I didn’t sleep well at all last night. Just a lot on my mind, really.
However, I have had a great morning so far. I woke early and got ready for my spin class, knowing I had a 7a appointment with Lonnie from Full Plate Living. He spoke very kind, encouraging thoughts and listened to my problem. My dilemma is I am a big snacker. I get tired of carrots, celery and apples, so I reach for potato or corn chips. I ought to be reaching for something healthier, or maybe I just don’t need to eat! I’m a receptionist so I sit near a candy dish too! I used to be able to say no to candy and sweets. Ever since I was a teen, I got into this 3-5p snack time habit. I don’t understand it!
But Lonnie from this blog site really helped me. He gave me some new, tangible tips, hints, tricks, and goals. He asked me how adventurous I am, and we discussed possibly eating a bigger breakfast(I’m always hungry after the gym and try to eat a yogurt or a smoothie, but not a big breakfast, and then a medium lunch, and then a small, light supper. Genius idea! Brilliant! Now if I could get my husband on board…!:-)
Anyways, Lonnie was gracious in explaining habit forming things, and told me that sometimes it’s hard to differentiate between cravings and actual hunger. He said it sounds like I’m doing a good job, I just need to get creative with my strategies and goals! Which, I CAN DO!:)
