Why am I more enthusiastic about this whole 'healthy living' in the morning then the afternoon? I do fantastic every morning. Eating a healthy breakfast, snack and lunch. The second that clock hits 2pm I am starving, and I don't care a thing about healthy living. As far as I'm concerned I will die if I don't eat a peanut butter sandwich or two RIGHT NOW. I guess the only things that has saved me so far is that by dinner I am not hungry and eat a cup of veggies. Is it my body telling me I need to eat more for lunch? Is it my lack of self control when temptation starts to hit? How do I keep my 'gung ho' attitude all day? I need to find a snack that will keep me full and still on track. I don't crave sweet, I crave bread! Yes, bread. I love crackers but have learned from the past that I cant stop eating them and will finish a box in one sitting. Same thing goes for those 100 calorie packs...If they are so low cal then I can have more then one!! LOL.. So my blog friends, I need for you to give me your best ideas on a mid afternoon snack that will fill me up...keep in mind I am broke, so no expensive protein bars or fancy food! LOL What is your favorite mid-morning snack??
I did nothing today. Not even a walk. I tried, oh how I tried.. but after 3 minutes I just couldn't get the energy up to continue. My legs felt so heavy...and my lungs did not want to hold air. So I am taking today off as an official 'do nothing' day. Tomorrow is a weight lifting day...and I plan on hitting my 5K again. I am scared of getting burned out. It has happened before...but I am also afraid of not doing enough... taking too many days off and then falling back into my old lazy day self. Tomorrow I WILL run... I WILL work out... I WILL!
Today I am staying focused on my food. I didn't go over in calories but I ate 10, yes 10 slices of bread yesterday. Not in one sitting, but still!!! Dinner was a cup of cauliflower...this can't go on. Time to re-think my eating schedule.
I am planning a bigger lunch today, maybe that will keep me full until dinner.
