Happy Valentine's Day guys. Hope you are receiving lots of love from the ones that love you most.

I just wanted to say thank you for all your kindness during the loss of our sweet Humphrey. We are still grieving, adjusting, and leaning on each other during this time of change. I have just been in awe of the kindness we have received. Emails, txts, phone calls, and cards. One of our friends even made a donation in our name to a local shelter. Kindness and love is just so amazing...and I hope I can pass that kindness forward to other people.

I am in the process of trying to catch up on your blogs...I have missed reading about your journeys and lives.

Our Sweet Baby Boy...

Yesterday  afternoon our sweet baby boy Humphrey passed away. Tommy and I are still in shock over the events of the last 24 hrs. He was an amazing dog...our child...and our hearts are broken. The quiet of our home hurts so bad... without his presence. Please say a prayer for us. I probably won't be around much the next few days.
*hoping there is lots of "Saturday food" in doggy heaven*
