You don't do kenpo? It reminds me a lot of tae bo. FI and I have fun doing the work outs together. It's great bonding time.

I'm not sure what type of yoga it is Kash. This was my first attempt at doing yoga. I was not successful. Apparently I'm not that flexible because it hurt too bad and several moves I couldn't even get myself to bend into.
I prefer taebo. There is too much time spent blocking in kempo for me. I prefer to kick. I have so many taebo dvds that I don't do kempo. Mike does it though.

I just tried "billy's favorite moves" the other night (taebo). It's so funny. I was doing it with a friend & mike. Mike quickly left the room. He felt too silly with these moves. My friend & i couldn't stop laughing. We really had fun with it, but it is pretty silly.

Angela- I'm not in shape. I used to be and it's so sad for me to try to do this and struggle. You can definitely do it though. It's very hard, but doable. If I can do it, I'm sure most can.

You know what. I just read the Fitness test requirements (notice I said read and haven't actually done them) but it doesn't seem to bad.

I really need to do something. I was in decent shape last year, now the pounds are coming back. I haven't felt a "burn" in a long time. I miss that.

You can modify it to suite you. I should have explained this better. Don't do the program the way it is designed if you don't lift already. But, you can do a dvd a few times a week with lighter weights even if you are a not a lifter. I just wouldn't do it 6 days a week at first like the plan has you doing. I only work out 3-4 times a week most weeks. I really don't care to do more.

 

So you can modify this to be easier.

 

Also the really killer part is all the pushups. I don't do that dvd. thats the one that hurt my friends' backs. It's not a bad dvd. I just hate pushups.

I'm a Turbo Jam addict and I see the P90X ads on beachbody.com all the time and think that it would be great for Chris and I.

 

It definately looks hardcore, but the fact that there are so many different workouts is a good thing for me... lots of variety!

 

I love the suggestion of using the mini dvd!! Except I love to turn Turbo Jam way up cause I love the music!!

 

I think I might look into P90X after the wedding!!

 

I'm also borrowing Slim in 6 from a friend, and it's an ok workout, but that Debbie chick is just annoying to me!

is that your pug in a tux? We are having this party this weekend with the theme of "finer things." I keep photoshopping a picture of a pug in a tux onto different backgrounds for the party. I'll go look for my examples.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
