That was me yesterday.
I snacked all day long, though dinner and after dinner and went to bed feeling just plain bleh.
I actually think my eating frenzy started on Saturday at the Taste of Ocala and the momentum kept up through last night. It was a filling weekend, that’s for sure!
When I think back on what I ate yesterday, I realize I didn’t eat much protein outside of my chicken salad for lunch and found myself snacking on cookies and white cheddar popcorn. (I mean how good it that stuff?) More often than not, eating crap just makes me crave more crap.
I think we all have days like this sometimes and I just try to move on and make the next day healthier. It’s no use giving yourself a hard time and I try to remember how much better I feel on days when my diet is filled with healthier fare. I’m using that thought to motivate me to eat healthy food today!
Healthy food for breakfast came in the form of overnight oats topped with a freshly sliced banana.
This was actually batch number two of overnight oats that I made last night. Batch number one was consumed after dinner as an evening snack. (This happens quite often when I make overnight oats, actually. It’s like they call to me from the fridge.)
I also had a hot mug of crème brulee coffee on the side.
A little caffeine for a productive Monday morning!
Before breakfast, I headed to the gym with Ryan for a quality workout.
I began with a 20 minute treadmill workout that got my heart rate up and left me super sweaty.
Then it was time for some strength training.
I did a total body superset workout that looked like this:

It was a fast-moving workout that challenged me and made my muscles burn. Victory!

Question of the Morning
- What do you do on days when your appetite seems insatiable?
On days when I cannot seem to satisfy my appetite no matter how much I eat, I try to make a cognizant effort to eat healthy snacks that are high in healthy fat and protein, like apple slices with peanut butter or trail mix. I will also try to get out of the house and do something since I find that this feeling often happens to me when I’m at home, procrastinating on something I should be doing like cleaning or freelance work.
I didn’t follow either of these little tricks yesterday though… cookies and white cheddar popcorn simply called to me.
