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. When he's with Hubby, he's usually off leash once they are in a safe place away from traffic. Hubby uses a tracking collar, but he needs a leash when they get near roads, or when he needs to make sure that he stays out of certain areas.

I wish we would have had the Release N Run l…

Day 5 Of Overcoming Sugar Addiction

Yes these cookies are STILL here. 
Day 5.. honestly.. I'm still a little in shock that I'm able to type that.  I've never gone 5 days without having some type of sugary sweet. I guess I should say I don't remember the last time that's happened. I'm sure at some point in my life that happened!

Today has been fairly easy. I am still finding myself reaching for things out of habit. I was reaching for a a candy cane which I hardly ever eat. I didn't eat it. I decided if I wanted peppermint I would make some tea. But by the time I got around to making tea, I forgot about it.

The 3pm time is still when I feel myself wanting something sweet. But I'm finding that
apple slices and cheese are pretty tasty. And after dinner - I always wants sweets after dinner. So I've been eating grapefruit or grapes. (And yes I eat the grapefruit without sugar. That's something that I always did.)

I'm also finding that I'm able to listen to my body more than I was able to before. I'm recognizing hunger and when I'm not hungry. Mindless eating is becoming less and less of a habit. I'm sleeping better (this could be due to less caffeine that inadvertently happened while ditching sugar). I'm not sure of the reason that I'm sleeping better other than I know I'm not having night sweats like I did when I was eating sugar.

Emotionally I feel more calm, more level with less highs and lows.

These are words I never really knew if I would be able to type, but day 5 is complete.. on to day 6.
