Mandi Method, Phase 2...

I have made it through month one of the Mandi Method, and now I am on to Month 2. I feel really good about the new eating habits I have formed through Weight Watchers and I will continue to post on Wednesdays about my progress in that area, however phase 2 of the Mandi Method is exercise.

For the next 4 weeks, I will be focusing on establishing and putting into place a good exercise regimine for myself. As you know I stay home with the boys during the day, but a good friend has said she would come walk or bike with me on her lunch break somedays. The biking is good because I can pull the boys behind me in their little cab, but walking will be more difficult because Walker is way past being pushed in a stroller. I may be making laps around my yard. I'm sure the neighbors will find that hilarious. I think my best option is gonna be to walk before Lon leaves for work in the mornings, but figuring out what is gonna work best is the whole goal for this month.

I plan to exercise a minimum of 4 days a week. I also want to find a good strength training program I can do from home. I know Mandi at Misses Canadian Pie does Jillian Michael's 30 Day Shred workout and likes it. Any other suggestions?

You go girl!! Good luck on getting the routine down. That's half the battle. I know you will do great.

I've done the Windsor Pilates dvd and they are pretty good. I really like the leg/butt one. All the dvd's are 25 minutes or so, so you can do it in a quick amount of time.

Good luck :)

Here's another thing that I do...it's an inhome walking program with Leslie Sansone. She's so amazing. It's easy (but challenging) and it's so great to do at home when the weather is bad or instead of laps around your yard. You can find her DVD's at Walmart or online. www.lesliesansone.com She's a Christian, upbeat, and really great. I think you'd like her. She's super encouraging. She even has a DVD with a 15-minute mile. The moves are so easy that the boys I bet would do it with you. I say that bc my mum-in-law used to babysite little kiddo's and they used to do Leslie with her.

I'm excited that this is your next phase. I find my body craving to exercise anymore. It's crazy. Even if I'm not sticking to my points as I should, I exercise and feel great. My tummy is getting flatter/firmer and my endourance is getting so much better. Good luck girl! Can't wait to hear about what you are doing!

Oh, and I learned strength training too. Even lifting some dumbells while watching tv! That's what I'm going to try to do this week.

Well... I was going to suggest the same as Misses Canadian Pie. I know I told you already about Leslie Sansone, but I really think you would love it. It is easy to do...you don't have to pack up the kiddos...it is do-able with our small challenges...now I just need to give myself the same pep talk and get back on the wagon. Christy
