Did you ever have one of those days where it seems like you can eat, and eat, and eat, yet never feel satisfied? Well, I’m having one of those weeks. Yesterday and the day before (and yes, the one before that, too) I might as well have planted my office in the kitchen of my apartment and worked from the counter top. Or better yet, just set inside the pantry next to the raisin bran… maybe I can fit into the box of raisin bran?
On top of the eateateat syndrome, I’ve been so crazy busy that I’ve been grabbing the quickest thing possible. I even stopped at a Starbucks the other morning, two hours after I ate breakfast, to get a bagel and cream cheese. Who does that? Not only did I purchase big breakfast number two, but I actually sat down in the cafe area and ate it like the cookie monster who just got his first bag of oreos. It probably looked like a morning after episode because I was dressed to impress (had a big meeting that day) and it was 11am. Good times.
My full day of eats yesterday, just to give you a taste (pun intended!) of my appetite lately:
Breakfast: peanut butter and jelly (open faced so it lasts longer and I get twice the pb. heh.)
Lunch: Whole Foods hot bar lunch of a roasted chicken breast and roasted vegetables with salad
Snack #1: Probably three cups of raisin bran crunch straight from the box.
Snack #2: Whole foods cold bar backup meal of roasted tofu, chick peas, artichokes, arugula, and honeydew
Snack #3: A whole lot of pistachios
Snack #4: A whole lot of strawberries
Dinner: Before I knew it, it was 8pm, and I was still working. Gah! My eyeballs were going to fall out of my head. I chose the easiest thing I could think of to make–being that pb&j was already taken, I went with two eggs over hard with steamed string beans. hold the raisin bran.
I vented on Twitter about how crazy my appetite has been, and recieved this response:
I’ll take it! I do believe that our bodies tell us when they need something, and we should listen to it. But I hope it calms down soon. Not because I don’t like to eat, but because being hungry this often is actually quite annoying (and expensive). How’s a girl supposed to get any work done?! But somehow in between all that eating, I did manage to get a ton checked off my list. Including a training session with a new personal trainer that I’m excited to feature next on Mel Runs .
Does your appetite ever spin out of control? How do you deal?
