Then I got a dog. Actually, I got 2 Great Danes. I had dogs as a child and had missed having a furry pup in my life. These great big dogs require exercise. I don't have a choice. I have to get up and run them for an hour. I have to take them out to exercise and run around at night. I have to fit my schedule around it because it is simply just a given. As a result, I am probably in the best shape of my life. Although I mostly stick to a healthy diet, the truth is, I could probably eat whatever I like and still be in great shape because of all the exercise I get. The best part? I have the best "little" workout buddies I could ask for.
I agree compelelty with you! Ever since having my dog, I feel more energized and try to run a lot more with him. He loves the outdoors and it makes running fun again!
I am wondering if anyone else has experienced this? Has anyone noticed there workout routine (and as a result there fitness level) bumped up by there pets?

It is by far the hardest diet to stick to but I know from experience that it works because I lost 25 pounds that month. I only wish I had the will power to maintain it.
