Patrick: Yeah, I don't sweat the fasting/workout thing too much. It actually works either way. I just find I like the way I feel fasted. It's not worth losing sleep over. Regimented, but flexible. Your stair workout sounds pretty good. Back when I wrestled running stairs and all the other stuff we did on them was a big thing. Those are some killer workouts. "Mocked by his lil' girls." That's funny stuff, but I doubt that.
Saoirse: Your kids are better off. We limit how much time and what is watched. The better imagination the kids have the more they excel in other areas. My oldest is getting tested for the gifted program and it isn't from watching Hanna Montana.
