I'm the one on the right, obviously.
I completely fell off of the exercise wagon the past couple of weeks. The excuses are lame, but suffice it to say that I definitely need to make getting enough sleep a part of my attempt at healthy living.
I did my 30 Day Shred yesterday and today, though, and I am feeling the burn once again! Luckily I didn't gain any weight back during my hiatus. I guess my metabolism has switched on just enough, and I have been making decent food choices.
Someone else in this house has been having a harder time with food lately. It turns out that poor Jasper is insulin-resistant. Our veterinarian strongly urged us to switch him to a canned-only, low-gluten diet. Although I tried this before a couple of years ago with no luck, I'm giving it a try again.
Jasper is not taking as enthusiastic of an approach. I took the dry food dish away last Wednesday, and he has been begging nonstop since then. He flat-out refuses to eat his very favorite canned food, or any canned food for that matter. I even went out and bought some grocery store canned junk--all of which he refuses to even sniff.
We're currently at a stalemate: Jasper begs and cries all day long, and I break down and give him some dry food at night. As hard as it is to listen to his pathetic meowing, I could probably wait it out until he started eating the canned food out of desperation, but it isn't that simple. I have to make sure he eats something, otherwise his blood sugar could drop too low when I give him his insulin. It's a tricky balance.
Jacob and Lola, on the other hand, are perfectly happy to eat like royalty at every meal.
