I'm Hungry

The problem with working out all the time is that I am ALWAYS hungry. After my morning workout I am OK.. because I know that lunch is right around the corner. But its my late classes that make me come home and eat at 10 o'clock at night. That is a big no-no.

Like usual, my workouts are rockin, but my food choices are cruddy. Today I am going to change that. I am making my favorite cabbage and lentil soup this morning and am going to eat it all day... that's right, every time I'm hungry I will heat up a bowl. Cabbage soup is great for you... and its filling. I am hoping that this will help me calorie wise.

So, last nights new class was great! There were 4 women in that class!! and..... we did floor work! Which means I finally grappled with another woman. I guess fighting with all those men really paid off, because I rocked! She came close a couple of times, but I was able to get out of them.

I will probably go to that class once a month...

Today I have a full schedule. I have shoulders and arms this morning... Yoga tonight. It should make for a sore Tigerlilly tomorrow!

I'm so impressed by your progress! I just started on a plan to lose 15pounds so I know the struggle.

I think that eating that soup all day may give you a tummy ache, no? I know you're a carb'o'holic - are you making sure to have protein with each meal?

my trainer says a banana is the perfect after workout snack...perhaps you could have a banana after class?

sounds like your class last night was a hoot - sure wish you could post a video of you kickin' someone's ass!! ;-)

Jeez, the SAME thing happens to me! If I work out late (say 8-9 p.m. or so), I come home STARVING and it just isn't so pretty after that. Good idea about the soup, though, I agree with may end up with a sore tum! Awesome news about the class! You DO rock, TL!

i second the banana thing. I play basketball til around 12mn. I come home STARVING, so I usually eat around 3-5 bananas ehe.

better than frying up some spam, right? ;)

I worked out after dinner last night, so when I got in, I was hungry. I went to the fridge and started trying to decide what sounded good. An ice cream sandwich was my first choice, but I decided to go with my second choice, some sugar-free chocolate pudding instead. 60 calories, verses 160. Haha!! I think a banana and peanut butter would do the trick, too, but that peanut butter can really get ya with the calories! I always enjoy a nice little bowl of "light" tortilla chips and some salsa late at night. You'll find something that will satisfy your hunger, without being too high in calories...and I think the cabbage soup is a great idea to start with!
So glad to hear that new class will give you some female competitors to toss around a bit! That sounds like a lot of fun! :D

When I was on a very strict weight loss program, part of my snack allotment was a protein snack at bedtime. Better for you than carbs at bedtime. The snack was small, but it really took the edge off a hungry tummy so I could go to sleep. :-)
