Alrighty, so I've been thinking about how I've been feeling lately in conjunction with how I've been eating, and it's just no good. I typically am not hungry in the morning, so save for a coffee, I don't eat. Skipping lunch is also typical. I get hungy around 3 or 4, but by then it's so close to dinner, i decide to wait. By dinner time, i am exhausted and tired and cranky, and ravenous to the point of feeling queasy. In addition to snarfing down dinner, I tend to eat a ton of sweets. This sends my blood sugar soaring, and then I get all hyped up after a day of sluggishness. Then I stay up too late, get up too early, and start the cycle all over again.
So I'm experimenting with my diet today. I ate a turkey burger and stir fry for breakfast, went to aerobics, coffee after that, and just had a large (for me) lunch - part of a pork steak I had grilled the other night, a spinach salad with a little oil and vinegar, and some roasted sweet potato and carrots. And a lot of water, of course. It's 2pm, and I feel the best I've felt in awhile. This is usually the beginning of my down time. "Down time" is my euphemism for "being a lazy timewasting asshole". After I ensure that Addie is asleep, I may go do some cleaning and picking up.
I am curious to see how I feel tonight, if I still have the cravings, and what my energy is like for the rest of the day. I'm hoping I can get a small walk/jog in later. Weather permitting. Fucking midwestern weather, so damn unpredictable.
