Fruits and Veggies for Your Dog

Fruits and Veggies for Your Dog Toxic or Not?    With more and more of us choosing healthier lifestyles for ourselves. What about our dogs?   In many household, dogs are looked at as a furry family member, not just a pet. It’s important for them to get a good amount of exercise along with getting fed a healthy and nutritious diet.   With all the food scares concerning commercial dog foods, we are constantly looking for healthier, more natural alternatives.

MIM: Airplane Pose

MIM: Airplane Pose

Time for your Move It Monday!  This week we are working on balance and hip flexor strength with the Airplane Pose!  You may have done these before if you have done yoga.  Several muscles work to stabilize you in this position including your hip flexors, glutes, hamstrings, quadriceps (standing leg), and shoulder and back muscles.  It’s really a total body workout!  Here’s how to do it: 1. Start by balancing on one leg, keeping it straight.  A slight bend in the knee is ok 2. Lift the other leg behind you, making sure that leg stays straight 3. Lower the […]

Live Your Dreams

It all started with a hike in Solvang, CA,  mommy and I were camping there with daddy who was doing a century bike race.  While daddy was out riding his bike, mommy and I went hiking.  We had never been on the trail before and we had to figure out how to get to it. It was down a long dirt road.  We started the hike not knowing what to expect.  It was a nice hike and a good workout. We got to the top and it was AMAZING!! One of the prettiest views that we have seen on our […]

What People Are Saying

I joined LYF so I could exercise with my dog and meet new people. After two months I noticed how better toned I was, after 9 months I was down two sizes and was more fit than I had been in a long time. Besides that, my friends without dogs are envious of how much fun I have, hiking, kayaking, surfing, running in a 5K. If you want to have fun with your dog, meet great people and get fit, come join us. — Diane
