Exercising with Chihuahua’s. It’s Tougher Than It Sounds

One of my resolutions this year is to lose that last 15lbs of baby fat I’ve been carrying around for the last 10 years since the birth of my son. I know, it’s something a lot of people say they’re going to do, and I’ll admit, I’ve said it before. But this time I mean it, I really do! More than any other time. Of course, I’ve said that before too. 😉

But, that’s besides the point, right?

I’ve been working out every day using the Wii Fit that hubby and I bought just before Christmas. It’s a lot of fun and it’s been working a bit, I’m actually down 1kg! We put the Wii system in our bedroom so I can exercise when I want, and in peace when the kids and hubby were home for the holidays.

Now that the holidays are over, though, he’s back to shift work, which means that there are times when he works midnights and I can’t use the bedroom. Not a big deal, I have yoga dvd’s downstairs that I can use. And I do thouroughly enjoy yoga.

Today was the first day I pulled out the yoga mat while hubby is blissfully snoring away upstairs.

I didn’t take into account the two very young, very energetic and very loving chihuahua puppies I aquired over the summer.

Have you ever tried to do downward facing dog with two tiny little dogs licking your face? It’s not easy, I have to tell you. Never mind meditating after your workout!

I’m definitely going to have to figure something out, though. It’s very hard to find inner peace with a chihuaha dancing around your feet while in tree pose.
