Day 1: Cat Food Challenge
Day one was rough. I've had major cravings. It doesn't help that I wasn't really prepared on the home-front. We've been putting off grocery shopping because we'll be heading to Children's tomorrow. My day consisted of boiled eggs, larabars, fish, salad (no dressing... BLEGCHH!), more fish, veggies, raw almonds, carrot sticks, and unsweetened applesauce. Yummmm. Not. Anyway, Josh took Mav to the vet today for his check-up, and it looks like he'll be joining me on the Cat Food Diet. He weighed a whopping 130 pounds! Not great for a Rott since they're prone to joint issues. His ideal weight is 100 pounds, so they're running bloodwork to make sure it's not a thyroid issue, and we're cutting back on his food. He needs to exercise, but no one fences their dogs out here, leaving too many opportunities for bad encounters if we were to take him running with us. He'll have to settle for fetch in the backyard!
