Brief re-cap of last night's dinner: Tuna salad sandwich on an Arnold's Sandwich Thin. Those are definitely becoming a favorite of mine. Had a baked potato on the side w/ some light sour cream and chives. Topped it off with a deep chocolate vitatop and a glass of chocolate almond milk. I love vitatops so much. Unfortunately, they're pretty damn expensive, whether you buy them in the store or online, so I usually only order them when they have some sort of special promotion going on that includes free shipping. Although, I recently discovered that Amazon sells them as well, with the "free shipping on $25 or more" deal, so my addiction may just go on...
Moving on for today...

total points used: 22/22
activity points*: P90X- Plyometrics- 5
WAPs**: 23/35 remaining
*Activity points are also part of the WW program. I wear a heart rate monitor when I work out and award myself one activity point for every 100 calories burned. APs can be used to swap out food points on the days I eat a little extra and go over my daily food points.
**WAPs stands for Weekly Allowance Points. These are like extra back-up points that I can use during the week. I get 35 each week and only use them if I go over my daily food points, which includes days where I swap out all of my activity points and am still over (i.e., days where I'm feeling a little on the piggy side).
Breakfast this morning was the same as yesterday, because it's good. I have some salmon in the fridge for dinner and am still debating on what I want to do with it. I can either make salmon tacos or simmer the fillet with some spinach, tomatoes, garlic and white wine. Both of those options turned out pretty awesome last time I made them.
As for the Kashi dish, I'll have to report on that tomorrow, as it's my first time trying it. I love Kashi; they're one of my favorite food brands. Love, love, love their TLC granola bars, Go Lean Crunch cereal and their flax waffles. I don't buy their products that often because they can be pretty pricey, but if I catch them on sale and/or with a coupon, it's definitely worth it.
My usual routine on Thursdays is to go to the gym and run or do some incline training. But last night, my boyfriend informed me that he acquired a copy of the new P90X DVD set that I've been eying for a couple of months now. Yes, it's an infomercial product, BUT, I've been hearing reviews from people both online and in-person and I'm more than ready to give it a shot. My mom's boyfriend's son, who is a personal trainer, says it's a pretty kick-ass system and will definitely bring on a challenge. I actually used to have Tony Horton's older system, Power 90, on VHS back in the day. I remember it being a good workout, but of course I wasn't nearly as dedicated back then, so I never stuck with it all the way through to really experience the benefit.
Well Tony, I'm ready to give you another shot, you handsome tiger, you. Ideally, I want to dive in head first, stick with it and become totally ripped, but there's also the possibility that I will completely wuss out. At the same time though, I've been able to bust through all of Jillian Michaels' DVDs pretty well for the last few months, and her workouts are pretty brutal. So at the very least, P90X will give me a better idea of where my current level of fitness is; it may be considerably higher or lower than I think.
That's all for now. Tomorrow (Friday) is my weigh-in day. I'll also share a recap of tonight's impending dinner and of course, my first P90x workout.
