When the hunger hits….I go downhill.
This morning I had some Greek yogurt with chocolate protein powder, and a little almond butter, before heading out to play squash with Nabilla and Kelsey at 9:45 am. (I guess my late night snack of cashew butter and crackers didn’t transfer into “breakfast energy” for this morning 🙁 )
I was cautious of eating too much because I didn’t want to be a huge lump on court, (see here for what I like to eat before morning workouts!), which was a good decision, however I made the mistake of not bringing a snack. About an hour into playing, I started to get a little hungry, and as we approached the two-hour mark, hunger was at the forefront of my mind.
Needless to say, when I got home, the kitchen was my very first stop. (I still need to shower actually- yuck!).
Aa I consumed a cashew oat protein ball, chicken breast, and lots of water, I prepared the main portion of my lunch. I had originally planned to make plain scrambled eggs, but knew I needed to use up some of the veggies in my fridge.
Enter, veggie-egg scramble!
I’ve also since managed to finish off the Greek yogurt container. Looks like today is an endless hunger kind of day!
Time to go work for a little bit, until I meet up with Kat to hang out for a bit, and then Unite Fitness at 4:30! It’s gorgeous out, so I’m hoping Kat and I can chill by the pool at her apartment and soak up some sun. Oh… and I have to do that ice bucket challenge…
Do you notice your athletic performance start to dwindle when you get hungry?
Do you bring snacks with you when you work out?
