I am on spring break and I feel like it came just in time. I had my last day of work for the week. When I came home, I went to spin class. Then by the time I was cooking dinner, I was extremely hungry. I ended up making poor food choices by picking on whatever was convenient or were things I have not eaten in a while. Yes, I’m looking at you peanut butter. I was just so hungry while I was waiting for dinner to finish cooking. I did that (on a much lesser scale) last night too. This is worrisome to me because I know old habits never really die they just go dormant until something kicks them into gear again.
I see the beginning of a pattern. That time from 5:30 pm – 7:00 pm is a very hungry time for me. This makes sense, because that is dinnertime for most people. It seems no matter how hard I try (more often than not) dinner doesn’t get to the table until 7:30 or even 8:30 at night. That’s just too late. I’m going to have to give this situation some time and attention because I’ve worked so hard to build healthy habits and I don’t want to sabotage myself by eating too many SmartPoints because I’m legitimately hungry.
