My trainer suggested some changes in my eating strategy as a way to acomplish some health goals I’ve set.
I’m slightly amused that I did not ask her for these suggestions and yet she obviously felt completely comfortable in sharing them with me.
And I pay for this?
But I digress.
I told her that I was starving all the time hungry from mid-afternoon until bedtime, and she said this was happening because I ate a light lunch and was thus not being properly fueled to get through the afternoon.
I suddenly remembered why I’m paying her….she’s telling me to eat MORE. She’s my new best friend.
Lunch around here usually is pretty slim pickins since I don’t have a lot of leftovers (because the boys eat like horses), but I’ve been trying to eat a little more than the usual sandwich, chips and cookies salad that I usually have. Yesterday, I sauteed some shrimp and tossed it with some leftover grilled vegetables and stirred it into couscous.
While I was eating, Mr. CPQ stopped by the house for a little bit and I told him that my lunch was good, but my lips felt funny and that I thought I might be having an allergic reaction to the shrimp.
I would like to tell you, Dear Reader, that he expressed immediate concern over my possible anaphylactic shock, but I think we both know that didn’t happen.
Instead he asked, “Does this mean I can have the rest of your lunch?”
Have a nice day.
