New Pup and Pneumonia

It’s been a LONG, LONG week.

That erky cold and flu-ey thing that has been loitering around in my system for a few week suddenly escalated into proper badness. A scary can’t-breathe, feels-like-drowning badness. A trip to the GP confirmed pneumonia and it’s been a week of trying to stay warm, indoors and sitting/standing upright at all times. Yep, even for sleeping.

I’m starting to pick up now but it’s still pretty rough. I need to get back to work and training clients so will be trying to keep it as easy as I can.

Training has been obviously on the back-burner as lifting when you can’t breathe  (or leave the house) is tricky. Food has been okay but I’ve cut it back a bit as obviously my energy expenditure can’t have been much! I jumped on the scales this morning and my weight is up again. I’m seriously losing my mind about why my body is so freaking irrational about weight loss. I can’t honestly figure out where any gain could have come from but am preparing myself for another sh*tty week at check-in tomorrow and more disappointment from Adam. Ergh 😦

On the upside, we have a new family member:


This is Rome (at the front) and Ollie. Rome is an 8 month old English Springer Spaniel. He was bought by some friends of mine and they LOVED him but the timing and the crazy Springer nature was never great for them. We’d baby-sat him quite a few times to help out and when the idea was floated to re-home him, we were happy to take him in.

It’s going to be a bit of an adjustment. My dog Ollie is 13, super trained and easy to care for. Rome is going to need to start training from scratch and a LOT more exercise. But hey, he’ll be worth it.

So here’s to the last 24hrs before check-in. See you on the flip side!
