That's seriously what I feel like. I've been running on about nine hours of sleep total the last two days and I feel like I just can't get full! Weird, right? I swear there's science behind it, check out more on the topic here. I can't wait to get a full eight hours of sleep tonight and hopefully return to a state where I'm not shoving everything I see into my mouth. Does anyone else eat more when they're tired?
Breakfast was a sunnyside up egg and jelly on 12 grain toast. I was running late so I literally threw tin foil over this bad boy and took it to work with me. Thinking about it now, maybe that's something I should do more often.
I was hungry again a couple hours later so I snacked on a banana and a Special K bar one of the patrons brought me.
After that, I was hungry again a couple hours later! However, I'm not one to avoid my hunger twangs, so I had an apple and a Nature Valley Oats n Honey bar [unpictured]. No lie - I was hungry again like an hour later! I tossed some TJ's Quinoa Duo in the microwave and gobbled it up with some shrimpies.
Delicious! Mind you, it's only about 1:00 by this time and I've eaten my way through about 1200 calories. What is the deal? Please someone, comfort me.
Dinner was kind of a new thing for me. Would you believe me if I told you I've never had a peanut butter and banana sandwich? Yeah, I'm that guy. Instead of just making a plain PB&B, I decided to put a little spin on it and make it monte cristo style baby!
Drizzled in a little honey and MMM so good. I'm thinking about entering it into The Great Peanut Butter Exhibition - but it needs a little more work first! I promise to post the recipe when it's just right. And you guys should definitely try coming up with a recipe! Who doesn't love peanut butter? And it's okay if someone doesn't because I love it enough to make up for a small peanut-intolerant country.
After work, I ran out to Woodmere for some supplies and maybe secretly for the sole purpose of buy more PB&Co. I saw these at TJ's and just had to grab them:
Honey Plantain Strips! I've never had plantains before though I've always wanted to. If they taste anything like these chips did then I think we're in business. Good job teej!
In Whittle My Middle news, I'm already more than halfway through the challenge! I can't believe how fast the time has flown by. I can hold a plank for two minutes steady now and Kelly and I are slowly working up for more. Yesterday was the midway mark so I took our second set of measurements. I haven't really lost much inch-wise, but I can feel my abs are flatter and more solid already. Kelly, on the other hand, has lost 3 inches total so far!! You freakin go girl!!
I'm also thinking about running another 5k this weekend. That is, if I can find someone to come with me. I hate going by myself - I get lonely, okay!? A few friends of mine have mentioned that they might come with, but that's not exactly concrete for them if you know what I'm saying. Time for Operation Peer Pressure! (:
After all of this snacking (and a WF/TJ run!!), I'm not exactly hungry for dinner. Finally! So I'm gonna shove my booty outside for some running and maybe throw together a smoothie later. What do you think? Peace bloggies!
