Let’s talk about something else…

Well I am over talking about the plan. It was a learning experience for me and I will continue to use this as a guide to eating for my body. I do have to say though that I would highly recommend everyone trying it out at least once. Nearly everyone in my office tried it with different levels of weight loss. But everyone thinks it helped them understand what food does to each person on an individual basis.

Let’s talk about something else:

It’s the last day of February and I have a headache. I’ve been stressing about work and finances a bit. I work really hard but so far have not seen the rewards. I am in the sales industry and work on commission and it can be hard to ramp up and see consistent paychecks. First world problems I know, but it’s what I am going through at the moment. So instead of dwelling I am trying to focus on the things that don’t stress me out like painting and my hubby and of course the dogs.

My dogs:

Oliver is blind, we had to remove his eyes last year due to cataracts that turned into ulcers and poor baby was in pain so we made the decision. I’ve had Oliver since he was just wee and now he’s almost 10 years old. Jazmine was a rescue and I got her about 6 months after Oliver and she’ll be 10 this summer. Needless to say they are my babies and have been with me through many things. Breakups, leaving everything in Ontario and driving across the country to start a new life in Alberta and then some.

Oliver has been incredible lately, he has been finding his way upstairs on his own. I was calling out for him and see him making his way back downstairs like he could see every step. He runs fearlessly through the park when we take him out. We take him when no one is there, other dogs don’t always bother him but I’d rather not have the hassle. He’s a walking, breathing reason that nothing I’m going through means I need to quit or stop. He’s truly an inspiration!

Jazmine is a little sweetheart, she loves everyone, no matter what. She actually is a bit crazy also, she’ll watch tv and barks at any animal she sees. She especially hates the trip advisor owl, the sound he makes at the beginning of each commercial sets her off even if she’s not watching. But whenever I’m sick or feeling down she’ll never leave my side, always there for me always snuggling.

Here are a couple pictures of my babies!
