Ok, so now a little story about me. As you know (or if you are new you don't know) I have been doing the couch to 5K program. I was very skeptical about running but for health reasons, I decided it was something I really needed to do for myself. I had heard couch to 5K was the best way to ease yourself into a running program and it really is! I just completed week 5 of the program-I'm nearly there! I am so proud of my progress--I went from running for 60 seconds at a time to running a solid 20 minutes (this week) in just 5 weeks. I also enjoy being able to run with Forrest and my friend Kelly and it is a great way to get outside and enjoy the sun! However, I have to admit that running makes me SO hungry! After a run I'm really tired and thirsty and don't feel like eating, but give me an hour and I am famished! Does this happen to anyone else? I know I'm trying to replenish my calories (I clearly miss the ones I burn) but seriously, I think take in more calories after a run than I burned. After the 20 minute victory I didn't even scoff at Forrest's suggestion that we try the new Doritos Locos Tacos (Cool Ranch flavor!) and I am not really a fast food kind of girl. Then I insisted we stop to buy crescent rolls so we could stuff them with meat and cheese left over from my antipasto kabobs from Friday night. Heaven I tell you, pure heaven. I could have eaten all 12 of those crescent rolls and I was STILL hungry when I went to bed and was hungry all day today. I am hoping all of this hunger means that my hard work is paying off and my running is doing my body good, Now I can stick to my Mediterranean diet plan (clearly I was OFF it this week) and hopefully my heart will be in good shape!
Ok, so hopefully I am not the only one running and then ruining it by binge eating and hour later. Right? Right?

    1. Keep checking back! There are more giveaways in the works!

  2. i'm definitely no runner, but i do usually feel really hungry awhile after a workout. maybe try to eat something with protein right after your run to replenish the calories you've burned and then maybe you won't be famished later. keep up the good work!


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment! I read each and every one of them and they always make me smile!
