Let's see how I did:
Situps = 3060 (98.7%)
Pushups = 400!! (100%)
Not bad! Anyone else following along at home? If so, leave a comment and let me know how YOU did!
For April, we are going to keep situps and pushups and add in squats (15 a day). With the addition of the squats, we are going to decrease the number of situps per day to 50 -- otherwise the goal gets pretty hard to reach. Now, there is no penalty for OVER-doing it, so if you feel like still doing 100 a day, go for it.
To re-cap, the goals for April are:
1500 Situps (50/day)
450 Pushups (15/day)
450 Squats (15/day)
If you need any visuals to help you with these excersizes, please see the links below:

They are certainly European in their thinking of the human body. We passed a shop that had picture of women's underwear on models without tops in the windows. We also passed the 'museum of erotica' further down the walking shop street we toured yesterday. I can say I think America needs to go this route. :)
I'm learning a few words today so I don't feel so out of touch. Thank you = tak, one = en, welcome = velkomenn, erotica = erotica (lol), happy hour = happy hour (j/k) it is actually a long phrase that starts with doppel (double).
We also made a trip to our plant in Avedore just south of here on the ocean front. The side of the plant that faces the ocean is one big wall of windows - all three stories. It is quite the place. We only were given a quick tour since it seemed that no one works there (at least we could not find anybody we knew). We work tomorrow and are supposed to get the grand tour. We met up with a couple of other Hansen employees tonight for dinner at a steak place called hereford's. The smallest steak was 200 g (about 7 oz) at it was $40 US. Everything here is pretty expensive and then taxed at 20-25% on top of that. But we found out we can be reimbursed the tax when we leave if we keep all our receipts (which we were doing for the expense reports anyway). There are a few items that are priced pretty close to US prices like leather items (gloves, jackets), but everything else is way over priced.
Sorry no really good pictures today. Talk to you tomorrow it is bed time now (11pm). Got to get up at 7 am so we can catch the train to work.

Max left Saturday afternoon, flew through Atlanta and on to Denmark. He got in pretty late/early -- so he just emailed and texted me to let me know that he had made it safely. I did also get a chance to talk to him this afternoon, just before they headed out to get a bite to eat. Anyways, my tech savvy hubby has already taken the opportunity to send me photos from Denmark...not just once, but TWICE. So, I thought I'd share them with you...and his emails (minus some of the sappy stuff). :)
It is 1600 (4pm) here. (**Note from Stef: I love that Max has 'switched' himself to military time all of a sudden**). We just got back from walking around a small part of the city. I took a few shots of what we have seen so far. It is cool and weird all at the same time. They have mix of old building with LG signs and McDonald's and an over-abundance of 7-11's about every 5 shop fronts. Here is one of the many cool big churches:
Sounds like he's having fun so far! I'll post the photos as he sends them, so stay in tune!

Mommy taught lil Max to find his 'pee-pee' (don't even ask). Now look what happens when we ask him where his pee-pee is...

What just happened to me? Why does my face feel funny?
Hey mom -- lets go over here -- all the kids are doing it!
See my jingle bells??!!?
Walking and jingling...
Ok, yes, SOME mommies were also getting whiskers put on. I am NOT one of those mommies. Bad Stef...Sorry, Max...
Back home. One last silly smile before washing the whiskers away....
