Monday Recap...

Good Morning!
Monday is finally over and we are now into Tuesday. Four more days until the weekend!!!

So, let me tell you about my day yesterday. Well, I will mainly tell you about my eating habits. Breakfast started off great:
I had almond bread cake with a side if peaches. After one bite I knew I needed more since I was ravenous so I smeared some peanut butter on top. This was an 8:30am breakfast. 

By noon, I decided to forgo my lunch workout because I was starving and wanted to eat my lunch at that time instead. 
Lunch was a curried chicken kale salad with avocado. I devoured this in seconds. I was still hungry afterwards but decided to wait some time before I had something else. 

After about an hour I was still hungry so I had a Larabar. For some reason this only kept me full for half an hour. This is where things took a turn for the worse. 
I had TWO bowl fills of goldfish crackers and a cookie. This was followed by a handful of Hershey kisses. I was just so hungry!

Well, when I had all this I was finally full. So full that I could not eat dinner. I also felt extremely lethargic, down and my stomach was cramping up. Despite all these issues I had a large slice of chocolate cake with almonds at night. 

As you can see, there was absolutely nothing nutritious put into my body after lunch. Not one thing and I definitely felt it. 

I think I wrote this post more for myself. To see the choices I make and the way they make me feel. To remind myself that if I have a goal in mind to keep at it to see results. Yes, I was starving yesterday. Maybe I need to readjust my portions but I also need to work on better food choices when hungry. 

Today is a new day. I've packed a nutritious breakfast and lunch along with a few healthy snacks. If I continue to be ravenous I at least have healthy choices on hand.
