JustAMom Posted October 31, 2013 Share Posted October 31, 2013 Before I started the daily exercise routine, I was doing pretty good on few or no snacks. I'm presuming I'm not getting enough and that's why I'm hungry, but considering I still need to lose 25lb, I want to be sure I'm not over eating. Here is my general routine Get up Have a couple cups of black coffee Do my walk away the pounds ultimate 5 day walk plan DVD Drink a big glass of lemon ginger water while I make breakfast of 3 eggs scrambled in a tbsp of ghee and cut up half an avocado. (I actually make four eggs and cut a whole avocado, but God's Little Diet Plan aka the breastfeeding 2 year mooch eats one of the eggs and half the avocado.) Shower and get going with my day. A few hours later I have a couple apples sliced with cashew butter Then lunch. Usually fish bc it's so quick to make with a veggie like sweet potato or roasted squash. Dinner is a meat of some sort with salad or veggie. If I skip the apples and cashew snack mid day, I feel like I'm dying of hunger before bed. But this seems like a lot of food? If it matters, I'm logging my food in my fitness pal for nutrient content. (I tend to be anemic) and my calorie count has never been above 2000 even eating all that. Yes, I know I should eat breakfast first thing in the morning, but every time I eat as soon as I get up or right before exercise, I don't eat much and I feel nauseated and sluggish. I just want to crawl back into bed and sleep and I have a hard time finishing the walk plan. By the time I've had a couple cups of coffee, everything seems to have settled and I exercise and then seem good to go. If I don't exercise in the morning, I don't exercise. For better or worse, that's my reality and I figure it's better to have breakfast out of order and exercise each day. Suggestions? Opinions?
