I was struck by a serious hunger all morning — I think that this crazy schedule has impacted my dinners, and they are slowly getting lighter and lighter (I just don’t have time eat a big meal or by the time I get home, I’m not very hungry). As a result, I’m starving in the mornings.
I had cherries around 1o AM:
Yogurt + a crushed Kashi TLC bar around 11 AM:
And a grilled tempeh + sprout wrap with a side salad around 12:00 PM.
The sammie included about 1 tablespoon of this alfredo sauce, which I found in the fridge! Guess it’s the Hubby’s.
Of course, there is more to making a meal satisfying than just it’s calorie count, but I was still SO hungry after this two-hour long "lunch" that I quickly totaled the calories up and realized it was only 660 calories — what I thought was "lunch + two snacks" was really just a big lunch (calorically speaking).
I was still hungry around 1, so I just ate a small tupperware bowl of Kashi Go Lean.
The fiber in this definitely filled me up. OOF! Now I’m satisfied.
I’ve actually lost a few pounds over the last few weeks, and my dad remarked that I looked skinny when I saw him last weekend, so I think a little extra something-something is probably a GOOD thing! I don’t typically discuss weight gain/loss on the blog because I don’t really see the point normally (weight fluctuations are normal). But it’s worth pointing out that I recognize my new schedule is throwing off my eating habits and I need to pay attention to make sure I’d adequately fueling myself up! Food is fuel for life! I also just want to acknowledge this on the blog because I’m sure several of you are wondering how I’m faring with living on PB sammies at night.
In other news, what the hell is with my electric + water bill this month?
How much are your utilities? We have a 2-bed, 2-bath and our water + electric is typically $170.
