I Need Some Self Control, Stat!

I am tired of having to confess that I have been eating bad. I am sure you are tired of hearing it, too. I don't know where my self control went but I need some, stat! The summer-like weather has me feeling like I'm on summer vacation from my routines. I haven't followed my exercise plan, I mean really followed it, for a couple months. My dinner plans for the week have been tossed to the side for eating out pizza, wings, calzones, burgers and beers. We have been invited out to join friends and even our teammates (from softball) for beer and food so many times within the past couple weeks. Problem is, we don't say no. Could I eat healthier while I am out to dinner? Yes. Have I been going that route? Absolutely not. Am I going to work on changing this? Definitely. I'll never give up.

In other news, today is a very exciting (and busy) day for us! Topher is coming home to stay! He is 7 weeks old today.

Topher is already in love with my shoes. I haven't missed this part of having a puppy!
Since little Topher is coming home today, I had to finally break the news to our dog, Max, who we have had for over two years. This was his reaction:

Max has just learned that Topher comes home today.
I think that his reaction was a combination of shock and awe. Or, he just really wants to go outside to play. The jury is still out on this one.

Something else that is exciting (yet frightening) is that we got a new air conditioning unit for the first floor of our home. The one that we have had for two years finally quit on us. My husband made a late night run to Lowes last night and bought this new life saver for the very hot weekend we are experiencing. We're exciting that our house is finally below 80 degrees, however, the price tag was a little more than I'd like to admit. Hence, the fright.

$350.00 of pure comfort and happiness.
If I didn't have multiple sclerosis, I probably would have tried to pinch pennies in this area. However, heat really gets to me and causes dreaded flare ups. Stress and heat; my worst enemies in this disease. Speaking of, tomorrow is our Memorial Day Picnic! It's going to be a hot one and of course I am going to have a bit of "fun stress" to go with it. Crossing my fingers for a no-flare-up weekend! Also hoping that I will find my self control some time soon. One thing that I know for sure is that my self control isn't hiding under the last brownie on the tray. I've already checked there ;)
