On the upside, I've lost over 30 pounds (thank you, Mr. Bacon), and it would have been so much more if I wasn't also on these damnable birth control pills (only a month and a half left on them, at least!). My doctor says "they don't work that way," but when I'm consuming less than 10 carbs/1400 calories per day and walking 6 miles a day 6 days a week (burning almost 1000 calories a day) but gaining weight for 3 weeks out of the month, then losing 12 pounds in the 7 days I'm not on the hormone pills, I'm inclined to disagree with her.
Anyway, my husband has been joining me and the puppies on our walks for the last couple of weeks, and on Saturday we took a new path down one of the many country roads near our house. On our way back, we passed a pasture with 3 horses in it, who were utterly fascinated with our dogs. It was the cutest, coolest thing I've ever seen!
That's Punkin, who is always brave. Went right up and sniffed them like she'd met a thousand horses.
And the little brown dog is Turtles, who put the "weenie" in "chiweenie." It took him a few minutes to stop freaking out about the giant animals he thought wanted to eat him, but I was so proud of him for getting up the courage to get close to the horses! Although he kept darting back and forth so fast that it was hard to get a good picture of him that wasn't all blurry, lol.
And that's David, petting one of the horses.
It was one of the coolest walks we've ever taken. Next time we'll bring some carrots for the horses, too. Yay, ponies! :D
