Well hello there!

Welcome back to another edition of a week in the life of Marci’s long journey. This week was kind of messed up. My week started out really strong and then fell apart. I was walking home from work last week when a dog in our neighborhood attacked me and chomped onto the back of my leg. Not a huge bite, but it’s in a bad spot that always rubs on my clothes the more I moved it would get sore pretty swollen up. And of course it also hits the chair right where I sit. It’s a no win situation.  So this slowed me down a bit this week. 

I think what upset me the most about this situation was the fact that I have never been down right attacked by a dog. I have been charged by dogs, but never jumped like that. I just can’t fathom why a dog owner would let there dog out near people with that type of aggresssive behavior. I got the bite checked out by a doctor and they filed a report with Animal Control. Animal Control will let me know if the dog is up to date on it’s shots when they do their investigation. My fear is that the dog is going to pay the pentalt for their owner’s lack of common sense and poor judgment.  Such crap, it really makes me mad. 

Okay, enough bitching, let’s get down to business and see how I did this week. 

 Week 11 Goals Check:

  • Stay hydrated -A- I’m drinking all the water, but I still need to be more consistent about logging it.

That was a weird week. Going to get busy this week. My leg is almost back to its normal self, so it’s time to get moving. I will keep you all posted with the Animal Control situation. I can’t believe I actually lost a little weight this week, that was a nice surprise. I’m thinking about changing up the formatting of my blog posts.  Time to shake it up a little bit. Be on the look out for something a little different next week. See you all then!
