I'm mad about yesterday. It was one of those days wherein I was constantly tempted to just give up and go back to bed. It started with a world of smugness in which, despite sleeping through my first 2 alarms, I still managed to pack food for the day and make it to my optometrist appointment early. That's when I locked my keys in the car. It just stayed on that shitty track for the rest of the day, and I just wanted to smack myself in the face when I had to skip my workout because I was apparently too stupid to pack my gym shoes into my bag. I'm hoping today is an improvement. I'm moving my shoulders and abs to Saturday, and will do my back and biceps mayhem today. I packed my shoes. ...er... I'm pretty sure... YES! Yes. cool.
Has anyone else embarking on a new life of fitness found that their eating has changed? I don't just mean the guzzling of whey powder or getting into weighing their chicken. I mean, the internal aspects of eating. What you crave? How you feel hunger and when and satiety?
I've not started a serious diet yet (although I'm pondering it for August), but I'm trying at least thinking I should be eating more protein and have seriously cut down on my fruit intake. I find in the last couple of months I've developed a mad craving for bread. I used to rarely eat bread, and have only adopted it to some degree in the last few months because it's easy packaging for avocados and tomatoes. Now I want it all the time. I'm getting giddy just thinking about the bagels the boss bought us. Also the other day I was pondering that I should eat my sandwich soon because of when I was going to the gym, and then I thought, "I'm not really hungry, though, maybe I should just save it for tomorrow." Then 15 minutes later I was suddenly ravenous and crammed that sandwich into me like I was trying to win a bet. Bizarre. And hungry in the morning? When did that change over for just eating breakfast because it kept me from fading out midday?
Of course all this food-related craziness just makes me worry that I'm going to get fatter, which makes me worry even more about it. Do all people with allegedly healthy eating habits fret this way?
