Well – I had success last night with the cupcakes. I planned on having 1 and a cup of coffee, and that is what I stuck to! I really wanted a second one, but it was the start of my September challenge and needed to be on the correct foot. It was a small cupcake, too 😀
No weights this morning as I had to drop off Pixie at the vets at 8 a.m., which is smack in the middle of normal Wednesday weight lifting. So, we decided just to bike to bagels this morning. I’ll do some weights tomorrow instead.
On the way there, we saw some turkeys! I think it was a mom and a few little ones.
Got to our usual place where I had my usual multigrain with maple cream cheese! Yay! It was tasty. I was really hungry.
Lots of work to do today. All the doctors are back from summer vacations, so the work is piling up. Guess that is a good thing 😀
I was excited to try the Chobani pineapple yogurt for lunch.
I opened it up and found that it was fruit on the bottom, which I don’t care for too much (it’s way too sweet for me).
This yogurt really had a tasty pineapple flavor, but it’s too sweet. I mixed in some Kashi Heart to Heart (love).
So, it was a little depressing at the vets office today. I have shown you pictures of Pixie’s giant feet before.
She has 7 toes on the front, but she also has extra toes on the back feet, which is pretty unusual. The problem is that some of them are deformed and the claws grow really funny. The vet recommended I get her declawed to prevent ingrown claws and infection. She also has this problem on the back feet with one toe (yes, she is just weird!). I have been putting it off because I really didn’t want to have her declawed, but I have to put her best future interests ahead of my own feelings. So she was taken in today to have that done. She will be gone for 2 days! Although we will go visit her tomorrow. As if I didn’t feel bad enough, the receptionist handed me a card that Chloe was due for her rabies shot this month. For those of you who don’t know, Chloe was my 18-year-old cat who passed away at the end of March. I realize that I had forgotten to tell them that she had passed away, as I took her to the cremation place which is at a different vet. Of course, they wanted to talk about what happened, as they liked Chloe a lot (she had spent a chunk of time at the office in the last year and a half). I kept my composure there, but started crying as I walked home. That kind of put me in a funk today. Now the house is all empty. I really miss both of the kitties. At least Pixie will be back on Friday. It’s amazing what pets can bring into your life and the hole they leave when they aren’t there. I am not going to fill that with food, however.
Snack with afternoon latte:
Not Raisinettes, but Craisinettes! They are covered in milk chocolate, but I had a coupon and really wanted to try them. Very good. Too good.
Dinner was another grilled wrap. Don’t you love getting into food ruts? LOL.
This one was the usual broccoli, laughing cow, and chicken, but I added a little A1 sauce to it. Yum, but a bit messy.
Did some shopping at Dick’s tonight where I got some new lifting gloves! I’ll take a pic tomorrow of those. I think I might get some running shoes with more of the gift certificate money, but I can’t decide. So, we went out for coffee 😀 Decaf Americano:
I was going to talk about coconut water today, but I will save that for tomorrow since many of you probably didn’t even make it down this far LOL!
Hope all you September challengers are getting off to a great start!
