I am so freaking hungry.
I had nothing ready/available for lunch or dinner today. Dumb, I know, but I guess I really wasn’t as prepared as I thought for bootcamp day one. Lunch was tuna , 13 whole wheat crackers and a single serving of low-fat cottage cheese. Oh, and water. And some black berries.
For dinner, I had some left over crock pot chicken, but no brown rice or veggies to go with it. Ran to the grocery store tonight at 7:30 (30 minutes before I wanted to be “done” eating for the night) and was over-hungry*.
Nothing looked remotely good.
I grabbed 3 packages of frozen brown rice, steam in a bag fresh broccoli and cauliflower, 3 cans of 98% fat free cream of mushroom soup (for a crockpot recipe) and a few other things (including cat food for my poor little big hungry one). I threw the rice in the micro, then the leftover chicken, then the bag of veggies. I had a meal in under 10 minutes, and of course, I wolfed it down. I had 3 veggies left and 1/2 my plate of chicken and rice, and I am feeling full but not stuffed (a 4 on the WW Momentum 1-5 scale).
Also, I had about 5 sips of Diet Coke, and while I am not happy about it, I had a raging I-haven’t-had-a-diet-soda-in-2-days-and-haven’t-eaten-since-1pm headache. I am happy to say it is gone. To break the soda dependency, I am going to have to go slow. Maybe one a day for a few days, then 1/2 for a few days, then 1/2 every other day until I lose the headaches. This going cold turkey is for the birds.
This is the part of working out I haven’t figured out- I have never been able to eat well AND excercise a the same time.
It is either one or the other. Walk four 5k’s and one 10k during the year, eat alot of crap. Eat well, absolutely no exercise.
I am sure it is a dance I will learn to do over time, but I always seem to fail at one as I succeed at the other.
OK, I am going to clean up my dishes and get to bed so I can be up at 5 tomorrow morning.
*Old over-hungry me would have ran to McDonald’s instead of the store, so that is a small NSV.
