Hi there! How are you feeling?
For several days in a row, I found myself wanting to eat before bed. This was new (well, it's old behaviour, but new again since I started the program), so I took a look at my food and activity journal and eureka! The answer was right there.
I’ve been exercising often and I’d increased the intensity of each workout, so I was burning through my reserves and leaving nothing in the tank. Basically, I needed more food to fuel my regular life plus the enhanced exercise routine.
As soon as I added a bit more – an extra small apple or handful of veggies, maybe half a dozen more almonds or some cheese – to each meal and snack, I lost the urge for that evening extra.
Have you adjusted your eating and activity this week – either on purpose or because life just sat up and demanded it?
