It’s been almost a year since I announced that I had puppy fever.
My time has finally come!
Isn’t she stunning? She’s temporarily named Remmy. Kevin and I took Boyd over to meet her at her foster mom’s house tonight. Can you believe she was at a kill shelter in New Mexico and was about to be euthanized?? I heard her full story, and she was seriously a day away from it. There’s a group from a shelter here that goes there to rescue dogs from a shelter there when it’s full. They just couldn’t leave Remmy behind! How could they?
She’s amazing!! But she’s so skinny! I can’t wait to bring her home and spoil her rotten. And of course, teach her some better manners than Boyd has. She’s totally house trained which is amazing, and she’s about 1.5 years old.
Still pondering the name…
She hasn’t learned to look at the camera yet, but trust me, it will be one of the first of MANY TRICKS I teach her.
All I really want to talk about is my new dog — we should be able to bring her home before the weekend. As soon as they get us the paper work, and we get it back to them!!! Soooo… I’ll tell you about the less exciting parts of my day.
Instead of my typical egg breakfast, I had some Honey Kix!
Perhaps not the best nutritional choice (I was starving all morning afterwards), but I hadn’t had cereal in forever. Or at least month!! I’ve decided it’s too expensive and, for the most part, has way too much sugar. Plus I am in love with eggs and hot breakfasts like coconut flour oatmeal.
The cereal was good though! So good that I couldn’t resist snacking on it later. Oops! Kix used to be our birthday cereal! We always had a box waiting for us on the morning of our birthday! (Mine is coming up — in case I haven’t reminded you enough yet! September 10!!!!!).
Today’s WOD: I worked out on my back patio this morning. Cranked the Shakira and got sweating! First, I practiced double unders and handstands for about 15 minutes. Then, I completed this little workout:
I used Kevin’s manly 15lb weights for the thrusters and finished in17 minutes. The push ups and thrusters were both really tough for me so I was proud!
So proud that I cried a tear of sweat.
Want to know something that’s not gross???
The guy from 32nd Treat was at our gym today!! Kevin and I ducked in for a half hour of cardio before going to meet my new puppy and we got a treat afterwards. I snatched the Almond Vanilla right away. I love that stuff. Kevin was nice and even gave me the bigger one! By the way, the Almond Vanilla is made from almond milk!! And the rest of the flavors are made with local hormone free milk from local farmers. Nice. We just saw the guy at the race on Saturday. I asked him to please keep following me around town. We got a 15% off card. I see us becoming regulars.
Does THAT thing look like a broccoli floret to you? Gross.
For dinner I had something similar to my 4 Ingredient Buffalo Chicken with Zucchini Pasta. This time with the regular instead of extra spicy buffalo sauce. The broccoli on the side was good because I could dip it in buffalo sauce!!! I spoiled Kevin with buffalo chicken pizza. I let him have it all so there would be leftovers for his lunch tomorrow, but I made him eat some broccoli too!!
P.S. I still love Boyd! He has no clue what’s about to hit him!!!!
Do you eat broccoli stems? Only when disguised in broccoli slaw. That stuff is wonderful.
What do you think I should buy first for my new puppy? Rain boots?
