ID:	659970Not the best picture because of the weeds, but these are my babies. 'Momma' is the mom to Scrappy, Zarah and Stubs. Beau is a little beast now at 80+ pounds and hes not even a year yet. I love them all, but Stubs is my boy. When I am home he has to be with me wherever i go. If I leave his sight he will go from room to room until he finds me . He hates being wet, doesn't like being dirty. As soon as 'daddy' leaves the bed (my hubby) Stubby will climb up on his pillow and snuggle next to me. He licks away my tears when I am upset...He also drives me crazy . A talker and a barker. He tells me all about his day when I get home.

            This is likely caused by not lifting enough with your core. Often people new to crow pose (or old-timers, if we're being lazy about it) will get bruises on their arms from the weight of their knees bearing down onto their arm flesh. Once you build sufficient core strength, and learn how to engage it in crow pose to lift yourself up, the weight on your upper arm flesh will decrease.

            Probably I've posted this before, but this spreadsheet has links at the top to several different crow pose video tutorials. Lots of tips & tricks and training ideas in there.

                Feb 25: >>>>>> 9 <<<<<<

                I started with Power Up day 18, but found very quickly that the pulse squats were not working for me today. I did get through them all, but I was struggling more than usual, i had to stop and straighten my legs a second or 2 before continuing...possibly from all the standing I've been doing from painting. I didn't even try the side bridges, so I will retry this days workout another day.

                I did do YWA Crow pose video - was actually able to lift my toes and hold for a couple of seconds before I fell forward

                So an hour or so of painting and 16 minutes total workout/practice time - which includes a 1 minute plank hold! I was pleasantly surprised to see I could hold it that long! Barely but i did it!

                  Click image for larger version  Name:	IMG_3301.JPG Views:	3 Size:	201.8 KB ID:	660330 Dog of the day: Hadley. These are my favorite type stories. Some of the dogs that are brought in have the opportunity to become service dogs or therapy dogs. These dogs are normally donated to a family in need and they go through extensive training both in and outside the institution. This sweet and very smart girl was an owner surrender at only 4 mos old. She is a German Shephard. I cant even fathom someone surrendering a full blooded shepherd pup, but it happens. The first day here she was learning the basics and picking right up on them. She adores her trainer and he has taught her a lot of cool things. I have a hilarious little video that shows her 'clearing the hall' which is where she goes down the hall and will alert the handler if someone is there. She wasn't expecting there to be the volunteer dog trainer(he's the one that comes in and teaches the handlers how to train the dogs) hiding down the hall. She ran down turned the corner and he was right there...she skidded to a stop and turned around and ran back to her handler barking. That is what she was supposed to do, but she was obviously startled!

                  If anyone is curious the link for info is here. It goes into a little detail of the training and the services dogs and you can see the dogs that are up for adoption. Many of the pictures on there from the institution are ones that I have taken.

                  *I just remembered that the website is undergoing a revamp, so there is not a lot on there right now, but you can read a bit about it*

                    UGH - I don't know if its the weather, lack of medication (i ran out of my anti-anxiety meds a few days ago), just over working myself or a combination of it all but i did not feel like doing anything today. I have more painting to do, but I didn't. Had dinner planned, but didn't cook it. Any number of random household chores and bills to be paid...nope. Only reason I got any exercise is because Beau Bear had a vet appt and me and my daughter took him around town a bit. He is not well trained on a leash yet and he is very skittish away from home. The only way he will walk is if he is between your legs...which makes walking real interesting! My fitness app counted it as a workout, so i am too

                        FEB 27 - March 1st: >>>>>> Streak 14 <<<<<< ...now to try and remember what all i did lmao! Since I was a bit of a mess Im just going to do my best to remember what I did

                        https://darebee.com/programs/power-up.html: Days 18 and 19: (done on 2 different days) repeated day 18 but I still struggled with the squats. Day 19 was all well and good until the up and down pulses, about half way through on both sides my thighs cramped up.

                        Lets see...Yesterday (3/1)(total time auto-tracked 35 mins) i spent some time outside playing with the dogs, then later went to the park and walked with my son and daughter. We walked about a mile or so. Climbed the 'little' 10 ft or so wall they have there for the mud run they have.

                        2/29
                        (total tracked 16:36 mins) - the leap year workout I wanted to do has been put on hold. A friend of ours had a seizure and fell forward onto the concrete, breaking his nose and giving him a concussion. That put my day off a bit as i went over to try and help with that. I think i did day 19 power up this day with some yoga and walking with my dogs. I don't know....

                        2/28 (total time 30 mins) - I did a FitOn ap workout - 21 min 'Sexy Arms, Abs, and Legs' done with 4lb weights. Nice, I liked it. Not too challenging, but challenging enough for sure! I think I followed up with stretching to cool down.

                        2/27 (total time 26.01) - I did day 18 (6+ mins) power up and....I did a FitOn ap workout - 12 min long total body strong, with 4lb weights. This one was pretty tough.

                        No running...this rain needs to shove off. Im sick of it.

                        I am still on track though!

ID:	662125Dog of the Day: Audi - Audi is a 1 - 2 year old male Border Collie that was found as a stray. No back story for strays of course...I always wonder what they could tell us if they could talk. Ive not had a lot of interaction with this one, but he seems very chill and is doing well in training.

                            Yeah, Kady! Have an awesome life, sweetheart!

                              Mar 2 >>>>>> Streak 15! <<<<<<

                              https://darebee.com/running/30-days-of-running.html: Day 19 -
                              So I am extremely disappointed as it just seemed to be one thing after another on this run. I lost my GPS signal right off the bat, so it didn't record anything distance wise. I don't have an accurate time because at some point i accidently hit pause on my watch and the only reason I have the distance is because my hubby came to pick me up and I used the odometer. 2.7 miles ran(disappointing, i felt it was farther) probably about 5K with warm up and cool down...maybe 45 mins total time.


                              https://darebee.com/programs/power-up.html: Day 20 - Ugh, my arms...they needed little mini breaks

                              https://darebee.com/hive/daily-dares...se-plank-hold: WITH EC! WOOT~

                              YWA Post Run Stretch - got some stretching in then practiced a little crow work.

ID:	662422Pupper of the Day: Pogo - Pogo is a very energetic 2 yr old Female Husky. I don't have any background on her as it says she was a shelter pull. Undoubtedly someone saw the dog and said ohhh!! She is so pretty, I want her! Not knowing how Husky's are. They are a lot of work, they need a lot of attention/exercise and they can be very vocal and stubborn. This one loves to be snuggled and has the softest fur! She loves to bounce around and play, and let everyone know when she is not pleased with her grumbles and moans . I believe she has a home waiting at this time, after she completes her training.
