Isn’t this backwards…?

I guess my body (yes… another body report… sorry) has finally hit a bit of stasis because it has begun protesting violently when it feels it doesn’t have enough nourishment.  I get nasty headaches and stomach cramps when I don’t eat enough, but then I get other “problems” if I eat too much.  I am eating 5 meals per day.  Two small snacks (morning and afternoon) a good breakfast and dinner with lunch being my biggest meal.  I have been getting cravings and hungry headaches at about 8:30 at night as well.

I guess I have just never been this “tuned in” to my body.  Maybe I’m paying too much attention (read: obsessing) to it… I dunno…  But just like I am trying to stick to a program for running, I am also trying to stick to a program for eating.  I’m not sure which one is harder…  no…  I take that back…  it’s definitely the eating… *sigh*

It seems I can run an extra mile, or not.  Run fast, or slow.  Skip a day, or run an off day.  It doesn’t matter much.  I still slowly progress.  But if I add an extra calorie, even occasionally, or skip a meal, or eat an extra snack, I either feel horrible, will attack (and eat raw) anything that gets in my way, or those nasty pounds jump back on and I blow WEEKS worth of progress.

I’m not really “frustrated” as such because I know that if I stick to my plan this will work.  I just don’t understand it all and find the whole process a bit backwards and odd.  I guess I was just expecting a bit more linear results.

…eh…  oh well…
