Agreed with the poster above.
Geez, I'm just a sedentary childless woman, I spend most of my day at the computer or doing light house chores, and I STILL eat 3 eggs for breakfast, and more often than not, I have a ton of beef or chicken with those eggs. And I'm still losing a ton of body fat!
I usually eat around 7 or 7:30. That usually leaves me full until 2-3 PM, where I'll eat another big meal. That usually leaves me full until the next day, though I might have a small salad around 6 if I get hungry.
Now, you have 3 kids to take care of, and you are breastfeeding, even if it's just a little. You NEED to take care of yourself! You don't want to sacrifice yourself to your children and ruin your health. Eat. Eat well. But eat real food, not cake or rabbit food (lettuce salads).
If I had so much almond flour bread like you did, I'd also end up very hungry and tired. The more carbs I eat, the more I want. It never ends unless I cut it cold.
Bread is cake, cake is bread, it's all the same. Would you eat cake for breakfast?
Good luck. I know you can do it :-) Just need a push in the right direction!
Edit: don't force yourself to work out if you are tired. You'll make your health worse. You seem really stressed, so just use that time to sleep or relax!

You are right. The food I ate yesterday was crap, but like I said. Not the usual. This is my tired me. Not the energetic, well rested, productive, happy me. I know in a better state I would not eat those foods. Why do I have them because I'm slowly "Primalizing" my kids. Thanks for the ideas. You also maybe right that I need a heartier breakfast. Gonna experiment with that. Just not sure because I usually work out a few hours after breakfast and don't like a really full belly when I workout. Thanks again.
