    i feel you; i could not get enough food today either…and my hunger is falling over from my long run on saturday…really?

    enjoy your relaxing night!

    For some reason, I’m the exact opposite. i ran a half today and I could not be more apathetic towards food, but days I run 6-7 miles I’m ravenous. I hope it all evens out in the long run.
    I’m usually a food snob when it comes to eating out, but I have nothing bad to say about the brown rice sushi at my whole foods. i don’t know how or why but it is better than most restaurants I’ve had

    Long runs have a tendency to unleash my inner hunger monster the next day on a crazy level. I feel like I can’t be satisfied. I’ve heard tons of runners make this same comment. No worries. You’re normal!

    Yum lots of yummy pumpkin! Its one of the things I actually do like about fall……

    Long runs definitely make me hungry, its usually later that day and not so much the day after…… usually. πŸ˜‰

    Publix sushi is SO amazing!!! I discovered that this summer–the avocado veggie summer rolls are out of this world!

    i sometimes feel the opposite. yesterday after my half marathon i was starving, and today my hunger just wasnt there. but then other times its reversed! i hate when that happens

    Funny, I find when I change my ‘usual’ weekday breakfast I become so much more hungry earlier too. I love eating good pancakes and ft, but I try to save them for the weekend because I know that my oats and ceral will NEVER let me down during a long work morning.

    THe Pumpkin Falafles look awesome! πŸ™‚

    If you are hungry eat more food woman! Your body obviously is craving it. If I didn’t eat every couple hours I would probably double over from hunger.

    I totally hear you on the hunger thing!!! I find that it’s hard to keep my energy levels stable after long runs because sometimes I have trouble telling whether I’m actually hungry until I’m STARVING. I’ve never been one to keep a food journal or count calories or anything, but at a glance it looks like your meals today were all pretty light. Maybe adding in some additional fats or really dense carbs on days after long runs would help to balance out your hunger a little! On a side note, no matter how many pancakes or waffles I eat in the morning, I am always super hungry really shortly afterwards!! Hope that tomorrow is more “satisfying”!

    I was like that yesterday after my run. I could not get enough food.

    Your body was obviously topping up on its stored fat supply today. You probably depleted quite a bit yesterday.

    That always happens to me- I am NEVER hungry the day of my long run, but I always make up for it the next day. I find that healthy fats usually quench the hunger (or maybe I just take any excuse to eat peanut butter haha)

    Good to know you fueled your body with yummy foods after your long run.

    Woohoo I’m glad they came out well!!! Totally trying that next time I make them. Clearly you can never have enough pumpkin πŸ˜‰ You should try the yogurt sauce next time – SO good!!!

    Oh and I’m the same way – the day of a long run, I am so not hungry, but the next day… watch out!!!

    Nighty night! πŸ™‚

    The same things always happens to me too! It’s as if my hunger disappears on hard workout days, then kicks into overdrive the following day (or on rest days). I just go with it, I’m sure my body needs the recovery fuel… or… something πŸ˜›

    I agree that Publix makes good sushi. Although, I tried their seaweed salad once and it was disgusting.

    I have days where I can’t seem to get enough food, too…funny!! It’s so odd… And I want to try that pumpkin ice cream but I don’t think my grocery store carries it 😐

    I am the same way the day after a long run too!

    I find those days balance out — one day, absolutely ravenous, the next day, I just want light foods. It all works out in the end. πŸ™‚

    dinner looks great!! i am glad you listened to your body and gave it the fuel it needs to replenish your body from yesterdays run!

    omg, i totally understand the ravenous hunger days. i was in the elevator with a co-worker last week and i remarked about how hungry it was (it was about 11:30am). she said “oh yeah, i skipped breakfast, i’m hungry too”….meanwhile by that point i had already eaten a hearty 600 + calorie breakfast plus snack and i felt ready to gnaw my arm off. haha. i think i would pass out if i skipped breakfast. it’s definitely the running!

    I am often really hungry after a hard workout, but I find that my hunger cues are more easily recognized. I’m not eating because I think I need food, I’m eating because I am hungry and need fuel!

    I think you may have combined my two favorite foods with pumpkin + falafel!! yum!

    I wish I had an excuse for my being hungry all day, but I didn’t even do any cardio! I’m glad you kept fueling yourself all day.

    I looove sushi. πŸ™‚ And that falafel sounds interesting. I haven’t eaten falafel in so long, ugh.

    I am totally making those falafel…and SOOON! I’ve been having a massive craving lately!!

    Not sure if I can recall if there is brown rice sushi (don’t think so), but Fuji sushi on Lee Road in Winter Park was always pretty good to me.

    I wish that I could mention brown rice sushi here without all of my co-workers looking at me like I have 4 heads. Brown rice = love. They seem to disagree!

    I have days like that too, but my ‘non-stop hunger’ days are ALWAYS two days after the run, which I find a little weird. Oh well, I loveeeeee to snack so I don’t mind! πŸ™‚ Your cookies look yummy!!

  34. Simone @ P:T

    That sounds like me this morning. It is only 8:35am and I have already been eating non-stop cuz i woke up famished this morning and just can’t seem to stop the hunger pangs. Oh well, just another excuse to eat I guess ;)…i feel like it’s guna be a light diner kind of day since after all this “day” eating I imagine i will finally be full, and perhaps overly full, later on.

    Poor you for being so hungry! I hate that too, so annoying – plus you end up going through so much food in the house, it’s expensive! The sushi looks awesome πŸ™‚

    There is a grammatical thing that I just need to share with you. The word “ate” is a past tense word so using it in the present tense isn’t correct. For example: “Dinner was finished by 6:30 and dessert was ate not too long after that.” The sentence should go as follows: Dinner was finished by 6:30 and dessert was eaten not too long after that. I saw this mistake twice in this post and I’ve noticed it in the past so I thougt I’d say somethng. I know this seems rude and I promise I’m not trying to be, just trying to help. On a happy note I love reading your blog. πŸ™‚

    Hi There,
    I love your blog,it is so real. I have one suggestion, since I am a ‘mom’ I do that!.

    Eat more FAT: Coconut Oil, Avocados, Macadamia nuts, Olives, Cold Pressed Olive Oil, Wild fish, Barleans 3-6-9…
    These will feed your cells and NOT make you fat, only your cells.

    I am a nutritionist at heart, so have loved to see the results healthy foods give others.

    My son is living proof you need to eat well and fats too.

    Living well,
