  1. I'm not sure what's recommended as far as eating before or after a workout, but I found out yesterday that I need to eat before. Normally I go home from work, eat dinner, then go to the gym around 7:00. Last night I had plans to meet a friend for dinner so I went right after work. My usual workout is about 55-60 minutes on the bike, 100-150 crunches on the ab roller, and then a cool down walk on the treadmill for about 15 minutes. Well, last night after 30 minutes on the bike I felt lightheaded, sweaty, and I was shaking. I left the bike and went to the ab roller but only got through about 50 before I had to go. I went home and ate some Kashi cereal and felt much better. Any idea what may have brought this on? Is it common knowledge that you should eat before working out? I sure wish I had known!
  2. PECANS IN THE CEMETERY On the outskirts of a small town, there was a big, old pecan tree just inside the cemetery fence. One day, two boys filled up a bucketful of nuts and sat down by the tree, out of sight, and began dividing the nuts. "One for you, one for me. One for you, one for me," said one boy. Several dropped and rolled down toward the fence. Another boy came riding along the road on his bicycle. As he passed, he thought he heard voices from inside the cemetery. He slowed down to investigate. Sure enough, he heard, "One for you, one for me. One for you, one for me." He just knew what it was. "Oh my", he shuddered, it's Satan and the Lord dividing the souls at the cemetery. He jumped back on his bike and rode off. Just around the bend he met an old man with a cane, hobbling along. "Come here quick," said the boy, "you won't believe what I heard! Satan and the Lord are down at the cemetery dividing up the souls." The man said, "Beat it kid, can't you see it's hard for me to walk." When the boy insisted though, the man hobbled to the cemetery. Standing by the fence they heard, "One for you, one for me. One for you, one for me..." The old man whispered, "Boy, you've been tellin' the truth. Let's see if we can see the Lord himself." Shaking with fear, they peered through the fence, yet were still unable to see anything. The old man and the boy gripped the wrought iron bars of the fence tighter and tighter as they tried to get a glimpse of the Lord. At last they heard, "One for you, one for me." And one last "One for you, one for me. That's all. Now let's go get those nuts by the fence, and we'll be done." ... They say the old man made it back to town a full 5 minutes ahead of the boy on the bike.

  4. Thanks for all the advice guys! I had a great time with my friends, but honestly I didn't care for the food that much, so I didn't end up eating all that much! I did eat the shrimp appetizer, and I got the teriyaki chicken, but it was kind of dry so I didn't eat that much of it. The rice was ok, so I maybe had 1/2 cup of that. All in all, not so bad! Plus, since it was my friend's birthday they brought out a cake, and I didn't even have any of that.
  5. I love breakfast food, particularly for dinner, since I don't have time to fix much in the morning and usually just eat instant oatmeal. Anyway, I have discovered a great breakfast dish that you could really eat at any time of the day. I start by microwaving either 1 egg, beaten, or about 1 egg's worth of egg beaters for about 1 minute. I put one slice of fat-free cheese on the egg to melt. Then I toast one english muffin and put half the egg on each side of the muffin. I top it off with a Morningstar Farm sausage pattie on each side, and it is delicious! It totally fills you up and you feel like you are eating a lot, but it's very low in points. Just thought I'd share!

    Substitute

    I love the Baked Tostitos. Personally, I have had very bad experiences with WOW Doritos, so I avoid those like the plague. But one of my favorite dinners is to make nachos using Baked Tostitos, canned turkey chili with beans, fat free cheddar cheese and fat free sour cream. Obviously, I am no chef, and I like things that are quick and easy, and this little dish certainly fits the bill!
  7. I have to say that I got the calculator as part of my WW at Home package, and I LOVE it. It helps me keep track of how many points I've used, how many servings of water, milk and veggies I've had, and it converts my points for me, including Flex and AP. It makes my life a lot easier!
  8. Tonight I am going to a birthday dinner at a Japanese restaurant, the kind where they cook the food in front of you. I've never been to a restaurant like this, and I'm not sure what my options are going to be. Any advice on staying OP at this place?
  9. I recently bought the 94% fat free kettle corn, which I absolutely love. I use the WW point calculator from the WW At Home kit to calculate all my points. I entered in all the info from the nutrition label in the "After Popped" column and I come up with 0 points. Is this true? Should I use the info from the "Before Popped" column? If it really is 0 points, I'll be thrilled, but I don't want to go over my points.
  10. I agree about the Slim Fast bars. They come in several flavors, but my personal favorite is the crispy peanut butter, because it tastes just like a butterfinger. Pria bars are also good, especially in Mint Chocolate.

    Hot Dogs

    Hey guys! Just thought I'd share this with everyone, because I absolutely love hot dogs, but we all know they're not so good for you or your WW plan. I recently discovered Oscar Meyer fat free hot dogs. They have just 40 calories each and no fat! I can have one on a light wheat bun and that's only 2 points total. I put a little ketchup and mustard on there, and I swear you can't even tell the difference. Sometimes I also add a spoonful of turkey chili. Or, to add in some extra fiber, try cutting up a fat free hot dog into a bowl of canned baked beans. Instant beenie-weenies! Obviously, I am no gourmet cook, so I love to find things that are quick and easy.
