Postpartum Weight Loss- Using Food To Stay Awake?

Posted May 13 2009 10:01pm

Yesterday FOX 5 News came to my studio at 5 a.m. which meant I woke up at 4 to get ready.  They stayed until 8:30 a.m..  I was so tired and hungry!  During the segment I had orange juice and a bagel w/ light cream cheese, and fruit.  Normally I have Kashi Go Lean Crunch and Kashi Autumn Wheat w/ lowfat milk.  Both cereals are high in protein and fiber and keep me satisfied for several hours, but w/ the bagel I wasn’t satisfied.  After the segments were over I ate some protien (chicken breast and veggies) and still didn’t feel satisfied.  Finally I realized that I was so tired that my body was wanting some form of energy to stay awake and I was chosing food.  Once I had the realization I chose to take a nap!  Afterwards I felt so much better and my body was back on track.

Check out one of the clips from FOX 5 (fitness programs helping moms get fit pregnant and beyond).  This one even has my two boys!
