I was STARVING by 9:30 last night. I hadn't eaten a proper meal in 9 hours. I was busy right after work, and then I figured that I should exercise before eating, otherwise I wouldn't exercise... and while that was a good thought, my workout just wasn't that great because I had little energy, and I ended up eating an extra 300 or so calories (bread, crackers, beans) that I probably wouldn't have had I just eaten dinner instead of exercising. Lesson learned, for sure.
breakfast: oatmeal, banana, soy milk
lunch: boca burgers, steamed veggies, evoo
dinner: brown rice, black beans, tomatoes, evoo
snacks: shredded wheat w/ soy milk, fruit, veggies
exercise: The Firm Weight Loss System DVD
P.S. Please keep my parents' dog Dot in your thoughts and/or prayers! She is undergoing treatment for heartworms. Yes, she was on preventive medicine, so I guess that stuff isn't foolproof. Make sure to get your dogs tested for heartworms regularly, even if they are on medication to prevent it. Poor Dottie. The doctors say that because of her regular checkups, it was caught very early and we have every reason to believe that she'll be okay.
