emoticon Slept in today, was having the weirdest dream about being in the military again. My alarm on my Fitbit about scared me to death. Maybe it vibrating on my arm is not the best way to wake up. But it does usually wake me up! I got more than 4 hours of sleep last night, so I'm happy. I got 6, but that is better than what I have been getting.

emoticon So I didn't get up early enough to work out. I'm going to work out this evening when DH leaves to go to worship team practice. I dislike working out when he is around. But I guess that is something I need to get over.

emoticon Two appointments today, one in the AM the other at 2:30 PM. Neither is for my sleep and heart rate, which I need to go be seen for soon.

emoticon The later I stay up, the hungrier I get, the less likely I am to eat something healthy. Deep down, I'm a night owl. I love staying up late. But between military and the kids, I've become a morning person. I get up early with the kids, early to work out. Usually I don't have much trouble getting up early because I'm just so used to it. So I normally go to bed between 9 and 9:30 PM. But last night I was awake till 10:30 PM. And I was HUNGRY! I ate the rest of my asparagus and a banana with honey, I was full, but I still had that hungry feeling. I don't know what to do about it. I was full, I knew I was full, but I was still so hungry feeling I felt like I could eat all the leftovers in the fridge!. Yes, I tried drinking water. No, it didn't help. I don't know how to deal with myself when I get like that. That is the feeling that led me to being this big. And I don't know how to conquer it. I'll figure out a way. Somehow.

emoticon For starters I'm doing the "plate method", it is recommended on diabetes.org, and so far I'm doing great on it. Basically you eat more non-starchy veggies than anything else. DH and I are working expanding the veggies we eat and how we cook them. Some of the veggies on the non-starchy food list I've never heard of before! It will be interesting to try them.

emoticon My lunch yesterday was canned asparagus, steamed broccoli, 12 grape tomatoes, a can of tuna (in water, no oil) and 10 saltine crackers. Must get rid of the crackers, they are 124 empty calories. No healthy starches, but I'm going to cook some pinto beans and solve that. This is how I'm eating from now on. Lots of veggies. The only problem is that I get hungry more often, so I need to eat more frequently. I've got my snacks planned out: 12 grape tomatoes, 1 cup of carrots with 2 tbsp of hummus, yogurt with 1/4 cup of granola. The yogurt and granola is the most calorie dense.

emoticon Now to figure out what to do when I get that super hungry feeling for no reason. It must be emotional, but I've got to figure out what emotion is prompting it. I feel almost frantics for food when I get that way. I know it sounds ridiculous probably, but it is very difficult to get around, to not eat something when I get that way. And eating the asparagus and banana did not help.

emoticon Happy Sparking and emoticon emoticon
