There is a difference between appetite and hunger.
For example, this morning, during circuit class, my stomach rumbled and growled. It felt empty. I was HUNGRY. Hunger is the physical desire to eat.
I ate some nuts and felt really satisfied. I stopped eating!
At lunch time I ate a nice Caesar Salad. Just a little one, with some Banana Bread for dessert and I felt really good. I wasn’t hungry or stuffed, I was nicely satisfied.
And then in walked Sandy’s Catering. The leftovers from today’s lunch showed up and they looked soooo very good!! And I said “No, I’m NOT eating anything, I’m NOT hungry” and then proceeded to scoff down two kebabs, a piece of chicken, four brownies (oh those brownies!!), two mini savoury muffins, a piece of quiche and three pieces of bread.
I wasn’t even hungry! I ate until I felt sick! I could NOT control my appetite! Appetite is the psychological desire to eat. And I had no control over it what-so-ever! Stupid thing is, it’s MY brain and I should be able to tell it when to stop. facking. eating. already!
Luckily I did teach Aqua Intense afterwards, but there’s no way it even came close to knocking off the amount of calories I consumed in those 20 minutes.
I don’t even know what else to say. I am just so frustrated and embarrassed!
Thoughts? Advice? Anyone? Bueller?
