"One other thing I wanted to tell you is that I followed the information you provided for eating at swimming meets. Previously Chelsea used to have the wrong kind of carbs. She now does well in her pet event, but more importantly her spirits are good. She isn't as deflated and flat at the end of the day like she used to be".
