Well, great workout yesterday --over 4 miles, I was super proud of myself, got showered, had another glass of water & sat down to relax... then it started-- the hungerpangs. I whipped up a 100 Cal protein drink/shake & called it a night. Only I couldn't sleep. After over an hour of tossing & turning I gave in & went downstairs for a glass of sleepytime tea. Still no relief & a rumbling belly. I ate dinner at 5:30 which is pretty early for me & was within range & couldn't (or wouldn't) grasp why I was hungry... which led to this:
Food should taste good multigrain chips... reduced fat wheat thins a slice of provolone & ham & mustard... disrupted sleep... = me feeling completely hungover, yes like alcohol hungover, today. Headache, upset stomach, puffiness, complete blah!!
BUT I didn't let it break me or undo me. I got back on track, even though I had to travel for work & stay overnight.
I exercised in the hotel gym. I ate decent. Drank water & unsweetened green tea (homebrewed).
What I was reminded of by my uh-oh: I've been working hard, I've gotta fuel my body not ignore it or restrict its nourishment or fill it with junk-- I've gotta respect it. It's working hard for me!!
