There are currently two overweight males living in my house. I am not proud of the fact that I haven’t worked out at all last year. And I did gain a good chunk of weight to go along with my laziness. But, as my resolution for the new years, I am trying to change this. I am trying to work out.
The other fat male is Loki. The cat. The fat cat who actually owns the house. Most house cats, if released in the wild, would find a way to survive. I’m not sure Loki could catch prey that was injured. Hell, I’m not sure he could catch prey that was already dead. I mean, he catch the cat food I put out for him, but still. Living in the wild? I do not think he could pull it off.
So, recently I have gotten into a routine that will, hopefully, help both of us. I work out with my bowflex weights (that I have owned for years). In between my reps, I grab a stick with a sting, and try to get Loki to play with it. It doesn’t take long for him to get tired out, which is fitting; since it doesn’t take me long to get tired out. At least I am trying to get him active again.
So that is the plan for now. I am trying to get both of us in a little better shape. I know I need to lose more weight than him, even in a percentage of out respective weights. The one issue I am having is that I am struggling with keeping Loki focused. He just wants to eat and sleep.
Actually, that sounds like a good idea.
