Our poor sweet pug is getting old. He turns 9 in June, and we recently noticed that he might be having some issues with his hips, which is super common for the breed. Yesterday, I saw Murphy sleeping in Quinn's bed, which he's never done before. He usually sleeps in our bed (and crushes the pillows like it's his job), but it seemed like he opted for the lower bed over our much higher one - maybe because his hips were bothering him?
Then, on our afternoon walk, it looked like he was struggling a bit. He was totally pumped for the walk - sniffing and smelling everything and ping-ponging all over the road - but his gait looked different than it normally does. Poor pug. I shared this on Instagram Stories and received so many awesome suggestions about supplements for senior dogs. A few people recommended one from Nordic Naturals, which is actually the same brand of fish oil that I take, so I ordered it. I'll be here on Friday, and I really hope it helps. It breaks my heart to see our sweet pug getting older.
This morning, I was up and at 'em at 4:45 AM for the 5:15 AM class at CrossFit. Getting up at that hour is TOUGH, but I know my day will go so much better if I work out first thing in the morning. Plus, the workout was a really fun one! My partner and I finished with 192 calories on the bike.
I'm finishing this post from KFIT this morning, and I'm using my new portable stand-up desk. Love it! I'm also packed up and ready to go with all sorts of healthy eats for the day. I'm trying to get back into the habit now that I have a real office to go to! 🙂

And... just needed to share this adorable photo of Qman from 3 years ago. It popped up on Facebook this morning and put the biggest smile on my face!
