OK. Here’s a question. Is it possible to change a habit? You know, something you’re used to doing over and over again? Are there any
dog human trainers out there?
See, now that I’m on the road to creating a svelte self, We’re cutting back on my green bean intake. So that means I have to get used to some new routines.
See that stick in front of me? Now, I love my “stick time” with my peeps. There are certain times of the day when We play stick. Usually. And some surprise times to play stick. We don’t want to change that habit.
We want to change all the eating “just because” habits. See, I usually get a little “night cap” of green beans after Our before-bedtime walk and, well, last night She only gave me TWO GREEN BEANS. Not the little plate that I usually get. AND, to make matters worse, when my food allotment is done for the day, IT’S DONE. She scolds Him for giving me more.
How’s a guy supposed to deal with that? (Me, not Him.)
To be fair, Dr. Elliott told Them not to cut back to near nothing all at once. Do it gradually. OK. They’re doing that, but I’m still hungry and I don’t understand what I’m supposed to do when I’m used to doing something else!!!!!
Any ideas anybody?
What You Learned Today:
- Whew. I don’t think I’m going to mind eating less of my beans, but I do mind that I don’t get what I want when I’m used to getting it.
- How am I supposed to understand that They’re doing all this food adjusting for my own good? I think They’re PUNISHING ME!!!
- What do you do when things change around your house?
- OH….I see where y’all liked yesterday’s post about the Scottie stuff. I’m on the hunt for more…….
