Last night I slept over at a friend’s house and we woke up bright and early, earlier than I have in a while or so it seems, because she had to babysit this morning. Usually when I wake up it takes me a short while before feeling hungry but I was already feeling hungry as soon as I woke up today and once I got home I was starving. That might have had something to do with the fact that I went to bed feeling just a tiny bit hungry, but I still find it a little weird. And it’s not really that great for the rest of my day because since I ate breakfast so early, I’m already quite hungry right now hardly an hour later, and I’ll end up eating lunch early, and then probably end up eating more throughout the day overall. Oh well though, i’ll just have to structure my meals and snacks a little better today!
My massive hunger was calling for oatmeal this morning so that’s just what I had. While making it I snacked on a bit of pineapple and a couple strawberries.
I made the oatmeal with 1/3 cup of rolled oats, about 1/4 cup of pumpkin, some cinnamon, a few slices of banana and almost 1/2 cup of apple crumble yogurt. YUM. It was super creamy and delicious. I also topped it with a bit of Kashi Honey Almond Flax.
Even with this fairly packed bowl of oatmeal and a big hot cup of tea, my hunger doesn’t seem to be fully curbed though. We’ll see how long I can hold off until giving in to the empty feelings. I’m going to do a workout first so that should help!
