Hey everyone! Hope your weekend was as lovely as you are J. After starting out my Monday morning with a few minutes of yoga, I was ready to start the day!
This post isn’t as bad as it sounds, trust me! But last night I experienced hunger pains that I haven’t felt in so long.
I had dinner a little later than usual, but I wasn’t starving, just a little bit hungry. I had a vegan Asian noodle bowl, a hot drink made with Soytein cappuccino protein powder and unsweetened cocoa powder and a little Truvia, and a big Honeycrisp apple. Yum! It was a normal-sized dinner for me, but an hour later, I was starving! Usually after a dinner like that, I wouldn’t get hungry til about two hours later, and that’s when I’d have my snack. Since I had had dinner late, I ended up having my snack around the usual time. I was so hungry that I scarfed down that Kashi Trail Mix bar.
Surprisingly, I was just as starving after I ate the bar. My ED thoughts started kicking in, but I shoved them aside. I promised myself that if I was still really hungry in another half an hour, I would eat another snack! Yes, I know, I can’t believe I said that. Normally, I would just deal with the hunger pains so I could shut ED up.
Half an hour came and went and…I was still as starving as before. So I poured myself a bowl of Whole Foods Honey & Oats cereal (kinda like Honey Bunches of Oats). I did measure it out to be the recommended serving size, but…I ate not one, but TWO nighttime snacks! I was so so so proud of myself for basically saying “Screw you, ED. I’m hungry, so I’m gonna eat!”
Sorry if I sound like I’m bragging, but last night was a huge slap in the face to ED. And it felt so good to respect my body’s cues. Take that, ED!
