Just sitting here enjoying an ice coffee with this good old south Alabama weather. I am thankful that we have been having more rain than usual so it has kept it a little cooler than normal.
I did not get to make church this morning because my little man was sick. I think it is just a stomach bug. He has been sick since last night, but is beginning to feel better so it probably is a bug.
I posted yesterday about my weight update. In that post I mentioned about walking with Leslie, that is Leslie Sansone. I am greatly enjoying her aerobic walking video that I have. My husband has also come on board with me and has been walking. My son has walked more than my daughter. When we begin our new school year in August they will not have a choice. I plan to use Leslie videos for the exercise part of our P.E.
If any of you homeschool Moms are looking for an easy way to get in some exercise for you or your children, these videos are great. She basically uses the same aerobic moves in each video, just switches them up. The moves are not hard. Even smaller children could use them. She has some videos with Christian music in the background. I don't have any of those yet, plan to get some, but the music in the other videos isn't bad. Just a beat to get you moving. Check some of them out online. You may want to purchase some of them. Right now I only have the 5 day walk plan where you are walking a different amount of miles per day. I plan to get about 3 more of them so I can rotate them.
There are some great reviews where different people have lost a lot of weight by just using her videos. Some reviews give negative reviews because they think she talks too much during the workout. Personally, that's what makes the videos so good to me because I get so involved listening to her that I don't even realize I have already walked a mile. Before I know it one mile is gone and we are beginning another one. I have timed her aerobic miles and they all tend to last for 13 minutes per mile. Arms, legs, all body parts are moving, a great over all work out. I have added some weights to mine for some toning. Right now I use the weights separate from the video work out. In the future I hope to be able to use the weights during the work out.
We are moving slow through our books, but we are moving. Summer just seems to have so many events that it makes it hard to get in a good week of school. My motivation, "Some is better than none."
This about sums up our life right now. Hope all is well with you all.
