There is officially 7 days until my birthday and I still would like to lose a couple extra pounds.
I'm trying my hardest but my biggest problem is - I'M ALWAYS HUNGRY!!!!!! No matter how much fruit or complex carbs and fiber I eat, I'm hungry again in 2 hours! I'm choosing all the right foods, and portions but grrrr it's like my stomach won't shut up.
Do any of you have this problem? If so, enlighten me, how do you control yourself from eating every time your stomach tries to convince you it's starving?!
I realize I have completely failed, my 6lbs in 6 weeks challenge has backfired.
HOWEVER considering my birthday is in 2 weeks, I am now shooting for a 2 week challenge. Unfortunately, I was unable to hit the gym today, but, I am running a half-marathon on Sunday! (Wish me luck!)
Challenge (technically) begins today, yet, due to the long weekend - we'll be on schedule by Monday! Please join me, I promise I won't let you down this time!
Here's my food for the day:
9:20am Hunger Level (HL) 4 (out of 5)
- 2/3 cup Activia vanilla yogurt with 1/2 cup homemade granola and 3/4 cup sliced strawberries
1pm HL 3-4
- Green tea
- 1 1/2 cup greens, 1/4 avocado, 1/4 roma tomato and 1/4 cucumber
- 3/4 tblspn dijon mustard, 1/2 tblspn EVOO, 1/4 tblspn balsamic vinegar, 1/2 tblspn honey
- 1 1/2 cups cooked edamame
- Tall nonfat sugarfree vanilla chai latte from Starbucks
4:45pm HL 3
6:20pm HL 4
8:30pm HL 3
HAPPY CHALLENGE :)
