46 Days Out

2011April 002

This is the chicken that I grilled on Sunday.  We have a Calphalon grill and I love it!  Calphalon Electrics Removable Plate Grill

It is so easy to use and clean and makes cooking up a dozen chicken breast a breeze.They turn out juicy and perfect every time! 

I actually had quite a bit of energy yesterday considering it was my second low carb day in a row.   I was starting to crash around evening cardio time, but I managed to get on the elliptical and spin bike.  Not a very intense cardio session, but got it done.

This is how yesterday went down:


  • Morning cardio - ran 4 miles outside, walked dogs
  • Trained back with Diana
  • Evening Cardio – 30 minutes on elliptical, 20 minutes on spin bike

Meal #3: Grilled chicken breast with Walden Farms BBQ Sauce and brussel sprouts. I bought the Petite brussel sprouts this time and they were so yummy!  A whole bag is two cups and that’s just what I need!

The scale hasn’t budged in the past week and I know it’s because of water retention and my T.O.M. but I don’t like it.  I get weighed in tomorrow and my body fat measurements taken and I wanted to be at a certain number.  We’ll see what happens.


  1. Hi! We met a few years ago through Kelli and she showed me your blog- you look great and I am so impressed by everything you have accomplished! Hope you don't mind that I am following you now! Quick question- what is that yummy chocolate protein you put on your oats?? Anyway, good luck!

  2. Hi Betsy! Yes, I remember meeting you! Thanks for following along with my blog. The yummy chocolate protein is the ON 100% Whey protein powder. We buy it from bodybuilding.com (but you can buy it anywhere!). I use chocolate caramel toffee fudge some times or just the double chocolate. It is sooo good. I mix it in a cup with just enough water to make it like a peanut butter consistency and then pour that into my cooked oats. Soooo good!

  3. I was wondering about the protein on the oats too. It looks super yummy! Thanks for the heads up!
