Grayson the Monster Dog…

Friday, December 28th, 2007

grayson2-004-small.jpgSo here’s the newest addition to our family, his name is Grayson. He’s a 2 year old Neopolitan Mastiff and he’s a monster. He’s huge. But he’s so sweet and very well behaved. He obeys better than the kids and the best thing is I don’t have to wipe his tushy. Although I do wipe the drool off his mouth every so often. The only bad thing about him so far is the gas. I know it’s a change in food and water and environment but da-yam. Ok, enough about that.

I’ve not really worked out in a while. We came back from Alabama at Thanksgiving and we were all sick with a cold. Then when we were about over that we all got sick with a tummy bug. I think we’re all almost well but I don’t want to say it too loudly because the bugs are still circling the block and they just love to come in when you say “we’re all well”.

So Christmas went well, S’s school program was very cute and everytime they sang or did anything that required clapping, she took a bow. She was the only one, but she still took her bow. The full fledged, sweep your arms around, bend completely in half kind of bow. It was great. Then they both saw Santa, and nobody cried. Little J was a little hesitant, he didn’t climb up by himself but he didn’t scream when Santa picked him up. We never did get all our decorations up and didn’t even get all the decorations on the tree but the kids loved the lights and that was enough for us. I’m planing to take it all down this weekend while J is off work for a few days. With this huge creature living with us now, we’re going to have to keep our house much MUCH neater. Which I guess, isn’t a bad thing.

Speaking of which, it’s time for me to go clean a room. It doesn’t matter which room, they all need it. So I’m off. I’ll post more later. I did take Grayson for a run this morning, that was fun.

Run 400M

15 Sit-ups

10 Pull Downs 60lbs

Ok, so I haven’t posted for a while.  I did workout most of October, at least twice a week, but until today I’d not been back to the gym since the first week of November.  But I did go today.  I think my time was pretty good considering I’ve got the cold from hell. So I noticed a slight difference in the CrossFit workouts as opposed to a “regular” one. In the regular ones, my weight varies from week to week. Up a pound, down a half, up 2 pounds, down three. Always the same 4 pounds, either up or down, but never under my base weight. With CrossFit, my weight stayed the same. Haven’t got a conclusive measurement, though, I’ll do that at the first of the year. I look different, though, I can see definite muscle tone in my arms and a little in my legs.  My goal tomorrow is a 5K for time. That’s 3.12 miles. I’m shooting for anything under 30 minutes.  If I survive I’ll let you know how I did.
