A New Time Consumer

I am such a SUCKER! for all things small and pitiful.  Some horrible and mean person dropped off a litter of pups, one of them made it to my house and the rest ended up down the road at a neighbors home. We don't have a dog, with Jacob having cp and balance issues he has always been scared of them, but on Saturday he decides when he looks at this tick and flea infested, hot spots all over its little body, starved- to- death puppy, "Momma, I think we need to keep him." He is a mongrel and looks chow/shepard mix. Lord. Help. Me. So I started the process of getting rid of the ticks and fleas and teaching him how to eat, he evidently wasn't even weaned yet, and I must say he has taken to food. Jacob named him "Little Bear" but I imagine he isn't going to be little for very long and will just end up "Bear."

On the food front I continue to eat low carb as I can (I need to get lower!) and doing my best to stay away from sweets. Breakfast was a scrambled egg with bacon and little shredded cheese and had me a big salad with baked chicken for lunch:

 It is an adjustment to eat this way when I crave carbs so much, but I am learning and trying to do right. When I say crave carbs, I mean the processed ones, and that is what I am trying to stay away from as much as possible. (It is so hard!!)


  1. That is so nice you guys took the dog in! It looks adorable!

    It is hard to stay away from processed food but eventually you get used to it! I find myself wanting the natural and whole foods now if I eat out too much (when I travel)

    Have a great Tuesday!

  2. I'm capitalizing this: "AWWWWWWWWW"!!!! Bear is GORGEOUS!!!! Such a lovely new addition to your home. Can't wait to see pictures of his as he grows. Enjoy your day!!!

  3. That dog is so cute, but I agree with you - from the size of his paws, he's going to be a good sized dog when he grows up. I hope he and your son bond beautifully.

  4. I hear ya on the processed carbs foods. I used to LOVE everything salty, crunchy, fatty, greasy, read: yummy. But that stuff is the worst, so good job staying away from it. I can tell you from experience that once you go a little bit without it, you stop craving it! So keep going til you hit that wonderful lil revelation!

  5. Cute! ya know, dog walking is great exercise! lol.
