Why Family Movie Night Should Be a Staple and How to Make it Happen

I’m not a big fan of TV, and because of this our family functions a little different than most. First, we have one TV in our house. That’s right, one for a family of five. My wife wants to add another, but as of right now I think we are fine. Second, we do not have cable TV.

Some friends of ours recently let us borrow the workout videos Insanity and P90X.  We decided we wanted to get in better shape, and if we were going to do it then why not challenge ourselves.  Well…both sets of DVDs are sitting under our TV collecting dust as I write this.

I’ll be honest, I have been a little scared to start.  What seemed fun at first didn’t sound as fun after I read about it, and learned why it is called Insanity. I want to have fun with my fitness activities.
