Thank you ... Thank you very much!

for all of your wonderful comments!

Sometimes it's just a bit nice to have people reiterate the good voice in your head - you know, the one that tells you 'Yes there is a change' or 'Yes your hard work is paying off - keep up the great work'.

Too many times I have let the bad voice take over and win -Not this time! With my increased awareness of my self sabotaging ways and you guys out there supporting me - I have no chance of letting that bad voice beat me!

It has come to my attention that I have not introduced my 'fur-babies' to you all. I will fix this situation immediately!!

I have two dogs - a dalmation and a chihuahua - Daisy and Zena. Daisy is 10 years old and we have had her since she was a pup with no spots! Zena is a relatively new addition to the family via adoption (We took her in after her previous owners couldn't have any pets in their rental property).

Despite their size difference they are getting along like a house on fire and don't seem to hate on each other, which is very nice.


Zena & Daisy
Aren't they just adorable!!

My 'no excuses' attitude is still alive and kicking - I have walked every night now for the past 2 weeks. I am at the point where I really look forward to walking. I find I am getting stronger which is a good side effect! The kids are loving it too.

I have been a bit slack in regards to doing my Jillian Michaels workout on the Wii. I was hoping to do this 3 times a week but so far am only managing once per week. I will try to improve on this but I am struggling with time. I need to get better at organising everything in my life - baby steps!!!

Until next time .. take care!


  1. Oh my gosh your babies are SO cute!!! Daisy looks like she's smiling! lol Thanks for sharing!

  2. What cutie fur babies you have. And I'm glad you have renewed your no excuses attitude!

  3. I walk every day too. It is the foundation of my exercise routine. If I can't do it for some reason, I miss it dearly. So does my dog.

  4. Very cute furbabies! I am impressed that you are walking every night - it is so easy when the scales are dropping fast to think that you don't need to!

  5. Hi! I just found your blog and was so excited to see all of the lap band blogs in your sidebar. I just started my own a few months ago, come have a look if you would like... I can't wait to read more of yours!
