An Entertaining Day One

Sunday, May 20, 2012

Yep, I am another that saw Arthur's video, and it got me thinking. So I watched it again, and I starting thinking some more. Then I looked over to my oldest child who's nine years old and over 100 pounds, and I brought him over to watch it too. He watched it, and I asked him what he thought about it. He said he thought it was cool. I asked if he thought we should do that together, and he said yes!

I went straight to google and started my search. I came across the site. Now, I'm a single mom of 2 boys, my oldest 9 and my youngest 7 *who is also legally blind*. To say funds our tight in our house is an understatement, and I'll admit to being discouraged when I saw the cost of the packages. When one doesn't even know how they are coming up with two pennies to rub together, I may know what i have one month, but the next, I just never know if the funds are there or not.

But, I knew this could be the key for both my oldest and I, and...well, i'm stubborn. So I went to ebay to search for it as well. JACKPOT!!! I found someone selling the YRG DVDs. *sigh of relief* Then BONUS, there's the 50+ program, well, I knew damn well I had over 50pounds to lose, and while still a bit more than I could afford at the time, it was also something I couldn't afford to NOT do either. And order it, I did.

WOW, talk about fast shipping, I ordered the 50+ YRG video on ebay on the 17th and it was in my mail box yesterday!! Originally, I had planned to start up everything Monday night. Well, there was no time like the present so we did our first workout last night.

Now, there's the clearing of the living room hilarity to get things "ready". Oldest *Sebastien* and I, watch the first part. We were anxious but excited. He was excited, which made me very glad. Then we got to the workout, grace is NOT my child's middle name, and he toppled into me a few times. The best part being when our little puggle dog would decide to clean Sebastien's face while He was doing some of the moves. And I do believe I only cursed a few times, and there may have been more than one "you've got to be kidding me", BUT we made it through the 20min workout. LONGER than, yes I timed it. Overall, there was much laughter, great bonding...........and I made it through the damn program!!!

I DID IT!! Day ONE down....however, many it takes left to go!
