Lucy's Roll to Encourage Weight Training (My Cat)

Thursday, July 11, 2013

My cat, Lucy, is a character. When she is happy, she will roll on the carpet and stretch out and roll some more. Today I was on Day 4 of my weight training routine and she decided to join me. At one time, while I was on my back with the dumbbells, she decided to sit on my chest to offer her support, literally. emoticon

I know they are not the greatest photos to show her famous roll but the video camera on my phone isn't the greatest. Lucy is a lot of fun for sure. She is 6 years old and I adopted her from the SPCA.

I am enjoying this weight training a lot. I typed the training schedule on my Spark page. It is SO much fun! Since I am a beginner and have MS, my program is simple right now. My arms were sore this morning and I did the upper body three days ago so it feels good to know that it is working (the soreness was minimal).

And finally, Lucy's triumphant sitting, on her throne, by her favorite window.

Thanks for reading my blog and the best to you with all your SP goals! emoticon emoticon

Love, Chelsea emoticon emoticon

    Oh that Lucy...what a little character..they say that animals take on their owners personalities and I certainly believe this to be true with little Lucy girl. emoticon She's got that sis boom ba...that her mommy does!

Our Mr. Keanu who is now a ripe ole' 18 years old has always had my hubs character...quiet and reserved and oh so proper. His momma cat Chin Chin had my personality and was a total pain in the patootie...but she was SO cute she got away with it EVERY time...heh heh! She's on my pic page.

I'm soooo happy that you are into the ST...that's something I absolutely need to step up. When I wave at someone my arms re-vibe for hours! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    My four cats line up and make comments to each other when I attempt to do yoga. Then if I try to do lying down poses, they come up close and peer at me! You can almost hear the feline conversation.

'What on Earth is she doing now'
'Goodness knows, she doesn't seem hurt, but why IS she making that funny grunting noise'
'Why can't humans just settle down in their baskets and go to sleep?'
'Search me! Tsk, Humans eh'

If I'm REALLY lucky, I get the white cat from two doors down, joining in too!

    Chelsea, glad your exercise program is going so well. I also have a furry feline 'helper.' Clown was 18 years old last Thursday but still helps me do my leg stretches.

Give Lucy an extra pet for being such a good helper.

    Lucy is a sweetheart, I love cats, I agree, they are such "characters", I have a male orange and white tabby, he was adopted from the SPCA, he was a rescue from not a great environment, once he gained my trust he has become such a loving boy. He basically chose me as he walked out of his enclosure onto my lap, we have been together since that day.. we are inseparable, His name is "sunshine" emoticon

    Funny how cats like to "help" with exercise--just like they "help" make the beds and "help with gift-wrapping and "help" with knitting. Never had a cat "help" with the vacuuming though.They're beautiful!

    Your blog made me happy! She is beautiful and full of cuteness. I have 2 chihuahuas, Chico and Sarah, who like to help me do weighted sit ups. THEY LOVE ON ME WHEN I'M DOING YOGA POSES ON THE FLOOR. I just giggle and kiss them! Thanks for sharing and making my day better!

    LOL! My Kallie is always doing her best to "act cute" when I am doing my workouts; it's hard for me not to stop sometimes and just snuggle her!

    Yes, our animals certainly do want to help and support us! With our dogs, their "help" is more if a nuisance , but they mean well!!

Really enjoyed the photos of Lucy. Her antics during exercise may contribute to your enjoying the workouts!

Your are doing great! emoticon
