Staying motivated

Yes, it's been a long winter. The temptation is to stay in hibernation, curl up on the couch with the pups and a good book; not to mention a box of chocolates. But, how will I be ready for spring, the outdoors, and fewer layers of clothing if I slack off??? I keep telling myself to get moving! Get up from my desk. Go play with Tango - five minutes of heeling exercises mixed in with a few downs will do both of us good! Maybe a few Crate Games. Even if I didn't have access to our great practice ring, I could do this at home. And this afternoon, a few minutes of weaving. And then maybe some "Stay" exercises. Playing and training with my dog for just a few minutes at a time is a great way to break up the day, get some practice in for him, and get me out of my chair! That way he'll be tired tonight when I'll be nodding off in my chair. And maybe Tango and I will be ready for competition one day.

Nice work. I came across your blog while “blog surfing” using the Next Blog button on the blue Nav Bar located at the top of my blogger.com site. I frequently just travel around looking for other blogs which exist on the Internet, and the various, creative ways in which people express themselves. Thanks for sharing.
