NROL - Week 19 - Wednesday

I'm pretty bummed. The main grocery store I use doesn't carry my light table cream any more. None of the other stores carry it, or anything similar. I liked it because it was cheaper and had fewer calories than heavy cream. Now, I could either start using heavy cream and use half a serving or I could use skim milk, which I buy anyway. I don't really care for skim milk in my coffee. I don't know what to do. If I buy heavy cream and go with half a serving, it will be fewer calories than my light table cream and last twice as long. Or I could skip the expense altogether and use the milk. Not an appealing option. Maybe I'll try the heavy cream and see how that goes. First my bread (which I found at our other grocery store, thank goodness) now my cream!!

A new item I discovered today - Swiss Miss Diet Hot Chocolate. Only 25 calories, 4 carbs (1 fiber), 2 protein. With a tablespoon of cream, it's killer! More expensive than I like, so it will only be a once in a while thing here.

Today was HyperIA, 4x10 with 60 second rests. I like this better than 3x15 with 30 second rests but not as much as any form of 5x5. And I swear, I am sick to death of lat pulls. If Santa is good to me and brings me an Iron Gym (or builds me one), I am going to swap out immediately for negative chin/pull ups. My homemade lat pull contraption is so awkward and I just get sick of it. I hate lat pulls.

[superset w/ full rest]:
db incline press 4x10x20
Yates row 4x10x60

[superset w/ full rest]:
db shoulder press 4x10x15
wide grip lat pull down 4x10x68 (I absolutely have to drop the weight next round - I had to pause after every 3-4 reps)

[superset w/ full rest]:
bb close grip bench press 4x10x40
high pull 4x10x30

Swiss ball crunch 3x15x20

12:40 PM - three-cheese chicken quesadilla

4:40 PM - fried chicken wings & mixed vegetables

7:35 PM - broccoli; I ate an entire 12 ounce bag of broccoli, hoping it would fill me up enough

8:30 PM - hot chocolate w/ cream; I deliberately waited until close to bedtime to drink this, so I'd only drink one cup

I wish I could help you with the cream thing! I drink tea and prefer it with skim milk...but I'll use creamer if I have to when I'm out.

A whole bag of broccoli?? Why only that?

I so wish I liked that diet swiss miss stuff but it made me gag...It's low in cals though and great if you do like it! I go with the Kroger brand No Sugar Added HC...tastes VERY good! But for some reason the Harris Teeter brand is not so good..LOL..I guess I am very picky about my HCs??

It was getting late and I didn't want anything really high calorie. Sometimes I need volume. I usually eat a whole bag of broccoli with 6 ounces of chicken but I didn't have any made.

I didn't like the hot chocolate, either. I posted my blog before I actually drank it, because I knew if I posted that I had one cup, I'd only have one cup.

Check Walmart, Big Lots, or your local Mexican store for the table cream.

I've looked. They don't have what I need either.
