Have You Ever Had a Llama in Your House?
Heartsong Fit With Vickie Maris
Podcast Episode HF2

 

Would You Like to Hear a Farm Story?
In this episode, Vickie does a recording from a lawn chair in the snow by the barn as she is surrounded by her llamas. Her Connemara pony, Kerrymor Madison, stood next to the fence, just behind Vickie as she recorded. Jack Russell Terrier, Hope, joined the scene a few minutes in and contributed her two cents while the llamas were kissing her nose. 

You’ll get to learn a bit about life on the farm as Vickie describes her one-eyed llama, Stunning, whom Madison is so careful with as he moves around her. She describes the coloring of Primary Colors and how she sends the fleeces, sheared in the spring, to the mill for processing into rovings and yarn.

Vickie also shares a story about the harsh 2014 winter and the day she found Lily, the llama, shivering in the barn. Lily got to live in the old farm house for a few hours as she warmed up and enjoyed watching Let’s Make a Deal on the TV. 

 If you’d like to watch the video that Vickie mentions of her and Madison out in the heavy snow, you can find it on the Youtube channel:  http://www.youtube.com/vickiemaris

 

Did You Work Out Today?
Vickie encourages you in your fitness journey as she talks about her experience following the schedule in Focus T25 to build cardio, strength, and flexibility. She has finished the first five weeks of Focus T25, or the Alpha section, and has moved on to the final five weeks, or Beta.

 

From Vickie:  “There are three things that really stand out to me in this program. 1) I love Shaun T. He is an amazing athlete and professional fitness trainer. He keeps me motivated, and, well, focused! I also love that these workouts are designed to be done five days a week and are only 25 minutes each. They fit in my day very well. And 3) the modifier who does a low-impact version of the moves has enabled me to do this difficult program and gradually work up to some of the full versions of the moves. 

 

“My body has really been toning as I do this program, and the inches are melting from my waist line. Love it! If you’re doing this program or any workout routine, I encourage you to do what I do and keep track of your workouts online at Team Beachbody. I like to watch my workout calendar fill up in the month. I also keep track of my stats and track my progress in weight loss, inches lost, my decreasing blood pressure and more. You can set up a free account through my Beachbody website.”  http://www.beachbodycoach.com/heartsongfit
