Thursday was one of those days where I was hungry all day long. Nothing satisfied me and I was hungry again an hour after eating a meal. I find the fluctuations in my appetite really interesting.
Breakfast was another “Nutty Fruity” smoothie from Berrybrook Farm. I couldn’t stop thinking about how delicious the one I had on Tuesday was! This one had yogurt, bananas, strawberries and almonds.
I spent most of my day at Metro CrossFit teaching class and working open gym. I brought lunch from home and assembled it during open gym. Tomato sandwich on wheat and a salad with spinach, feta and cherry tomatoes. I ate a bag of Wheat Thin Chips that were supposed to go with my lunch about an hour before. I needed a snack!
Yesterday’s workout was a 3 mile run. It was in the 70s and cool so I had to take advantage and get outside. I trained a client after I ran and made her do her warmup out in the parking lot so she could enjoy the fresh air after being at work all day! I actually love the workout I did with her last night and I’m going to post a version of it here soon. It’s dumbbell and stability ball based and I think y’all will love it.
After I left the gym I headed to The Wine Shop to meet all the yogis I went to Punta Cana with for a reunion. What I like about The Wine Shop is that you can pick a bottle from the wine store and drink it in the restaurant. The selection is amazing with some really unique bottles that you won’t find in bigger/chain stores. I chose this Jeff Runquist 1448 red blend. It’s everything I love in a red wine…big body, intense flavors and mostly petit sirah based (my favorite varietal!)
I fed my hungry belly with grilled orkra topped with feta and served with a chipotle aioli. I also couldn’t keep my hand out of some truffle fries that were circulating the table.
And the house sliders with onion jam and blue cheese. These are little burgers of perfection! 🙂
I have a really busy Friday and I am SLAMMED at work right now (and working on launching a new website for the Club!!!!!!) but I’m taking a break for a hair cut and color later this afternoon. It’s been five months so it’s long overdue.
Do you ever have days where you’re crazy hungry? What kind of things to do you eat to tame your belly? I usually try to eat more healthy fats and protein and throw in some extra snacks.
