Meet Huckleberry, whom we call Huck. He’s our new 10 week old Bull Dog / Jack Russell / Lab mix (Bull Jack Lab). He’s a rescue with a few separation anxiety issues. The first 10 weeks of his life were pretty rough.
I don’t know if I could be any more in love with him. The cats are adjusting pretty well. Oprah (top right) thinks she has a new best friend. Bliss (aka Sir Fluffy Butt) is being super dramatic with him, but is slowly coming around. We got him last Sunday and in the last 4 days of having him I’ve been WAY more active. I’m hitting nearly 8k steps a day without working out. (That’s my Feb goal. Don’t judge me.) His breed will be active, which is awesome because it’ll force me to exercise even when I don’t want to. Plus, I’ll have a running buddy. He should max out at about 45lbs. Huck and I have been braving the cold and walking to burn off some of that puppy energy.
Honestly, Huck is meeting that maternal need I have currently. It’s a welcomed feeling and will help with the whole “taking a break” for the next 6 months of so. I opted out of the surgery. I can revisit that idea in 6 months, but right now, I need a break from Dr. Appts, Ultrasounds, shots, and pills. I need to focus on me, my marriage and just being healthy.
I am choosing good. Kevin and I are still choosing good. We are 8 days into the New Year and I’ve stuck to my AM/PM Beauty regimen. I am meal prepping and planning. I am eating healthy and staying active. It’s only 8 days, but it’s 8 days more than I’ve been doing. It’s a refreshing change of pace.
We are 8 days into the New Year and I feel good.
How are you doing with your goals?
