what habit do i want to change and a plan to change it

Saturday, March 02, 2013

this week challenge is blogging.

what new habit do i want to develop?

i really would like to get into a habit of just having 1 or 2 small snacks after work. i usually go crazy and consume about 400 calories after work. this is really sabatoging my effort at losing weight.

most of the time, my calories are ok but i dont want to consume that much before bed. even if you consume 400 calories of healthy food ( which i do plenty of times) , it is still calories

how will i go about this?

i will have to do a lot of pre planning. i have to keep peanut butter out of my sight. this is a big weakness, but my husband insisits we have to have some in the house.
i must think about what i want to eat before i eat. it has to be some kind of comfort food llike a granola bar or pudding.

maybe i could try blogging or doing crosswood puzzles or reading.

this will require a lot of effort but i can do it.

    Fruit is my snack of choice most of the time. But I also like mixed nuts, cheese, and I always keep boiled eggs in the frig.
One of my secrets - sugar free popsicles are the best - they curb sweet cravings!

    You will figure something out. Try something high protein and/or high fiber. You'll be good.

    I am bad to snack in the evenings when I get home from work, especially peanut butter or other nut butters. It has gotten worse lately and I have got to get a handle on it to get this weight back off!

Your alternatives sound like great ideas. Walking also helps me deter that feeling that I need to snack!

    I love peanut butter! I have become very careful about measuring it, because it's so high in calories for such a small, delicious amount!

    Snacking can be a bugger. I think that you are on the right track with pre-planning and also finding activities to keep yourself busy.

Good luck with the challenge! I look forward to the week of blogs for this challenge.
