When I first wake up I am not hungry. Actually that is one of the few times that food is not on my brain. I usually get hungry around 9:30am - 10am and of course I'm at work. Granted we have a full kitchen but it is not feasible to stop work and go in there and make breakfast for myself. I'm a Leasing Agent for an apt complex and I'm sure the prospects would love to come in to the sweet smell of sausage and eggs
but that ain't gonna happen. So I usually eat a snack that is either crackers, chips, cookies something, anything that is not a healthy choice.
I am striving for healthy choices but I am in such a morning routine that I don't know how to break my bad habit. I get up - without an alarm mind you - 7 days a week by 6:30am. Ok forget this my morning schedule is as follows:
6:15am Take the dogs for a walk
7:00am Back home and give the dogs fresh water and food
7:10am Sit down and catch up on local news and/or email
7:30am Take a shower
7:50am Get dressed, hair, makeup and such
8:15am Take the doggies out for one last "p-mail" before work
8:25am Walk to the office
I know that habits are broken by replacing positive ones. But where would I add MY breakfast and what to make?? I started thinking and one thing could that I have a tenancy of binging at night and therefore not hungry first thing in the morning. Ok stop all the binging - I can work on that. I am learning a lot about myself as I write it all out. So bear with me. I really don't want to get up early because I do not feel comfortable walking the dogs in the dark by myself. I do wait for the sun to come up.
Is there anything that I can prepare the night before maybe and heat up for breakfast? I know that breakfast does not have to consistute said breakfast food so that could be one way for me to think outside of the box but I am very open to suggestions. Did or does anyone else have an issue with this? And if so how did you improve?
