Today's challenge: Staying within calories, which can be harder to do while exercising

Note on Pictures: I finally spread this Laughing Cow light Garlic Herb cheese on five Ritz crackers and I give it a thumbs up. The cheese was 35 calories and the 5 Ritz crackers is 80 for a 115 calorie snack. Very yummy. Thanks Sunshine Meg for the idea.


  1. Yes! Glad you like it. Good luck with weight training.

  2. How do you control the food when you exercise hard? I'm always starving..

  3. Some days are easier to control the food than others. But I try to schedule my mini-meals a little while before the workout and shortly after to help with having energy needed for the workout and recovery afterward.

    So, for example, today I ate breakfast at 7 a.m., and went running at 8:45, then, had a protein/carb shake around 10:30. Then, when I weight lift this afternoon, I'll take a protein shake around 2:30-3:00, weight lift between 3:45-4:45 and eat dinner at around 5:15-5:30. This is another good reason to eat six small meals a day.

  4. What is the protein powder you use?? Could you email me rather than comment on my blog??
