I had a different sort of post for today but hunger struck today, so I just thought I was meaninglessly ramble for a while instead.
But first a pose a more serious question to you…
Have you ever had days that you were just hungry beyond control? Like you could eat an entire plate of pancakes and not be phased.
Oh yes my friends it was one of those days. I’m okay with it though, which is good for me. You need to rely on your body to tell you if you are hungry, and allow for certain fluctuations. Staying at the same amount of calories every single day is so unreasonable. So today, I just ate (not mindlessly mind you) until my body said okay you are done now.
My body and I have great conversations-normally it consists of feed me more pancakes and I reply with yes yes I’m so sorry-what on Earth was I thinking. But I try and listen to my body and not feel guilty for anything I put into my mouth.
But moral of my rambles is somedays your body just requires more calories. It happens to everyone, maybe you worked out more (in my case I didn’t). Listening to your body and eating your calories when your body requires more random days will help you so much in the long run. I think I am finally starting to rely on intuitive eating and I could not be more pleased.
So here are some of my noms:
I’ll probably have some ice-cream while I study too-what can I say… I had both lunch and dinner with my Arctrainer BFF Justin today. I mentioned this a few blogs ago but Justin ran his own PERSONAL marathon (on the treadmill) on Sunday. He has basically become my gym and hangout buddy because we are seriously twinnies and he puts up with my constant chattering on the Arc. That and he will even eat with me afterwords.
Oh yes and a lot of them are repeat photos but when you are constantly eating-your camera isn’t always on hand. HA. I was not about to wait to eat for my camera.
In fact-it fueled me for a nice run today in the snow. Seriously it was warmer than it has been the last few days which makes me unmotivated. Don’t ask why (because I’m a weirdo for real) but nice days make me less motivated. I am so glad I went for the run though because I felt amazing. I had the fastest workout I have had since cross country season.
Long story short-I held almost the same pace I held the fastest time I did that loop during cross country season. I’m either coming back a lot stronger or swimming really had an effect on my running and I was just too naïve to tell. I’m thinking I should have listened and that it had a big ole’ effect but either way-it was an awesome run. I can’t even express to you guys how happy I am right now. I’m on a straight up runners high.
Questions for you:
1. Do you have days where you are just hungry for everything and anything?
2. What makes you not motivated? (in anything, studying, working out, knitting….)
