Work Out = Pig Out?

18 Apr

Since we moved I have been really good about not eating as much fast food.  When I was working at the station I ate it every day  – Popeye’s Spicy Chicken Strips with the buttery, yummy biscuit/Whoppers with french fries and zesty onion dipping sauce (curse you Ginger!)/10 piece Chicken McNuggets with hot mustard sauce/Arby’s roast beef sandwich and curly fries with horsey sauce to drown every ounce of my food.  Want to barf yet? I sure do…

It’s probably because I just got finished devouring my second fast food meal this week. (I did go for the grilled chicken though so that’s better right?)  It seems now that I’ve been hitting the Y and really working it (I took 3 aerobics classes today!) I feel the need to stuff my stomach with the worst possible crap.  It’s not just fast food either – last week I made pork-n-beans and put it on hot dog buns!  What the heck is that?  I don’t even remember the last time I ate pork-n-beans and I was all like “yum – I think I’ll make these even worse for me by slapping them on 3 buns!”

I’m totally zeroing out any calorie burning I did do at the gym and it’s driving me crazy!  I know I’m the one who controls the food I put in my mouth – I just need to get a better handle on eating right so I can actually loose some of these post baby pounds.  I’m hoping this post will purge me of my desire to take another trip to the drive-thru. Or at least help me to order a salad!

    I'm a sucker for that zesty onion ring sauce. On fries. On chicken fingers. On toast. Popsicles. Anything.

    This from Wikipedia: The best-selling brand of canned pork and beans – Van Camp's – has 220 calories per cup (240 ml). It is quite low in fat – 2g of fat and only 1g saturated fat – and it has no significant quantity of cholesterol. However, it is very high in salt. At 1g of sodium per cup, a single serving has 42% of the US Recommended Dietary Allowance of sodium. Roughly three-quarters of the calories in a serving of Van Camp's pork and beans come from carbohydrates, with the bulk of the remainder coming from protein. Other than the salt and sugar, not so bad.It sounds like your body is craving protein. You know, I didn't really start losing weight until I started eating more. Try eating a small portion of something you really like every couple of hours between meals. If you don't eat, your body thinks you are starving and starts storing everything it takes in. If you eat enough to make it think food is everywhere, it will let you burn fat. It's midnight and I'm lecturing about weight loss. This is why I hate BLOGS.
