A mother trying to live a healthy life and be a great example for her young daughter through fitness and healthy eating. The old adage goes "Do as I say, not as I do" but this momma is not just saying it!
My poor Leo went to the vet to get his shots updated and to add insult to injury, came home with orders to lose fifteen pounds. I'm so glad that the vet didn't try to convince me that I would need some special diet dog food because that stuff is expensive! Instead he told me that I can continue to feed him his regular food in the morning and for his evening meal, just give him a can of beans. As I'm sure you can guess, he's really, really excited about it.
But I love this stuff...
Yesterday morning, I wanted to get a workout in and since Leo has some extra pounds to shed too, I decided to take him for a long walk. We went around our neighborhood and he seemed like he still had energy so I decided to keep walking. I think I may have overdone it a little because at the end of the walk, he had really, really slowed down. Our walk ended up being 3.75 miles and while I didn't feel like I had a great workout, Leo was exhausted.
I did weigh myself yesterday and was very pleased with the results. I have lost another two pounds woo! I may need a new belt soon :)
