Working Out With Waffles

WAFFLES:  If Glogirly's supposed to be rowing this thing, it sure doesn't look like a boat. 

WAFFLES:  Doesn't smell like a boat either. 

WAFFLES:  No water, no boat. What a ripoff.

KATIE:  It's a rowing machine, Waffles. 

WAFFLES:  You mean like a boat?

KATIE:  Like a rowing machine. 

WAFFLES:  Like a boat machine?

KATIE:  Like a ROWING MACHINE. You know, for working out. 

WAFFLES:  I don't know why she doesn't just run around the house doing zoomies. That's how I work out. She just sits on that machine thing pulling a big handle back and forth, back and forth. 

KATIE:  Yeah, well this is my idea of working out. 

Sheltering & Working Out at Home
Fortunately, when we moved to Colorado Glogirly realized that going to a gym was not going to ever be in the cards. Just driving down our canyon roads to the grocery store is a commitment, so finding a gym just isn't practical. Over the years she's been accumulating a few pieces of workout equipment though and has set up our own gym right here at home.

And now that gyms and fitness centers across the country are closed, she's more grateful than ever to have her own space. Of course, the trick is to actually USE it! LOL!

Waffles and Katie will often join her.

While Katie prefers lounging on the rug or finding a sun puddle, Waffles seems to be far more curious about the whole exercising ritual.


  1. My human has been working out at home for years! But she doesn't have much in the way of equipment other than dumbbells.

  2. Mom has tried to do some home workouts since this started. We like to help!

  3. Katie, I prefer your form of a work out any day, my pretty girl!!! And Waffles, those zoomies keep you nice and agile!!

  4. Yes, the hard part is actually using the equipment!
    But with such adorable workout partners, I'm sure they motivate you.

  5. Our mom tries to go for walks every day. She also tries to do a workout video in the morning, but the doldrums are setting in and she's sleeping late. I have to get her back on track.

  6. I’m with Katie...Korey is falls into the Waffles camp.

  7. Our mom misses going to the gym, but she's been walking and biking as much as she can.

  8. We agree, using all the equipment is the hardest part ! Purrs

  9. You two kitties are so cute! I use my exercise equipment regularly - to hang my laundry on - MOL!

  10. Leave the working out to the humans, Waffles. You just keep doing your zoomies.

  11. Katie's workout routine is aww-dorable

  12. Whoa! Rumor has it TW used to have a stationary bike—try to figure that one out—in the old house that was good at gathering dust and hanging clothes off. We have a gym right in the complex here but it's closed right now. Our neighbor has a trampoline out on the terrace and her and her wife exercise on it outside. Pop likes that. MOL!

  13. Mum used to have a bike thingy but it bothered her knees so it went away. Now she just goes for a walk outside.

  14. Katie, we are with you on how to work out. Waffles needs to do some zoomies, so you can join Katie for some comfy time. Thanks for the share. Have a fantastic rest of your day.

  15. Yep, I'm all for Katie's version of working out. And I think dad got real tired just looking at these workout pix.


Thank you so much for your comment. We LOVE hearing from you!
