So Hungry!

Is this normal? I went to sleep last night and awoke to what I typically call the "Sunday night demons," you know, the list of things that you have to do for the week start creeping into your head and keep you awake with worry/anticipation/excitement, whatever. I thought that was what woke me up, but I couldn't shake it...then I realized it wasn't my brain that jolted me from sleep, but my stomach! I went downstairs chugged some water and slammed some cheese and crawled back in bed and was out within 30 seconds. I don't think this has ever happened...I physically had to eat something in the middle of the night! Don't get me wrong, I'm not depriving myself of any calories right now. It seems that all I am doing is eating...I find myself eating my afternoon snack my 10:30 in the morning and praying that we can go to lunch at 11:30 instead of 12:00! It's probably the best thing ever because even though I'm eating like a hog, people keep saying "you look like you've lost weight"...I mean, someone pinch me, my dream has come true! ;)

Since I overslept on Friday and couldn't work my day to make it to the pool I decided to make Friday my off day, switching with Sunday. So, yesterday I rocked the 4,500 meters I had planned to do on Friday. It was a great swim! Did a 600 warm up, then 1x800, 2x400, 4x200, 8x100 and then a 700 cool down. My lane was on the same interval as the "fast lane" so I didn't get much rest at all...most rest between sets was about 15 seconds. So, the swim was pretty continuous and almost non-stop on some sets...2.4 miles, here I come!...maybe that's why I was so friggin' hungry!!

Cash noshing after a nice 8 mile hike last weekend...this is what I feel like, head in my feed bag at all times!


  1. I used to keep fig newtons on the bed stand, yes, totally normal. Eating a dinner at lunch time, normal. Finishing your friend's plate when they're done, you guessed it, normal. Feed the horse, you gotta do it!

  2. Oh man - when I wake up at 5 to ran/bike/swim whatever..I am starving!!! I eat all of the freaking time. "Is that an orange in your purse Chloe" ... "you bet! AND I have an apple to!"

  3. um i wake up every single night around 2am and eat. sometimes granola out of the box, sometimes a zone bar - i am an eating machine!
