I went to work this morning and I just could not get over the hunger pangs. I very rarely have the annoying hunger pangs. Maybe it was because I did not exercise in the morning or I did not use my inhaler or it could be just a blah day.
I took my clients to our weekly Duncan Donuts drive thru and I ended up getting myself 7 glazed munchkins. (I ordered 5, gosh darn it! - and I didn't even share!)
I was so hoping that I just needed to tame the sugar crave as well as get some carbs to jump start my day. Around noon, I was so very hungry. I fed the clients and then ate my large salad. By 1:30 pm, I was so hungry again!
I caved and got a Subway 6 inch tuna as well as just one chocolate chip cookie. So happy I just got one since I used to get three. (Back then, I didn't realize that one cookie was 210 calories!)
By 5 pm, I am seriously feeling the hunger pangs again. What the heck!?!?
I grab my grapes and ate about two cups full. It took me some time since they were the red kind and had three to four little seeds in them. By the time I was done with my grapes, I was full! Strange....
By 6 pm, I felt so blah and sluggish...and still full. I took my inhaler and then went for a walk with my husband for a mile. I continued my second mile without him and actually jogged a half mile. I started feeling better. (BTW, this month in August, I walked / jogged 125 miles!)
Made dinner, cod and cooked vegetables (zucchini, red pepper, mushrooms, and tomatoes) and sprinkled parmesean cheese over it.
Dinner was good...but 45 minutes later, I am feeling mildly hungry again. Good thing it is near bed time and I can sleep soon!
Not sure why the excessive hunger or if the blah-ness of the day is making me hungry. Hopefully tomorrow, I havea better handle on my foods... Working 9-5 in a group home that I never worked in. I was told that there will be two other staff and one staff is to be a 1-1 with a client who is extremely active. Hmmmmmm
