Week 2 Weigh in and Jerky.com review

Well, I had my weigh in yesterday and I lost another 3.5 pounds! Yeah!!! I wasn't sure if the scale would budge at all for me this week because I felt more "snacky" and I wasn't very motivated to exercise. I did it though! I exercised least 30 minutes on the stationary bike Monday-Saturday and 30 minutes more if I was close to going over my 1,500 calorie/day limit. Sunday is weigh-in day and also CHEAT DAAAAYYYY! (After the weigh in!) :)

The great people at Jerky.com sent me some awesome jerky that does not require you to wait till your cheat day to eat it. Jerky is high in protein, low in carbs and very satisfying. Let me tell you about the jerky they sent me:

Now how good does this sound? Sweet and Spicy Mango Beef Jerky and Sweet and Spicy Orange Beef Jerky. Oh. My. Goodness! So good! The company that makes it is called Spencer's Jerky and is available at Jerky.com.

I love sweet and I love spicy and this was a wonderful combination in this beef jerky. When I tasted the Orange Jerky, I first felt the heat and then the subtle orange flavor layered on top of the spices. Quite yummy!

The Mango Beef Jerky was a wonderful treat! It was my favorite of the two. Maybe because it was sweeter and pleased my sweet tooth. I want more!!!!

Here is a funny little story:

My 2 year old loves spicy food. He is known to eat hot salsa and chips and even wasabi peanuts and peas. He usually has a very worried look on his face while eating them, but he can't get enough. I gave him a piece of the Sweet and Spicy Orange Jerky and he, of course, loved it!

The next day I was in the kitchen and things were getting very quite in the living room. That is never a good sign. I went to check things out and found JD on the couch eating my jerky that I had put away on top of the computer armoire. That little stinker had climbed up on an ottoman and snagged my jerky!!!! Well, can you blame him?

I hope you will go check out the many varieties of beef jerky and turkey jerky at Jerky.com. You will be amazed by all the different jerkies that are out there!
