The pain in my knees just kept getting worse, so I decided to take a couple of weeks off running to see if that would help, especially since the weather was getting cold.
In the meantime, I hired a friend who is a personal trainer to help me develop a program to help me learn to do a chin up and develop some overall strength.
For this great get to know you game, each person must make three statements about themselves, one of which isn't true.
i think friends and family should play this game sometimes its really fun and you can communicate well with people around you that you dont know them that well and this game breaks the ice and it helps. I am going to tutor 7th graders this coming Saturday, 10/27/2012.My Laurel daughter is very independent and has only been asked out a couple of times.She says, "Mom, none of the girls are getting asked out on dates. - Dardanelle Golf Tournament - Best for a double date. - Tyler Kidnap/sunrise breakfast - Check with parents and roommates before undergoing this idea, kidnap partner in early hours of the morning and take them to watch the sunrise while serving them breakfast and sharing testimonies. - Rianne Make cardboard cars (you can use a refrigerator box) and you and your date go through a drive through at some burger joint in the cardboard cars! - Kera One romantic idea is to go to the first place that your parents went to on their first date. - Cristina Go 4 wheeling or have a candlelight dinner in the back tailgate of a truck. (9 holes or a full 18 would be fun too.) Have the losers of the tournament pay for dinner or a movie.Life Size "Life - We had a great time creating a life-size "Life" board game. Make sure you bring something to cover the seats in your car, or you'll have to walk home like we did! - Kimber Dress up in funny outfits and go to a restaurant and pretend to be that person. - Celeste Extreme Bowling - Bring something that spins (or draw papers out of a bag) and write different things you have to do while bowling. bowl backwards, with one foot, or with your left hand. Create a trip to another country: Go to a local travel agent and have them print off fake tickets and(or) vouchers to another country (or make your own). Also, a fun idea is while you are on your date, you can perform a fake proposal in front of everyone... - Taylor Go to the gas station and get 5 cent candies! - Emily Buy TONS of shaving cream (three cans per person), and then go to a park and have a shaving cream fight!! - Laura Go to the airport and watch the airplanes take off. Then take your date to the nearest TV rental place, set out your blanket and food and watch the TV's from the sidewalk :) - DJ Play Disney Scene it in pairs with other couples.Then decorate a room in your house like it would be in the country you choose to visit, and order or make food from that country.This works best when you give the group some time to think of their statements, and write them down if they need.Once one person makes their statements, the rest of the group must guess, or vote on, which statement is the tale. It could work well to get each group member to write down their own answers and see who gets the most correct.Once they see it can be fun, not "romantic" they get much more comfortable with the idea of dating to get to know people (versus "hanging out as boyfriend/girlfriend"). I can tell you what my 16 year old daughter does NOT want to do, and that is spend money.She has a summer job and has started to realize how much things COST.If you are unsure, at least wait until you are sure of that person's character.
