I had big plans...

I think she is trying to tell say "put me to bed!"
My big plans for today included a new Blog Post, errands with 2 kids (instead of 3) in tow and an endless work list.  Well I got 1 errand done then ended up at the Pediatrician with 1 respiratory infection and 1 ear infection.  Funny, just how it seemed I was getting into a routine with school starting, my routine is anything but routine.  Tis' the job of a mom:)

  2. I have two questions for you Lindsay, 1. Your older preg DVDs are in the targets where I live...when will your new ones be in stores? 2. Do you believe yoga is a good enough workout on its own or should it accompany some strength and/or cardio?

    1. Target is continuing to carry the older pregnancy DVDs. At this time they did not want the new ones. Sorry, it's up to them and not me!

      I do not believe yoga is enough of a workout if you worked out prior to pregnancy. A rounded out routine of endurance and strength is best.

  3. Wondering what your thoughts on protein bars are. Not good because they are processed or good because you get so much protein and low cal?

    1. I think certain ones are good because they are quick and pretty healthy! I end up eating a Zone Bar 3/7 mornings of my week. Just make sure they are not too calorie dense (around 200 cals), they contain fiber and not a ton of sugar. But don't eat them just because they contain protein. Most of us get enough protein throughout the day, 60-75g of protein a day is recommended and some bars have 35g.

  4. I have your CFS method DVD that I just started and I'm not sure how often I am supposed to do the workouts. Every day? I also have the boot camp DVD and that suggests every other day. So I have been doing that, and then on the off days I run 3 miles and do the CFS method DVD. Should I do the CFS one every day for best results? I just discovered your DVDs after my 4th baby and I'm so excited!

    1. That is a pretty good schedule Emily! Email Jess at themoms@momsintofitness.com and she can send you a calendar that combines CFS, Boot Camp and jogging. Congrats on #4!

  5. Hey, Lindsay. I am curious about picking a good weight for myself. I have had two babies and plan on having at least 1-2 more in the near(ish) future. Before my first I weighed 160 (I am 5'9") and then after I had her I got down to 140. I had my second 15 months ago and currently weigh 142. With all of the ups and down and feeling like I am constantly in weight loss mode I sometimes feel like I'll never be "thin" enough. I gain a lot during my pregnancies even with diet and exercise (never less then 40 lb) and so I feel an extra push to get slender in between. On your website it says my BMW is 132 which seems unattainable, so I am curious how to choose a good weight and feel satisfied? I almost feel like if I were to say "I am at a good weight" I would be making excuses for carrying a little too much. Does that make any sense? Thanks!

    1. You sound very motivated, good for you.

      Let's not look at the weight so much as you look at how you feel. Calculators cannot take into account your lean mass (muscle) so calculations are never 100% correct. Do you feel you have more to lose? Or is your body healthy and fit?

      I feel like I am not helping very much, but I really do think you need to step away form the numbers...

  6. Lindsay, I have been a follower for years! You are seriously so inspirational:) I remember awhile back reading about your plate rule..I think it was something like 1/2 the plate veggies, 1/4 of the plate main dish, 1/4 of the dish side dish..Where can I find that link on your blog. I've been searching for it but haven't seen it yet. Thanks!

    1. Ah, Kirsten, thanks!

      Yep, you got it. 1/2 plate veggies, 1/4 plate protein, 1/4 plate whatever you wish (usually a carb). And depending where you are in your daily intake or if you are breastfeeding/pregnant you will need to add a cup of milk or dairy.

  7. I just purchased one of your DVDs that was recommended for diastasis. I also enjoy doing zumba and hip hop abs but I stopped everything cold turkey for fear that I may make my condition worse by doing the wrong exercises. However I felt a lot better and more energized, but I do have a tendency to overdo it. What's safe?

    1. I personally think Zumba would be safe since most of your positions are standing up and not putting a lot of added stress on your abdominal region. And I think it will help with the transverse abdominis too. I have never done Hip Hop abs but from what I ahve seen on the infomercial I think it would be too much right now. I hope this helps!

  8. Hey Lindsay! I just stumbled onto your workout DVDs and "moms into fitness". I was on the weight loss track when I found out we are pregnant with #3. Yay! Is it realistic to think I can still tone up while pregnant?

  9. I watched your work out on you tube and was intrigued by it so I went to your blog. Very very inspiring. I had my first baby in sept 2013 and have gone one size up but the worse of it is my protruding tummy. Please advice on what routine I need to take on to go back to being my old size.
