So this week I thought I’d participate along for the traditional WIAW Blogger round up (usually hosted by Peas & Crayons, this week hosted by Sprint to The Table) and focus on week 18 in the 52 Weeks to 52 Healthy Habits goal. If you missed it, this week is a kick off mini series about intuitive eating, specifically gaging hunger cues, make sure to check it out! So here we go!
6:00AM: Monday morning was a bit hectic, we got up earlier than usual so Mr. Hungry could drop his car off at the shop, his AC wasn’t working which is terrible in Arizona. So I jumped out of bed to get his stuff together for him while he got ready.
6:15AM: after he left I went on a cleaning WORLD WIND- dishes, counter tops, etc.
6:45AM: I stopped for 20 minutes to ensure my post was up and no problems and feed Nala. She decides she isn’t ready for breakfast, I freak out because Ridgebacks don’t EVER turn down food, but I try not to panic by 7:30 she decides she wants it.
7:45AM: Nala and I head out for our daily walk, we walk fast and cover 2.75 miles in 45 minutes.
8:30AM: I’m definitely hungry (maybe like a 6-7) and can not wait for breakfast. I make scrambled eggs (1/3 cup whites, 1 ounce buffalo chicken meat, 1 medium egg) with 1/2 sliced avocado, topped with a decent amount of chula sauce and garlic salt.
9:00AM: COFFEE TIME with 1T collagen powder and 1T half and half.
11:00AM: I’m kind of hungry (maybe like a 3 or 4) so I grab a handful of sunflower seeds.
12:45PM: My hunger has worked it’s way back up to a solid 6 and climbing, it is time for lunch! For meal prep this week I made turkey burgers and roasted broccoli for myself, I heat that up and throw it over salad with mustard as a dressing.
1:45PM: I head to Starbucks to enjoy an iced green tea and large water while I work away. In the afternoons I get more distracted then the morning at home so I try to get out of the house to get all my work done. Mondays are writing days, I try to get as many of the posts for the week started as possible so I’m not stressing about them and writing posts at midnight (as I edit this at 11:15pm on Tuesday night).
3:00PM: I’m starting to get hungry but I’m at Starbucks and don’t want to buy food, I’m confident I can make it to 4:15pm when I pick up Mr. Hungry from work without getting too hungry.
4:45PM: I get home from picking up Mr. Hungry from work and eat a quest bar before I go train.
I also have a half scoop of essential amino in 4 ounce of water. I usually do UCAN but I’m feeling I need something a little heartier.
7:00PM: Handful of pretzels when I get home as I head up to shower. I’m actually a little nauseous from chugging too much water too fast after a hard legs workout, hoping the pretzels and a shower will help.
7:30PM: I’m about a 5-6 level hunger, I snack on Tuna while I mix it up with avocado and make tuna melts in brown rice quesadilla with havarti cheese for dinner. (To celebrate World Tuna Week of course! If you missed it be sure to check out my post: Four Ways To Use Canned Tuna.)
9:00PM: I snack on a half of banana & dark chocolate while I read the pile of magazines and journals that has been accumulating!
11:00PM: Lights out!
