No time to add much this morning as I have a busy day ahead.
Good morning and welcome to another week of #April #Accountability #check #in
Here is your #daily #checkin for #Wednesday 5 April 2017.
Yesterday I was had a pre work trip to the vet. I have 2 dogs and neither of them are in good health at the moment. They are both Staffordshire Bull Terriers. The dog (Ripley) is 9 and was diagnosed with lymphoma in November. We didn't expect him to make it to Christmas but he is on a mix of steroids and chemotherapy and is doing OK. The bitch (Roobarb) is 8 and has something wrong with her leg/hip or foot which we are still trying to get to the bottom of.
I visit the vet at least every two weeks in order that we can monitor his weight. Before they were unwell I had often considered fasting them for one day a week and changing them to a raw diet. I would definitely consider it more seriously if I were to have another; with everything I read, it just all makes sense.
Its seems odd to me now, how for 9 years I worried about their diet/weight/exercise far more than my own.
In a way, their ill health has had a positive impact on my health as, no longer able to walk them for 3 hours a day I began jogging.
In other ways, in particularly the frequent toilet trips as a result of the steroids, have been far less positive. As he loses all his hair, I also don't think that I will ever get it out of my clothing and soft furnishings.
When I started this WOE my goal was just 'a day at a time' and it's the same with the dogs. Lets all have the best Wednesday we can!
