I really need to stop inhaling my food...

Friday, July 24, 2009

For dinner last night I decided that what I really wanted was some homemade lasagna. So that's what I made.

Lasagna with whole wheat noodles, very lean ground beef, tomatoes, summer squash, mushrooms, and 3 different cheese (where I think I went wrong).

I ate 1120 calories in that one meal because I ate 2 servings. 1 serving would have been okay because I did burn a lot of calories (1486 to be exact), but man, I don't think I really need to eat THAT much. This pushed me WAY over my eating range too.

But here is the situation with me burning close to 5400+ calories per week (if I stay at this pace) what am I going to do.

I want to "eat to ride" not "ride to eat." I need to figure out a balance.

    I read somewhere in the mist of all these posts to look out for the "sigh" when you're eating. Next time you sit down to eat, pay attention to when you sigh and have to catch your breath. (You have to pay really really close attention). Apparently, it's your brain trying to tell you you're full. One night at work I sat down with my lean cuisine, apple sauce and some sweet corn. I payed very close attention to when I sigh'd and stopped eating. I waited 20 minutes to make sure and YUP!! I was FULL! I had eaten 3/4 of my lean cuisine and a few tablespoons each of my applesauce and corn. Imagine how many calories you'll save yourself! Try it!

    Okay... well lasagna is probably one of those once in awhile foods. You made it with great ingredients and then you had too much. You've been working hard, you wanted it, you had it, you survived it ;) Now your next dinner make it a little lighter fare so even if you do have seconds it won't be so much. A once and a while splurge... that's living ;)
