Getting anything done in our crowded household is always a challenge. Strength training is especially fun when aided by my lovely black cat, Boo.
We've warmed up and we're ready to go... And it goes something like this.
Boo: "Yes, I'm right under your feet. There is no way you can cheat when doing your reverse crunches. If you kick me in the head, I will bite you."
And a few exercises later...
Boo: "Why in the world did you throw your barbell through the storm window."
"Well, dear, it's called momentum. There's a huge difference between 3 pounds and 11 pounds. I wish you wouldn't decide to hang off just one barbell when I'm doing tricep extensions."
Boo: "Oh goodie, she's playing London Bridge again, although she calls them something like lying obstructions. If I time it just right, I can scare her into thinking she's squished me. Then again, if I dig my claws into her sock, she can toss me across the Thames in one go."
Another exercise session. A few more dollars on repairs....
