Note: This is NOT the recipe I used, but similar
I didn't have much of the cake, but it did put me over on my points for the day - and I was still feeling like I could eat. Suddenly it dawned on me .... I hadn't drank water ALL day! Nothing - not even juice. Just a few cups of tea in the morning. Normally I take a large bottle of water with me to work, then refill it at least once or twice when I get home. I had forgotten it yesterday and was thoroughly parched by the time I finally drank. No wonder I was tired & munchy.
After I downed the water though I was still tired, so off to be at 9pm. I'm surprised I slept through the night, and was even still a bit sleepy when the alarm went off at 6am.
This morning was another 4 mile run with my husband. We chose a local trail and it was at least as beautiful as the yesterday. My dog, Little Miss Tia, MUCH prefers the trails and she had a blast. The trail we took is VERY hilly so our pace was much slower than yesterday. But it was lovely!
When we got back I felt like I was starving! Had a bigger breakfast than usual. But I also feel the twinge of a little cramp that tells me that this extra hunger today and yesterday is signs of a visitor arriving soon. I will have to be very mindful in the next few days to only eat as my body needs, not as it craves.
This weekend I'm taking my daughter shopping, going to a friend's BBQ, the kids are having friends over to use the waterslide and have a campfire. There will also be a long run, and a run with friends. And LOTS of shredding (or shred-style workouts as I say). Possibly some horse riding and/or bike riding too. Ahhh, the last weekend of summer before all the craziness begins. Have a great long weekend everyone!!
