A Very Hectic Week *Could* Hinder Weight Loss...

So... for those of you who know me, and talk to me often, you know I've had a hectic week! It all started a little over a week and a half ago with some "out of character" experiences... I won't go into those much as that was just the tip of the iceberg...


Last Friday night (2/20) we had some friends come in town with their doggy and 7.5 yr old daughter. They are friends of my husband's from growing up, and we were glad to have them... We decided on Saturday morning to go to the dog park where my dog got bit by a pit bull. That is the short part of the story - it's not worth going into too much more detail... the owner's wouldn't admit who they were or help get the dog off our dog which was really stressful - I was hyperventilating, and our friends daughter was totally distraught. We took our pup to the vet and they had to repair his back leg muscle... he's been living with a cone on his head and a 4 inch stitched up area with antibiotics, pain meds, and now an anti-inflamatory because the stitches got infected mid week... so needless to say, ice cream was my friend and exercise was not...


Somehow I still managed to lose 1.8 lbs this week so I'll take it and say I'm very thankful. I wasn't expecting that...


But more importantly, I need to figure out how not to rely on food when I'm totally wacked out and stressed.


Here's a pic of my baby - it's not the close up, because that wouldn't be friendly for a "food" blog... but some of you may want to see.

So sorry about your dog! We stopped bringing our dog to the dog park because of these incidents. The dogs rarely "play"; it is actually an environment that sets them up to try to fight for dominance (especially if it's a penned in area). We decided it wasn't worth taking the chance any more, so we found a huge wooded park where we can walk our dog offleash and he is so much happier! He runs through the fields and has a blast! Hope your guy gets better soon!
