Here are some of the things I’m doing to get back into shape…

OMG!!! Have you seen this thing? Squats with these made me realize just how long it had been since I’d had a real work out! These work your core muscles like you wouldn’t believe. Start with a lower weight than you think you need and have fun with it!


This was just too much fun to really be a workout, and yet it’s also great for lymphatic drainage too.


I have a dog, and he is only well behaved when he’s tired. Need I say more? Our household motto: “A tired Basenji is a good Basenji.”


This I do for me. Sure it’s relaxing, but yoga is not to be taken lightly. It can be an intense workout.

Hula Hoop

These are not the hula hoops from your childhood memories. These are weighted and one heck of a workout. Start out slowly, 1-2 minutes a day, or you may experience bruising… Wanna know how I know that little tidbit? Yeah, all-or-nothing girl here did 8 minutes the first day. Here is the link to the one I have. Give it a try.
