Today's motivation Challenge is to work out exactly when I'm going to eat and set the clock to I don't go longer that 3-4 hours max without eating something.
This is a really tricky one for me because my days are all different and geared round teaching, meetings and chauffeuring my daughter around. I'm often out from 6-9.30 at night, later when we have matches, and I tend to eat when I get home because 6 is just too early for me, and my partner and daughter don't get home till I do. If I'm not working and they are home, we eat at a more reasonable time.
I do eat breakfast within half an hour of getting up, which varies between 7 and 9 depending on how late I worked the night before and whether or not my daughter is at school or on a break. I eat lunch between 1 and 3- again depending on how my day is going.
If I have to eat between meals because the intervals are just too long, I tend to take a banana or a low fat muesli bar with me and eat it en route.
I do actually enjoy the variety in my routine. I don't like each day being the same, and I do enjoy having free time in the day to breathe in the fresh air and daylight.
So, I eat as regularly as I can, given the restraints I face, but I'm never going to be able to eat at the same time every day because my life isn't like that.
