Despite the sweets I did have, I count February as a success. The whole purpose of this "experiment was to break the sweet rampage I had been on since Christmas. And I do feel I achieve that. Had I not tried this I am certain I would be in a much worse place today physically and emotionally. .
I ran across a fun little article yesterday. It highlighted some odd little "holidays"celebrated in March. Follow me this month as I navigate health and fitness while celebrating some pretty wacky holidays. I think some are going to be more challenging then others - I am talking to you, National Pi Day.
Even though I technically missed March 1's Peanut Butter Lovers Day, I will say peanut butter and banana is a go to snack for me when I am craving something sweet and salty. For less than 200 calories I can have something super satisfying and nutritious.
Millie is by far the biggest peanut butter lover in our house. She loves it in her Kong bone. My husband
Now that we are caught up, let's move on. Today (March 3) we are celebrating If Pets Had Thumbs Day! I am not even sure where to start with this one. It is something to ponder. Feel free to share your thoughts on the possibilities. I found this PetMD slideshow of some possibilities, although I find the idea that Millie would vacuum while I am at work completely implausible.
The evidence is irrefutable....
Not even old Zommie looks like she would be into vacuuming if she had thumbs. They might be useful though for her to access the trash more easily :)
In summary...it is not going to happen.
March 3 is also National Anthem Day. Fun fact, I know three national anthems and the U.S. anthem is the one I learned last. I spent all my elementary school years in Canada so naturally I learned "O Canada" and "God Save the Queen." To this day, hearing them play stops me in my tracks. It wasn't until high school that I learned the "The Star Spangled Banner."
I hope you enjoy today's holidays :) I leave you with a peek at winter beauty. Nothing is better than sunrise.
