I think my Metabolism is changing.
Tuesday, January 18, 2011
I noticed some more things today as I went out in search of Vitatops. 1) I no longer crave junk food, 2) I was massively hungry today, and 3) Vitatops are hard to find.
Okay so as I searched two different stores for the elusive treat that Hungry Girl swears by. I had to go down many aisles. I passed by all my old favorites. Popcorn, chips, cookies, pastries, junk food in general. That's when it dawned on me I didn't want them or desire them in anyway. I did look at a box of 100 calorie white cheddar popcorn at Target but decided I had enough snacks. I was just surprised that I don't want that junk. My daughter made peanut butter cookies and she said how happy she was that she didn't have to worry about me stealing cookie dough. We laughed about it but I though eww all that sugar.
I've always had a bit of a sweet tooth but lately I'm just not interested. Even my 100 calorie snack packs of chocolate covered pretzels and my 100 calorie packs of little fudge striped cookies are still sitting on the shelf hidden from the kids. Anyway I found that to be interesting that my old favorite sweet treat just don't appeal to me anymore.
Now one thing though is that I was very hungry today. I ate quite of bit of food but it was all low calorie and low fat. For example I had a sandwich with laughing cow cheese and 97% fat free ham for lunch along with a weight watchers string cheese, clementine orange, and a snack pack of crackers for like 400 calories. I had mini homemade low fat low cal pizzas for dinner. And for those who are wondering I ended up choosing the oatmeal for breakfast. My very favorite maple and brown sugar made with 2% milk. Even with all that food, 3 extra oranges and V8 for snacks I barely make my calories and I was starving half the day. I have never been hungry like that since I started eating right so the only thing I can think of is that my metabolism has sped up. Hmm I guess that's a good thing huh?
Oh and for those of you who are familiar with Hungry Girl you have probably heard her rave about Vitatops which are low calorie, low fat, high fiber muffin tops. Well I wanted to try them so I did search two stores for them. I finally found them in the freezer section (who knew?) and will try them tomorrow. For now I'm unusually tired (and its not even a cardio day) and will be heading to bed so I can rest up for my run tomorrow. Good Night Sparks
