I worked from my normal office today. Since I was exhausted from getting up early to correspond with people in Illinois, I had some breakfast to wake me up. See? It’s definitely true that not sleeping enough will cause you to eat more. 😛
For lunch, I had my usual salad.
For dinner, I had 1/2c sweet potato and my prepackaged meals of chicken and broccoli. I’ve been upping the broccoli a bit to help with satiety, since I feel like I’ve been eating more (as I’ve been getting less sleep). I’m not sure it’s working, but can you really have too much broccoli?
Diet Log Summary
- Breakfast – 1c egg whites, salsa, 1/4c guacamole
- Lunch – salad with 2oz chicken, assorted vegetables, lemon juice, 2T guacamole
- Snack – 1/2 can sardines packed in oil
- Dinner – 1/2c sweet potato, 3oz chicken, broccoli
Diet Effects Summary
- Side of stomach is a bit sore today. I wonder if it’s because of the extra broccoli over these past few days.
- As I’ve been sleeping less, I’ve been eating more – it’s definitely something I need to work on. 😛 But at least I haven’t been ‘binge eating’. At no point have I felt the ‘loss of control’ that usually comes when I binge. Even when I eat more food than normal, I have trouble eating past satiety (unlike when bingeing). It’s nice to be able to follow my body’s signals of when to stop eating.
- I wish I could give some reports of “amazing energy”, but it’s super difficult to determine how Whole30 has impacted my energy when I have been sleeping a lot less than usual because of my current work and apartment hunting situation. That said, I’ve been impressed at how well I’ve held up – I got out a big feature at work today, and I’ve already looked at 2 apartments. Tomorrow, I’ll be looking at 2 more. All of that, with 2-hour one-way commuting. Maybe Whole30 is giving me more energy? I’ve had similarly exhausting weeks in the past where I was basically “out of order” on Thursday and Friday because I had done so much earlier in the week. We’ll see!
