Maggie has very short legs:
James does not:
(James also has a brain; Maggie does not.)
I always feel so guilty because I under-walk James because Maggie doesnâ€™t really enjoy walks. Not all dachshunds are as lazy as Maggie â€“ but trust me, Maggie prefers the couch. Iâ€™ve been trying to make an effort to walk James solo more often so we can go faster and further.
Tonight, I had to return two library books so I took James on a 25-minute stroll (about 1.75 miles) to the library. I think he enjoyed himself! I still feel bad leaving Maggie home alone, though. 🙁
Earlier this afternoon, I snacked on a fruit platter, which included a pear and strawberries:
Plus a generous scoop of Justinâ€™s Maple Almond Butter, which is amazing and worth every penny.
Dinner was pretty veggie-centric:
In my sammie was grilled mushrooms and zucchini plus a huge glob of ketchup. The bread was two servings (about 300 calories) of this wonderful whole wheat naan bread:
And on the side, I had roasted parsnip and carrot fries and another glob of ketchup (hey, at least itâ€™s organic):
I make the parsnip and carrot fries by rinsing and peeling the veggies, slicing them thinly, coating in olive oil and salt, and roasting at 425 degrees for about 20 minutes.
Andâ€¦. Iâ€™m off to pack for FitBloggin! I donâ€™t leave until Thursday, but tomorrow is going to be insane, and I wonâ€™t have time.
