Day 13, 14-P90X-Rest

Okay, let me clarify. I have had more than 2 days of rest on P90X, but I forgot to include them as a day. So that is why I am playing catch-up. Yes, I did have to take another day of rest today. Why? ..... well, same ole story. I got busy this morning... I had plenty of time to get my workout in, but I fiddle-faddled around doing laundry, picking up around the house, etc. I had to be somewhere at 11:00, and it takes me more than 20 minutes to be on time. I ended up having to do more errands regarding my mother's move, so I did not get home until after 4:00. I said to myself I would make sure the back part of the house was cool. I would begin supper while my workout space was getting cool. Then I would do the workout. NOT!!!! I got home and dh was shoveling dirt. We just had some great concrete block raised beds made. I have an older raised bed that I had made several years ago. It had lots of weeds in it, and he said if I would pull those weeds up, he would shovel some of the new soil into that bed. Ugh!! But of course I wanted a new bed. He already had the seeds for the fall garden. And this is where the spinach would grow. So, I worked pulling weeds and smoothing dirt for about an hour and a half. Then it was time to get supper ready. Normally, I would not cook.. he doesn't mind a sandwich or a salad, but remember... my youngest son is here for a few weeks, and I really want to have a meal for him. However... if I had known he was not going to eat the enchiladas but instead just have the bean tostados, I could have whipped that out in a hurry. But dh did like the chicken enchiladas. So, by the time I cooked, ate, cleaned the kitchen, and worked the new garden, I was tired!! But... I said to myself, I will at least do the Ab Ripper X. So I got it done. So tomorrow is the beginning of my third week, because tomorrow is Chest and Back. So tomorrow is officially Day 15. I know it should be about Day 18 or 19 or 22... I don't know. And I am still eating too many carbs... I just can't seem to help it. So here is what I had today:

Breakfast- one whole egg and 2 eggs whites cooked like a fried egg in Pam- I couldn't help it, I just had to have a change.

Snack- really it was right after breakfast... about a half of cup of dry granola

Lunch- I was not prepared... I had no food with me and was in town longer than I planned- Taco Casa- bean tostado- tortilla, beans, lettuce, cheese, and sour cream.

Snack- got home at 4:00 and had about an ounce of grilled chicken

Dinner- Chicken enchiladas- about a cupful.. chicken, cr of chick soup, corn tortillas, cheese and a bean tostado (only about 2 T) and fat free refried beans, romaine lettuce, mozarella cheese -1 T, homemade salsa.

Snack- about 6 mini rice cakes and 1 1/2 c of skim milk

So Coach Jen... what do you think? Too many carbs? Not enough calories? More protein? The weight is bouncing around the same as it has been since June. I have lost 6 lbs, I gain, I lose, I gain, I lose... the most has been 7 lb. So, you really think no carbs will do it. But hey... no Dr. Pepper for me yesterday or today.
