Puppies and exercise
Wednesday, March 12, 2014
So I may be the only person in existence who gets less exercise now that she has a puppy. To be fair, most of my exercise takes me out of the house and away from him, so it's understandable when I can't do some of it, but between my knee injury (oh, wow, it's bee a while since I've been on here!), and puppy, I've been getting... fat. Ugh.
-- this is what happens when we walk on the road instead of the bike path: Noooo! Don't make me leave my beloved snowbank!!! --
So today I've committed to re-focusing on my diet and improving that, as well as getting my exercise while I can. Upside: spring might be soon on it's way, making it safer (and less frickin' freezing!) to walk Mr. Puppy. Also, he's getting better on-leash (and WAY better off), so eventually I will be able to walk at a normal speed, rather than a crawl (silly puppy).
In other news, my knee injury is mostly healed. I'm the only person I know who regularly does dangerous activities and yet manages to injure herself in ballet class. Woo. Rock climbing, silks, aerial yoga, hiking, Spartan races... and what gets me? Ballet. Tweaked coronary ligament is mostly healed (I can bend my knee almost all the way, AND have weight on it!). Soon I hope to be at 100%.
