winning the battle - week 11

I didn't step on the scale this morning.

Cravings.  And feeling like I can't get enough food.  Yep, it's that time of the month.  Seriously, I can't get enough food.  For instance, today at lunch I eat a great salad with tuna and crackers, and an hour later I'm starving again.  A snack of an apple with peanut butter and an hour later I'm starving again.  Yogurt and an hour later I'm starving again.  And this has been going on for the past three days.  Ya gotta love the hormones.  Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaarrrrrrrgh!

The good news is I can actually run again.  I'm taking it easy to see how I do, but it feels good.

So goes the battle...

Weird how cravings happen, eh? I find if I eat a handful of almonds or sunflower, pumpkin seeds my cravings go away, and keep me full for a long time. Lost 10 pounds in the past 6 weeks by doing that (and at least 3 L of water). Sometimes our bodies are thirsty instead of hungry.
