Exercising with an extra 13 pounds this morning..
Thursday, June 03, 2010
Since I'm off today, I decided to knock out my strength training for the day this morning. I do these exercises in our office, where our computers are, and where our lhasa apsos' crate is. Millie is our big girl at 22 lbs., and Maggie is our little girl, at 13 lbs. There's a picture of them on my Photos page.
So, some of my exercises are on the floor - lying triceps lifts, leg curls, and back extensions. Usually, I close the office door when I'm exercising in the evening (so the husband doesn't hear me huffing and puffing and grunting) but he's at work this morning and it's just me and the girls. When it's time for me to hit the floor, they're both right there with me, excited that Mama's on the floor with them! Yay!
I somehow get through the triceps lifts, working around their little sniffy noses poking at me, but when it came to the leg curls and back extensions, Maggie decided she needed to help even more! She climbed up on my back and perched herself on my rear end, until my leg curls disturbed her perch and she moved up to sit on my back.
I kept going, but I don't think I've ever laughed so much while exercising in my life. Maggie went along for the ride as I did the back extensions - thoughtful little bean for helping me out! So, it may not have been my best form, but it certainly made for an enjoyable session.
I think I better do another set this evening, -with- the door closed this time
