Day 395: Halloween Edition!



I cannot believe it’s already almost November! I also cannot believe how much I love Halloween! It was a pretty awesome Halloween even though no trick-or-treaters came to visit our house. Awe well, maybe next year. Anyways, today was another of grazing and my metabolism being kicked in to high gear. It feels like I am just continuously hungry and I’m hoping it is my metabolism instead of something bad. I don’t know. My body has been in it’s own world ever since I went down to the 28 point daily allotment. I don’t know if it’s enough because I have been really bad about counting or staying within my points. I’m really going to start working on that.

Breakfast: I had a wafflewich sans bananas. It was a good start to the day as always.


Lunch: Today was the Halloween lunch party/costume contest at work! I wasn’t really sure what to wear, but I eventually came up Tom Cruise in Risky Business. (I think I pulled it off pretty well if I do say so myself.) Anyways, we had Gumby’s Pizza which was pretty good (first time Gumby-er) and then I had half of a little divinity bar with reese’s pieces on top. I know I have been whining about everything in regards to this lull/rut in my weight loss journey, but you you can see from this pic in 2009, you can tell I have made some strides when you compare these pics. Pretty awesome stuff.


Running: I was going to go run in the morning, but sleep is so much more in vogue right now in Switzerland so I went the trendy route and slept in. So this evening I went out for a 3 mile run for my 10k training. I decided to do a 5k (what’s more .11 mile?) and it was rough because my quads were sore, but I’m still okay with my time. I’m going to try to keep my 5k time down below 33 minutes from now on so we’ll see how that goes. Anyways, overall it was a pretty good run! I have another 3 mile run on Wednesday and then a 5 miler on Friday. That should be fun…

Dinner: I had some leftover chicken and rice which wasn’t really filling enough because I was starving. This led up to mass grazing. After I ran I did have a pb sandwich, and then I had some pistachios, a piece of pie, some pumpkin seeds and other stuff. Then I went and picked up Megan from a long meeting so we went to Moe’s so she could have dinner so I had some chips and salsa. I think I need to eat more protein or something because I’m just not full after meals. Hmmm… Well tomorrow, I am going to actually count my points and see where I’m at. Wait… count out points? Who does that? Oh yeah… See ya tomorrow.

  1. I know whenever I exercise a lot I get hungry more. See if you can find a food like rice where you can eat a lot of it and give you less points. Also maybe increase fiber too

  2. On days I go to the gym, I eat a big breakfast with the bf, say at around 2pm, then at about 7pm I eat a half of a peanut butter sandwich. 9pm I’m off to the gym. When I come home, I usually down 2 bottles of water and wait an hour. Then I don’t feel anywhere near as hungry, and I can eat a normal meal and be good for the night. Sometimes I snack later for no good reason, but I’ve still been managing to stay within a point or two of my dailies. Schedule is very important to me though.
