Does anyone else have those days where you just cannot stop eating? These days used to scare the crap out of me. I used to blame myself and feel guilty for eating so much on days like these, equating it all to “binging”, but now I know that it is just my body politely asking me for more fuel. I did two cycle classes over the weekend and ran over six miles this morning. Between that and all of the walking I have been doing since the weather has been nicer, my body is screaming for more food. Luckily, I brought lots of snacks for the week to work today (although I pretty much ate most of them already). It is also a nice reminder that my metabolism is really kicking into gear, and restricting food will only slow me down.
This topic may not 100% relate to the pictures below, but I wanted share a bit about ALL the random foods I have been eating lately. The fact that my meals have been bigger with more carbs and fats may also be one of the reasons my metabolism is finally jump-starting back into gear. Not to mention, life with more carbs and fats is sooo much better than diet and nonfat foods
Amy’s White Cheddar Mac and Cheese – yes that’s right, boxed mac and cheese is an old favorite.
Though not enough food to fill me up for dinner... a side of sausage and veggies please?
Make-ahead eggy oats with Greek yogurt, almond butter, a banana and chia seeds. Perfectly gooey breakfast on the go.
Pre-dinner margaritas with chips and guac - thanks to a great friend and hostess for a Mexican themed feast last weekend.
Afternoon delight, a macchiato from Tryst with animal cookies – the perfect Saturday afternoon girl date with a friend from work.
Do you ever have days where you are constantly hungry?
Does it freak you out, or do you soak it up?
