Hungery For Something

Tuesday, October 08, 2013

Have you ever felt hungry for something but not know what exactly? That's me today. I know what we having for dinner tonight (a quickie beef stew), but I'm hungry for something...I just don't know what! emoticon It's a sweet craving..more a savory one...and something that feels good in my mouth. Sometimes I swear I find myself eating something just for the texture of it. How it feels when I crunch it, or how silky smooth something is. So I have decide that over eating is just not about taste..it's also about texture. However that insight still doesn't help me figure out what I'm craving for. emoticon

I made it back into the gym today. And I'm loving my new tablet. I started watching The Croods on it and the picture was amazing! Plus no lag...no freezing...no buffering. It was great! Battery life, so far today, seems good too. Anyway..I did 60 mins on the elliptical today. My HRM only gave 329 calories burned. I really think it's on it;s last legs. Good thing I ordered a new Polar FT4 Heart Rate Monitor. It should be tomorrow. It's pink and purple. I hope I get better calorie burn read outs with it. emoticon

I also signed back up for Amazon Prime. It's getting close to time to shop for Christmas and with Amazon Prime I get free 2 day shipping when I buy stuff! That could come in handy. emoticon

Hubby is loving his tablet too. Except he's using my PINK ear buds. We're going to have to get him some more "manly" ones. emoticon

So far it's been a quiet day at work. But I can't wait to get off and head home. I had to stop at Wally World this morning (they are open 24/7 here) for some Ranch Dressing for hubby's lunch. I send him veggie packs (carrots, celery, and broccoli) to snack on and he likes Ranch with it. emoticon

Last night wasn't a good night eating for me. I had a major snack attack! Maybe not enough "real" food during the day? I had lots of yogurt and salad throughout the day. Maybe I need to add some more protein so I don't get the snackies at night? emoticon

So that's it for me today. Just 3 more days until the weekend!

    emoticon Those "Unidentified Cravings" are HORRID!!!! I totally relate to the "Texture" thing, too.

    I get cravings like that sometimes. I know I want something, but I can't identify it.

    Try ginger snaps for something crunchy. I keep them around because they're hard and you can eat four of them for 120 calories or so. Crunch is what I'm usually looking for. Hugs, Calen~

    Great job working out at the gym today! I can relate to the craving thing, sometimes it's difficult to figure out what they are about. Wishing you a great week and upcoming weekend!
