I guess all of those early morning spin classes caught up with me today. Not only was I exhausted, but I was the hungriest I have been in a long time.
(By the way, spinning was awesome again this morning – hardest class yet. Plus, we watched a Warren Miller film, which reminded me of my college days when I used stalk and follow Jeremy Bloom around campus.)
Backtrack to before the workout…
Bread with peanut butter and banana slices
Afterwards, I refueled with a green monster.
½ banana, lemon juice, spinach, and milk – easy and yummy. I thought I was full after this…hah, little did I know.
About 9:30, I had a hunger attack. When I say attack – I mean it. I thought I was going to pass out if I didn’t eat something (anything) soon. I hadn’t packed any snacks (lesson learned!!) so I went to the staff lounge in search of something. I ended up stuffing my face with crap – a chocolate muffin (the size of my head), about a pound of pineapple and a heart shaped neon pink cookie (Lord knows what it was made of) – I was still starving afterwards, so I drank a gallon of water, and was still famished. However, I couldn’t really do much more about it – so I just waited it out until lunchtime when I came home and filled up with fiber.
A sweet potato with black beans, yogurt and spicy mustard.
Thankfully, I felt full after inhaling this, and I stayed that way until dinnertime, which was a Rachael Ray recipe – it only took me 30 minutes! (Usually RR’s thirty minute meals take me about an hour – I’m a slow cook, I guess)
Chicken and Broccoli
I really wish that had been brown rice – but white was what we had. The other side is chicken and broccoli with some Asian flair.
All mixed up with siracha…
Now, I am enjoying the night with Meeker, some Starbucks, and The Big Lebowski
