I'm a bit traumatised by the tinned salmon I just bought for dinner. I thought it would be like tuna; skinned and boned and all chopped up into bite-size pieces. I did not think I would have to pick out the spine one vertebra at a time from a slab of fish meat.
Ew ew ew ew ew ew ew.
Anyway, as I said in my status I have quite a few calories left over today (a few less after upping my pasta portion), but I'm not all that hungry. This is REALLY strange for me as sometimes I can be in my range and feel hungry enough to eat a whole cow.
I suspect it's the effects of the last week. Normally I'm way down the bottom of my calorie range, but last week (on holiday) I was way up at the top of the range, even over it a couple of days. My poor stomach must be used to around 1400 calories-worth of food so when I throw 1800 at it, it can't quite keep up.
Yet another lesson learned: 1400 calories is not enough for me with the amount of exercise I do. I'm fairly sure you're not supposed to feel whole-cow hungry with SP. BUT 1800 is too much if I want to be able to eat the next day. So for now I'm going to aim for around 1600 calories per day.
VIH was very sneaky today. I thought about going running this morning and he said 'no you don't want to go now, it's dark outside! Wait til later'. Sounds reasonable; you don't always want to be running round in the dark with the world the way it is. So I waited until I got home from work...oh look it's dark again!
Well nuts to you, VIH. I have a gym membership so I'm going right now to run on their treadmill. So there.
