  1. I am mixing things up a bit .. here is my usual week .. 30 - 45 mins of cardio per day, treadmill, elliptical, or rowing machine 30 minutes of strength training 2 to 3 times per week and one of the following Monday: Pilates 1 hour Tuesday: Aqua aerobics Wednesday: Body Works w/Abs Thursday: Aqua aerobics Friday: Body Works w/Abs Saturday: Aqua aerobics I also have an exercise ball in front of my tv and if I decide to sit and watch a show I do crunches or wall squats. My girls (teens) challenge me to see who can do more, of course they love outdoing their mom. I am sure that you guys are going to be beautiful when the special day comes. Don't stress about it too much!
  2. I know everyone is different and it depends on how much you have to lose and how much you weigh, etc ... but, I lost 4 inches in my waist in about 7-8 weeks. I am loving the exercise.
  3. I just got two of these DVD's last week. I hate them! Make sure that you want to try them because this company has a No Return policy. By the time you roll your shoulders back, tuck your butt, suck in your stomach, point your toes in, roll your knees out ... you can't remember what you are supposed to do next. I took them to work and my 3 office mates don't like them either.
  4. Does anyone have one that is water resistant that can be used during water aerobics? I would like to get one but not sure that I will be able to justify the cost if I can't wear it during all of my workouts.
  5. Oh goodness! You do look awesomer! You get a "I'm So Proud" award!

  11. INGREDIENTS: 2 cups cooked whole wheat couscous 1 cup chopped cucumber 1 cup chopped tomatoes 1/2 cup chopped red onion 1/3 cup fresh mint, chopped Juice of two large lemons (I used limes) 1 tbsp olive oil PREPARATION: Combine couscous, cucumber, tomatoes, onion and mint in a large bowl. Whisk together lemon juice and olive oil. Pour over couscous salad and stir well. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
  12. 6 large carrots, peeled and cut into 11⁄2-inch chunks 2 large onions, halved and thinly sliced 4 long strips lemon zest 4 sprigs fresh dill, plus 2 tablespoons chopped 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt, plus additional for seasoning 4 bone-in chicken breast halves, skin removed (2 1/2 to 3 pounds) 2 cups chicken broth Put the carrots, onions, lemon zest, dill sprigs, and olive oil in a 7-liter pressure cooker. Season the vegetables with the 1/2 teaspoon salt and the chicken with salt, to taste. Pour the broth in the pot, then nestle the chicken meat side down on top of the vegetables. Close the pressure cooker lid, bring the pressure up to high (this can take up to 10 minutes). Adjust the heat, if necessary, to maintain an even high pressure for 10 minutes. Remove from the heat and use the quick-release method to bring down the pressure. Stir the chopped dill into the chicken stew. Put 1 chicken breast in each of 4 large soup bowls and ladle some carrots and broth over each one.
