Today I'm talking about hunger, since I slowed down on my running I had forgotten about how ravenous I get when I run. It's silly really and I know it kind of makes sense but I go way overboard. I really thinking keeping my eating in check is one of the hardest parts about running for me. I ran on Saturday (SYTO 5K) and again on Sunday (sprints, yuck!) and by Sunday evening I felt like I could eat everything in our entire pantry.
I tried to keep it healthy at first, opting for a low-fat cheese stick, then an hour later I had a yogurt.
After the yogurt I had a glass of milk...then some crackers...then a Kinder chocolate...then some left over homemade Mac and Cheese (Paula Deen's recipe, you can imagine how healthy it is)...then another Kinder chocolate. My point is, I cannot stop eating.
The thing is I feel like I have no self-control when I've run and it kills me because I know I had it at some point, you don't lose 75 pounds without some freaking' self-control. So, I want to know, do any of you have this problem and if you do what do you do to help minimize this effect? I'm already thinking that I might need to chug some water as soon as I get done, I know I don't drink enough right away but maybe you guys have some tricks that work better, let me know because lord knows my ass cannot keep up since there is no way I burn that many calories.
