Aerobically Challenged

In my ever continuing efforts to get fit, I borrowed a workout DVD from a friend. It is meant to be a 20 min. effective workout.
Now, just to clarify, I am not an avid fan of exercise. I like the THOUGHT of exercise but actually doing it? Nah. Hence the shape I am in now.
And to clarify some more, I am not very graceful. I don't have a groove thang. ( I can't afford one).

But. The Bridget Jones in me is determined to workout to this DVD at least 3 times a week. So, the first day I couldn't even get half way through it! Not because I was too winded or hurting but because I can't figure out the moves! I am aerobically challenged to say the least.

The big kids are off at school while I am doing this and there is no way on God's green earth I am letting my husband see me. It's just me, Jarrett and Jeven. Now, the kids were at first upset that I turned off their cartoons but as soon as I started trying to do this video, things looked up. "Look! Mom is trying to make it rain in the house!"

But, I tried again today and made it further. I figure the wrong movements are better than NO movements. As I am doing my best Kathy Smith, Jeven very quietly and calmly walks up to me and says "Mommy. Stop it."

I felt so sorry for him. That he was subject to his mother's pathetic-ness.

It's funny. He says the same thing when I sing.

I know I am a little behind the times but we just recently started watching The Office. LOVE IT!!
We had heard it was a great show but honestly, we didn't want to have another show we HAD to watch. But, someone gave us a DVD of season 1 and we're hooked.

So, to quote my new favorite character, Dwight:
Question: Do you know just how far an entire roll of dental floss will unroll?

I do! It goes out of the bathroom, down the hall, under the recliner, around your brother's foot, (several times) and through the kitchen and under the kitchen table. Where you sit and wait for your mother to find you and freak out.
