Yesterday was a tough day. For some reason I was starving all day long. I typically have just a small amount to eat before we head to the gym because we go so early and right after we wake up, so I had a small handful of raisins and peanuts along with water. I was hungry as soon as I got home so I had a dried apricot before showering. Then, breakfast like usual and by the time our bi-weekly 'breakfast club' came around at 10am I was hungry already, a mere two hours later! The trend continued most of the day and I ended up snacking way more than usual because I really was more than just a little hungry. I drank a good amount of tea and water throughout the day as well, so it wasn't just that I needed to drink more water. It was quite annoying.
I made it out of work and to the gym in time for Zumba! I haven't gone since the first time nearly a month ago. I was struggling a little for the first few routines but then got into the groove. The class was packed, which I imagine is a weekly occurrence, but there was a woman in front of me who has obviously been doing it for a while, so I was was able to watch her whenever I couldn't see the instructor. I told her this, and she seemed to be a little flattered. Thankfully she wasn't weirded out! The class was great and once I got into it, the time flew by and before I knew it we were doing the cool down. I've scheduled this class in my calendar and plan to go each week. It's a great way for me to have some fun, let loose, get fit and expand my fitness horizons!
Thankfully I wasn't as hungry after class as I had been all day. I was planning to make a TJ's frozen veggie pizza (we always add tons of veggies on top) but instead decided to have a big fresh salad instead and let Woody enjoy the pizza and take the leftovers to work tomorrow. In my bowl: lettuce mix, hericot verts, broccoli, corn, squash, zucchini, a laughing cow cheese wedge and pear. It was just what I needed!
How do you like to rebound from a 'hungry day'?
Do you ever add fruit to your salads?
How's the weather where you are? Did you get a snow day today?
