The boys got . . .

The boys got this huge work-out thingy from Bubba for Christmas. They work out every day right after school. It has all kind of different exercises that you can do. There is a name for the thing, but I don’t feel like looking it up. Anyway, my daughter decided that we were going to work out every night. 

We have an elliptical trainer and a gazelle thingy too. So I start off on the gazelle while she does her initial weight stuff, usually about 15 minutes, then I spot her when she actually benches. Then we switch places. So, I was so excited last night, I actually added weight to the bar when I did the bench pressing part. So the bar weighs like 45 pounds or something and when I first started I could barely pick the damn thing up. 

I know, I am a wuss, right? Anyway, last night we added a 5 lb weight to each side. My arms were noodles, but I did it! My least favorite thing to do of all the things we do is put my arms in those holders up there and hang and then curl my knees up to my chest. That is hard and I start screaming at about number 2. Anyway, so after we do all the weight thingies we jump back on the gazelle or the elliptical for another 15 minutes or so.
