Oh, Hi! It’s Wednesday already. I say already because this week feels like a fast blur which sometimes happens when I don’t post on Tuesdays. Did I miss anything yesterday? Please fill me in!
Let’s take a look at what I ate on Monday which was a day I would consider a normal appetite day. My appetite changes by day, usually ranging from OMG I am starving today!! to OK I feel normal today. Saturday night (or was it Sunday morning?) I was up eating at 1:00 am because the intense hunger I was experiencing was keeping me from sleeping. Luckily that doesn’t happen often and usually, when it does, it comes after a long run.
So long as I eat when I feel I need to and keep going until satisfied, I can usually keep things under control. Keyword: Usually.
I eat oatmeal every single day, both pre and post run. I always have oatmeal before I run because it works the best for me and I don’t care to mess with that. If on occasion I have gone with toast instead, I find myself hungry while running. And although sometimes I do make a 3-ingredient pancake after a run, 9 times out of 10, I choose oatmeal.
I make four servings of oatmeal at a time to have for a few days. I cook a pot of 2 servings steel-cut oats plus 2 servings of old-fashioned rolled oats with chia seeds and then divide the servings into bowls, storing them in my refrigerator.
Each morning I take out a serving from the fridge, heat some up with banana before my run and then finish the serving after my run.
Here is my post-run oatmeal mixed with banana, Skoop B-Strong (best protein powder there is) and a few blueberries in an almost-empty peanut butter jar.
It had been a while since I had an empty peanut butter jar since I haven’t been eating as much peanut butter so this was a real treat 🙂
The French toast bagels from Stew Leonard’s have seriously stolen my heart. I like when I can get them from the store still warm OR if I bring them home, I like to toast one up real good. This French toast bagel is super toasted with eggs and organic raspberry preserves.
I know the diet industry people tell you to cut out bagels and replace them with whole grains, lower calorie/less carby bread choices but when you want a bagel, no English muffin, whole wheat bread or Ezekiel bread, as much as I love it, is going to satisfy you.
I like to eat my bagels open-faced even though I cut them as a sandwich.
I have been eating watermelon every day, all day. Thankfully the price is slowly coming down to acceptable as we approach summer.
I made a quick and easy shrimp stir fry (similar to this recipe) only this one in particular contains sliced portobello mushrooms for a change (I think they are at the bottom so you can’t really see them).
Trader Joe’s had Honey Crisp apples the other day so I had to buy some. I really like apples lately when sprinkled with Skoop B-Strong for added sweetness plus a crumbled mini dark chocolate bar.

How often does your appetite wake you up at night? Does it usually correlate to a long run or race?
