Something I have been debating posting, but I need some ideas. I feel like I am hungry all.the.time.
I realized today that it’s because I’m trying to eat “by the clock,” instead of eating based on how I’m feeling. For example, it’s 7am and I’m starving, but I think that if I eat now, when will I be able to eat lunch? Instead of just eating then and having some fruit or something else later in the morning, I starve myself until I get home from dropping off the two oldest at school and it’s almost 9am before I eat anything. This probably wouldn’t even be an issue, except I’m up at 4:15am to workout and don’t eat until almost 5 hours later. Now that I’m typing this all out, it sounds utterly ridiculous and I really don’t know why I do it. Speaking of which;
Sweet and Spicy Egg Sandwich
- Whole wheat english muffin
- 3Tbsp. liquid egg whites
- Trader Joe’s Sweet and Hot Pepper Jelly
- Apple with cinnamon
This seems like a reasonable breakfast right? The trouble is, I’m SO hungry by the time I eat this, it doesn’t even make a dent in my hunger levels. It’s like this every day, then instead of eating something mid-morning, what do I do? Oh yeah, starve myself until 1pm when my youngest is down for a nap.
This was so good and if it’s wrong, then I don’t want to be right!!
- 1 cup brown rice
- 1 egg
Rounded out with a carrot and hummus.
Once again, it hasn’t even been 2 hours since I
inhaled ate this and I could easily eat my arm off if I needed to. It’s like I CAN’T get the hunger satisfied for longer than an hour and a half.
So what to do now? My plan?
I can’t eat anything before I work out. I’m barely awake enough to tie my shoes and I’m honestly not hungry right away, but I realize I need to eat something between the time I’m done and 9am. I can’t keep going the way I’m going!
I also need to make sure I’m eating every couple of hours so I don’t get the “holy cow I have to eat right this second” feeling.
Any other suggestions? Please help me, I’m starving!!!!
