I have so many things to do by Tuesday. SO MANY THINGS. I won’t bore you with the details, but I had a plan to get most of them done today and then I fell asleep for three and a half hours and now THAT’S out. :/ Oh well. Now I’m taking a break halfway through my Japanese extra credit homework. I would choose the optional thing to do first. I really want the points though, ‘kay?
My stomach is feeling very unsettled right now. I don’t know if it’s the stress of the end of term, what I had for dinner, or what, but it’s sooo uncomfortable. I’m toasting up a slice of bread to eat in an effort to settle it.
It occurs to me that this post won’t even really be relevant a half hour from now, as there are so many “right now” references already. Snapshot in time? Maybe. My toast is done.
I took a bite. It’s yummy.
Is this whole play-by-play thing okay with you?
I think part of the reason my stomach doesn’t feel right is that I tend to have a hard time knowing when I have eaten enough. I’m usually worried about eating too much, so I think I tend to stray on the not enough side. Early this afternoon, Jan and I went out to Buffalo Wild Wings for lunch. I ordered a six-piece of traditional wings (with sweet barbecue sauce, very yummy) and had carrot sticks with ranch on the side. I felt satisfied when we left, but then we walked to the other side of downtown to visit a museum and walked another mile home, so I was quite hungry by the time I got home and had a second lunch of cereal, a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, and a granola bar. I felt good after that, but it seemed like a lot of food to me, so I decided to have a small dinner. For dinner I had a slice of pizza, a small salad, and a peanut butter cookie. Maybe that was actually too little. I really couldn’t tell you.
I’m having another slice of toast, this one with peanut butter. I think it was too little.
How do you know when you’ve eaten enough? It seems like people always say to eat until you’re not hungry anymore, but that never works for me because I obviously feel less hungry after every bite I eat, and even if I’m hungry for a whole meal, I won’t feel hungry anymore after something like a granola bar. I didn’t even feel hungry for dinner today, but it was getting late and I knew I had to eat. Hungry for me means stomach growling. I honestly can’t identify any other hunger symptoms. Hunger symptoms? Eh.
Every time I write the word “symptoms”, I remember how that’s the word that knocked me out of the school-wide spelling bee finals in fifth grade because I spelled it too quickly and left out the P. Just a note.
