The Toad and the Blob


Mah bed.



You cannot haz it.

----------------------------------------

In actuality, it's Teddy's bed, but Bob translates "Teddy's bed" as "Bob's bed" -- clearly an easy mistake to make -- and since he's 1/3 again the size of the Toad in spite of being a year younger, his word tends to rule except in such rare moments of generosity as this.

----------------------------------------

In other news, I did Week 3 Day 1 of Couch-to-5K today. Seriously y'all, I must be crazy. I thought Week 2 was bad -- what drugs was I on?

I actually had to lower my speed to 4.5 MPH to make it through this round, but I managed it. Now I only have to repeat twice before all hell (also known as Week 4) breaks loose.

The scale actually cooperated though. I weighed myself around 1:00 p.m. today -- yes, after breakfast, snack, and lunch, AND with some PMSsy bloat to boot -- and the 150 lb. weight was too heavy. I'm seriously psyched, because this is the first time I've seen the 140's since I quit smoking back in March.

Granted, I weigh about 149.999999999999999999999999 because I couldn't get a good weight with the 100 lb. weight and the sliding doohickie either, but still... I'll take it.

I'm tickled for you dear:) And Guard Hound can hold his own when he wants to, even against Blob. He has, after all, had formal training.

Congrats on hitting the 140's!!! That is awesome! Major kudos on keeping with the C25K program. Who cares about your speed?? Just DOING it is hard, the speed will come with time.
And the pets are adorable.

Oh yes, the guard hound training! Hee... :)

Jenn, thanks! The animals are insane, but they provide huge amounts of entertainment.

I just wish my kitchen floor weren't so hideous. It's on the "redecorate this PLEASE" list, but until that time comes I'm trapped in the mid-eightes.

Ick.
