I made another breakfast sandwich this morning, and while it was delicious, it didn’t fill me up like a normal breakfast usually does. I have no idea why, but I’ve been famished all day long. Nothing will keep my belly satisfied!
I started breakfast off with this yummy sandwich: 2 lg. egg whites, 1 handful spinach and 1 sun-dried tomato Laughing Cow Cheese on a whole wheat bagel thin. I thought this would fill me up because I was crazy full after my last breakfast sandwich. But not this time. I also ate a small pack of apple slices for my fruity goodness of the morning.
I always have 1 thermos full of coffee, but I never take pictures of that. So around 10 a.m. at work, I started to feel hunger kicking in. Granola bar time. I munched on a crunch Kashi bar, but it still didn’t make my stomach feel much better. But I stuck it out until lunch, figuring that it would fill me up, at least until I got home from work.
Lunch was fabulous. I haven’t had a string cheese in a while, and the fruit salad was filled with all my favorites.
The real star was my Lundberg Wild Blend® Rice concoction. In the mix you’ll find tomatoes, orange bell peppers, red bell peppers and zucchini. Really good!
Also, you’re probably wondering if maybe I didn’t drink enough water. That’s not the case. I drank more normal amount today, mostly because I thought I might be dehydrated too.
When I got home from work, I had some Greek yogurt, a slice of toast, some cereal and a little bit of honey mixed in. Still my stomach craves more! So I had a cup of soup! Hopefully that’ll make me feel better. Either way, I’m still going to make some dinner tonight. Maybe a sandwich or some type of rice mix. I think these things happen to everyone sometimes. It doesn’t bother me that I keep eating, but I’m just curious why.
Here’s one theory…I’m thinking is that for some reason my morning breakfast sandwich just threw things out of whack. When I start the morning with yogurt, that ties me over until at least 11, when I have my first snack.
Maybe it was the cold that got me so hungry? It was 0 degrees in Chicago today. On my ride home, it bumped up 10 degrees, but that’s still pretty bad.
I’m hthinking about getting a gym membership at my local YMCA. It’s only 5 minutes from my house, and I think the price is somewhere between $45-50 per month. They have a ton of equipment there! I’m planning on checking it out with a friend soon. We’ll see what happens.
Do you ever have one of those day where you keep snacking and nothing seems to fill you up? How are you staying warm tonight (if the temperature by you is as bad as it is in Chicago)? Do you think $45-50 per month is reasonable for a gym?
