Munchin' at the Movies
Thursday, January 22, 2009
I've come to the realization that when I'm watching a movie, about 1/2 hour into it, I get a snack attack. My husband always breaks out the ice cream or popcorn. Since he's truck driving now and only home a few days a month, I'm trying to train myself to NOT snack during a flick. I go for water instead. And if that doesn't cut it, I go for some herbal tea. If I'm still feeling like I want a munchie, I try to do something low-cal and/or healthy. 2 cups of air-popped popcorn with a dash or two of Kernal Season's Popcorn Seasoning; grapes; tortilla chips and salsa. I've also been monitoring my portion sizes a lot more lately. I've even measure cereal, beverages, and such using measuring cups. And I count the crackers or chips. It works.
So here's to not snacking during the movies unless I'm truly hungry and then I consciously make healthy choices.
