Tallulah is in season.  I was so looking forward to having puppies again by the end of the year.

BUT... in light of all the stress it would involve IF we sell and end up moving within the next 2 - 4 months, it's just not worth it.

I'm really sad I can't breed her right now, but I am sure that once she's in season again, in 6-7 months, we will be settled and then we can.

Today we have ... another Open Home.  Of course.  Not sure if the weather is going to be nice or not... but I don't really care.  I'm so over it now it just does not matter.
I will get the house all spic and span and just go with the flow.

It will happen eventually I'm sure.

Looking forward to this evening, Steve, Bex and the boys are coming for dinner.  Hmmm... I better get something out of the freezer to feed them with.
I shall be having a shake and some veges.  Yesterday I had a chocolate shake, it wasn't as nice as the coffee or caramel ones I must say.   

Lunch today will be a Vanilla shake.

Right... I better get moving, there's quite a bit to do today before this house is spic n span.


11.24 am:  It was the start of Daylight Saving today.  Seems far too soon!

We are all ready for the Open Home!  I have a fruit loaf cooking in the breadmaker, so the house will smell lovely by 2 pm.

We are going out to kill time... probably just down to the mall.  Lunch out... I shall be having a shake when we get home.

2.47 pm:  And only 3 groups through today's Open Home.  1 was a 'nosey' neighbour, and the other two didn't stay long so I'm not expecting anything from them.

Stew has gone down to the supermarket to get some food for dinner.  Cooked chooks and some salads, I'm not going to cook tonight!  Yaaa.

End of Day: well we have had a lovely dinner and evening with Steve, Bex and the boys.
I even had a small piece of my fruit bread and some salad.  Feel a bit guilty about the bread, but it was only one small piece, so I'm sure I've not done too much damage.

    Are you having two shakes and a meal ? my friend went on optifast for months, you can have the soups or bars instead of the shakes if you want. I am sticking to my 1200 calories and have already lost 1.3 kilos in a few days ! I am a bit hungry along with you....

    Take care


    1. I have lost 3 kilos in 3 days.... so it's working! I'm having 2 shakes, 2 fruit, 2 cups 'free' non-starchy vegetables and 100grms of cheese a day. I am going to get some of the bars this week to try too. Keep up the good work Peta.

  2. Delaying Tallulah having puppies sounds like a good idea - could get complicated when you are on the move. Well done on sticking to your eating plan.

  3. I think you made the right puppy choice! You will have puppies soon enough in your next house! Don't feel guilty about the bread! You need a bit of real food in your body!

  4. Yeah probably would have been a bit too much stress dealing with puppies right now!

  5. Wow the optifast looks like its working I had forgotten about the soups and bars, do you have to drink water too?
