Food Schedule...

Tuesday, March 12, 2013

I want so badly to get a better relationship with food but since I overeat when I am stressed or even when I am bored and under eat during regular times, I don't have the slightest clue when I am actually hungry. Odd I know. But there it is. So after lots of careful thought I put myself on a food schedule during the week. It of course makes me giggle to say it, I kind of feel like an animal or baby but I feel it will benefit me in more than one way.

So here it is...

8-9 am: Green smoothie and caffeine of some sort;
10 am: Mid morning snack of string cheese and sunflower seeds (it might change per what I want that week);
12 pm: Lunch. Today it is a pita pocket, black olives and another string cheese;
3 pm: Mid afternoon snack. Today it is an apple and strawberries.
6-7 pm: Dinner.

I am also allowed some yogurt with fruit in the evenings if I get snackish or cravings for something sweet. I am also drinking plenty of water in between and I chew on gum if I get the urge to snack in between snacks.

So far it is working out really well. I feel better, I am not starving or too full and I don't feel deprived which is resulting in less slip ups. Now I am working on mapping out a route to bike to work a few times a week, I am re-starting on week 1 of couch to 5k and I am enjoying strolls around the blocks with the dogs after work. I am really ready for some positive changes!

    I try to stick to a good eating schedule, and mostly i do for meals, but I would do better if I added snacks. But I have a pretty busy job where I don't usually have the time to do fit in breaks to eat snacks. The problem with not snacking is you get too hungry. I think it's better to eat more often them to have bigger portions. Still a goal for me, though.

    I get up at different times and maybe this will help me. Of course it will change everyday but as long as I do first thing should be ok. Thanks for the tip.

    sounds good! I'm starting to feel a little deprived with mine during the day so will probably have to change it! emoticon
