Ryley always says these Spanish words that she gets from watching Dora, but I never know what she's saying. So the other day she is at the top of the stairs and the gate is up, so she is yelling, "ayuda me, ayuda me." Well, I finally figured out that it means "help me" in Spanish and she must've gotten it from Dora or Diego. It is amazing how fast kids pick things up.
It has been really nice out lately so we have been able to go on walks and to the park in the afternoon. It feels so good to finally be outside again. I know my kids were dying of boredom from being inside all winter...and so was I. This morning it was so nice and most of the snow has melted, so I will finally be able to run outside again! Yeah!
Speaking of running, has anyone ever heard of the book The Cardio-Free Diet? I am really interested in the concept, but a little skeptical. Here is a little info:
The Cardio-Free Diet By: Jim Karas
The Cardio-Free Diet is a revolutionary four-phase program that emphasizes strength training to boost your metabolism; build lean, sexy muscles; and achieve all the same heart-healthy benefits of cardio. With just twenty minutes a day, three days a week, you can look and feel noticeably leaner, stronger, and younger than ever before. Weight loss expert Jim Karas has shaped the bodies of Diane Sawyer, Paula Zahn, Hugh Jackman, and even Oprah's best pal, Gayle King. With easy-to-follow instructions, Jim offers maximum results in minimal time -- so break free from the mindless, ineffective cycle of cardio and get the body you've always wanted!
Basically this guy Jim Karas talks about only doing strength training and no cardio. I can't imagine that, but I've heard so much talk lately about how strength training is so important. I just can't imagine being able to cut out cardio all together! I think I would rather run 5 miles than do 20 minutes of weights. I hate it, but I try to do it 3 times/week. Does anyone else think that only doing only strength training seems a little sensational??
