    I am so sorry to hear that Petey is gone. I am glad you were able to spoil him rotten for a few more days. <3

    Today, we had to say goodbye to our sweet dog, Petey. These photos don’t show his fun side but my mood is somber. I’ll post some better ones soon. Each day this week, I took him to his favorite spots, indulged him with his favorite treats, and visited all the people he loved. He was quite popular in our neighborhood so there were lots of people to see but we took it slowly. He loved Dr. Williams and the veterinary staff, so he was comfortable and trusted them completely. He was ready and at peace but it’s so sad 😞 —

    When we love deeply, the loss hurts, but I wouldn’t give up the 12 years Petey blessed our lives for anything. Thinking of the many Shape Shifters who lost a pet recently and also those of you who are taking care of sick and aging ones. I hope Buddy enjoys the drive to Houston and the ease of coming and going with no worries about the stairs. 💕

    So sorry for your loss 😓- it's never easy - big hugs💕💕💕💕

    Got you added to the step challenge and asked for your weigh in day to be moved. The March step challenge started on the 26th of Feb, so if you have steps for 26, 27 and 28 Feb, that would be great. Thanks!

    I've been up and down all week.... at least today is lower than yesterday! I had three big losses in a row, so I think my body is adjusting. Hopefully next week will be better.

    Happy Friday, friends! We had another busy week and I haven't had energy/time to focus on my nutrition and sleep so my weight is up slightly again. I've been fairly active still with coaching hockey and lately more walking into work, but my losses will come when I'm able to focus on nutrition and sleep. March is still going to be busy for our family, but things should quiet down in April. Until then, I'll keep active and see what small changes I can easily make.

    Steps:
    2/27 12,773
    2/28 15,469
    3/1 14,874
    3/2 16,922
    @Pupowl I'll keep my step goal at 14K, thank you!

    Thank you! It is a national park called Dwingelderveld. I live very close to it, about 5 minutes biking away from the start point of two walks. If I bike 10 minutes, there is another area with 4 different marked walks. It really is awesome. Nice to hear you enjoy the cards as well.

    Completed my first longish (40 mi) bike ride this past Sunday as part of an event in Houston. The ride went great and I realized I could have done the 60 mile event. Working on making sure I don't go over my calorie goal most days.
