When I got home I promptly put on jeans and a fleece, put my hair up and got to work on my presentation for Thursday. Worked hard all morning. If I’ve learned anything from the research on supplements vs. whole foods it’s EAT REAL FOOD. (As if I ever thought otherwise, but still!) The title of my presentation is “Mother Nature Knows Best” 🙂
I got home at 10:30 and since it had been 4.5 hours since breakfast, I had a snack. My stomach was rumbling but I can’t eat vegetables before noon! (‘Cept for pumpkin 😉 ) I think often the preference between mini meals vs. 3 square meals depends on your schedule. On days when I workout, have breakfast at 8:30, lunch at 12:30 and dinner at 6, I really only need 3 meals and a small snack at 4. But on days when I have to S P R E A D myself out – breakfast at 6, lunch at noon, dinner at 6-7, I really do need the snacks and mini meals work a lot better.
Since I didn’t have fruit at breakfast, I had fruit along with some almonds and trail mix for satiety.
My snack didn’t’ hold me over as long as I had hoped! I had lunch around 12:30.
A Lentil Apple Walnut Muffin –
Leftover roasted veggies over spinach
More warmth (it was SNOWING HERE!!!)
My lunch was balanced and colorful, but I just didn’t feel satisfied after and my stomach felt weirdly empty. I could not get the word orange out of my head, so I went back for a tangelo for dessert. Did the trick!! Guess I needed some citrus in my life.
STILL feel a little bit hungry and I just went to look at my calendar where I am now writing down some notes on my cycle and on February 2 I wrote “Starving.” Must be that time of the month!
Since my workday started at 6:30 this morning, I’m almost off the clcok, and after a few chores, I am headed to Emily‘s for a workout and a girl’s night dinner! I think she’s going to kill me with her new home gym!
