Last night, I got really hungry and I was afraid that I was going to eat the whole contents of the pantry before the night was over! But I felt genuine hunger and I stopped eating when I finally felt full, so I guess it’s not the worst thing in the world, it just scared me a bit.
But let’s backtrack…yesterday I completely skipped over a morning snack because my breakfast was awesome and I went for a 50 minute walk before lunch. Lunch was some Smart Deli turkey on whole wheat with mustard, applesauce and carrots:
I got the new applesauce that has added calcium, it tastes really good, just like regular unsweetened applesauce!
About 4 hours later, I had some raspberry soy yogurt and a nectarine (which I have found I think I like better than peaches, even though they are similar):
But then the hunger struck again, so I dug into my stash of peanut butter filled pretzels. I started out with one serving and then felt hungry again so I went ahead and ate another 1/2 serving…
When I got home, I wasn’t starving, so I made a light dinner of a veggie burger with onion, tomato and ketchup in a pita pocket and a side of broccoli…
I went to a discussion group with some friends at Border’s last night and by the time I got home (about 3.5 hours after dinner) I was completely famished! I made myself a bowl of Barbara’s cinnamon puffins with some light soymilk:
This tasted good but I still had the hunger pangs! I waited a few minutes, then went ahead and made another bowl of cereal with 1 tbsp of Nutella…
But even after this, I still wasn’t full! I waited a few more minutes, decided I could go to bed and try to ignore it but I went ahead and finished myself off with 1/2 cup of Kashi Heart to Heart and about another 1/2 tbsp of Nutella…I have no idea how I invented this snack, but the Nutella seems to strike around a certain time of the month if you know what I mean 😉
Luckily after this, I was comfortably full, went upstairs and brushed my teeth and went to bed. I’m not proud, but it could’ve been worse and at least it was genuine hunger, like I said. But hopefully today and the rest of the time this won’t happen 😉
