Tired of eating
I can't believe I'm saying this, but I'm getting tired of figuring out how to eat enough. I know I need to eat well to fuel my workouts or my performance will suffer, but sometimes it's just such a chore. I'm starting to understand why people like Michael Phelps eat donuts and other crap every day. At least I'm not a guy who has to figure out how to eat 3000-4000 calorie a day!
It's not like everything I put in my mouth is high quality, either. I had frozen yogurt with toppings from those self-serve frozen yogurt places just yesterday and not all my toppings were healthy fresh fruit. Then I went to the Sports Basement party and I had some of the chocolate covered raisins and the M&Ms as well as a ginger snap cookie. But about 3/4 of the way through the cookie, I just got weary and sick of it. So I threw the rest away.
It doesn't help that lately I've just not been that hungry or that I still have a big resistance to cooking food for myself. If it's not ready-made, I tend to pass it up. Thank goodness for leftovers that I just have to heat up in the microwave!
I think I will force myself to make myself some scrambled eggs for lunch and see if I can break this cycle of food boredom and weariness.
