The ups and downs.

Monday, September 01, 2014

The weekend is over already and I have been in a slump with all that's going on with the rabbit. I am worried about keeping his wound clean and avoiding infection, I have to go to work tomorrow so it will be a test in efficiency to get him clean and keep him that way and fit that around my work schedule. He is very disabled and needs a lot of attention.

I have had some salty chips and have eaten out of my calorie range and consequently gained about 5 lbs. Why is it so hard to lose and easy to find again? Oh well, my goal is to get better with my routine. Today is the first of September and the 8th will be 6 months since I joined this site.

We had a bit of wild weather last night when a thunderstorm rolled through. We had water in the basement and lost a few limbs off our trees, but I think everyone did. Our loss was not a bad as some others. I raked and picked up sticks this morning. Tomorrow is garbage day and hopefully they will pick up the sticks, then I will mow the yard for my activity.

    Poor Brown Bunny, Hope he improve soon. We had the storms last night but had no damage, but did put Merlin in the garage instead of his kennel. Duke always sleeps under the over hangover the patio. So they were okay. Merlin had a little sore on his hip awhile back and I about paniced , so I know how you feel about Brown Bunny.

3 things for today.

Thank you to all for their kind wishes for my bunny. He is still an injured little guy and it looks pretty gory and sore, but I never underestimate an animal's will to live.

I am going to eat lighter today. Drink water, and go for a walk. Three simple things, not necessarily in that order.

    You can get all three of those things done and have lots of time to encourage Brown Bunny to get better.

Stress = Overeating

Saturday, August 30, 2014

It's been a rough 24 hours.

After work yesterday, I was bringing my disabled rabbit, Big Brown, indoors and saw a wet patch on his hind end. I looked and it was a huge mess of maggots and eggs. This condition is known as Fly Strike and it can be fatal to bunnies. I washed him for at least 3 hours with Dawn dish soap and picked them off with tweezers. I was up until 3:30am. It was awful.

I really thought I would have to put him down, but I let him go through the night and this morning he was doing ok. I did find a few more maggots on him but I think I have got it under control. He is on antibiotics and I have him setup where I can keep an eye on him.

In other news. The stress and upsetting nature of what's going on has made me think it's ok to eat whatever I want. I had a footlong sub last night for supper and a whole frozen pizza today for an early supper. I am definitely over on my calories, and I did gain a pound, but it will go away again soon enough. I will have to really think about why stressful situations make me think I deserve a pass on my food intake. But not right now. I'm way to tired for heavy thinking. Plus I have chores to do.

Beware, Fly Strike can affect most animals, including humans. I had never heard of it before yesterday and I hope I never encounter it again!

  I hope both you and the bunny will be able to enjoy the rest of the Labor Day weekend. When I'm stressed, the first thing I think of is food, because it comforts me. Obviously there are better ways to get that same feeling. Just chill for a bit, and you'll be fine.

I would totally do that.

Yesterday's walk was super brisk and I didn't have any trouble keeping up the pace. 51 minutes to go 3 miles which is about 17 minutes per mile. My idiot boyfriend thinks I should be able to walk a mile in 10 minutes. His reasoning is that the world record for running a mile is 4 minutes. I hate how he says stupid crap like that and undermines my efforts. I'm pretty sure I am going to spit in his drink.

  You're walking a good clip. Keep up the great work.

    Be proud of your 17-minute mile! Even if it never becomes a 10-minute mile, it's still getting you one step closer to your goals.

    Dare him to walk along with you and maybe he will shut up and let you set your own pace.

    Tell him to talk to you when he walks a 10-minute mile. Don't listen to him. Be proud of your 17-minute mile! I'm proud of you.

Keep moving forward!

You know my co-worker brings treats all the time, but today her sister brought us some goodies that I couldn't say no to. Scotcheroos. I'm sure you understand.

So I indulged a little bit, I enjoyed 2 bars and every delicious calorie. I will have to just trim back my evening meal and definitely go for a walk. Just the walk alone should burn off most of the calories from the treats.

  You didn't turn the treat into a reason to eat anything you would like so good for you!!!

    I had to look that up, had never heard of it till I saw the recipe. I've had them before, just never knew what they were called.

Good for you enjoying an indulgence wisely!
