When I travel, my hunger signals seem to go away. I'm sitting at the airport, on the plane, in the car. Even though I exercised in the hotel gym this morning and ate an appropriate breakfast, as soon as I started that travel routine, I felt like I wanted to eat stuff. And I didn't feel hungry. I did take cheese, crackers and apple slices, so that was at least in my control versus restaurant fare. I carried lots of water with me and drank that too. We had a late lunch when we reached our destination airport and even though I didn't feel hungry, I really wanted to eat hot food and a whole meal. I settled on won ton soup and enjoyed it. I left some.
Upon arriving at home, I had hot tea with milk. I'm trying to hold off from eating anything else tonight so that I can enjoy the feeling of being really hungry tomorrow. The meaning For me of this Travel lesson is: Food as Comfort or where's my 'binky'.
