Pics and a Story

Weigh-in: 228.4

I felt kinda sluggish this morning as I made me way through a 30 minute workout, so afterwards I played around with my camera a bit. Someone had asked for some updated pics a few days ago. I was going to wait until day 150 which is coming up, but what the heck.

Don't pay any attention to the retarded/crazy faces I'm making :). Click the pics for Larger/Scarier versions.

In other news, I have a story to tell:

As I mentioned before, Liz and I adopted a 6-8 year old St. Bernard rescue named Bella. She is the nicest dog. Bella had surgery last week and this week she's had some complications that has caused her to bleed. She'll be OK, not to worry. In the meantime we wanted to keep her in the kitchen when we're not at home so she doesn't get blood all over the house.

Yesterday morning Liz put Bella in the kitchen and blocked off the door with an ottoman and a recliner chair. I came home at lunch to check on her and she had pushed the recliner and ottoman out of the way and was asleep on our bed. Thanks Bella!

I had an old plywood door in the garage. I cut it in half and installed it in the doorway, then latched it with a brass hook and loop into the door jam.

Liz and I went for a walk last night after putting Bella back in the kitchen and closing the new door.

Upon arriving home, I opened the front door to the house, only to be greeted by Bella.

Upon further inspection, I found this.

Needless to say, I think we might be getting her a diaper instead. That should be a good punishment!

Pics are looking good! Dogs are a pain in the ass, but they're worth it. That link isn't working, it's got a bunch of stuff appended to the beginning.

Looking good, man. And that story/pics cracked me up.

Oh - and your shoes are untied!

The crazy faces are funny. You're looking good!

As for the dog, it's my belief that animals in general are a pain. Our cats (all 4 of them) are outdoor cats but they don't seem to realize that, as we are constantly having to throw them back out after we open the door (and after I, of course, love them up- is that part of the problem? ;)

Awww Bella...she is like Im so not being locked up in here! We used the doggie diapers and they worked pretty good.

Man, Bella tore that place up. LMAO. Reminds me of a German Sheppard mix puppy I had in an apartment when I was growing up. We left "Cookie" in the bathroom one day...needless to say she greeted us at the door too.

Great photos of you as well!

Brian you are looking great! I think you are definetly getting close to "lost enough weight, start to tone phase". Thats awesome that you are going to invest in a Olympic bar and some weight. That will give you allot of options and you will gain some muscle in no time. If you put the same amount of effort into that as you have into loosing weight you will do some crazy stuff, i Have no doubt.
