NROL - Week 8 - Tuesday

I'm exhausted and off to a late start with my blog today. I really don't feel like typing anything - I just want to go to bed. My son's bedtime isn't for 2 more hours. I don't think I can make it.

Today I did the Turbo Jam 20 Minute Workout and a Tabata. Well, I started a Tabata and learned I can't really jump fast/hard/heavy in my living room without crap falling off shelves, so I made one round of jumping before starting over with the regular Turbo move I've been using. I didn't think I'd get through the 8 rounds, but I did, even though I could definitely feel myself losing steam toward the end.

6:40 AM - apple & cottage cheese

9:45 AM - chicken breast, cheese, salsa, sour cream on tortilla, coffee w/ cream & Splenda; this was so satisfying, even without chipotle sauce (which I must get more of, by the way - the spice is fantastic)

12:00 PM - I went to a friend's house to watch a movie, and she had Tostitos Scoops w/ salsa and a veggie tray w/ dressings. I had some Scoops w/ a little bit of shredded cheese - I'll admit, I had more than one severing, probably closer to two. My friend commented that "they are low fat, so you don't have to feel as guilty!" I decided, and even said, that I wasn't going to feel guilty AT ALL for eating those tortilla chips. And you know? I don't! I also stuffed myself with vegetables for the rest of the afternoon. I'm very proud of myself for the way I handled those chips. But as a result, I won't have numbers today, because I can't even estimate how much I ate in terms of vegetables (carrots, cucumbers, green peppers).

5:55 PM - sliced turkey; I gobbled this down (no pun intended) while waiting for my chicken to finish baking

6:25 PM - chicken sandwich w/ mustard, mayo, cheese & turkey bacon; probably a bit much, but I'm starving and just want to eat and go to bed

Way to go on the tostito scoop things!!!! That is EXACTLY what a "normal" eater would do! No guilt (why should you feel guilty?) and then you ate a bunch of veggies to compensate...that's awesome! It's ok to indulge a little because the rest of the time you eat really well.

Let me know what you think of the pancakes! I will say that I don't eat them without some Splenda sprinkled on top. I told my best friend how good they were and she thought they were disgusting. However, when she tried them when I put Splenda on mine she thought they were good. I REALLY love them but for some odd reason they don't stick with me as long as i'd like...I feel like they should for 290 cals though...???

Oops!! I meant to say that about the pancakes...

I throw everything into the blender (I do the cottage cheese & liquid egg whites first) then the oats and blend it all up. Pour onto griddle/frying pan and cook until done. Flip whenever they start to bubble. :)
