Diet and Exercise Update for those who have inquired:)

First I have to start by saying, I LOVE to read nutrition by the Bible books, health books, exercise info, but I have to say I am very selfish with my afternoon time (when the kids are having quiet play time) and I don't want to exercise then!!

So, on that note--currently I do not exercise--I just stay as active as a mom does with four kiddos(which is not enough, by the way)---, I am eating most of my carbs(fruits, any type of bread--I don't eat a lot of bread though) in the morning----I read this in a book about Body by God.

I was doing Weight Watchers from September til about April or so, but I find that I am just counting calories with that(which works by the way), but I am not necessarily eating healthy the way the Lord wants me to. You know you can eat small calories to lose weight but not eat the right things. So, I am currently trying to eat smaller portions and eat healthy, but not count calories---I know the things that have higher b/c of doing WW for so long--so this is not done without some knowledge of food. I don't want to be stuck counting for the rest of my life--I want to be disciplined in a Godly way. I am trying this method to see if I have this kind of discipline. I would still like to lose about 10-15(at max) lbs.

This week I should be getting an exercise program called Turbo Jam in the mail. My awesome working out sister in law--Jackie(click on the link to check out the programs available)--has done this program for a couple or more years now and she loves it. She actually teaches it and I have seen this help her and my other sister in law Julie too. So, it's my turn now. I am going to set a goal of doing this work out in the morning so I am not using it in the afternoon time. We shall see how it goes.

So, for all who wondered...there's my update. Thanks for asking!!

I have tried exercising at different times of day, but the ONLY way I will get it done is to do it first thing in the morning. Otherwise like you I don't want to give up my free time later on! I always feel so much better during the day if I do get up and get moving first thing. :)
