don't eat and swim

Remember when they said you shouldn't eat right before swimming? And then they (whoever they are) said that it didn't really matter, you could eat and swim with no negative side effects. Well, I can tell you that you shouldn't eat right before doing tae bo. Yuck! The cardio part of my work-out is tae bo. And, my exercise time of the day is right after lunch. I put Joy and Paul on their buses, Brigham down for naps and turn on the video. Occasionally, I forget and eat lunch with the kids, and then I pay for it. So, take my friendly advice, and eat AFTER you work out. Also, a few people have asked what I am doing for toning (I really like the video) and it is Ten Minute Solutions, Target Toning. I am definitely a video at home person. And, when I did my measurements this week, I found that I had lost an inch each from the four places I measure, so I am pretty excited about the plan. Nothing like instant gratification to keep you going!

Congratulations! Not about getting sick during your workout, but for losing an inch. I wanted to thank you again (and again and again) for helping with the pillowcases. They were a hit, the girls were so excited!

Wow! An inch. When I grow up I want to be like you. I'm so impressed. I cant seem to get all 3 busy at the same time to do the same. Well except at bedtime and the same "they" said that it isn't good to exercise before you go to bed.
