I really don't know why. I think it's because it's so new still. I remember how hard the first couple of weeks were when I committed to do this in 2009. Cravings were crazy. And I always felt like I wanted to eat.
I'm struggling with that again right now. I just had supper, and am feeling like I haven't eaten enough. I'm not hungry. I know I'm not hungry. It's more of a habit that's getting to me now.
Yesterday, I tracked all I ate, but I went over my calories. I had been below my calories all week long.
I wonder. I should check my nutrition reports. I'll bet I was low on carbs yesterday too. That'll cause me to want to eat everything the next day.
And I just remembered, I didn't eat right after I went running this morning. That does it too.
Wow. How easily I forget what causes this "feed me everything in sight" reaction of mine. lol
Now that I remember why it's happening, I'm sure I can deal with it. I also recall that sitting here blogging while drinking a whole bunch of water will help end this within 20 minutes also.
I've got this.
Maybe I don't got it. I definitely won't be eating any more today. I forgot I had 3 triangles off a small toblerone bar. I just tracked it. It was listed as 400 calories for those triangles. Then I looked again. The calories were for a 400g bar - 3 triangles. I only had a 100g bar - 3 triangles. It's still 101 calories, but it set me over 2,000 for the day.
Talk about frustrating. It's a combination of those triangles, and going out for omlettes this morning. What's done is done. If I go walking for another hour, I'll still hit my 1000 calorie deficit for today according to my bodyMedia. I was looking forward to settling in for an easy night, but it looks like it's time for me to get my butt dressed back into something warm, and out the door again.
Grrr. But if I want to reach that goal, I'd better get moving.
I got my butt out the door. Went to the grocery store that's all the way across town - about 2.5miles. I checked with my BodyMedia. I burned more than I needed to. I can actually have a banana now, and still have a 1,000 calorie deficit today.
Not bad for it still being my first week back at this.
