My Favorite Workout Partner

As you may know, I’ve been on a weight loss journey for quite some time and in the last year or so, I’ve shed 135 pounds and completely transformed my body and my health.

A huge part of my weight loss has been working out, and I have to say, Sofi is one of my favorite workout buddies.  A lot of my cardio is done at the gym, but quite a bit of it has been done alongside Sofi.  We go on daily walks, which I’m proud to say have gotten faster and longer now that I’m in such good shape.  It’s always fun to find new places for us to explore on our walks.  Walking with Sofi has been such a nice way for me to take some time and appreciate all of life’s simple beauty.

Sofi helps to remind me that even when life seems really complicated, a walk can do wonders to put things into perspective.

After I’d lost a significant amount of weight, I decided it was time to incorporate toning into my workouts.  I have a little home workout room set up in my second bedroom, and Sofi seems to love these workouts even more than I do.

She’s always interested in the strange positions she sees me getting in when I’m working out, but especially loves it when I get on the floor.  Whenever I’m doing abs work (or any other move that might take me down to the yoga mat), she absolutely attacks me with kisses and licks.  No matter how hard the workout is, she instantly makes me laugh and smile.
