In the last few weeks I’ve ganied a few pounds. They are bothering me a lot. I don’t know why they are upsetting me so much, but I really need to lose them. All week I’ve been trying to eat well, but night time occurs and I eat extra that I don’t need. It’s really hard to wake up and not feel discouraged when you are constantly hungry and never really satsified. The only new additions to my diet that I eat almost everday are coconut butter (which I take a teaspoon or two and melt, and mix in with my cereal) and chia seeds (which I used about a teaspoon) in my cereal also. Let me show you what I ate yesterday:
- 1/2 mushy banana
- 1/8 cup of almond milk
- 1/4 cup of pineapple
- 2 handfuls of frozen spinach
- 3 blackberries (the rest were old)
- 1 teaspoon of almond butter
Left over grilled chicken salad fromthe night before.
- Grilled chiken (3 oz or so)
- 1/3 of avocado
- Some leftover balsamic (barely any though)
Also had a cracker and some watermelon
- 96% lean ground burger with half of slice of cheese on a sandwich thin
- 3 or 4 french fries
- 100 calorie protein bar
- 2 dates
- Clif Z bar
- 2 bowls of cereal: 1 teaspoon coconut butter, 3/4 cup of puffins, 1 cup almond milk, 4 chocolate chips
- 2 babyruths minis
- bite of chocolate bar
- 1 chocolate chip cookie
- Peanut butter filled pretzels
So as you can see my meals are fine.. it’s just my snacks. The cookie and pretzels I had during the middle of the night! It’s a bad habit I have when I’m not sleeping well and I stopped for a long time, but recently started to grab a snack again. Thanks to my boyfriend for purchasing a bag of candy. He bought a ton of chocolate and my dad brought over the cookies. Neither do I want in the house because than it’s easier to eat. Hopefully the boyfriend will eat the chocolate very fast.. haha.
I think I need to make my meals more filling, but I’d prefer to eat like 6 mini meals throughout the day. I get hungry very fast.
I also started running this week. The running mixed with the “special gift” women get once a month is just adding to the water weight and being so hungry. I hope it passes soon.
Does anyone have any suggestions for me?
