Most of the time, my brain tricks me into thinking that other things are way more important than spending time working out and increasing the oxygen in my body.
But...I found I loved to exercise with my dog. I call it DOG YOGA. Romeo weights 14 pounds so I pick him up in my arms and do lifts and curls with him in my arms. He loves the attention. That's the height of multi-tasking when you get pet time while exercising. i also let him sit on my belly when I am doing sit ups. He knows right where to go and hops on when he sees me in position. When I run up and down the stairs 15 times, he runs right beside me. I love the company and now look forward to exercise.
