If you are a pet owner, I am sure you know your pet’s personality inside and out. They have habits and preferences just like people and after five plus years as Sadie’s owners, Ryan and I feel like we have a pretty good grasp on our dog and generally know what to expect.
If Sadie is ever not acting crazy, Ryan and I poke her and try to figure out what’s going on because that is just not normal!
We also know her greeting tendencies by heart. For example, Sadie always runs to greet us at the door with a toy in her mouth except for when we arrive home from the gym in the morning. She knows our weekday morning routine and stays in bed until after our workout. Then, when we walk through the door, she waits for us to come love on her and wiggles around on the bed with her tail wagging because she knows it’s time for her walk.
So that’s our routine every morning: Wake up, work out, come home and love on Sadie in our bed.
Well, this morning I went into our room to greet Sadie and she wasn’t there! In the two years we have lived in our house in Ocala this has never happened. Ryan looked at me and said, “Where is she?” We called for her and she didn’t come running which was really weird.
I knew there was no way she got out, so I didn’t spiral into freak out mode, but I was quite concerned and quickly searched the house with Ryan. And then there she was! Tucked under the pile of sheets I stripped off the guest room bed after my sister and her fiancé stayed with us last week.
Sadie loves Leslie and Ross and apparently felt the need to feel close to them this morning and play a little Halloween trick on us. What a stinker.
Today’s workout was a great one thanks to the Nike Training Club app. I did the advanced endurance master workout from the Get Strong workout category and it was another butt-kicker.
I am so in love with this app, I can’t even begin to thank you guys enough for recommending it to me! It takes all of the thought out of planning a tough workout and is perfect for days when I just want to follow a program and still be entertained and leave the gym feeling accomplished. Yes!
I can’t wait to try the all-veg smoothie. It looks kind of funky, but calls for half of an avocado, so I bet it’s creamy. I’m intrigued!
After looking at pictures of smoothies, a craving ignited and I decided to whip up a smoothie for breakfast.
Can you tell lots of blueberries were used in that bad boy?
In the mix:
- 1 cup frozen blueberries
- 1/2 cup frozen strawberries
- 1 1/2 tablespoon almond butter
- 1 scoop chocolate protein powder
- 1 handful fresh spinach
- Enough almond milk to get everything moving
Off to work! I need to figure out an idea for a Halloween costume FAST!
Question of the Morning
- Has your pet ever freaked you out by acting differently or by deviating from their usual routine in some way?
