Can’t Stop Eating….

…….CARBS on this Tuesday, 2/23/10

And, I am un-happy to say that it isn’t because I was hungry but rather because my work day was SLOW and the thought of eating just kept coming to my mind.  So of course I would then venture to the kitchen and do what you may ask???  


Luckily, I was able to keep my CARB eating semi-healthy as the only bad carbs I had were a few handfuls of those darn M&M’s I hid on Friday but keep finding & remembering about. 


Check out all my CARB HEAVY EATS for the day! 



Late Afternoon Snack




So as you can see lots of CARBS were eaten today, however at least I ended my eats with a nice healthy bowl of hamburger veggie soup that is loaded with “9 vegetables” a/k/a “good carbs”!  =) 

Do you ever have days were your body just seems to be craving CARBS???

 50 Ways to Cut 500 Calories a Day

3. Don’t eat in front of the TV. You’ll eat up to 288 calories more, according to research from the University of Massachusetts. Instead, eat at the table, and trade 1 hour of TV for a casual walk. Together, that’s 527 calories burned.


4. Get in tune with your tummy. Pay attention to how full you feel, and put down your fork when you’re satisfied. Listen to your body’s cues—instead of looking at whether the plate is clean—and save up to 500 calories a day.

Can’t stop eating, LITERALLY!!!

Last week was a non-stop eating week for me, luckily my food intake was slightly healthier then the holiday weeks before but I swear I was actually hungrier and had more cravings last week then I did during those 2 weeks, what gives!?!?!  

And, so you can see what I am talking about take a look below at what I ate the last “4” days of week (Thursday through Sunday).  =O

Breakfast (Thursday)

1st Lunch (Thursday)

2nd Lunch (Thursday)

Dinner, 2 Slices (Thursday)

Breakfast (Friday)

1st Lunch (Friday)

2nd Lunch (Friday)

Dinner (Friday)

Breakfast (Saturday)

Lunch (Saturday)

Cake (Saturday)

Dinner (Saturday)

Breakfast (Sunday)

Snack (Sunday)

Dinner (Sunday)

Plus, I also MISSED the gym on Thursday night as I had some car issues that I had to take care of and I also MISSED my long run on Saturday as it was “freezing” outside (literally) and I just do not have the proper clothing to run in such cold temperatures, under 50 degrees, so my work outs for the last part of the week were pretty much shot…….which didn’t  help my eating situation of course as I found myself “snacking” a lot more then I should have or would of have had I gotten to the gym or ouside to run!  =(

So to answer my own question above…..I think it is because I was pretty much off my normal “healthy” eating routine during the last few weeks and now that I am TRYING to get back on track my body is confused and freaking out a bit!  Hence, why it really isn’t a good idea to get so far off track like I did so please don’t make the same mistake, though I am sure I will most likely do it again next year…..=O… least it is only once a year!

Fingers-crossed that this week will be better!!!




Your A-to-Z Guide to a Flat Belly 

 D-Do faster crunches. 

Increasing the speed of your crunches (while still maintaining good form) activates more muscles in your trunk than doing more leisurely reps, according to a study in the Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research. 



 E-Eat eggs.  

Dieters who had two eggs with breakfast whittled their waists more than those who ate the same number of calories but had a bagel instead, research published in the International Journal of Obesity says. (One caveat: You’ll want to limit your eggs to six or fewer per week.) 




F-Flatten with shapewear. 

Some suck-it-in undergarments can make your belly look svelte, says Paige Adams-Geller, founder of Paige Premium Denim and author of Your Perfect Fit. Try ones from Assets (the lower-priced Spanx line) or Yummie Tummie.
