The Bad news is that I can't seem to get over the ugly news.
Now for the ugly...my friend has two Yorkie's that had puppies about 11 weeks ago. She had 4 boys and 1 girl, but one of the boys died a couple of days after it was born. I really love puppies so I went over there to visit the 3 boys and 1 girl quite a bit and thought long and hard about buying the girl puppy. I want to wait until I'm out of my apartment though, so I decided not to get here. But, since I love playing with all the babies I would go sit with them when they were trying to sell them. They did sell the girl (right away!), but the three boys just weren't selling at all. So I had lots and lots of time to play with them and bond. The one with the blue collar hardly ever listens and does whatever he feels like, but he's all cute and rolly-polly and is sweet as pie when he's ready for a nap. The one with the red collar will play with you and listens and likes to run around and make friends. The one with the black collar is super laid back and sweet and everyone's favorite. He just wants you to hold him and love on him. Well I got a text message last night from my friend saying that her boy dog (the dad) killed the black collar baby. I just started bawling. It's so sad because he was the sweetest little puppy and everyone's favorite (not that the other two weren't as important, but this one was the littlest and probably couldn't even fight back). I guess the two boys left are separated from the parents, but I'm just so sad over this. He wasn't even my dog, but I played with him enough that he really made an impression on me. I'm such an animal lover and I can't really handle things like that. I wish I didn't know and they just told me they sold him to a good family. I know that I'm an adult and need to be able to deal with the truth, but if it involves animals, I just turn into a child and cry and cry. I really hope the other two sell soon and go to good homes. I would take one, but I don't want two boys because I'm afraid they wouldn't get along. It really, really sucks...

He's beyond the cutest little puppy, but last night he kept hearing noises and then barking and growling. I had gotten to sleep in yesterday so I wasn't that tired when I needed to go to bed and by the time I got tired, he kept me up for hours with all his noise making. I love him to death though and I know he was just trying to protect me. It's cute normally, but last night I was at my wits end. Hence the being sleepy this morning.
Today I go to the dentist for the first time in YEARS. I haven't been since my junior year of college because I had trouble finding a time getting in to the office with my class schedule and then my appendix ruptured and I've dealing with complications of that for the past 2 years. To say the least, it hasn't really been a priority. However, I finally made an appointment and I go in today! I'm pretty excited about it, which I know is weird, but I tend to be very OCD sometimes. I like everything to be in it's place and on schedule and I've been feeling MAJOR guilt for not getting in there. Now, I'll go and schedule another cleaning for 6 months from now and be right on track! Please don't make fun of me!
I like to go grocery shopping with coupons, but I've realized that most of these coupons are for things that I really shouldn't eat-pizza, taquitos, ice cream, etc. So I made the decision yesterday to not buy any of this crap when I grocery shop from now I on. I'm committed to only purchasing relatively healthy items and planning out my meals. Only on OCCASION will I allow myself to purchase frozen yogurt or pizza. If it's not in the house, then I can't eat it!

I don't necessarily think that it's bad to drink things other than water every once in awhile, but I'm trying to create a habit. I've heard that if you do something for 30 days, it then becomes habit and that would be great! I actually think that I do pretty good with drinking primarily water, but I might get surprised and find this is a tad bit more difficult than I expected. I do know that one of the biggest challenges is going to be when I get tired at work. I always just go downstairs and get a cappuchino to give myself a little pick me up to get through to lunch. I'm not sure what I'll do now, but it'll be nice to have the challenge. I'll keep you updated each day on how I'm doing! In other news...I've decided to stop taking all medicine for the pain in my side since I go back to the doctor on the 6th for an ultrasound. That seemed like a good idea while I was still under the influence of pain meds, but I'm definitely hurting this morning. I really hope they figure this out!

I most certaintly do. One of my good friends is having marital issues and moved out of her big home into a tiny little apartment. It's much smaller than my own apartment and in an older complex so I wasn't expecting much when I went over there for dinner the other night. Much to my surprise, it was amazing. She had turned this shabby maybe 600 sq. ft. apartment into a place that I wanted to stay at and not leave. All of sudden I wanted to live at the same place, but I logically know that it wouldn't solve my problem. See my apartment is much bigger, I've had much more time to decorate (she's only been in her apartment for a couple of days), I have more money I can spend to decorate, etc. It doesn't matter though because as much as I seem to spend, it just doesn't have the same feel. I have lots of pictures and candles and expensive bedding, but it just doesn't flow. It feels disjointed and I'm beginning to think I just don't have that talent and will have to pay someone. My quest for perfection isn't just with my home, though. I also want to be a good cook and host dinner parties and baby showers, and bachelorette parties, etc. I just have this strange desire to do all those kinds of things, which is sort of weird since I was raised to be so independent. I'm all for women being independent and taking care of themselves, but I still see myself being equally happy being a stay at home mom, cooking, cleaning, and hosting parties. It's sort of 1950's. Anyway, I'm sure I'll find a balance one way or another. I'm actually off to text my talented decorating friend and see if she wants to spend her weekend helping me turn my apartment from blah into...gorgeous!!!

Today is a yoga day and I'm super excited! They are so much easier than pilates days and provide a good break.
Well I can't think of much to say today...

Back to the whole inspired thing. I'm feeling that way because it's just absolutely awesome to read blogs of other women that are my age and going through the same things in life. It seems that several people are newly single or are struggling with friendships and seeing how they've gotten through things or at least that they're in the same place right now really helps. And it's easy to find other bloggers that are trying to get in shape and be healthy. At least I can always have some place to go when I'm needing extra motivation.
When it comes to weight loss I've been thinking of some new things to try...taking a picture daily (I tried to do it once a week and never remembered), personalizing this blog with pictures, and weight loss tickers, etc. However, I'm really leaning towards keeping this blog as private (well at least when it comes to my identity) as possible right now. I think it allows me to be more free with my words and not worry that someone I work with or know in real life is reading my thoughts without my knowledge.
I did start day 1 of my pilates/yoga everyday for a month goal. It's part of my 101 in 1001 days list so I just need to keep it up until July 3rd and that will be one more thing I can cross off (that's the best part-getting my favorite pen and drawing a line through it) and hopefully it will also have made some awesome changes in my body. I did pilates last night, so I'll probably do yoga tonight to switch it up. Plus yoga is easier on my body and with my side hurting me so much lately, I don't want to do anything to make it even worse.
My goals for today:
- Write in my paper journal
- Stick to my food plan (lean cuisine for lunch, yogurt, triscuits and laughing cow cheese, cheese ravioli ( a normal portion size and not the whole thing!) and sherbert for dinner.
- Walk the puppy
- Do my yoga video
Have a great day!
