Feed me, Seymour!

I have discovered that being constantly hungry does nothing for my state of being.
Today I have been hungry, and very restless and grouchy with it. I made a proper breakfast. I had a healthy snack. I had a salad with good proteins for lunch. I had another healthy snack. I have spaced everything out pretty well and never went back for seconds. Yet... I remained hungry all day. All I can think about is stopping the grumble. I have air-pop popcorn. I have peanut butter. I have apples. I have all kinds of good, healthy food items here, but that in no way means I can keep eating. It's great that I have surrounded myself with good-for-me foods, but now I need to remember moderation. While I haven't been measuring my portions to the exact, I have been doing the hand comparison. I even have a magnet I made for my fridge with hand measurements.... but ugh, I'm hungry! And I'm having severe dinner anxiety.
Last night Jonathan didn't get home until almost 10p. He didn't call before he left work so I had nothing prepared. He usually calls as he's leaving so everything's done by the time he comes home... last night caught me totally unaware. We ended up having hot turkey-n-cheese sandwiches which was quick and satisfying. We were supposed to have spaghetti one of these nights but didn't have a couple key ingredients for the sauce, and it's been snowing like mad here so I haven't been able to get to a grocery store. His work day ends officially at 6:30p, but if the job isn't done he's got to keep going until it is... and in the meantime I'll sit here and freak out over what to make when he finally gets out.
I'll also sit here and gripe because I'm hungry. Seriously, stomach rumbling hungry. It's been a half hour since I last ate something. The rule is 20 minutes, yes? So if the first snack of protein and fruit didn't do the trick, I should try again, but in moderation. Yes? GAH.
And yeah, I'm writing it all down.
