Ever have one of those days where you feel like you’re basically eating non-stop? Welcome to my yesterday. To be honest, it was just a strange day overall. In addition to spending the better part of the day feeling tired and cranky, I also couldn’t seem to fill the black hole that decided to form in my belly. It’s been a while since I’ve had a day where I’ve felt this ravenous, but yesterday more than made up for the absence…
Things started out reasonably enough… I woke up early and set about making my morning tea…
I usually spend a little bit of time on the computer before making breakfast, but my stomach just wasn’t having it, so I ended up
having needing breakfast around 6 AM…
Plain Greek yogurt – banana – Kashi Cinanmon Harvest – Puffins – applesauce – roasted almond butter.
I finished that bowl still feeling a little bit munchy, but decided to wait it out for a bit. You know… stomach to brain lag and all. Turns out lag wasn’t the issue, but hunger definitely was, so I followed things up with a quick snack before running out the door…
Work was rough. Cranky and hungry definitely don’t make for a good combination, and I ended up having my daily capp in the morning as opposed to the afternoon in an attempt to keep myself civil.
It worked. I’ve [probably] said it before and I’ll say it again… there’s nothing coffee can’t fix; but my relief was short lived – it wasn’t long until my mind began to wander to thoughts of lunch…
1 cup milk – 1 banana – ½ cup frozen blueberries – ½ scoop vanilla protein powder – 1 spoonful of AB
It’s been a while since I’ve had a smoothie in place of a meal, but nothing else sounded remotely appealing – strange considering I probably would have eaten cardboard if you spread a little bit of honey on it. I used to
laugh shake in my booties at the idea of ‘eating’ a smoothie, terrified that it would leave me hungry again in no time, but this actually managed to hold me over pretty well. And then the afternoon snack monster hit…
Annie’s Snack Mix.
Greek yogurt and applesauce.
Rye bread with almond butter and molasses.
Yup. Afternoons are definitely snacky around these parts, and I found myself constantly in the kitchen in an attempt to keep myself sane. I may have mentioned this before, but I don’t do so well when I’m hungry. I also may have mentioned that I’m trying to add a little bit of variety to my eats, so I got [semi] creative with dinner…
WW noodles – broccoli – eggs scrambled with spinach and pasta sauce – hummus – avocado.
… which I later followed up with one of these…
… before finally calling it a day. Phew. Thankfully, things seem to be back to normal today – no ridiculous appetite [yet] and I’m feeling back to my old self in terms of energy and mood. Here’s hoping it sticks around!

Follow a healthy food pattern and try and eat at home as much as possible.
The body finally begins to burn abnormal fat and once this takes place,
the dieter will begin to feel weak and hungry until he gives up.
Some companies are selling inferior products to make a quick buck,
so you never know what you get when you purchase these hormone drops online,

With havin so much content do you ever run into any issues
of plagorism or copyright infringement? My site has a lot of
unique content I’ve either authored myself or
outsourced but it appears a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my permission. Do you know any techniques
to help stop content from being ripped off?
I’d definitely appreciate it.
gotta love those bottomless pit days. Soetimes it’s fun to just kinda go to town on food, but after awhile (for me) it gets old – I’m like okaayyyy can I be satisfied long enough to do something productive?? lolz. Everything you ate today looks delicious though! Especially your dinner….I’m a huge pasta girl but the sauce/hummus/eggs combo is somthing I’d never thought of – looks amazing though. And hey – Capps are a-okay ANY time of day 😀
How do you stop at such a small nighttime snack? I eat like 500+ calories at night (last night was 2 squares chocolate, 3 clementines, 2.5 tablespoons of peanut butter with egg whites and yogurt ..and a “muffin” treat). Oh my, I’m so lost.
I have a lot of gas buidlup in my body and I’m popping gas-x which obviously is limitedi in its use.
I’m so chained to my eating habits like.
You are so tiny girl, Please eat LOTS . You work and think and function better than I (you can convey your thoughts in a sensible manner 🙂 ) . Are you still doing zero exercise? PLEASE let me know honestly. I’m struggling in a TINy province in eastern canada with major snowstorms (I mean MAJOR, can’t leave the house for days 🙁 And with me eating so poorly and having bathroom “issues’ this obviously is not good. Ugh. WISH I could sit down with u and you could sraigten me out 🙂
Need a roommate in Alberta? Or know anyone who does?
Also, can you tell me a good online website to order protein powder from? FOr a CHEAP option for someone in Canada?
I LOVE greek yogurt but haven’t had it in 2 days and am having MAJOR withdrawls. I’m afraid I ought to try to “eliminating” it for a while…having “issues” similar to “Lisa Lately” I think where my excessive consumption of dairy and eggs (I eat like 2 whole eggs + 3/4 cup egg whites per day no joke) is causing issues. Oh my nerves.
