My downward facing dog.
Tuesday, November 20, 2012
No camera could capture his spunky-ness, especially when I'm on the floor doing my ab workout. By the end, he had me laughing so hard, I could hardly breathe!!! Guess Bad Leroy Brown (our 6 pound, 7 year old Yorkie) was my inspiration and motivation to keep going this morning.
The day began and I had no energy. It's not often that I can't reach down deep inside and pull out some motivation . . . but it wasn't happening this morning. Finally talked myself into looking for a couple of Coach Nichole's 10 minute core routines. Especially since we're escaping to the coast for Thanksgiving and I probably won't get a lot of work out opportunities.
(I'm still finding my way around SP and half the time I can't find what I'm looking for.) I came across Kathy Smith's 20 yoga/pilates video and a 10 min of yoga fusion video. I've done them before and liked them, so I did 'em again.
After I finished, I thought I'd try to remember some of the movements and work them into my fav ab routine so I could take 'em with me this weekend.
So, here I am on the floor.... and Leroy thinks it's time to romp.
When my hand goes this direction for a side stretch, what does he do but chase it and try to sit on it. Now I do the stretch on the other side . . . same thing, off he goes. Woof! he's got me again. This goes on with my every move for 10 minutes. Time to cool down.
Woof! I look and his head is on his front paws down on the floor with his tail sticking straight up -- a downward facing dog if I've ever seen it! The real thing.
My little buddy and fav workout partner!
