The Trouble With Kittens And Pushups

Friday, November 22, 2013

I'm doing a 30 day fitness challenge I came across on Facebook. 100 pushups a day for 30 days. At present, I'm doing 3 sets of 40 pushups per day. Except for this last Wednesday. On Tuesday, I did 4 sets of 40. Wednesday, I only did 1 set of 40. It averaged out.

I can sneak off to an isolated area at work for the occasional set of 40. At home, things get a little more difficult. I typically do my pushups in jammies that have a drawstring at the waist. The drawstring dangles down and entices my little furry bundle of evil. So...while I'm doing my pushups, the cat is underneath me swatting at the drawstrings. I know. I'm surprised that there is enough room betwixt my gelatinous gut and the ground for a sheet of paper to fit, let alone a cat. Sometimes, she "misses" the drawstring and her claws find my gut. I know she laughs then. She's a cat.

From time to time, the dog gets involved. He'll come over and start grabbing my hands and trying to start a wrasslin' match. Either that, or he's trying to get me to fall on the cat. Dog's, though, aren't that devious. I think he just wants to wrassle.

    HA! Gizmo, my cat, has always liked to work out with me. If I'm doing yoga she likes to be under me or right beside me. If I'm doing something with weights she is right there, on the elliptical, right there. I think it's cute to have a workout buddy. Keeps you motivated to at least laugh every day.

    Cute. But way to go doing so many pushups. Those guns are gonna be rockin' when the weather warms again.

    I have too many cats, and they tend to walk under me then ask for kisses. Still it is encouragement not to collapse.

    Have a great day

    My kids think push ups are a great time time for daddy gym. I usually end up doing a few sets of squats, presses, or othe exercises with them.

    Ha ha! I go through this every time I practice yoga! Both cats seem intent on making me fall over in proud warrior, and heaven help you if you try to attempt a plank.
