NROL4W - Stage 1 - Thursday - Tae Bo Amped Jumpstart Cardio

I managed to get the right Tae Bo video in. It wasn't as bad as Amped Live, but it was definitely not a torcher. In 40 minutes, I only burned 165 calories (1 activity point) and I never got my heart rate into the zone. I'm so disappointed. Very few of the Tae Bo videos push me the way I like. There were one or two I did a few years ago that I liked, but I have so many that I can't remember which ones the are.

omelet w/ onion, green pepper, cheese [2 pts] & salsa
chicken breast w/ romaine lettuce, green peppers & dijon mustard dressing, butternut squash "fries"
whole wheat & flax tortilla [3 pts]

I don't know what it is, but if my son doesn't finish something he's eating, I immediately "get hungry" and want to finish it off. He had a grilled cheese sandwich for lunch and ate about 2/3 of it. Getting it into the garbage without eating it was the most difficult thing I did all day. I probably could have eaten it, and counted it, but that's not how I want to live. I don't want to me an all day snacker. I want to eat my 5-6 mini meals per day and that is it. I could not resist the rest of his wheat & flax tortilla. I counted it, but I am still disappointed. I'm even more disappointed, and angry, that I could not keep my fingers off the Chinese ribs. And then one thing led to another. You know how the story goes. I feel like I'm spiraling out of control and I have no idea how to get back.

80 ounces of water and three mugs of coffee.

Tomorrow's workout - Stage 1A5

Just take it one day at a time, Becky. We all stumble and even fall sometimes but you have to pull yourself up, dust off, and get back on track. You can do it! :)

I'm this way too. It was drilled into my head to not waste food and I do it to my kids too. I'm a member of the clean plate club and I can't change that. If they don't finish their food, I have to very quickly toss it in the trash or down the drain. I can sympathize.
