I just want to elaborate on my food / timer idea.
I am a CONSTANT snacker. I think I am hungry, but for the most part I am BORED or Food just sounds good (because it IS good) but... I am NOT hungry.
So... Bring into play the TIMER.
The past few days, I have been planning my meals and this has worked for ME :) Just an idea:
Wake up 6:00-630 = Coffee
Run / Bike 7:00-8:00 = 8-16 oz. water
Breakfast 8:30 = Oatmeal / Banana / V-8
10:00-11:00 Pool to Relax and swim 2000-3000 Meters
12:30 - 1:00 Lunch = Turkey Sandwich or Smart Ones TV dinner / Green Beans / Apple or Yogurt
*** THIS IS WHERE I START USING THE TIMER***
I am NOT hungry after lunch, but I frequently start SNACKING So... I set the timer when needed to remind me I really don't NEED to eat until 3:00-3:30. If I want / need something I can Drink Water or a V-8. For me.... if I start eating "real" food, it's a recipe for binging or continuous snacking all afternoon.
So at 3:00-3:30 I eat a snack (small meal)... My husband made this delicious Salsa mix with corn, Pinto Beans, and Diced Tomatoes with green peppers. I eat this with carrots or a small salad with a little bit of Zesty Italian dressing. I also have a fruit like banana / apple / applesauce and a yogurt.
5:30 - 7:00 I've been going WALKING YAYAYAYYAY!!! It's been the perfect time. I drink about 8 oz water with possibly another V-8 about 5:00.
7:30 DINNER... Chicken Kabob with pineapple, green peppers, onions. Side of Brown Rice or a side salad. Fruit watermelon. Dessert = Rootbeer Popscicle :)
8:30-9:00 If I need a bedtime snack... Popcorn or Yogurt or Another Popsicle or 2 :)
Timer Recap = I MOSTLY just need the timer between 1:00-3:00 and 3:30-5:15 These are the hardest times for me. It has helped SOOOOOO much to get out and walk at about 5:30 and so fun to do it with a fun group of girls.

I went swimming this morning.... Happy, Happy, Happy. I've only been swimming 2 times in the last 5 months. It's summertime... I am ready to swim, swim, swim.
Today is also Day 2 WW. Eating Healthy and making it a lifestyle change. Healthy = Me.
I LOVE running. I ran the mile with my students.
We only have 2 more days of school and one of them is a 1/2 day. YAY!!! It's been a rough school year.
And...... I am home relaxing, hanging out with the kids, and checking my on my Spark Buddies.
Life is *GOOD*
