NROL - Week 16 - Tuesday

Today's exercise was Turbo Jam Cardio Party Mix 2. My husband is home with a bad back, and he was in the living room. I couldn't concentrate for the first 10 minutes, so I had to kick him out and start over. Even then, I was off, because I was in a bad mood from him distracting me in the first place.

I think I'm going to be adding some cardio. I'm pretty sedentary when I'm not exercising. I'm either on the couch watching tv or at my desk. So, I'm going to do a Walk Away The Pounds segment once a day. I'm just waiting for my dvds to get here. It's not intense and I can do it before I pick my son up from school. It's getting to cold to go outside for walks.

9:15 AM - scrambled eggs w/ taco sauce, onion & green pepper, turkey bacon, coffee w/ cream & Splenda; I added half a teaspoon of granular back into the mix - I need to rethink my strategy

12:20 PM - chicken breast w/ cheese & taco sauce on tortilla

4:10 PM - mashed sweet potato, ground beef; I ate slowly, knowing it was a high calorie meal and hoping I'd be satisfied when I was done eating; I wasn't

7:30 PM - grilled cheese sandwich; I was hungry and cold and this is my go to meal

So I had a thought about your splenda problem...at least in regards to your coffee consumption. Can you replace the splenda you use in your coffee with some DaVinci sugar-free coffee syrup? That's what I do.

I dunno...just a thought... :)

Keep up the great work!

That has Splenda in it.

I used to buy DaVinci syrups by the case from Netrition. I love the Irish Cream. But one of the reasons I switched to Capella Flavor Drops is because they don't have sweeteners.

Jess said...

Oh...I see...

I was thinking that you were having issues with the carbs in granular splenda. My bad. :)

LOL I wish that were the case - it would make things so much easier! It was a great thought, though! I'm sure you'll come across people who do have that problem and your solution is fantastic.
