Bun errr...um...Bunny Fitness



We know what you did. You were naughty for two entire months weren't you? You ate lots of cakes and candies and pies. You ate too much of everything didn't you?


It was fun though wasn't it? Dohhhh! hee,hee,hee ;)


Well now it's time to get back in shape and get healthy. Today we want to share a few simple things  to help you stay fit and trim. Feel free to practice these at home. 

Please note, we are not responsible and cannot be held liable for injuries, mishaps or other things you might do to yourself. You're on your own. 



That being said, let's start with some simple stretches shall we?



First, lift your leg, point your toe and stick it in your ear. Hold for a count of five. Please note, you may encounter ear wax.



Remove your toe from your ear and place it on your chin. Hold for a count of five. This is also an excellent time to see if you removed ear wax from your ear. If so, you can just lick it off.


What do you mean "eewwwww?"  It's just ear wax. We all have it. I'm keeping it real people, keeping it real.



Moving along. Now place your front feet on the hay box with your back feet slightly apart on another box. Push off the hay box with your front feet three times and then hop up on the hay box, or if you don't feel safe, simply hop back down to the floor.

This next exercise is best with a buddy. Using your nose, shove the ball to your buddy. At this point,  you may take a bite out of the ball before shoving it to your buddy. Now place the ball in the basket. You may take a bite of the basket as well.

Ok, let's move on to some ear tai chi. Stand up and point your left ear to the ceiling while your right ear points to the floor.

Now gently lay down and at the same time spread your ears apart in opposite directions.

Turn your head to the left while raising your left ear up and lowering your right ear. Repeat this routine three times being mindful of your breath.

This exercise is excellent to stretch your neck, head and get a side rub at the same time. You get the picture.

Next, lay on the floor and cross your left legs under your right legs. Let your eyes roll to the back of your head and play dead for a few minutes.


Speaking of playing dead, meditation is good for your busy mind. Meditate at least 15 minutes a day.

Yesssss....meditaaaaaate.

It's also very important to follow a healthy diet. You need to eat lots of greens as you need the fiber.


You may be tempted to eat processed cardboard carbohydrates, but you must resist.

You have come too far to fall off the basket now.


You can do it!

Now that you have had a good workout, it's time to cool down. Lay on your belly with your legs out to the back.

 Point your toes and stretch them as far as you can.

At this point we also like a nice rub down.

Take a well deserved break, but remember to drink plenty of water!


                                  I'm exhausted. Me too. 

We wish you all the best for a healthy new year.

Your friends,

Harrington and Hannah

Good Morning and thank you for your exercising program. You two are very special to your momma. I have enjoyed catching up with you this morning. We are cold today. We have warmed up to about 9 degrees. They say we will get to 50 by the weekend. Heatwave. You two take good care of momma. Hugs and Prayers from Your Missouri Friend Shirley

I've never had pet rabbits, but they sure make me want to share my home with a couple. What a sweet post. Thank you for sharing them with us.

So darn cute. It's amazing what we can learn from our furry friends. Loved it!

Absolutely precious! Thanks for the workout. I nailed the playing dead one :)

Mr. Mick and Jade said...

Mr. Mick says he is worn out just from watching all that hard work. He says he will need some rest, treats and a full-bunny massage before he can continue with his day, and he recommends that H & H get the same. :)