Why do I write you these negative novels? I tell myself everyday to be bouncy and positive and light but I keep dwelling on the binging (EMOTIONAL, not physical in my case ) and dwelling on my guts and cramps and everything. Jeez, I need to really Change, but I’m not even sure what I need to do to change. Or I know but I’m not “readY’ for it? (if that makes sense).
Okie dokie, I’ll shut up now.
Amanda @ .running with spoons.
I’m still not doing any kind of workouts, Jill – I walk daily and that’s about it. As for the protein powder, I can’t really help you there because I don’t buy mine online. Actually, it’s been forever since I’ve bought any… I’m just trying to use up what I have and then I won’t be purchasing any more.
Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin
I definitely have ravenous days like that too! My parents always joke that I’m like their teenage son rather than their 23 year old daughter. 😛
I’m not a big fan of smoothies for a meal… I much prefer solid food. But I love them for snacks in the summers. I can’t even think about having a smoothie right now though – it’s way too cold!!
My breakfast time totally depends on my schedule/hunger level. Sometimes I’m starving at 6:30 am, but sometimes I don’t get hungry until 9. I just go with the flow!
so weird when you get those days right! where you just feel like a bottomnless pit aha..its always on my leg days! figured i need the fuel!
Sara @my less serious life
ahhhh you had a smoothie too! not a green one but i love it. i have been having a lot of these super snacky days to and i am so busy i am just going with it – otherwise the hunger occupys my head too much. ya know/? plus if i don’t listen to it – i end up on the floor covered in cookies at the end of the day. better to satisfy your appetite with healthy choices in small bits throughout the day – like you did here!
I’m currently having one of those days today, and you know what.. BRING ON THE FOOD BABY!!!! =)
Glad you honored your hunger! Some days our metabolism runs much faster. So I’m sure you needed the nourishment
Laura @ Sprint 2 the Table
I sleep in… I get up around 8 and don’t eat until 9. But I have my last meal at midnight!
Sara @ Nourish and Flourish
I feel like I’m eating non-stop every day, because…well, I am! 🙂 I sit down to balanced meals every 2-3 hours now, which means I’m ALWAYS full. The frequent meal thing is definitely an adjustment, however my stomach is sloooowly expanding (thank goodness!). I think snacking is a fun way to eat – and the style I gravitate towards – but since beginning my bulk, I’ve realized that picking at things throughout the day never truly satisfied me. Now those desires are completely gone! It feels so strange! That doesn’t mean I don’t dip my spoon in the peanut butter jar every now and then, though. Some things will NEVER change. 😉
Amanda @ .running with spoons.
That’s really encouraging to hear, Sara! I’ve actually been playing around with the idea of bulking up my meals and snacking less to see if it makes a difference, because yeah… constantly picking away at things isn’t really all that satisfying 😕
You are not alone! Haha I have many ravenous days 🙂
Brittany @ GOtheXtraMile
Yup, I’ve definitely had those days!! I just embrace them and eat away haha. All of your snacks look delicious!
I definitely have had days like this and I agree with you smoothies do seem to fill me up, especially if I add the right ingredients. Your pictures look so pretty and I love the Minnie mug!
I’m definitely having one of those bottomless pit days- I think it’s because I’ve been awake since 5:30 this morning and have been on the go since! Wednesdays are my long days- at both the hospital and office so I think that’s why I eat so much – I just finished dinner about 1/2 hour ago and I’m already thinking about my next snack!! Nothing wrong with these these kind of days – I actually enjoy them!! 🙂
Nope, definitely not alone in ravenous days! But I find that snacking throughout that kind of a day doesn’t do much to quell my hunger. I have to eat a bigger meal (or two) in place of those snacks to actually fill up. I also find that on days I exercise more, I’m way hungrier the following day…. so I’ve gotten better about listening to my body instead of listening to some ridiculous idea in my head about staying hungry so I could lose weight! Bleh, never doing that again… it sucks too much!
I eat breakfast as soon as I get done doing my makeup (which only takes like 10 minutes). I hate getting up super early though if I have to for some random work meeting or whatever, because I know it’s going to make me hungrier all day eating so much earlier!
Also, I kind of agree with Jess’s comments above. I think I’ve mentioned this before or saw someone else comment on it, but you really have NOTHING to worry about in terms of weight gain because you are clearly on the smaller side and likely do under-eat by just enough. And while you’ve said this a million times — that you don’t show/talk about everything you eat (and I can imagine if I blogged, not snapping a photo of EVERY. THING. I. EAT) — I can’t help but think that you might be under-eating. (My dinners are always at least 500 calories, and I know that many of your prepared Annie’s type meals are about 300, so it really puts things in perspective for me.)
The reason this is important, is that eating slightly larger meals may make you happier in the long run! Just a thought 🙂
Amanda @ .running with spoons.
I’ve actually been thinking about bulking up my meals and snacking less often to see if it’s more satisfying. I’ll have a post up about it soon 🙂
