Dang, it’s been a hot minute since I’ve done this post. I usually don’t know what day it is anymore, but I just checked for y’all in order to write this haha.
If you’re not aware, this is a post I do where I write three positive things that happened this week. I hope y’all enjoy it.
1. Visiting My Family And My Puppy
1. As some of y’all may know I was having a little trouble getting home. I finally managed to make it home without any problems though. As y’all may also know my puppy had a stroke maybe 3 weeks ago and is still recovering. So, I was very happy to finally get to see her. It broke my heart to see her so…weak.
So, I pretty much just took care of her while I was there. I’m sure my sister enjoyed the break since she’s been watching her. If you’re wondering just how she’s doing she’s not able to move her back legs at all…yet. She is able to roll herself over and scoot around the house if she really feels like it. She pretty much keeps her movement to lifting her head up when she hears something, rolling over, or scooting. That’s about it. However, it’s all progress because, in the beginning, she couldn’t move anything. She has lost weight but is starting to gain it back now. I was surprised to see how much muscle she lost as well. Her back legs are nothing but skin and bone. It broke my heart to see her like that. I didn’t like leaving her alone so I would just sit out in the living room area and read a book. She’s my baby though and cleaning up after her, getting her food, and sitting her up to drink water…well it didn’t bother me at all. I would do anything to help her and I didn’t mind it one bit. I wish I was there all the time to take care of my baby girl but there’s nothing I can do about that. She’s in good hands anyway.
I didn’t really do much while I was there. My sister and I had our little coffee date which is what we always do. I also spent way too much money on things I don’t need which I do a lot too haha. I’m working on it though.
My parents were busy while I was there so I didn’t really see them. That was kinda upsetting but it’s all good. I’ll hopefully see my dad again in a couple days if someone takes my shift at work. Fingers crossed anyway.
2. I managed to finish three books this week. I think going home actually kind of helped me. It was kind of relaxing and familiar I guess. I didn’t really have much else to do since watching tv would require me to leave my puppy. So, reading was a good way to be productive and to stay near my puppy. Win-win. I’m hoping I can keep this reading up haha. Granted two of the books were poetry books…so they’re relatively quick reads. Still proud of myself though!
3. Working Out
3. I managed to keep my workout routine even while I was home. I was pretty happy about that because it can be easy to become lazy about working out when you change things up like that. If that made any sense. I was gonna say when you change your schedule but I don’t have much of one, to begin with, haha. Anyway, I’ve been seeing the improvements I’ve made over this past month and I’m proud of myself. They’re small improvements but I know they’ll only get better over time.
I worked out every day this week so today is gonna be a rest day. I’m still so happy with myself and how far I’ve come. I just need to keep at it. I enjoy working out though. Especially since no one thinks I have any for of strength it’s kinda funny surprising them. I have a long way to go to be able to reach my goal, but I know I’ll reach it. 😀
I hope y’all enjoyed this post because I just realized I usually do this post on a Sunday. I was a little tired when I wrote this last night haha.
