What a productive weekend! It was filled with lots of walking and other physical activity and I accomplished a lot. I battled through some pain and resisted some serious temptation to eat to mask emotions. I didn't let adversity get me down. I laughed, I sang, I was thankful, and focused on what really mattered. I burned calories and I feel great about it!
So, after burning all these calories today, my husband and I made a run to Sonic for some dinner. I ordered a diet cherry limeade, a cheeseburger, and large tater tot. After all, I can eat anything I want... nothing's off limits for me. And I was really hungry. I will admit, I normally would've ordered a medium tot, but I had a lapse of judgement. We sat on our patio and enjoyed this amazing break in the heat wave we've been experiencing! It went from a nasty, humid, 106 degrees yesterday to a nice, cool 84 with a gentle breeze. We had to take advantage of this weather!
So we sat there together, enjoying our dinner. I would eat a tot, then give one to our dog Dixie. She'd then sneak over to my husband to get some more. I'd say she pretty much consumed the equivalent of a medium tot between the two of us!
I was two-thirds of the way through my cheeseburger when it was AMBUSHED! That DAWG put her paws up on the table and snatched my cheeseburger away, covering herself in ketchup. For a while I was aggravated at her. But I've come to see that Dixie was just holding me accountable and helping me to eat better. She helped me go from a whole cheeseburger and large tater tot to two-thirds of a cheeseburger and a medium tot... oh and half the ketchup!
My husband was trying to take a picture of Dixie because she was looking so cute... and that's when the crime occurred. He captured this photo... the only evidence that remains:
The moral of the story: Never trust a border collie with food. They're cunning dogs who know how to get what they want.
Some good advice: It's always wise to look for the best in every situation!
