Skinny Cow Rampage!

I still can't find the information on the new Dark Chocolate Berry High Protein Cereal Bar by South Beach Diet, Kraft....but here is my review.

It has the same protein and cals as all the others:

140 cals

10g protein

10 vitamins & minerals

3 Fiber

7 g Sugar

5 g Fat

15 Carbs (I like this part)

150 mg Sodium

It is very chewy and tasty, sorta like a black forrest cake. If you know that flavor YUM, and I prefer it over the regular chocolate.

Last night I went on a Skinny Cow rampage!

I love skinny cows, the ice cream sandwich and the fudge bars. The new truffels are ok, but not my favorite for the amount you get out of it. The picture on the box looks better then I think they taste, but thats just me. Bring on the fudge bar instead, its richer and only 100 cals.

I had 1 1/2! At 140 cals and 1.5 grams of fat each so NOT good. It was over my limit, but for some reason it was just so good to me. I usually don't even have any reason to have that much, but yesterday with coffee it was perfect for dessert. There are no more in the house, thank goodness!


For some reason I have been weighing in around 117-118 and today at 116.5. I am amazed because I have been over carbs this week. Well maybe its working like a cal cycle right now, I will have to see what happens on Friday stat day. That would put me at 1.5lbs away from goal weight, now if only my body fat will reflect that loss as well. I am hopeful, since all other macros have been on target.

I am feeling tighter and todays workout was good, I enjoy the warmup. I got in my incline walk yesterday at lunch 40 minutes, and should again today. I wanted to do a run last night to get ready for the 5K on Saturday, but it rained AGAIN! 5K Gonna be a tough one without practice runs! Thinking I may have to hit the gym for some blasting last minute cardio, I won't mind coming in at a 10 - 11 minute mile. My last one was at 9.33 but the weather was much cooler so we will hope for a low humidity day. I am not a fast runner, just a distance runner.

Here is my workout today:

P90X Kenpo -58 min workout

Mood - Ready

Wt - 116.5

Time of workout = 40 min

Cals burned = ?

25 of each move unless specified 1 set per leg.

Jab twists

Jab upper cuts

Jab, cross hooks, uppercut

Jogs, jump rope, jumping jacks, jump X jacks

Step drag punch, punch Jab, cross, switch Hook, uppercut, switch Knee kicks - 20 slow - 10 doubles fast

Ball kicks - 30 single doubles

Side kicks - 30

Jogs, jump rope, jumping jacks, jump X jacks

Back kicks - 25 3 direction kicks - 24 Sword hammer - 15 Claw punch - 25 Jogs, jump rope, jumping jacks, jump X jacks.

I am getting addicted to the X jacks, but then again I love plyo and functional training. If you have never tried them, give it a shot you might become addicted too........Jump up and out as you jack, in a single form. Now Tony Horton, thats another story!

Off to get the Rockstar Body...........


  1. You have such a great energy & I love it! Great to have you following along with me too...I suspect you'll be one to call me out if it's ever necessary! lol

    Sounds to me like your body just needed a little refeed & what better than Skinny Cow's to provide that :)

  2. skinny cows? I'm going to have to look for those at HEB. LOL

  3. For me, when I was much more in tune to carb/calorie cycling, the high days were almost always followed by a loss - sort of the body's way of saying "Thank you for giving us extra food, we'll be good now!"
