Movie Night


Saturday night,
family of five
in one family room.

Movie night.

New offering:
Jillian Michael's 30 Day Shred.



Twenty minutes, beginner level.

Twenty minutes later:

One purple-faced mother,
gasped for air
and trying to drink water,
simultaneously.

One father,
gasping for air,
wheezing the words
"I think I'm gonna puke."

Three kids,
running around them
and laughing joyously.

Youth..
it's wasted on the young!

I am laughing my head off at this! I can't tell you how many times I resolve to do somebody's skinny biotch workout only to collapse on the floor as if I am DYING in the first five minutes! I HATE TO EXERCISE!!!!!

What were you thinking??? Clearly, you weren't. MOVIE NIGHT--you remember, popcorn, soda for the kids, something harder for the adults, kid rated movie. NOT Jillian!LOL! Hope you are well today my friend!

Ok so my original comment didn't show. Whatever....I was saying...My Saturday night rocked compared to yours. Family game night. Cut throat game of Sorry!

LOL! That is hilarious. I agree that is not my kind of movie night but I'm sure the kids enjoyed watching. My husband has been shredding while I've fallen off the bandwagon. Maybe now that I'm doing less blogging, I should get back to shredding. Hmmm...so tempting. Not!
