The most helpful thing I found were sauces and marinades. You can cook a chicken breast a thousand different ways with those two things. And most of them have next to no calories.

i guess is should add my 2 cents here. i allowed my hormonal eating, as i call it, to get out of control, and now my stomach feels bigger than usual. :(

guess that's it for goodies for the rest of the summer. i lose weight slooooowly.

Nice job, redkitty! And Suzi too!

I just finished another refreshing Tae Bo routine. I used exercise bands this time and it nearly killed me! Hopefully the baby will start going to bed at 8 EVERY night so I have more time to work out with DH. (It's always easier to do it with someone else).

Tae Bo sounds like it would be alot of fun, and great for working off extra frustration!!!
I felt like kicking stuff this morning.... that woulda been nice!
Do you use a DVD or go to a class?

DVD all the way. That way no one can see my terrible technique!

Really though, I like the convenience of doing it at home. I don't need a babysitter, I don't need to use gas, etc. It does lack variety though, but since I'm just getting back into it after having a baby I haven't gotten bored yet.

And yes, it is very fun! My siblings make fun of me (but ask them how much they weigh ).

I like home stuff way better too. I've got a couple DVD's I like alot, but throwing something completely different in the mix would be great!!

If you want to throw in something a little different, try this!



It's called Zumba. A friend of mine on babytalkers.com absolutely loves it. It's a bit too "daring" for me though. lol. I actually don't think I could even move my body like that!
