You guessed it both the boys put on weight - only 700gms between them but a gain is a gain.
Time to harden up boys. We are hitting the half way mark - remember your goals and focus on what you have to do.
We can only do so much when we only see you for 2 hours a week. It's up to you two to lift your game and get out there and train.

LOW carb, LOW fat, HIGH protein.
Not a lot of people took the warning seriously, and we are now the 3rd most OBESE nation in the developed world.
One of the quotes which stood out from the show was 'it will effect well heeled white folk' highlighting that this isn't a colour or race thing. If you choose to eat the wrong food and do little or no exercise the fat monster will jump up and BITE you, no matter who you are.
Which leads on to another side effect - DIABETES. The cases of diabetes has DOUBLED in the last 10 years in New Zealand. Scary isn't it!
So if you wont get off your butt for yourself, at least do it for your children and set a good example for them. They see Mum and Dad training and exercising and they will then think it's part of every day life, which it should be. Train and educate your self so you can pass this knowledge on to your children.

Today we gave the boys their first cooking lesson.
Nothing to hard - just an omlette for breakfast. And even though it was 3pm by the time I showed them how to make it, it didn't last long on the plate. Disappeared is seconds, accommpanied by lots of "uummmmmm" and "this is great, yum!"
They both had lots of questions concerning what they can have in the omlettle and how often they can have them.
I explained that they can have as many veges in it as they want, minus the three which they aren't allowed - potato, pumpkin and kumera.
Both the boys are highly motivated and ready to start their journey to leaner meaner healthier butchers.
WHO'S GOING TO WIN?

Cindy will be looking after the boys while they are training with TEAMTRAINING.
She has been a personal trainer for 7 years now, but has had a life time commitment to healthy living an staying fit. She is also a mother to 5 children, so keeping these two in line won't be a problem for her.
