Not too long before my human’s boyfriend got the big new TV, he also got a combination DVD and VHS player. He wanted to be able to record some of his old videos to DVD, but my human has been using it as an excuse to pull out her ancient exercise videos. Lately she has been revisiting her old step workouts.
Can you see the video in the background, next to the Propel bottle? It is called Reebok Step Rhythm & Moves and it is from 1998!
She isn’t putting the risers underneath the step yet because she is not sure if she can remember all the choreography. But that does not matter because I don’t think I will let her use the step today at all.
Nope. Not moving.
Oui Oui says
Doesn’t she get enough exercise running around, meeting your demands? No? Then something’s wrong!
Max the Quilt Cat says
As her personal trainer, you do have the authority to give her the day off. And, yes, best not to put the risers in if she hasn’t used the step since 1998.
Have a great weekend.
Well, as you have seen, I am exactly the same when it comes to steps, Sparkle. I think the humans should buy themselves an extra step if they want to have one for their own use.
Move outta the way, kitty! I love step! Do they call it “vintage step” now?? Uh oh. I still call it “step”. Maybe folks are calling me “Vintage Lin” too.
Spitty the Kitty says
You’re only saving her from herself–she’s not exactly the spry young thing she was 14 years ago, right? You’re just protecting her from injury! Yeah, that’s it!
Sweet Purrfections says
Be careful or she may “step” on your tail! MOL

Ya know, Ms. Sparkle, I hope you did prevent your human from doing those exercises–I mean were they REALLY around in the olden days of 1998? You probably saved your human from legwarmer desire…

We think yer Mommy OUGHT to get her fitness tossin and retrievin toys fer you all day.
Fraidy Cats says
pawsome poses and “no” face, Sparkle! just think of the extra workout your human would get doing her step routine around you? 😀

Me would worry if Mommy gots out her old exercise videos. They is from the 80’s. Spandex and headbands and leg warmers. Gives me the shivers just thinking about it!
That makes a good stage for you!!!
Little One says
IF you ever decide to let your human use this step thing, are you qualified to give her massages on her sore muscles when she is done for the day?
Eric and Flynn says
The step makes a very good seat. You are making much better use of it.
Sparkle, have a great weekend!
Are those steps comfy? Maybe I should have mom get us some to sit on.
watch out Sparkle…the peeps like to get the cat involved in their insane pursuit of ‘fitness’…and they make US do most of the jumping and running…know what I mean…so…watch it bro’
We think the step makes a better pedestal for you Sparkle! But it does need the risers to make it higher. 🙂
Katnip Lounge says
OMC!! Mommy used to teach step classes! She’s too old and worn out to do that anymore…
What? Oh Nothing, Mommy…RUN!!!
Cathy Keisha says
TW has one of those combination things to put her old videos on DVD. She’s got tons of old rock concerts. I think she’s given up since she got online.
Pricilla - Famous SpokesGoat says
the publicist did a lot of stepping in her heyday. She loved it.
You should let her exercise Sparkle so she can stay healthy to take care of you
Go Sparkle, go Sparkle! You make an excellent Snoopervisor and I bet a tough trainer!
Exercise is good…I hope your mom will enjoy and not get too much muscle pain 🙂
Have a fun weekend!!
My human would start threatening to make me work out! ACK!!!
Nerissa's Life says
Personally, I think that steppy thing might make a nice little throne for YOU. purrs
Hee hee – we pets should ALWAYS help our hoomans w/workouts, shouldn’t we, Sparkle? I help MomKatt when she’s doing floor work to one of HER ancient ’80s videos (VHS?! OMC!) I rub on her, distract her during ab work then lay behind her head WHILE she’s doing the ab work!
She says I’m helping ’cause it makes her keep her shoulders just up off of the floor like you are supposed to!
I love helping!
I think you are making fine use of it Sparkle!
Glogirly & Katie says
If you sit there long enough, Sparkle, eventually she’ll feel bad and bring a soft cushion to place on your step. So much for the exercise.
; ) Katie & Glogirly
Random Felines says
hey – if it is on the floor, it is fair game……
Bet your person is glad you are sitting very firmly on that step. Now she doesn’t have to exercise. What a good deal. Hope all of you have a fun week end.
Hannah and Lucy says
Sparkle did your Mom bribe you to sit on the step and refuse to move so she couldn’t use it?
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx
The Island Cats says
Sparkle, you’re probably doing your human a great favor by not letting her use that step. She might break something…like an ankle or leg!! Then who would be able to cater to you??

My dear, you are an excellent excuse to forgo any exercise!
