I have been wanting to eat everything that couldn't run faster than me today.
This morning I had that nauseous kind of hunger, kind of a sick feeling. I ate my bran muffin and it still wasn't enough so I had a banana with some peanut butter on each bite. I ran the route today and had my protein food bar, my trail mix, and my apple gone way before noon. What is wrong with me?
I came home and had lots of almonds and two squares of dark chocolate. I figure if I am going to eat it is going to be the good stuff - what I usually eat.
I have gotten the water in today and will have body sculpt tonight. Hopefully I won't be wanting to eat everything that isn't nailed down when I get home.
I have trouble with mouth hunger and chew a lot of sugar free gum.
When I have head hunger I get something hot to drink or some water. Head hunger can be dealt with by just shoving something in the face like some coffee or some water or some of my sugar free cappuccino.
The "just empty" hunger is not too hard to deal with because there will soon be a growl and it's time to eat.
Then there is the panic kind of hunger from an insulin response in my opinion. Eating too many carbs will do this. Eating too many carbs makes the body want MORE MORE MORE.
I missed more exercise classes than I should these past couple of weeks and am now back full steam ahead. My muscles have been sore and they are healing so I am blaming this hunger on that.
Heard a good tip for saving money as I listened to talk radio today on the route. It's easy - don't spend $1 bills. Each evening put them away somewhere. I have always saved my change and quite a decent amount can be saved over time and is not missed. I had not considered also saving $1 bills as well. I am sure I can have Christmas taken care of by starting today doing this. How about you? Join me?
Can you think of any other kind of hunger?
