I don't know what's up, but for about a week my hunger has gone through the roof! About a month and a half ago I upped my calorie intake from 1500 calories per day to 1800 calories per day. Even with the added calories, I wake up at night to my stomach growling, and all throughout the day I can hardly go two hours without being hungry.
Any idea what's up? I'd love to have some advice!
Breakfast this morning was a little different.
I didn't add any fruit to my bowl of oats, so I added... cover your ears... splenda (I know... very bad. Tisk on me).
- 30 grams oats
- 1 tablespoon chia seeds (gelled overnight)
- 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
- 1/4 cup milk
- 3/4 cup egg whites
- 1 tablespoon almond butter
Lunch was pretty plain-jane.
Just a piece of whole wheat toast with 3/4 tablespoon peanut butter, and a serving of 1% cottage cheese.
Snack 1 was a Muscle Cook's protein bar. LOVE these bars, even though they are pretty sticky.
Snack 2 (consumed maybe an hour later) was leftover turkey meatballs.
Supper was really good. Usually I get super sick of eating stir fries, but tonight's was awesome.
- 5 ounces chicken breast
- 1 cup broccoli
- 1/3 cup green beans
- 1/4 red bell pepper
- 1 tablespoon teriyaki sauce
My sister has me hooked on greek yogurt and honey. Perfect combo! Eaten with this, Jamie Eason's carrot cake protein bars.

I have some exciting posts coming up! One of them is a guest post written by a trainer out of Seattle, and the other is my new workout cycle, Dane (the trainer from Seattle), has made for me. So stay tuned!
