Hi all! Do you ever have days where like nothing seems to fill you up and you could eat everything under the sun? Yep, that was me today but I can say I learned from it and came out on top, I think.
When I was making lunch in my head, I thought Almond Butter toast all the way on that Oroweat Artesano Bread I got The Husband. Good bread gets me everytime. It really did sound like a good idea rounding it out with apple slices and celery. The thing is, it’s not really a good idea on days you are starving.
It honestly did nothing for me and I was hungry an hour later. Enter snack 2, then, 3, then 4.
I knew I needed more protein for staying power in my day but The Husband has been asking me for real bacon BLTAs so I kept to the dinner plan.
What helped me today:
- Pretracking so I knew how many points I needed for dinner.
- Having extra good for me snacks on hand.
- Truly listening to if I was hungry and being ok with eating like all day because I only ate when I said yes, I’m hungry.
- Tracking every bite to be fully aware.
On that note, I’m off to bed to catch some zzzzz’s before I eat anything else lol….
