About Me

Hi, my name is Angela and welcome to my blog. This is a place where I write about my life in an honest and open way.

I am 34 years old, single, and a Christian. God gave me a heart to work with children and so I spend my day teaching kindergarten. It is my fourth year teaching and although it is hard I love it. I currently go to a college for my BA in Elementary Education which keeps me busy. Between work and school there is not much time left but I enjoy serving and helping others, watching netflix, or reading a good book.

Hungry

I am tired of going to bed hungry. Today I upped my calories and I am, at this point, over by 100 calories so I ate 2000 calories out of my 1900 calories. I spread them out throughout the day, having snacks here and there and yet here I am and I feel like I am starving. Sometimes I am hungry at night, but only for ice cream or chocolate, meaning that it is mental. But right now I would eat anything I just am tired of feeling hungry. I am not sure what I am doing wrong.

10 a.m. - Bowl of Chex 300 cal

Studying my grammar during breakfast.

11 a.m. - Banana chocolate protein drink 300 cal
2 p.m. - Sandwhich, strawberries, and parfait 500 cal
5 p.m - Baby carrots and V8 Fusion 150 cal
6:30 p.m. - Pot pie 650 cal
8 p.m - Happy cow 6 oz ice cream 150 cal

Plenty of calories. Lots of healthy calories. So what is going on? Maybe the pot pie's are not as filling as I thought? I don't know but this kind of sucks.

I was thinking of exercising but maybe my body wants a bowl of cereal instead.

Update: I ate cereal at about 450 calories. I don't feel like I am starving anymore but still feel hungry. Frustrating. I am going to bed to try again tomorrow. Huh

  1. For me, boredom sparks hunger. I used to eat some sort of something every time I was sitting on the couch. It was extremely hard for me to retrain my mental tendencies to realize I only wanted a snack on the couch out of habit. I hope that with your calorie counting that you'll start seeing results in the way you feel, how your clothes fit and the scale so that when you're in the moment of hunger because you want it not because you need it, you'll ask yourself how much it's worth it! Keep up the great work! That smoothie looks DELISH! and I love your travel cup! =)

  2. One extra thought, maybe you need more protein..fruits and veggies are great but they dont' sustain your metabolism. Almonds are a great source and they fix the salt/crunch that fruit just doesn't do!
