DD Tuesday - plans
I'm having a rotten day so far, I have to say :(
Something's wrong with one of my greyhounds (Aleeya) :cry:-- I posted on FB about it (you can find me there, look for Soren in Mississauga/Canada)... anyway, I didn't get much sleep.
7am, helped walk them, maybe got 1hr more, and now I'm SNEEZING AGAIN.
I hope it's just stress.

At 3am, since i was up, I totally had a stress snack (mortadella for 160, 1 slice of cheese for about 100, and 150 of gluten free twig things), . I"m tacking that onto yesterday's UD tally.

I have to take her to our vet at 10am.

So, today, I just don't know. I often don't eat when I'm worried...

B: so far, I've had a fizzy vitamin c and B in water, and a zinc pill.

I'm sorry your having a tough day soren, I hope your doggie is ok and everything checks out at the vet! It's stressful when a baby is sick :(

Today is sweet potatoes and chicken for dinner
almond milk in coffee the rest of the day
THat's the plan as of now anyway!

(ignore me, it's UD for me, but I'm sure glad I popped in over here!)

(((((Soren))))) I will be thinking about you & sweet pup today. I'm so sorry you're worried about her. Has she been ill? I'll try to find you on FB...

Soren - any news on your dog??

Iced coffee

Hope doggie - and you! - are doing okay, Soren.

Tough DD for me today. We had a good business thing happen this morning, and DH wanted to go out to a very late lunch to celebrate, which I expected, so I had not eaten anything all day. We went to Don Pablo's and I had the "Skinny Enchiladas" (465 calories) but I also ate most of the side veggies, about another 100 calories. That puts me over my 500 calories :( and I expect I'll be a little hungry later. I have a gluc gel in the fridge to help with that, and if I have to, I'll make a muffin. If I have a muffin I'll still be around 600 -650 depending on which muffin I decide to make, which is not too bad, but it's the first DD I've gone over since my restart.

Aw thanks you guys! What a day! :hugs: very much appreciated!!!!
Melinda, you found me :) let me know if you see the FB updates, k?

I'll try to make a long day short-- 10:15am vet trip-- physical exam, not much wrong, a bit elevated heart rate and temp.
Showing some signs of pain in the rear quarters, but those tests were inconclusive (they were, I watched).
No neuro signs though, so stroke and internal bleed were ruled out.
they took her to do xrays and draw blood...

11:30-- xrays seem 100% ok (bones of a younger dog...) so they wanted to keep her for IV for a few hours, and we put a rush on the bloodwork.

mid-day-- lots of internet advice-- is it too much road salt (no-- she'd have to literally eat a ton of it)... is it some horrible neuro thing (from a friend who's a vet asst)-- no, very very unlikely... so on.

3:30pm-- they did an extra xray on her neck, b/c she fussed when the vet touched her. I'm like, she's a greyhound, they are total drama queens. It's the NOT yelping you need to worry about... They gave her doggy advil (metacam) and kept her another hour.

4:30-- come and get your dog!!! :D Bloodwork is a-ok. She was a bit (*bit*) dehydrated. The vet got her to eat, liver treats and some canned food with electrolites in it. She walked her around, no neuro signs in watching her walk. Still a bit weak getting up.

4:35 pick up :D she trotted out to see me, and I almost cried in relief. Like a new dog. Maybe excitement to leave was boosting her a bit, but she was soooo much better.

Resting at home now, which is normal, since they sleep 25hrs a day ;)

ok, that was long story long...


L: I took some vitamins and they gave me cramps, so I had 2 slices LC bread (120), 1T lite cream cheese (30) and 1T PB2 (22).

My plan for dinner:
Big serving of 0% greek yogurt (150 or more)
2T sf jam
1T honey

I'll still have under 100cal if I want, though I'm trying for 400 instead of 500 for DDs now.

Flutter 01-22-2013 06:01 PM

Soren, yes, I just went over and looked & tried to post. I'm so relieved for you!!!!! What a day, though!!!!

Demonica 01-22-2013 07:35 PM

Glad to hear about your dog doing better! :hugs:

I finally had a successful DD!:jumpjoy: Course the day isn't completely over yet, but I have no worries.

B- coffee
L- 2 slices bacon, 2 eggs
D- potato soup

Calories were a little higher than I would have liked them to be, but I am just happy to make it through the day without fighting the urge to eat everything in sight.

sorenkkg 01-22-2013 07:50 PM

Wtg demonica!

I finish the day at 409, which i claim as success!

And Aleeya went upstairs to bed, by herself!

Bad day ends well!!!

zipp2play 01-23-2013 06:20 AM
