Weeeeeeeee’re Back!

Shtinky and I have been bad…very, very bad….our little “hiatus” is now over….Brenna was stuck in the “Snowageddon” so, yeah..in conclusion…a break was in order. I did ice skate the other weekend with some friends (pictures will be up soon) at the Cleveland Heights Rec Center, which, according to my father “the legendary Olympic speed skater Apollo Ono skated at last year..and even worked out in the gym!” My dad even took a break from pumping  iron and told him how much he admired him-well, he said hello.

Anyways…….Brenna did some extreme shoveling…I had planned on luging in honor of the Winter Olympics, but I have decided that luging is out of the question because of the Olympic Luger who died. I don’t think so! Plus, the closest Luge place I found was in Michigan. Oh well…….Luging really did look fun, but apparently there are street luging places all over Cleveland. I think even Ignatius does it!

This week Shtinky (Brenna for those who are still struggling) is going to CANCUN, MEXICO! This blog is going to be going international! We are thinking soccer? Soccer is Mexico’s # 1 sport and I wouldn’t mind playing a game myself. Perhaps I could organize one…soccer in the snow?       ¿Sí?

In honor of the upcoming Winter Olympics (starting Friday, 12 February (http://www.vancouver2010.com/)) and the recent weather in both fair Cleveland and D.C. Shmelly and I have decided that this week would be winter sports week.  I LOVE the Winter Olympics, maybe even more then the Summer Olympics, (I am fully aware that this comment may make some people roast, particularly Jason) and am super excited to get out there are do some serious ice skating (if I can still remember how to stand on skates), skiing (is it bad to rock jeans on the slopes?), and possibly a little luge action if I can find a place that let’s people sign away their lives to try it.  Keep your fingers crossed that Shmelly and I make it out of this challenge with minimal bruises and no broken bones!

***Update on other challenges***

Shtinky:  I am still drinking 8 glasses of water a day but hitting the bathroom a little less; I am currently 25% done with my Presidential Challenge and can taste the bronze medal; and I decided I am going to finish my 15oz bottle of Bragg Apple Cider Vinegar if it kills me.  As for the triathlon training, I plan on kicking it in gear around mid February.

Shmelly: I have been drinking more water than I usually do, but I haven’t lived up to the 8 glasses a day in weeks, sad to say. I’m going to get into the habit of drinking more-I am! Also, not to be all slacker like, but I quit the Braggs two days before the challenge was over. I just felt like it was a placebo. I also wonder why an apple or apple juice/cider can’t replace the Braggs. Why does it have to be vinegar? Does having it age really make a difference? Perhaps I should research this..anyways…I continue to do the Presidential fitness award. I went to the gym practically every day last week and plan on going tonight. Maybe I will also join Brenna in finishing the Braggs……….what do people think..yay or nay??
