Mish mash

This week, our elementary school is having a "Mother/Son Night". I saw it on the school calendar and said, "ooooo.....a Mother/Son night. How exciting! Let's go. It'll be just like Mother Boy." (If you've seen Arrested Development, you know what Mother Boy is. My boys have seen Arrested Development and so they know what it is.)

Tyler immediately yelled, "NO WAY! I'm NOT interested. It would be too embarrassing."

"Embarrassing?", I said. "It's not like I would be the only mom there. Hello. It's a Mother/Son thing. Everyone will be there with their moms, you creep." Yes, I really did call him a creep.

He said, "I don't care. I DON'T want to go." I tried coaxing him some more. No dice. I told him, "fine. I know Cameron will want to go with me. He loves his mother." I turned to him and said, "how 'bout it? We'll have so much fun together." He thought about it and for a moment it seemed that he wanted to go. He then said, " thanks. It would just be too weird." Punks.


I started P90X this morning. No, my husband didn't force me, or nag me, or anything. I decided to do it all on my own. Trust me, I'm just as surprised as you are. My current workout routine is good, but it's only going to take me so far. If I want more results, I have to do more.

In preparation, I did my fitness test last night and was pretty sure I was going to die. You have to do a heart rate test to measure how it changes from an elevated one, back to resting. In order to elevate your heart rate, you have to do jumping jacks for 2 1/2 minutes. Have you ever tried to do jumping jacks for 2 1/2 minutes? I never have. I've learned that it sucks and it sucks BIG time. Try it and see for yourself.

After torturing myself with the jumping jacks, I watched the first workout ("Chest & Back") to get an idea of what I was in for. "Chest & Back" is about 45 minutes of push ups and pull-ups. I got so nervous/scared while watching it, I literally cried. Cried. But, I did it this morning and I did the whole thing. There were a couple of different kinds of push ups that I was only able to do 2 or 3 of, but I did them. They probably weren't very pretty but, again, I did them and I don't feel that bad right now. However, Ryan tells me that tomorrow is when I'll really be able to feel them and I'll feel horrible. Great.

Yay Mother Boy!! And I totally forgot about it until you just reminded me. However--I have to go on Stake visits that night for Ward Conference so it wouldn't have mattered anyway.

I don't understand this PX90. It just seems like it makes a lot of peopple cry.

I want to watch Arrested Development, but it will have to be without my husband. He says it is too much like his life was growing up.

Good for you for actually attempting PX90!

Maybe you should tell your boys you are going to go stag and see how embarrassing THAT is! LOL.

Way to go with P90X. I cried a few times doing it. And obviously,(by the looks of my figure) I'm a P90X drop-out. But I did really like the Kenpo Karate. That was my favorite. Good luck!

Yay, I love Arrested Development! That really is too bad you couldn't have your own Mother Boy. I hope they'll cooperate sometime in the future for that. And I hope you get matching outfits. :) Good job with the working out! Really something I should do to work off all this baby weight+. Blah!

I hear P90X is a killer.

I won't tell you that I think my oldest would still go to a mother/son activity with me. He's awesome that way.
