Hangry

Hangry. I love this world. Hungry + Angry = Exactly how I feel.

After our lovely all-inclusive vacation, not to mention weeks of post-engagement celebratory snacks of buffalo chicken dip and brownies,  Carolina Man and I were ready to get our eating and exercise back on track. Since moving to NC, I'd put on a little bit of love chub, and I'm ready for it to come off.

And that means carrot sticks. And chicken breasts with salt and pepper. And 6 am ass-kicking workouts. And Jillian Michaels. It's a recipe for crankiness. Throw a little wedding planning on top of it, and you've got a serious crankypants in the house.

On the plus side, I've lost four pounds. On the negative side, I am dreaming about french fries and ice cream sundaes. Isn't it incredibly unfair how easy it is to put on a weight but seriously difficult to take it off? It sucks to log every little thing you eat, and use food scales to measure every thing you put on your plate. Part of it is that I haven't settled into a routine and plan that works best for me.

And that means I'm hangry. What about you? Got hanger?

  1. I'm with you. I'm meeting my mom in a few for a little shopping...and she wants to go eat. But I'm counting and weighing and measuring...and I have a planned dinner for tonight. I don't want to deviate from the plan...but I'm starving. I hate dieting.

    1. Yeah, it totally sucks. I just try to have a meal once a week when I splurge a bit. It helps me not feel so deprived. But going out to eat is difficult. Good luck to you!

  2. Just be happy you don't work in a restaurant. It's freaking horrible. Boyfriend and I have already decided that once he's out here we're going to influence each other to eat better. Here's hoping!

    1. Oh, I would die. I'd eat fries constantly, I'm sure! I hope you can encourage one another. It's one thing I'm so glad CM and I share a commitment to good health; it's something I haven't had in a relationship before.
