NROL - Week 17 - Tuesday

I know I said I wasn't going to blog today but I need to in order to keep my sanity. My decision to NOT measure and track today is making me crazy. All I can think about is food, even though I'm not doing anything else differently. I just ate a normal breakfast (apple & cottage cheese) and I'm drinking coffee (there will be lots of coffee today - I have to drive all night), and I'M STARVING!! I'm really worried that my decision is going to lead to a free-for-all. I don't feel like I have any accountability. Frustrating.

I did the Turbo Jam Cardio Party Mix 2 again today. I ran out of steam about halfway through, but got a second wind. I really, really want to take the dvd with me but I doubt I'll get to do it. I have a bunch of exercise videos on my laptop, including Slim In 6 - maybe I will bring my laptop and do those. I'll can do them in the guest room, I think. I wasn't planning on taking my computer. Or maybe I will just relax. Yes, I will relax. I'll be hitting it hard when I get back Monday. Ok, that's settled.

I'm watching more of the P90X stuff and it's crazy how many different names a single exercise can have. Bulgarian split squats, as I know them from New Rules of Lifting, are called Balance Lunges here. I've seen them termed differently elsewhere. There's an arm exercise on P90X that I know by a different name (and of course, I can't remember either name right now). Nuts! No wonder people get confused.

Foods packed for the trip:

turkey sandwiches
mozzarella string cheese

Sound ok? I hope so.

I made it 2 hours before needing to eat again. Turkey sandwich. I feel like I'm still hungry. Ugh! Will I ever be able to stop measuring and tracking??? I'm making good choices and watching my portions but all I want to do is eat!! I had some carrots, a string cheese, and a yogurt.

Oh, and I've decided to take my laptop with me and do one of the Slim in 6 cardio workouts Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. I'll be on the road again Sunday.
