Much Less Cranky

Posted: June 14, 2011 in Uncategorized

I have issues with Sundays. I love the mornings. I get my carbs, I feel full and strong in my workouts, but then… I just feel like I’m stuffed the rest of the day on my high day.

In all honesty it’s not a HUGE amount of food but compared to my usual everyday meal plan it feels like I’m almost binging.

It’s funny how only a few short years ago in the height of my food issues I could sit at home, down a medium pizza, ceasar salad, the big sized bag of sour cream and onion ruffles and still think “hmmm… ice cream would be good. I’m not full yet”

Um yeah, sick I know. But that was my reality.

Now? Yeah, I’m used to 200-300 calorie meals. Having a few on Sundays that are bigger are tough. Especially since I try not to stay up too late so sometimes they get squished a little too close together.

I’m (slowly) learning more about timing, what meals work best, etc etc and think this weekend ‘I’ll make a plan so that if I AM feeling very full I can cut back on a bigger meal (less veggies, use slightly more starchy carbs instead, etc etc) and split it in two to eat with two other meals… essentially giving me one less meal a day.

At three weeks out (which I will be this weekend coming) I really don’t want to make any huge changes since I AM so close and I have been making good progress… but being so stuffed makes sleeping Sunday night’s hard and Monday morning I just hate life and cardio I feel so huge and gross.

Not pleasant. At all.

I know it’s a very important part of the game plan… but yeah. I hate high carb days right now.

Yup. I said it. I don’t like them.

… But I shall deal. Because it is what it is at this point.

… unless Joe responds to my checkin to scale back.

… Which will probably elicit a tearful “but Joe I love my carbs! Please don’t take away my carbs!” response.

… Yes, DRAMA is my middle name.

Are you shocked by that? … because I’m not.

… for clarity sake, my middle name is actually Jayne. Fun random Tuesday fact.

So today… I feel much less bloated and wide, and much happier and less cranky. WIN!

Whats your middle name?!

How do you feel about refeeds… if you have them.

    I know how you feel about being satisfied with eating less. I was actually thinking about doing a blog post on that topic as well. I could easily eat an entire pizza in the past, along with salad, wings and still look for dessert. Now a 300 calorie meal is like “Yup I’m done!” Incredible.

    Pretty middle name Jayne. I have two middle names after my grandmothers. Catherine and Margaret. I have a very long name 🙂 My full name is Kimberly Catherine Margaret Chisholm (before I got married). It was hard fitting that on a drivers license lol.

  2. You may feel huge and gross, but you look thin and beautiful!

    My middle name is Anne. My mom insisted on the E at the end. So, I guess she made a boring, common middle name only slightly less boring and common.

  3. God I need a good meal so bad right now. That wrap looks incredible.

    My middle name is Elizabeth. 🙂

    Anne with an “e” just like Green Gables 🙂

  5. I wish I had a middle name! Sadly my parents didnt think it was necessary 😛

    Popcorn looks delish…:)

    Sigh. I wish I hated high carb days, but I love them way too much ;).

    My middle name is Susan, and I’ve always thought it would have been good as a first name. I could have TOTALLY been a Suzy! But I like Pam, too. They both seem to fit me.

  7. Hate carbs? Shame on you for saying such a think 😉

    My middle name is now my maiden same. My old middle name was Michelle

  8. Actually, I don’t have a middle name. When I was 4 (in 1986) my cousins used to laugh at me because it was odd that I didn’t have one. I used to tell them that my middle name was Madonna. Wow. Yeah. I know. I am oh so special!

    I haven’t quite reached that state – while I am no longer hungry eating smaller, healthier meals – I don’t feel stuffed! Great post & pics, as usual!

    Sounds like a good problem to have! I’m still at the pizza + beer + ice cream stage of things. Though even if that changed, I don’t think I could ever hate a carb day. 🙂

    My middle name is my momma’s name, Lynn.

    Carb days are hard but good I guess. But yeah I do feel a bit bloated after and I dont really like that completely full feeling. Im starting to get used to just eating till the hunger goes away and Im satisfied.

    My middle name is Audrey=) Which alot of people dont know (but I guess now some will! =)

    Refeeds freak me out too. Worried about losing control. … Middle names abundant in our household … Elizabeth Eileen..

    So how many calories do you eat a day? Just curious because I know you follow a certain routine and everything.

    • ihearteggs says:

      Ahh honestly I can’t say off the top of my head how many calories. I go by macros (protein/carbs/fats). I think it’s around 1200 tho!

    I also have a love-hate relationship with carb load days–I love that I get more than a 1/4 cup serving of oats, but I hate that it does make me feel bloated!

    And my middle name is Cecilia–it used to be my great-grandmother’s(?) name. True fact–I used to misspell it “CecElia” haha.
