Food, glorious food........

So, after not getting up yesterday I spent the whole day hungry. I ate my normal food, but was still hungry all day. What the heck is going on?? I ended up stopping on the way home for an iced coffee and some donuts. Yes, I know, donuts!!! But I was starving. And I still ate dinner. Hello!! Do I have a hollow leg or something?? Weird. I have been strength training now for 6 weeks consistently. I'm wondering if I'm starting to build some muscle and it's taking more food to fuel me. Maybe??? All I know is I'm freaking hungry.

This morning when the alarm went off I bounded out of bed like my butt was on fire. Could that be due to the extra calories I ate yesterday?? My strength training was mediocre this morning though. I thought I was putting out a good effort, but according to my HRM I was slacking. Hmm... What is going on???

There's not much to do at work today. Guess I'll get some reading done for school.
