The insatiable hunger!
This AM hit the gym for 5 Miles on the treadmill with E. I was starving and after a quick shower I made it to the office to have my normal, a bowl of Kashi Go Lean Cereal, the natural sweetened muligrain clusters kind, with some organic milk. That was gone by 8:30.
By 10:30 I was hungry again so I my daily snack stand-by, some 1% lowfat cottage cheese and an apple. I usually try to have some protein and some carbs.
Then 12:00 came and I was already a bit hungry, but it was not lunch time, but time for hard bodies class.
There we are working out and this smell starting to permeate the room. Some sort of fine smelling food was starting to overwhelm us as we worked out.
The funny thing was all of us seemed to have our own idea as to what it was. The instructor thought it was a turkey club, one girl said beef, I thought for sure it had to be pizza.
All normal people are out stuffin their face with delicious food on their LUNCH breaks and here I am just working out, starving to death and just smelling it...waaa!
So with mouths drooling we continued our workout. Thank goodness the smell went away or maybe we just got used to it. Yet, my hunger did not.
I returned to the office for lunch just after 1:30 to make my normal Cambell's Select Soup. You see this is my lunch everyday as it is cheap and easy plus it satisfies the protain and carb criteria. For the last several months my way of breaking up the monotony of it all is switching back and forth between chicken noodle and vegetable. Both are around 200 calories and 2 grams of fat.
This week the store was out of vegetable. So goes my "variety" for the week.
After my 4th day in a row of eating chicken noodle soup in a row and smelling that yummy unknown food, lunch did not do it for me AT ALL! I am still starving. It is about time for another afternoon snack...maybe more cottage cheese and an apple. Thank goodness my dinners are not so boring!
