Pre-workout meal: none – fasted workout
Mood: tired from last-night’s workout – it was a killer one, if I may say so. My legs ached as I tried to teach the same class at 5 am. I eliminated my post-Spinning run, in an attempt to save my energy for my double-workout day tomorrow (Norcal in the am; Spinning in the pm). I was hungrier than Monday, being reading for breakfast as soon as I returned from teaching class. I am glad I took a mid-morning snack; I needed it. I felt as if I were counting down to lunch time. In the afternoon I did not feel hungry until 2:30 pm, when I would have loved a nice apple to help me make it to dinner. Instead, I walked to Chico Natural and got myself a big bag of raw almonds to keep at my desk. I was ravenous by dinner time. After the salad and the apple, I was still hungry one hour later, so I had to chow down again. I felt like I “failed” a bit by not toughing out my hunger, but I was seriously starving.
Sleep: ok as usual. Woke up from Jack’s midnight vocalizations, but returned to sleep quickly. 8 hours.
OVERALL: while day 1 was marked by a lack of appetite (most likely due to the after-shock of the food poisoning incident), day 2 was marked by hunger, which is my status quo. I noticed that I did not get tired in the afternoon like I usually do (around 2/3pm).
