This week for Show and Tell, I am showing off two things. One is obvious. I am showing off my new space. I used to be in another space, but now I am here. I think it will be better for me, over all. All my stuff is in one place. Much more convenient.
The other part of my show and tell is a brag. People who have children can brag about their children. I have big dogs, so I brag about my big dogs. I recently finished a Beginner II Obedience class with Gertrude, our female Great Dane. I knew she was smart, so I was not too surprised when she got this at the end of the class:
I am so proud. I have an intelligent dog. The class made me realize how much training I was doing with her. A lot of the stuff they wanted me to teach her, she mostly knew. It also made me realize that she is really smart. We are signed up for a Foundations of Agility class during the next session. It starts this Wednesday. I think she will enjoy the agility a whole lot better than the straight obedience stuff. The agility also appeals to me a bit more. I think that is important. If the trainer is not interested, I think the dog can sense it.
In other news, I am wiped out today because I started my period. At the moment, I am sitting in my yellow room, waiting for my Midol to kick in. I hope it kicks in soon. I am debating starting to track temps again this cycle. That way I have some data for when the RE gets back from vacation. I can also see how my cycles are doing.
I need to get back on the wagon with Weight Watchers. It really works for us, but we have not been tracking our food lately. Hubby and I both do it online, so we really do not have much of an excuse. Just lazy, really. This week we both said we would start again. So we will. I did my weekly shopping today. Just in case you are wondering, here is our weekly plan for dinners. We do not specify days, because you never know how we will feel once we both get home.
1. Turkey bratwurst/lowfat chips/fruit or veggie
2. Whole wheat pasta with roasted tomato sauce/salad
3. Grilled chicken/roasted red potatoes
4. seafood (steamed shrimp for me, broiled salmon for Hubby)/corn on the cob
6. Pizza (I know, heavy on the points, but we love pizza, have to have it!)
7. Dinner out
Things I need to work on:
I think I really need to work on portion sizes this week. I cannot eat as much as Hubby and lose weight. I also need to try to drink all of my water quota this week. I am really bad about drinking at work. I cannot drink water while working in the OR, so I need to drink it at lunch and when I get home. I also wanted to try to do better working out. I discovered jogging works for me. It is quick, convenient, and I can do it. I have a treadmill at the house, so I have no excuse.
I hope all our US readers had a happy and safe 4th of July!
