Late Lunch = Unhappy Tummy

3 Dec

Now, it’s not like I sit there with a clock and time out every morsel I am going to eat. I know that I am supposed to eat small meals every 3 hours or so but really, who can do that? Not people who have to work that’s who! lol.

At work I tend to eat brekkie around 8:30am, have a mid morning snack of fruit around 11am then lunch at 1pm and finally dinner at home. It works. 🙂 Today however, that did not happen. I got my breakfast on time but wasn’t really feeling my mid morning snack of a banana – which is all good cause while I normally eat a morning snack it’s not a big deal if I don’t. I really should have eaten the banana. I didn’t get lunch till 3pm, 3 pm!! I thought I was gonna die I was so hungry! What, in all my brilliance did I do when I finally got my lunch? I practically inhaled it. Ugh.

We all know by now that eating fast is bad, sigh. You tend to over eat if you eat too quickly and eating fast causes digestion issues. By the time I was done eating I was already feeling a bit uncomfie in my tummy, about ten minutes after I was at a tummy ache level, ugh. Nobody likes a tummy ache! It kinda sucks when you know what caused it and it’s your own fault, lol, cause really, who ya gonna blame?

I thought it would pass relatively quick but it didn’t, I was left feeling achey and uncomfie the rest of the day. By the time I got home, around 6pm or so it seemed to have past and I was quite hungry. This struck me as odd, I thought I wouldn’t be hungry until later since I ate lunch later, but meh, if my tummy is hungry at it’s normal dinner time that’s cool with me. So I ate and what happened? As soon as I had food in me the uncomfie sensation was back, wtf?! I of course indulged in my cure-all, which means I had a cup of tea lol, it didn’t help, sadness. 😦

I don’t know why my tummy is so achey today, I blame it on the late lunch and eating it way too quickly, shrug, so it’s my own fault – which I think makes it suck more. lol. I have one more point of food today and I s’pose I could eat a one point werther’s chocolate but my tummy is so unhappy I really don’t want to put anything in it, shrug. Guess today will be a 1 point under day. 🙂

Oh, so tomorrow is weigh in day…nervous! I really want to do well since if I do well that will mean I have hit the 20lbs lost mark, so think good thoughts for me! 😀 😀 😀

I was watching a weight loss show the other day and the lady trying to lose weight started at, hmmm, crap, I can’t remember the starting weight but by the end she had lost like 17lbs (in 6 weeks! bitch. 😛 ) and I was kinda cranky that it only took her 6 weeks to lose 17lbs and it took me waaaaaaay longer to lose that much. So, when she was at her lower weight she is of course crazed happy and exclaiming about it and I realized, that yeah, she lost 17lbs but I actually weigh less then her, how weird is that?! I never weigh less then anybody is seems but on weight loss tv shows lately I will think “oh, I weigh around what that person weighs” but then I stop and think about it and realize I don’t…I weigh less…wow. It’s such an amazing feeling. I know I still have a long way to go to get to my goal but seeing that I weigh less then a bunch of people who are on tv to lose weight, well, wow.

Oh, btw, the tv shows I was watching are Bulging Brides and The Last 10 Pounds Bootcamp…if you haven’t seen them, watch ’em! They are good! They are hosted by Tommy Europe and Nadine Somebody-Or-Other. He is the trainer, she is the food person. Together they whip people (mostly women) in to shape. 🙂

The Bulging Brides get 6 weeks, the Last Ten Pounds people get 4 weeks…they get amazing results…well, as long as the person does what they are told! lol. It’s never an extreme plan either, it’s watching your calories and exercise and each show Tommy tailors the exercise regime for that person. I like watching it cause I get ideas of different exercises I can do and what benefit they will have for me. 🙂  Well, that and it’s fun to watch someone else suffer, lol. 😛

Today I ate:

50 grams shreddies = 3 points

1/2 cup 1% milk =1 point

1 Italian Sausage and Penne Bowl = 5 points

1 triangles light laughing cow cheese = 1 point

1 Activia yogurt = 2 points

mixed raw vegg = 0 points

1 cup Maple Baked Beans = 4 points

2 pieces toast = 2 points

1 tbls light peanut butter = 2 points

Total points eaten = 20.

So, yah? I am gonna count it as a win, lol, since I was worried I’d go over my points today cause of messing up my eating schedule. I think being 1 point under is way better then being over – some people might argue against that, and yes, I know why going over isn’t the end of the world, what with flex points an all. But the night before weigh in, what can I say, I prefer to be under eating by 1 point then going over, so sue me. 😛
