Why do we have days that no matter what we eat, we can’t get full?
Today was one of those days. Not sure if it’s because it is the start of "that time" or what, but no matter what I ate today, I couldn’t get full. I ate breakfast, which I do every morning as soon as I wake up. Not sure if that’s out of habit or because of hunger. I ate my usual of my all-time favorite yogurt – Yoplait Thick and Creamy Light French Vanilla – and a granola bar. Today’s bar was Fiber One’s Apple and Oatmeal or something like that. I usually eat a Kashi granola bar, but we were out of them.
Then the rest of the day went like this….banana at about 10 a.m, then lunch at around noonish that consisted of healthy portions of stir fry, white rice, fruit and salad (I had a noon meeting and this was on the menu for lunch!) and then as the afternoon rolled around, I ate two oranges, then a cookie, then another cookie. Still hungry. Then it was on to supper, which consisted of grilled steak, potatoes and carrots. And now, as I type this, my stomach is growling and I just finished eating my supper not more than an hour ago. When I finish with this, I will eat a couple pieces of toast with some peanut butter.
During this healthy lifestyle change that I am going through, I am trying to pay more attention to the foods I eat and choose ones that WW has deemed as "filling foods." Sometimes it works. Sometimes it doesn’t.
I try to drink a lot of water between meals and even right before my meal to help fill me up. This usually works, but today it didn’t. All it did today was make me a little water logged.
Maybe tomorrow will be better and maybe tomorrow…..I will exercise. I haven’t done a lick of exercise for about a week now. I know I have too and I know I need to. I just haven’t.
