A thunderstorm made its way through Ocala around 3 a.m. and had Sadie in a tizzy. Storms never used to bother her, but within the past couple of months, anytime thunder and lightning roll through Ocala, Sadie gets all huffy and her wiggly little body starts shaking.
My mom previously bought Sadie a Thundershirt to help her deal with her fear of bridges (she starts shaking profusely anytime we drive over a bridge – it’s really weird), so we wrapped her up in her Thundershirt last night to see if it might help with her new thunderstorm anxiety.
It definitely helped a bit, but it still took Sadie a solid hour to calm down. I couldn’t help but think of the dog Marley from the book Marley and Me and how frightened that sweet lab felt every time a storm occurred outside. At least Sadie isn’t destructive when she’s scared. She just gets extra needy, which I didn’t think was possible.
Weekend Circuit Workout
Ryan and I managed to sleep in a bit this morning which was fabulous. We awoke around 8 a.m. and headed to the gym for a Saturday morning workout.
After a brief warm up, I completed three rounds of the above circuit which left me nice and sweaty!
On our way home from the gym, we swung by Publix to pick up some food for the weekend. I bought a fruit and yogurt parfait for breakfast to eat along with some Honey Nut Chex.
I enjoyed my breakfast with a hot cappuccino from Cup O’ the Irish, a local coffee shop in Ocala located across the street from the grocery store.
I’ve heard great things about Cup O’ the Irish and it did not disappoint.
Time to shower! Hope you have a wonderful weekend!
