I have no idea what has been up with my appetite lately. I start out fine and then I just binge. It’s been something that I’ve been trying to control, but it can be super hard. I think I really need to start planning out my meals.
It sucks, especially when I want to lose weight. I know my efforts are not helping me AT ALL.
Peanut butter on Japanese 8 Grain toast, sprinkled with cinnamon and stevia and 0% plain Chobani topped with blueberries. This held me over until lunch really well.
I went to work and well… turns out I didn’t have work today, but tomorrow. Crap. My boss gave me hours, luckily, but it totally threw me off. Instead of working in the office like I usually do, I helped my coworkers build a shed in the hot heat.
I had a banana before lunch because I thought I was going to work out immediately after I got off work at noon. Well that didn’t end up happening. I had planned to hang out and play tennis with my boyfriend after he got off work at 3 and I didn’t want to just do nothing for 3 hours so I ate a legit lunch— tuna sandwich bought at the school’s store.
Well this is where it started going downhill. One of my coworkers went to Subway and she wanted a cookie. It’s cheaper to buy 3 so she gave one to me while my other coworkers slept. It was so freaking delicious, but definitely didn’t help with my already bad cravings. Once it hit 2pm I went to the gym and did the phase 2 legs workout from Jamie Eason.
After the gym I went to my boyfriend’s fraternity house and we all went to Target where I got a Coconut dipped Luna bar for a post workout snack. Once we got back we played tennis!
Sure, it seems like I had a relatively active day, but I feel like the food I ate when I got back home just negated everything.
Cod roe pasta which was shared with my mom (we didn’t eat all of it). I couldn’t even finish the burger and I didn’t have much of the spaghetti. I was just too full. I wish I had waited, I just don’t know what happened.
And even after that I managed to sample some Japanese puddings (and eat a whole one). What is up with me?
My mom and I saw this at the Japanese market when we went on Saturday.
It’s actually really creamy and tasty! Hella expensive though- $7!
I can’t really explain the taste, but all I can say is that it’s super tasty!
Every time I have something sugary, I just can’t control my cravings (which I’ve heard is common with PCOS sufferers?). With PCOS I have an insulin resistance, and why I continue to eat sugar with that, I don’t know. My blood sugar just spikes like crazy. I’m thinking I should just eliminate sugar cold turkey… which has seemed to work well in the past. However it does take me a while to not want it. Over all though, I think this is best for my health and weight loss efforts.
I have ACTUAL work tomorrow from 9- noon (Hopefully my boss doesn’t want me to stay longer).
I think I’ll try the meal planning:
- Breakfast- glass of water + rest of my hamburger (it’s small), 8 grain toast, half cup of broc
- Pre- workout- water + half a banana with 1 tbsp of sunflower seeds
- Workout- Arms + 30 minute cardio
- Post workout- water + Chobani with blueberries
- Dinner- Sandwiches with veggies (I’ll be bringing from home)
That’s it. I will not have anything off that list. I hope I can do it. Looking at it though, I don’t have a lot of veggies.
My friends, boyfriend, and I will be going to the beach tomorrow so we’ll be making sandwiches for dinner… I guess. Let’s see if this actually works and I feel full.
