Since Jasmine has been reluctant to go for walks with me, I’ve had to find other fitness activities. I have a few old fitness tapes that have been gathering dust over the years, and I’ve been cycling through them to see which ones I like. A couple of days ago, I tried the “8 Minute” series–Abs, Arms, Buns, Legs. Today, I tried Pilates.
Jasmine thinks that when I’m on the floor, I’m “fair game.” While I was trying to do the stretches and holds today, she decided that climbing on my stomach was the right thing to do. When I was doing leg lifts, she decided that licking my face was a fun exercise. Throughout the 42 minute tape, she was climbing on me, over me, under me and stuffing her little nose in my hand whenever she could. I could hardly keep my breath from laughing. It certainly made the exercises harder to do, but it also made exercising so much more fun to do.
Now, all I have to do is to come up with a new exercise regimen–Doggie Pilates. How to exercise with your dog. Yup. I think it would be a best-seller.
