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.

Angry But Determined Today Is The Day

Well today was the day.... it really was..... it was the day that I had mentally circled on the calendar... the new beginning.... the day that I figured out what works for me when it comes to nutrition....

What I didn't expect was for the scale at the Dr's office to reflect that I had gained 8lbs in 5 months... and this is in addition to the previous weight that I had already gained. 132.2... it's a number that I haven't seen except when I was pregnant with my son... and probably in the 3rd trimester at that.

Defeated, frustrated and angry best described me at that moment... but I left the doctor's office
more determined than ever to turn this weight gain around.

In fact, Lil Man and I went to the gym (which was the original plan). But now I was super determined to work off some steam..... and I did.

And I left the gym determined that this time I was going to see the results that I've wanted for the last couple of years.

I'm still not ready to share how I plan to regain control of my nutritional life... only because I want to see what happens in the next couple of weeks... and to see if I have finally found the answer for me.

Because the reality is what works for you may not work for me... and what works for me may not work for you.... we all have to find what works for us as an individual.... but I have reached a point that my weight gain is causing health issues. My blood pressure is high again (something that I have struggled with since I was a teenager). And I'm sure the extra weight isn't helping the joint pain that I experience from time to time.

So that being said.... stay tuned... cause things just got real.
