One major “side effect” I noticed from the half marathon was how HUNGRY I’ve been all the time! And trust me, this is not at all a complaint–I love it! Looking back at Monday though I really didn’t eat too much more than normal, but I was definitely hungry faster than usual. I’ll take an excuse to eat more any day though :)

the following is my food journal from Monday, October 22nd
a big bowl of pumpkin oats topped with raisins, almond butter, and these freeze-dried strawberries I recently bought from Swanson Vitamins (they’re super good)
leftover soup with 12-grain crackers, broccoli and carrots with hummus, and some dark chocolate covered espresso beans (I’m trying really hard to like coffee and I thought this might be helpful…?)
sea salt and black pepper pistachios and a fuji apple, plus a slice of multigrain bread
vegetarian mexi-bowls for dinner (brown rice, corn, black beans, onion, fresh salsa, guacamole) with blue corn tortilla chips for scooping some of it up
applesauce + PB2 + cinnamon
**delicious combo–try it if you haven’t already!
Do you notice major differences in your appetite based on what kinds of workouts you do?
Unless it’s a long run (like Sunday’s), I typically don’t notice it from running. I do, however, notice a difference/increase in my appetite every day that I weight train! Like this morning–You should’ve seen the size of my cereal bowl :)
