My Thoughts On The Rad Dog Release N Run Leash

Disclosure of Material Connection: I received a Release N Run Leash for free from Rad Dog in consideration for a gear review. All opinions are mine and honest in nature

If you've been anywhere near me, then you know that Miles is a huge part of our lives. If you haven't met Miles, here is a picture of him when he was just a baby pup. Miles is a Mountain Cur.



Now, he will be 2 in December, and he's still just as adorable. He thinks he's a huge lap dog. He loves to lay on the back of the couch. It's ridiculous, but we love him.




He is my running buddy, but he's also Hubby's hunting dog. This means that he's outside a lot. When I run with him, he's usually on a leash.

#FitFridayConfessions - Breaking Up With The Scale

I When I was restricting calories, the scale became my unit of measure to determine 'progress'. And it became a thorn in my side. 


I would do everything 'right' when it came to working  out and eating my calorie allotment - to step on the scale and I would have gained a pound. After hard workouts or long runs the weight would always be up, and it could take a couple of days before I would see it drop. It was constant fluctuation. And that fluctuation made me obsessed with the number on the scale. 

It was time to break up. And that's exactly what I have done. 

Truthfully, each day is a challenge with becoming a healthier person. Some days I feel good about my progress; others I feel that I bombed. But the reality is that 'this' isn't a quick fix. I don't want the pills, potions or fads. I want to live a healthier life and it's one small step at a time.

  1. Good for you for kicking the scale to the curb. I experience the same fluctuations and they can be so frustrating sometimes. You're so right. One small lifestyle change at a time.

  3. I have made my peace with the scale. I find it is very helpful for keeping me on track in the long run, but from day to day I've learned my own fluctuations and therefore am able to keep perspective.
