I'm not complaining. I love to eat. But I think well over 24 hours since the race, it's just about time to draw a line. I must be calorically replenished by now, right? I "only" burned 2400 calories during my race and here's what I've eaten since:
Jimmy John's tuna sandwich w/ a side of apple pie and LOTS of whipped cream:
Starbuck's coconut mocha frappuccino:
Red Curry w/ tofu from Butterfly w/ a side of crab rangoon:
When I went to bed last night I was still a bit hungry but was WAY too tired to procure dessert, so I went to bed. Woke up at 5 am STARVING so had to get up to eat peanut butter on toast w/ a side of soy milk. Next up, Starbuck's Doubleshot energy drink. Did you know these have 12g of protein? They are practically healthy!
Brunch at 10 am at 11 City Diner w/ a couple friends. I thought this would be the meal where I finally got full. I ate 3 eggs, 2 large sausage links, plus hash browns, toast and a caloric drink called an Egg Creme.
But by 2:30 (post nap) I ate the rest of my red curry. Hmmm. Should have had the Challah French Toast at brunch as well.
Good thing I have leftover pasta for dinner or I might eat a hole through the wall....
Does this happen to anyone else post-race, or should I consider the possibility of a tapeworm? :)
And can I tell my body to just eat the extra calories conveniently located on my thighs instead of making me feel hungry? :)
