Not hungry, but not full

Another night at work and all I've been doing is grazing, grazing, grazing. I'm not exactly hungry but I'm not full either. I'm just not filling up. Although, I have to sadly admit, that I am definitely feeling full right now after eating a muffin and a half from BJ's. So you can just imagine. Industrial sized muffins. I probably just ate the equivalent of 3 regular sized muffins. Ugh! So now, I'm full. I think the problem is that I didn't bring enough good protein with me. I brought a lot of snacks but I should have had more protein to go with them. I keep thinking "hard boiled eggs!" Pure protein right there! I had an egg sandwich before I came in thinking that would hold me over, and it did, for the requisite 3 hours but since then, all I've been doing is eating every hour on the hour. Pretty sure I'm done at this point. Just going to fill up my liter water bottle again and just sip from that until I go home.

Thinking of making meatloaf tonight. Not Al's favorite but I'm hoping he'll come around. I found a great recipe on Epicurious for bison meatloaf. With mashed red potatoes! Yummy comfort food at half the fat! I also have been thinking a lot about finding a place to run again. Quite a while back one summer I was running at the high school track and a couple of times a week on the road and although I hated it while I was doing it, I always felt great after. There is only one high school in the area that has a rubber track so I'm thinking if I can motivate myself to get up and get there before school starts that maybe I can start interval running again. Just a thought! It beats walking on our road day after day. Maybe I'll even check it out today to try to work off this damn muffin taking up residence on my ass already!


  1. Eggs are great for protein, but it also helps to mix protein and fiber. A lowfat cheese stick and an apple....veggies and hummus....roasted chickpeas are all good snacks with protein to keep you full.

  2. Oooh! I LOVE roasted chickpeas! yum!
