Bottomless Pit

Okay, I don’t know what the deal is but for the past three days, I have been SUPER hungry.

Truth be told, after I eat my breakfast and lunch for the day, my hunger just isn’t the same anymore (usually because I’m dealing with tummy discomfort, but that’s a whole other issue). Obviously, I still eat dinner and even manage to have a sweet snack afterward, but for these past few days, I have felt like I am a bottomless pit all day…which is rare.

Thankfully, the majority of the snacking has consisted of healthy options, like the makeshift trail mix I’ve been snacking on at work.

I had a couple of bags of Oh Nuts goodies left over from HLS and have been loving the combo of almonds and dried fruit together.

But trust me, it hasn’t all been healthy…like how about last night, when I plopped down on the couch to watch Modern Family? I ended up housing a handful of candy corn and two huge handfuls of my favorite chocolate candy ever, even after the sweet treats at the baking class. Hey, sometimes it happens.

I’m actually starting to wonder whether or not my increased hunger has something to do with the workout challenge? New workouts, new-found hunger? I’m telling you…this thing is pushin’ me!

Workout

This morning brought me to Day 18 of the challenge, which consisted of  three different workouts:

  • Xtreme Cardio Kickboxing (40 mins)
  • Xtreme Bonus Abs (10 mins)
  • Xtreme Bons Buns (10 mins)
I had already done the first two workouts before, but today was my first experience with the bonus buns (<– does that make anyone else giggle or am I just that immature?). All I can say is, if you’re looking for a quick lower body workout that is going to leave your booty screamin’, here’s your video. Ten minutes of continuous lunges, squats, and bridges…holy MOLY I can’t wait to see how it feels tomorrow. Yowsahs!
Lunch

Today’s lunch ended up being a repeat of Tuesday’s because, well, it’s just so darn good.

Unfortunately, this was my last pumpkin spice bagel so I think it may be time to go get some more…orrrr maybe not. ;)

I also brought another Stonyfield yogurt, but I wasn’t as much of a fan of this one as I was the last one. This one was sort of chunky and just not that great, IMO.

Things are fairly quiet here today, so I’m hoping to be able to bust through a good amount of studying this afternoon. We’ll see how it goes!

Question for the Afternoon:

Have you ever noticed a correlation between your workouts and your hunger? Do you get more hungry? Less hungry?
