Bad Leroy Brown doesn't like SparkPeople

Friday, December 28, 2012

Bad Leroy Brown doesn't care much for SparkPeople.
He's written a letter and asked me to share with you:

Hi. I'm Bad Leroy Brown. That's me in the picture above, beside the elephants, guarding mom's desk in her office. That's where I spend a lot of time now.

Before mom joined SparkPeople in October, I had it made. Mom would usually sit on the couch most of the day reading a book or chatting with her friends and family on Facebook. So, being the faithful companion that I am, I would snuggle in her lap or right up against her on the couch. It was great.

But because of SparkPeople, she doesn't sit down very often anymore. She's always up and doing stuff in the house or outside. Used to be when she tried to do stuff outside, she'd always have to stop because her back or hips or shoulders would start to hurt. I heard her tell dad the other day that the workout videos she's been doing with Coach Nichole has made her feel so much better. Well, Coach Nichole might be kinda cute but come to think of it, I don't think I like her very much either.

The other day mom was acting really weird - walking fast from the bedroom into the living room and then into her office, and walking circles around the couch and chairs and stuff like that.

And if that wasn't bad enough, she started teasing me with one of my favorite treats and wouldn't give it to me. She made me get out of my comfortable bed to try to get it. And then she started running again and I had to chase her all over the house to finally get it. Whew! I was tired and panting afterwards! I think I slept the rest of that day!

I guess I should be really happy for mom because she is so much happier. She smiles all the time. She's always doing stuff, listening to music and dancing around the house. She even tries to sing sometimes. (Ewwww.) She does a lot of stuff that dad used to do like bring in firewood and do stuff in the yard and around the pond.

Maybe it won't be too bad if she doesn't make me chase her anymore. But I notice she's beginning to call me names like 'Tugboat' and 'Piglet'. What's up with that anyway?

Mom has been telling everybody about SparkPeople and how she's made so many really cool SparkFriends.

Anyway, thanks for being nice to my mom. She gets a little bit weird some times but she's relatively harmless.

    LOL!!! emoticon Thanks for a wonderful perspective from our furbabies. My furkitties always want to know what I'm doing on the floor and always come over to investigate. They soon tire when they realize that I'm not on their level to play with them but, to do my sit-ups and push-ups. Now, I really know what they're thinking.

    Ahhh, Leroy. I'm sorry you're having such a bad time of it. It's SparkDoggies for you this year, I'm afraid.
You should be so proud of your mom. I know all of her friends are!

emoticon Here's a tennis ball for you, so you can join your mom in some fun and games! Happy New Year.

    Well Leroy, just talk to my Tazzy. Once you get used to all the moving around you'll actually like it. My Tazzy begs me to go walking with her now. Soon you'll be like mom.

    Hi Mr. Brown,
How ya doin'? Our mom is on that SparkPeople, too. Now all she does is want to throw balls so we have to go chase. She says it's exercise for all three of us. When you get your mom straightened out, come over to our house, will ya? Sophie and Maggie

Cat, love this blog! Hope he writes more!

    Cats either tries to get under me when I am exercising at the house, think I am a big cat toy and try to bat me, or try to curl up on my stomach during crunches.

    Too bad for Leroy. If Mom really wanted to she could take you for walks. That would be good for him. emoticon

    My kitties prefer it when I spark...that provides them a lap and a head to sit on.

    Love it! I thought of you last night while I was standing in the kitchen waiting for my rice bag to heat in the microwave before bedtime. You had blogged about walking around the house. Rather than stand there for 3 1/2 minutes, I walked around my island in the kitchen for 3 1/2 minutes. The dogs and cats all thought I was crazy but I got 3 1/2 more mins of fitness!

    Heh. My cat often wanders around the house following me, waiting for me to sit down so she has a lap.

    Reply from my dog: " Yes and what does she mean, I can't have any because she has already weighed and tracked it. And why are there fewer crumbs around for me to clean up. And why can't I lick her face when she is lying on the floor. And sometimes she sneaks out while I am sleeping and walks without me. There must be something we can do about this!"
Bark on! emoticon
