Stuffed

This weekend I let things slide a bit and definitely had my points on the high end. Not outrageous, just higher than usual.

Today though was right back on track and even though I've had less points today than the last two days, I'm sitting here at 9PM still stuffed from my small dinner at 7. It's rather strange. I've been finding that it doesn't take very much food to fill me up for the last little while.

Here's today's menu:

Breakfast - Red River Cereal (2)
Lunch - 4 c. raw veggies, President's Choice Canneloni (4)
Snack - All Bran Oatmeal Bar, 1 c. grapes, 1 slice watermelon, 4 strawberries (4)
Dinner - 3/4 c. pasta with 1/4 c. alfredo sauce, 3 oz. chicken breast, 1 mini carrot (I couldn't eat anymore) - (8)

Total Points - 18 and I'm stuffed

Exercise - Nothing, had alot to do today and am really tired

I've been noticing something different with me lately. For years my husband has always said that whenever he exercises, as soon as he stops he sweats heavily. Recently my son said he has the same thing. I've never had this. I do sweat during exercise, but it's pretty steady and not usually much. That is until now. Just in the last couple weeks I notice I've been having the same reaction. As long as I'm exercising I sweat a bit but not much, and the moment I stop it just goes crazy. I mentioned this to my friend and she said it's because my metabolism is faster. Any thoughts on this??? That sure would be nice if that was the case.

I am feeling fuller lately too, maybe not full but I just don't feel like eating, maybe it's the warmer weather, I have been eating alot of salad lately :-)

Good for you for getting back into the swing of things so quickly!

I do that sweat-after thing, too, and I've been wondering about it. Nice to know I'm not the only one. :)

I've never heard of an after sweating reaction. But,I don't seem to sweat much even during exercise, so I'm not much help.
