Low Cals

Anyone have or know of a good place to find low calorie recipes? I am looking for some that are 350 or less per serving. I am hoping to find some that are not too strange and that I can make and they will still be edible/filling for someone that is not trying to loose weight. :) Also if anyone has any suggestions on good snacks, quick lunches or anything else I am all ears! I am a bad snacker so I am going to try to bring more fruits and veggies to work so that when I get the munchies, I can eat those instead of cookies, candy or chips. I am going to try starting out to stick to about 1600 a day. Thanks!

Sprint Triathlon!

Hey there,
I just got done with a sprint triathlon last week. I had a blast. I got 163rd out of around 400. The swimming was the hardest by far! If anyone is contemplating doing a triathlon, I would highly recommend it. It feels great to finish. I hope to do another one in may and the Idaho Spudman in June. If anyone wants to come up to boise and do them with me, they are welcome!

Working Out Morning or Night?

I was wondering if anyone knows if it is better to work out in the morning or at night.  I prefer to work out late at night like around 8 or 9, but my sister in law says that it is better to work out in the morning.  I was wondering if this is true and if so why?  I didn't think it mattered just as long as you were getting in your daily calorie burn.  Also another question... What is the best way to use protein powder (with water, with milk, before a workout, after a workout?) and can it make you gain weight?  Thanks! :)
