I suffer from low blood sugar crankiness. I mean I actual suffer from crankiness but sometimes it’s really because of my low blood sugar. Usually I bottom out around 3:00 in the afternoon. Unfortunately for Nicholas that is just about homework time too.
I don’t want to take out my low blood sugar crankiness on my 7 year old and his second grade homework. Seriously though, shouldn’t he be able to come up with ways to recycle around the house on his own?
Every since I’ve starting upping my mileage for marathon training, my afternoon irritability seems to be worse than ever.
I like to think I’m a pretty good intuitive eater. Meaning I eat when I’m hungry and I don’t generally eat out of emotion or boredom (usually). Now over eating and healthy food choices are an entirely different story.
So yes I’m trying to fuel my body properly in order to compensate for so many calories burned during my long runs. It just feels like I need to eat as much as a sumo wrestler just to keep myself satisfied.
So what’s this all about? Well, sometimes you just NEED cupcakes!
Excuse me while I go eat one
hundred, you know to avoid being grouchy!
Some iced by Ella some by myself. Can you tell any difference?
5 miles tomorrow. I hope my feet hold up. I got new shoes!
