after work

Thursday, September 05, 2013

I've noticed that I have a pattern. Typically when I'm at work I am good because I only have limited choices, so I can't deviate from that. However, when I get home it's a whole different story. I don't really keep junk food on hand, but I am remarkably resourceful when it comes to whipping up some unhealthy concoction from whatever I do have in the house. Basically if I have flour, sugar, butter, eggs, and milk it turns into something I shouldn't eat and then of course, I eat it. I need to somehow break myself of this habit.

    Haha I am the exact same way! I literally only bring a yogurt and a fiber bar to work and then I won't eat that much because I don't have anything to eat. Then I get home and it all goes out the window... emoticon

    Ugh, I am in the same boat. Have you tried having a snack planned and ready to go right when you get home?
    I like BETHIEMAE75's suggesting to just have dinner when you get home. I've been having a meal (ok, sometimes it's a meal's worth of snacks emoticon ) when I get home and then a snack afterward instead of other other way around.
    Also, keep yourself occupied! Exercise immediately when you get home or have a little to-do list of house chores. I know once I get in lazy or snacky mode, it's hard to get back out.

    I am currently suffering form this problem too! I am trying to have a small snack about an hour before leaving work...that seems to help a bit. AND having my menu planned out so I can get home and start dinner immediately! One other thing I just read an article on lots of slow cooker meals to try! Good luck to you.

    It can be tough to behave once home. I find keeping my hands busy with different crafts helps keep me from doing things like that.

    Good luck and keep pushing
