Over the course of the last week, I’ve been ravenously hungry regardless of how much I eat (and was eating more fat than usual), and constantly craving cinnamon rolls but then never actually wanting to go get them. But this morning I woke up and the feeling was gone! It feels like storm clouds clearing. Thank goodness for carbs.
I also experimented with a new recipe (what else is new?), and made my own version of Veganosity’s pulled carrot burgers with spicy barbecue sauce, on a whole wheat bun. They were so flavorful I could hardly believe it! Not to mention, they’re a great snack option for when I’m in a rush–I’ve got leftover filling in the fridge, so I’ll just toast a frozen bun and scoop it on whenever I want one.
Exercise-wise, I had a fantastic hour-long lifting session that was mostly back and arms-focused. Oddly enough I still found myself seriously craving a run afterwards, but couldn’t because a) my muscles were very tired out and b) I pulled my hamstring a bit from reintroducing romanian deadlifts. (Curse my genetically weak ligaments/tendons)
