OK, so instead of putting up the gate like usual while exercising, I thought I'd try to "sneak" and do them while Dona & Baby napped. I'll never learn but it still was worth it because I was burning calories from laughing so hard. While doing the Plank, my ears were cleaned-and very well, I might add. The Dolphin pose allowed Baby to get under me while she lay on her back trying to pump her legs up & down. I could swear she had a huge grin on her face. Maybe later I'll actually be able to get a workout in but right now I think I'll play.
I have a dog and two cats and if I'm on the floor, naturally it must be play time, or I want to pet them, or............... give them treats. But you're right -- laughing uses up calories too. Couldn't live without them!
I no longer do yoga around the puppy. I learned the hard way that the corpse pose at the end of the work out and a concerned 85 pound boxer means bad things for my ribs and stomach.
On the other hand, he is a constant reminder that I am loved. Absolutely without judgment no matter what I look like or what mood I am in. I am perfect in his eyes especially when I come bearing snacks.
I am so glad that you can find the play time with yours. 3732 days ago
I love it. I have a cat (dog lover too, but I can only have one or the other)he's crazy but we love him. I can't workout out if he is around because he thinks I'm playing and attacks my hands and feet. The other day I was on the machine and he was riding it while I did all the work. The world would be a boring place without the critters. I love them all. Happy Friday. No outfit is complete without cat hair. 3733 days ago
Too funny - love it. Hudson licks my face whenever I lie on the floor, however she can get to it, lol! Gotta love these furkids - they're a delight 99.99999% of the time. ;) Rock the day, K:) 3734 days ago
That's great! My dog, Phillip, just sits in his chair and looks at me while I do exercise videos. He likes to lick the sweat off my legs afterward, though. I'm sure you burned many calories with your belly laughs. Thanks for posting and giving me one! 3736 days ago
