Decisions, Decisions

So after talking it over at length with my sister, we have decided to give Weight Watchers a go.

We will start when I return from the out of town wedding we are attending in Maui and can really focus.

From now until then, I will continue practicing new habits. The first one was increasing my water intake, which I have been doing every day. I have added lemon and mint, cucumber and mint and today it will be lemon and ginger.

Those combinations work for me.. anyone else have some good combinations? My new habit is eating breakfast.. UGHHHH again... I have done this before and it is the HARDEST one for me.

Speaking of which.. I must go and prepare my healthy breakfast of Dannon light and fit yogurt, homemade granola, and a banana.. so far, it is what I can tolerate.

Anyone else have breakfast ideas???

Basset Update

I went to visit Hurley yesterday with the hubby. He is doing fairly well so far, and this morning the doc called and said he can stand and has voluntary movement in both back legs. This is excellent news. Although he is not "correcting" yet, the vet said not to worry, he is progressing normally and is doing exactly as they would want him to and expect him to.

Because of his cuteness factor

r, the vet also told me that he is getting a massive amount of attention. He laughed and said that every time he walks by Hurley's enclosure, there is a tech in with him loving on him. That makes me happy and they said we can bring his stuffed animals and rope toy in for him. We hope to have him home by Friday, as long as he is going potty by himself and standing and walking with help, that may just happen.

Mcgyver has built him an enclosure in the living room and I will take some pics of that later today. It will be a long recovery, but we are very optimistic.

The incision is pretty long, and it was a little bit of a shock to see him all shaved with all the staples, but he seems to be comfortable.. of course he had the pain patch on still yesterday.

Today, he is on all oral meds and is doing well. I will be visiting today after class, and will take a couple more pics. I hope he will be a bit more happy today than he was yesterday.

Drinking water is good, but broken Basset Hounds are not

I started out Monday with water, and I did drink a good amount last night, however, I did not finish all of the water today.

Our Basset hound herniated a disk yesterday and is in surgery right now. I will post later in the week about weight stuff and an update.

Drink that water!!!
