Why is 6 afraid of 7? Because 7-8-9!!! Happy 7/8/09!
Today was a good day. I went to the doctor yesterday for a yearly check up, and it wasn't pretty. I hadn't been to the doctor in almost 3 years, and in those 3 years, I gained 23 pounds. My blood pressure was high, 130/100. I'm a little nervous because this is the first time it's been high. So now I'm ultra determined to get healthy! But now that I'm back in my normal routine, my diet was good, my exercise was great, and I'm looking forward to losing some weight!
I'm working out late at night. I'm not a morning person, so it's great for me to work out. BUT... it's around 9 p.m. before that happens. Thankfully, it helps me go to sleep and rest well. But I wake up just completely starving and end up being really hungry for lunch early in the morning. So tonight I ate a slice of toast before bed, hoping it helps get me through the night until my oatmeal in the morning. Is a slice of toast really the best snack? What about a bar with fruit and nuts?
