The husband and I tried out the P90X chest & back DVD after my post last night – boy, am I sore today! LOTS of push-ups – I did the majority of them girly style on my knees and have the bruises today to prove it. Today’s tape was pyelometrics (lots of jumping around) and both of us worked up a good sweat.
I’ve decided to follow the exercise program with Jim, but I’m not so sure about the nutrition part. The first phase is 50% protein – ridiculous! I’m having a moral dilemma here – following it would go against everything I’ve learned as a dietitian about balance BUT I want to be supportive of the hubby. What’s a wife to do? Suggestions or advice anyone?
Moral dilemmas aside; it’s time for today’s bites…
Last night’s post-workout snack: Kashi Mighty Bites in skim milk
Breakfast cookie (1/2 cup oats, 2 Tbsp PBU, splash of Almond Breeze, 1/2 tsp cocoa powder) topped with another Tbsp of PBU – HEAVEN!
Egg substitute with reduced fat mozzarella
Salad with romaine, carrots, tofu, egg, almonds, and balsamic vinaigrette. I planned on an apple for dessert, but decided on this instead:
Lowfat plain yogurt with 1 Tbsp PBU
Microwaved rye with 1 Tbsp PBU
Stir fry with edamame, tofu, sesame oil, garlic powder, and the last of my mozzerella cheese…
1/2 cup total Kashi Mighty Bites/GOLEAN Crunch in skim milk…
…and another slice of rye with PBU – I’m officially obsessed with this stuff! It is soooo good. 🙂
I had a DEXA scan today to retest my body composition (I hop on there every now and then for free – one of awesome perks of my job) – I’m down 2 lbs and 0.5% in body fat over the past month. It’s a slow loss, but I’m happy to be moving in the right direction. The weird thing is that my left arm has more muscle than my right – and I’m right handed! Gotta even those suckers out!
Alrighty, I need to shower – Jim and I are probably going bowling with Chris tonight. Should be fun! Hope everyone else is having a great Friday night! 🙂
