Well, unfortunately we haven’t had a strong relationship with the  lifestyle guru that has befriended Ryan and Adam.  You know the guy–he goes by the name “Will Power.”   For us, Mr. Power is more like our distant cousin that we’ve truly been meaning to contact; however, we’ve  lost his cell number, can’t find his address and just haven’t had time to friend him on social media.   Yeah, Brooke and I are more of the we’ll get to it tomorrow… Netflix…We really don’t enjoy the gym…Netflix…Too much homework….Netflix…Loads of grading to do…Netflix….
