Puppy Yoga

Sunday, January 19, 2014

I so wish I could add a picture for this blog!! Today's Jessica Smith workout was called Strength In Stillness. It was a yoga inspired workout and I needed it after the killer ST workouts we did last week! So, I'm in the plank position and my sweet Sassy comes and puts her back right up under my chin. I could easily rest on it.... She just stands there as long as I am "holding" the pose. She smelled like warm sunshine and her fur was warm. Every move I made she was either on top of me or beside me. When I was doing the butterfly pose she crawled in between my legs and snuggled her head up under my chin! I nuzzled her and we cuddled for a few moments. It wasn't part of the workout, but oh boy did it enhance it! Again, she was warm and smelled like warm sunshine. I know it is cold out, but I guess her black fur just absorbs the sun's heat! It was very nice to be stretching and having my puppy beside me and yes, even on me! I needed it after all the bad news about my dad's arteries and just the precariousness of life in general.

Happiness truly is a warm dog.... Thanks Charles Schultz! Even better a warm puppy doing yoga with you! And, my! What a beautiful downward dog Sassy does! I just love her!

*I start belly dancing again tomorrow. This is a big step. I haven't taken classes since my Mom died last year. I havne't really danced since October of last year. I'm excited and a bit nervous since I've been gone so long! It will be a great way to add those 5% challenge air miles to my week and good for my mind, body and spirit!
*I am going to Curves too. Tomorrow will be a big fitness day!
*I skipped water aerobics today since I am experiencing some tummy troubles. Augh~ That's another blind anger issue.... You can't go any where with a sick stomach because someone probably will have to guide you to the nearest bathroom and well, I am very private about that stuff anyhow! I mean, I am a princess after all! But, I did a 45 minute walking workout and the yoga workout and feel good right now!
*Thank you all, always, for the good vibes and prayers!!

    I love my floor workout with my doggies. Rat-Rat sits on my tummy and gives me a kiss every time I come up during my crunches. I do a 120 crunches so I get a 120 Rat-Rat kisses! Then when I do my planks my Sassy girl sits between my arms to keep me from giving up on my plank too soon! I love the way you talk about how your Sassy smells of warm sunshine. My little Rat-Rat always smells of vanilla and lavender because of the dryer sheets that I use on his blankie. He drags his blankie everywhere with him. It is was cut from his mother's birthing blanket. emoticon I am glad your dog is there for you. emoticon

    Bravo for all the wonderful things you are doing for fitness. I can't imagine anything better than "puppy yoga" with Sassy. What she did is special and adorable. Good luck with the belly dancing!
