Good morning people! I am writing this on Tuesday morning (and night) and right now I am in awe.
I did a brick workout this AM of both running and biking (easy) and didn’t get home for about three hours after I started. Usually I am ravenous by this time, but find myself oddly still satisfied. I’m not hungry. At all. I know exercise has an effect on appetite. It kills it. But I know my body. If I go this long, I will be hungry because I’ve gone through the stages of losing my appetite and now my stomach would have caught up and made me HUNGRY.
Right now though, as I dive into breakfast, I’m still not hungry. I’m content. I would be fine to wait.
This fat thing really is great!
Let me explain, because I haven’t wanted sugar like I normally do, but still want to eat enough calories for my lifestyle, I’ve been eating a lot more fat. Nuts and seeds mostly, but also avocado and oils. This was weird at first and yesterday for example I was kind of bloated for the day. I ignored it because who the heck really cares as long as I can still work, run and be happy? Break out the yoga pants and I’m game!
Ok, now lets get onto WIAW. Thanks to Jenn for the party!
One thing that is taking some getting used to with the increase in fat is that my eyes are bigger than my stomach. I often find myself thinking my bowl of food is small, so I serve myself more, and then either cannot finish it or are really full when I am done. Fat really can be filling.

Wrap with sunflower butter and banana. Bowl o’greens on the side.

And now for some deep thinking:
What did you do on leap day?
When is a time your eyes have been bigger than your stomach?
What is your favorite type of apple?
