Here are a few pictures of our ice storm.... I also hope you enjoy the video of John and coconut. He went to the grocery store with me and I never know what we will leave with.. this time, it was a coconut. So what do you do when you are iced in.... I guess play with a coconut.
As you can see, it went as planned.
We did get some milk out the next time around...can't seem to load the video. Did you know that Coconut milk is gross warm... and a little less gross cold?
So here is absolutely ridiculous video of John and me.... (more ridiculous of me) working out on day 14. Everyday we move the furniture out of the way and make our dog sit on the couch while we dance around. I enjoy days when we could do the workout together. Most of the time, I do it while John is at work and he does it whenever he can. Some days, we have to do it separately because we have only one set of weights.
The program is good and I will explain more about it in the 30 day update. (They tell us to take pictures every 30 days).
Day 14 is called Kenpo X which is like kickboxing and karate combined. This is my least favorite day because, well- I can't do it right.
Here is Tony Horton who leads all the videos.... John likes him because he reminds him of a good friend of his.....Crazy.
Okay... I can't believe I am posting this.....
Oh goodness! What makes the video even more silly, is that we turned the music off so it would not be so loud in this video...
There is music on the P90X video, but John likes to use his own music. There is option to turn P90x music off and just hear the work out cues... pretty cool...except when you are making a personal video like this one. Enjoy laughing at us!
We woke up this morning to what I thought was a little bit of snow but was actually ICE piling up. Crazy! John of course had to go in to save the world. Thankfully, even though my job is up there on the Glamour scale....it was cancelled...and maybe for two days! STORM OF THE CENTURY!!!!
It's just to bad that I can't run outside.. man I REALLY wanted to do that! :-)
I will just have to sit inside with my cup of hot chocolate.....and clean the house.....mmm, maybe I will run.
So we bought it..... I have been watching this infomercial for at least a year now. I am a big sucker for infomercials. I think in my life time I have fallen for the ploy maybe once....I can't remember what it was.... I think I was by myself at home and I took my moms CC and ordered something. (Mom did you know this?)
Anyway....we bought THE P90X! For those of you who do not know about this program, let me splain. It is 90 days of intense Muscle Confusion......do I sound like them? Anyway, It comes with a nutrition plan for those who have their own personal chef and a gazillion dollars. But, I figure if I am at least do something.... I am heading in the right direction.
I will post from time to time how we are doing. Don't think that I am about to post my before picture. If the program works I might....MIGHT post a before picture.
I do have goals:
1) I have lost muscle from not dancing everyday....rebuild my muscles.
2) Get in good running shape for the half marathon in April.
3) John and I are taking pictures in March with our wedding photographer......I don't want to look far off from the wedding weight pictures......unless it is better!
4) Actually see if I can push myself and not be lazy.
5) Get back into some kind of Climbing shape.
We started the program on January 14Th so we will be RIPPED (yea right) by the middle of April????? Oh goodness.
John and I have been enjoying watching the show Planet Earth. We record it...or DVR it every Sunday night when it comes on the Discovery Channel. We find ourselves turning out the lights, turning up the volume and loosing ourselves in awesome panoramic views of places I will never go. We sometimes look at each other and ask, "Are we still cool because we are watching this and actually learning something?" We say yes, but I think we are okay with knowing that this question no longer matters in life. ----This is what non-cool people say.---
Anyway, if you have not seen it, it is worth watching. It reminds me of how creative my God is. How many random creatures can He create to live in a cave...in sulfuric acid....some with no with no eyes??? Crazy!
Has anyone seen any episodes? Which is your favorite?
These were the words repeated by John and I as we guided Jim and Yvonne (IN-laws) through their first game of Guitar Hero World Tour. They were reluctant at first, but I know they had fun.
"This is fun!" JIM
See- they had fun. Here are some pictures of John explaining some basic Wii instructions, one of them learning what how to hold the remote, and some actual playing time photos. They are playing as I blog...I just cold not wait....and yes.....John is wearing Wii PJ pants. Thanks MOM!
