Last year when we adopted little Ziggy I was at my heaviest- 196 pounds. He was actually one of my excuses to get in shape. Most people say there kids inspire them to get in shape- but I was inspired my little Schneigle.
Back then I hated to exercise. Getting off the coach was a chore for me. When we adopted our little boy all that changes- we had to walk- or he would drive us CRAZY!!!! So we started walking a mile every night- that mile gradually increased to two or three miles a day. I soon realized I really enjoyed our nightly walks. Probably almost as much as he did. Walking was such a stress release, it was a great way to re-introduce exercise into my lifestyle. In a little less than a year I went from walking to running a 5k, playing on a soccer team and taking yoga classes. And I feel like I owe part of that to Ziggy.
To this day, when I don't feel like moving off that couch I look at him and know he needs it as much as I do... and who can resist those little begging eyes???
Thank-you little Ziggy, you remind me every day to get moving!
Enough blogging now- its time for his morning jaunt!
See you lighter!
P.S. 3 pounds down this week!
