Waffle Wednesdays anyone? Me me me! Waffles are the new pancakes, and this was a well deserved post workout treat meal.
I’m still in the strength phase of my workout, which requires heavy lifting to build my strength. But lately i’ve been dealing with intense hunger with causes slight nausea and can only be resolved when I eat, even though I may have eaten an hour before.
Although I do struggle with low iron, I have built quite a decent amount of lean muscle mass, which may have speed up my metabolism, so I have to eat more frequently even though I eat six small meals a day. Oh well, who knows? I will go to my doctor to double check my iron and sugar levels, but in the mean time, eating seems to do the trick 🙂
