Munchie Monster Be Gone

Put a stop on the munchie monster yesterday!  I knew it would be a bit of a battle with being so tired and all. 

I had not packed an adequate lunch, so by early afternoon I was hungry and sent my boss a message begging (half-joking) for some snackies.  He spoils me rotten so I wasn't surprised when he came back with yoghurt and a bag of pretzels.  I devoured the yoghurt first, then when I felt I was getting carried away with the pretzels I literally threw them across the office to my boss and told him to ban them from me.

When I got home the munchies hit again and I found myself with my hand in a bag of potato chips I found at my MIL's.  After a couple of handfuls I shook my head and went and ate an early dinner.  I actually recognized that it wasn't true hunger that was fueling the munchies.

After that was the MUCH needed nap, then I squeezed in a short, easy 3.3 mile run before crashing for the night.  I'm kinda proud that I didn't let it get out of hand, and that I still fit in my scheduled run.

Today I am still a bit tired, but recovering.  I'm sure it will take a couple days to catch up, but I'll get there.

Keep Active!

did you know the average piece of junk food has a million spider legs in it.....
ok that's totally a lie but maybe you can train your brain to think that way ;-)
Love ya!

It's a MAJOR step to realize that it was just "munchie" eating. I get the same way when I'm tired. Or bored. Or sad. Or happy. Or.... you get the idea. :)

I think the winter just brings a case of the munchies with it! Good for you for overcoming the munchie monster! :)

You've beaten the monster mostly yesterday. I'm sure you kicked it's ass today and told it not to come back.

I'm proud of you too that you went for a run even though you were so tired

Good for you. I had a rough day with having treats that I was having a hard time resisting. I thought that I had packed enough in my lunch, but I think that I need more protein or fiber to help!

They call that an NSV in Weight Watcher land. Way to go Heidi. Kick that munchie monster's ass to the curb!
