We can do it, yes we can!

Chris and I started the exercise Program P90X several months ago.  It’s a 90 day program and we were supposed to be done sometime in November.  A little after a month through the program, we both got sick.  After not working out for a week, it was very hard for us to start up again.  It was really hard to be motivated for it, especially since the workouts were an hour long, 6 days a week.  We looked into something more cardio based to start off with and found Insanity.  It’s a 60 day program and we’re on week 2.  The workouts are only 40 minutes and a lot more intense.  P90X seemed to be more for building muscle where as this one seems to be more for losing weight.  We plan on starting P90X back up again once we finish Insanity.  I’ll keep you updated on how it’s going.  We have our fit test next Tuesday.  Hopefully the results are positive (goes without saying, but still had to be said). 

For Thanksgiving, we had planned to go to Portland to visit Chris’ Aunt and Uncle.  That didn’t happen because of the fact that we got snow a couple of days before and we live on top of a hill.  The snow finally started to melt the afternoon of Thanksgiving, but by then it was too late to make it.  We’re planning on having Christmas dinner with them.

My dad and sister are picking up a chocolate lab puppy for us tonight!  My dad’s going to raise it until we get back from Belfast.  We have our reasons for doing it this way than getting a puppy when we get back.  We’re hoping his chocolate lab (who’s 14 months) will teach it good manners.  We’re also hoping they’ll wear each other out.  More to come later (with adorable pictures!).
