For the past three weeks Dr. Jacques has been my personal trainer. I'm pretty lucky to have had him working with me and the great thing is that you can follow along and get instruction as well. It's been an interesting three weeks. I am a bicyclist and have never really been into resistance training.
This has been great and I am getting better after three weeks. It's interesting what I can and can't do. I don't like really the Shoulder Circles and actually have gone backwards with the weight to try to do them better. Exercise, Part Four
I love Taco Salad. It is one of the "go to" meals for me when I just don't feel like cooking. While I generally use chicken, shrimp makes a great variation.
Select lower fat tortilla chips or taco shells and make sure that they are Trans Fat free.
If you don't have time to make the Tomatillo Salsa, look for a salsa that is lower in salt at the grocery store. Most of the major brands have about 150 mg of sodium in a 2 tablespoon serving. Looking for the smaller manufacturers can be rewarding, with less than 100 mg of sodium in the same serving.
