NROL - Week 16 - Thursday

Turbo Jam Cardio Party Mix 2 today. It was fun, but something Chalene says during the workout bothered me. She talks about exercise releasing endorphins and putting people in good moods and all that. I don't feel that. I don't feel anything after working out.

10:40 AM - chicken breast w/ mashed sweet potato; I got off to a late start with eating today because I had a bunch of errands to run this morning and wanted to get them out of the way; no good excuse - I certainly could have grabbed something

11:00 AM - coffee w/ cream & Splenda; still throwing in an extra half teaspoon of granular

2:40 PM - turkey sandwich w/ mayo & mustard

3:30 PM - granola bar; my son brought home some pumpkin flax granola bars made by Nature's Path and wow! I took a nibble of on, expecting it to be horrible and I ate the whole thing; it's very good but not too terribly filling; I'm anxious to see if it triggers any cravings

5:45 PM - chicken curry w/ cauliflower

8:30 PM - Lima beans; I wasn't really hungry but my calories were low and I'll be up for a few more hours, but in bed

CHicken curry w/cauliflower sounds sooooo yummy!!! Was that your own recipe? I'm a stickler for ethnic foods. :)

I ate my oatmeal w/o Splenda today and it was fine. I do prefer it with but it was ok without. Not sure I could go w/o if I ate oats & CC though..? It's probably more difficult to stop taking Splenda in coffee though because I know it was tough to switch from tea w/sugar to tea w/o. You get used to it fairly quickly though!

It's not my own recipe. I got it from my best friend, who got it from her grandmother. I think this is how it goes - it's in my MasterCook program but I can't bring that up right now.

1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped apple (I actually use celery though)
3 tbs butter
3 tbs flour
2 tsp curry powder (or to taste)
3/4 cup milk
3/4 cup chicken broth

Cook the onion & apple (or celery) in the butter. Add the flour and mix it well. Stir in milk and broth. Simmer until thick, stirring often.

I think it "covers" a pound of chicken.
