Ever since Bennie was a puppy (well, I adopted him at a year old), I have always gone to the gym in the morning. The first couple days I had him, he cried and was worried that I left. But he pretty quickly figured out that if he just stayed in bed, I would come home. So usually, he doesn’t even really wake up when I leave for the gym.
BUT – The last month or so, Bennie has been coming down stairs when I am getting ready to leave for my workout. He leans on my legs and looks really sad, so I have been giving him a dog treat before I leave.
I told my mom about this and she told me that was what she did for Bennie when she was watching him for me while I was in Peru! Haha! So he figured that out and totally trained me to give him a cookie before I leave for the gym. And I am gladly trainable for Bennie The Dog. Cracks me up! I am sure that if he were a human child, this is the kind of behavior you should not give into.
You need to try the Gu Stroopwafels if you haven’t yet. I like it for longer workouts like a 10 mile tempo immediately followed by lifting weights.
I am pretty addicted to this song – I heard it from the TV show Suits, which is one of my favorites.
After last weekending of playing Exploding Kittens, I am addicted all over again. If you haven’t tried this game – DO IT NOW. I just got the Not Safe For Work edition, and I’m pretty excited about it.
Lately I’m loving pumpkin seeds and sugar free chocolate chips on my peanut butter banana toast in the morning. Pumpkin seeds are high in iron, and the crunch is awesome. I get the Lily’s chocolate chips from whole foods.
