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.
