Dump Station Yoga

Staying fit on the road is always a challenge.

Lack of a consistent routine. Changing locations. Inclement weather. Lack of indoor space. 

We’ve been using the Sworkit app.. You tell Sworkit how much time you have and what type of workout you want. It puts together a training circuit, shows animated clips of the different exercises, and does the countdowns for you.

Using Sworkit we’ve been able to get in 5-10 minute routines most days. Even Miranda will come and ask to borrow my phone so she can get a workout in.

So, today we were leaving a campground and had to use the dump station on the way out.  Usually there is time just spent waiting for the trailer to empty. I had this notion of using that time to get in a quick pre-drive workout…and…well..

Turns out we aren’t above a bit of potty humor here at Ditching Suburbia.

The idea quickly degenerated into renaming the various Yoga poses to suit the context.

Below are our new pose names. Feel free to comment with your own thoughts.

Keep it clean.

Well, you know - dump station clean.

    This brought tears to my eyes.  “I’m not touching anything,” is the best.

    It appears in your family, as in ours, that he is involved in production and maintenance/operations, while she is involved in production only.

    Yes - the dump station is a non-negotiable “blue job”...;)

    Love it!  Can’t convince my wife that it is one of those rare “purple” jobs either….always “blue”.

    Well, maybe now that the job comes with the benefits of doing Yoga….;)

    I can assure you that when properly negotiated the job comes with many more benefits.

    I am now doing the “Damn, I wish I’d thought of that” pose. It mostly involves facial muscles: brows knit, mouth drawn to the side in a puckered smirk.

    Well done.

    Very, very well done.

    My dump station humor involved recreating the iconic “National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation” scene from 1989.  (Warning: contains a swear word.)
