Sorry I haven’t posted my progress here on HealthyChoicesInLife.com for a few days now, but my wife just finished her first year of post graduate work at USC so we celebrated that accomplishment for two days, and then she packed and left to visit her family in Colombia for the next three weeks. She has only been gone a day and I already miss my little lobster – thank God for Skype
Nevertheless, our two dogs are still here at home and that they need attention. Since mommy will not be taking Akira to search and rescue training for the next three weeks, I have to figure out a way to get them tired on a daily basis. Akira especially gets aggravated and starts barking excessively when she feels as though she’s not being paid attention to enough, so I need to try and prevent that from happening.
Therefore this morning I woke up at 5am and took both of them on a run for an hour around our neighborhood. Last night I was dreading waking up 45 minutes earlier than usual, but once I got out of bed this morning and got dressed, I was looking forward to the run. It has been a very LONG time since I worked out in the morning before work and it was an invigorating experience. So long that I can’t even remember the last time that I had done that. Nice way to kick start the metabolism and get my body burning calories right at the start of the day.
