I just wanna share that I am so hungry today I feel like I wanna eat a horse. I have allready eaten plenty, making sure it is all healthy and protein packed and I just had a greek yogurt with some granola about 2 hours ago and I feel so hungry still.
All morning I have been feeling shaky and some nausea so I ate fruit and then the yogurt and I still feel like that. I am stuck at work for the next 5 hours and all I can think about is just sleeping.
I am contemplating getting a tuna or combo sandwich from Subway- but I don't wanna go over on calories... I had my day planned out perfectly but I am so hunnngrrrryyyy.
Thanks for letting me ramble...
Any chance you can slip out for a quick walk? Sometimes a little exercise helps.
How many cals are you eating? Protein and fat provied the most satiety to your system. Maybe try some scrambled eggs w/veggies and avocado for breakfast instead of fruit/yogurt.
jeremy- i walk all day(i work in a doctors office) and really cant leave.
Tina- I had breakfast this morning around 6:30 which consisted of protein. The fruit and yogurt were in addition to my breakfast... plus greek yogurt is full of yummy protein. Haha
I broke down and had a half of tuna. I just feel so off today... maybe my body just needs some extra fuel. I will see how the rest of my day goes... It's now 1pm and I work until 5 boooooo. Hahahaha
That happens to me occasionally, and I think that my body sometimes just needs extra calories (maybe from underestimating exercise or calories or something). As long as I've been making healthy food choices, when I'm ravenous I usually just eat a bit more. As long as it's true hunger and not boredom, I think eating a few extra calories is the way to go. Make it a maintenance day (eat as many calories as you burn, without a deficit). As long as it only happens occasionally it won't even noticeably slow your weight loss.
just to add. If you've been working out for the last 4 or 5 consecutive days (weights/cardio) then it may be your body telling you its time for a break. Maybe take the weekend off from working out. I'm feeling pretty blah today too. Yesterday was suppose to be a rest day but I got bored and went to the gym. It was crappy workout and I regret going.
If you're hungry, you're hungry. Are you eating enough calories? And why are you skipping lunch?
krissy and jarred- that's what I just kinda think too. I do work out pretty hard during the week and I am always making sure I get enough calories and fuel to power through my workouts without going under my needs. So I ate a lil more than usual and besides a walk with the dog no exercise. Hopefully I will bounce back tomorrow. I just hate feeling so shaky even after I eat, and I am not hypoglycemic. I should add that I have a history of migraines and had one for about 2 days this week, so I think my body was still just feeling that.
nebichan- I am not skipping lunch or any meal for that matter. I was just rambling that I was surprised my body was demanding so much today. Yes I am eating enough calories. I average 1500-2000 depending on activity level for that day.
The side effects of allergy medications keep some people from using them. Natural remedies can be a great alternative, but some are more effective than others.
