100 Push Ups: Week 2 Exhaustion Test

After the Conferences on Saturday, I put my kids to bed, then did some last minute Internet time wasting, before I remembered that I needed to do my exhausion test. After the 2nd week of the One Hundred Push Ups program, you are supposed to test yourself.  While it is priimarily to see where you belong during week three, I used it to psyche myself up and help me to see that I am improving. I didn’t want to psyche myself out by counting them.  So, I had my wife count for me.  I was afraid that by knowing that

100 Pushups: Week 1, Day 1

As I told you last week, I am going to try and do 100 pushups after 6 weeks of preparation.  Honestly, I don’t know that I really believe that I can do 100 pushups, but I am willing to give it a try.  I know believe and I can…  Well, we will see what happens in 6 weeks.

They offer great recipes for those who buy their

We ended up leaving on Monday afternoon about 3:30pm. That was a lot later than I had originally planned, but I could get myself moving on Saturday to get the trailer packed and ready. So, we did most of the packing on Monday. After we got to camp, we decided to do tinfoil dinners first, because the dutch oven meals were still frozen. It was nice. We then settle in earlier than usual

Welcome Home PandaMae

Last year I went with my oldest daughter to Girl’s Camp.  Back then I thought it was for her.  I felt that it would make it easier for her to be away from the family for a whole week. Let me explain, in the LDS Church many there is an organization for the teenage girls.  It is called the Young Women’s organization.  It’s primary focus is teaching the girls the gospel of Jesus Christ.  But the “young women” often learn life skills and have fun. Each year as part of the learning about Christ, and having fun, and learning life
