I hope your Thursday morning went well. My morning was a bit early! It started with Greek yogurt at 3 AM!
I went to bed last night thinking that I might be a touch hungry. I did not feel “hungry” just an “empty” feeling maybe? This intuitive eating is not all that intuitive sometimes for me. I just went to bed anyway and I fell asleep pretty quickly. I woke up 2 AM with actual “hunger” this time. I hate when I do that! It’s going to be one of those challenging food days. I don’t want to overdo things like Monday.
Nothing sounded good that early in the morning. I laid there and could not go back to sleep so I decided to eat some yogurt with honey on it. That seemed to do the trick! I slept until 7:00 AM.
After a while I got hungry for breakfast and oatmeal was my go to.
I ran on the treadmill (rain!). I ran three miles and I had something going on in my right calf of all things. They never give me problems! Then my bad knee felt vulnerable. I decided it was time to walk. I walked the last mile and then stretched and iced. Time for lunch!
I had my favorite salad and a mashed sweet potato this time. Sorry it may be boring to see it again, but it’s good and easy to put together! I only have enough chicken left for maybe one more go at it. 🙂
It has some dried blueberries this time too!
That is the last of my cooked sweet potatoes! You probably won’t see them tomorrow, uless I decide to make fries out of some. 🙂
After a while little things started to irritate me. I grabbed the last of my almonds from yesterday and began to nibble. This is a hard one. Is my blood sugar low so I am easily irritated and I need food, or am I just angry and I am about to emotionally eat?
I know this probably sounds ridiculous, and like I said intuitive eating is sometimes so challenging for me, and other times I think I have it down completely. I went with the first one and decided I needed to eat something in order to prevent me from nibbling on everything in sight.
I had something I have never had before. It is a hot 10 grain multi-cereal. I sprinkled on some flax seeds, chia seeds, millet, and drizzled on some grade B maple syrup.
I loved this! It was filling and my mood improved, and it also reminds me of a spiral galaxy. 🙂 I am trying to eat more meals instead of snacking. Let’s hope I can keep this up!
Have a great afternoon and I will talk to you soon!
