I tend to work long hours and am up burning the midnight oil long after everyone in my house have gone off to bed. Snacking, was a way to stay up and keep working when the body says, “Just go to sleep.” living in my head and ignoring my body and that’s just not conducive to healthy living and self-awareness.
It weird that having a good work ethic, a strength that has enabled me to accomplish so much in my life, can also present a problem, weight gain. I’m happy to say, I have not snacked to stay awake in a long time. Tonight at dinner, I stopped eating when my body told my brain I’m done! Big stuff. These are things I’m thinking about.
