I help DH in his dental office. We take lunch from 1 to 2 PM and eat breakfast at about 6:30 in the morning. Many days my standard morning oatmeal and peanut butter breakfast holds me. Some times when I am smart I take fruit or another snack with me. Sometimes I break down and make a packet of oatmeal.
At 1 I ran for my PT session (rehab on a knee). They had me do extra time on the cardio machine. I did not get out until almost 3. I was starving!! I found "supportive" DH brought me a BLT sandwich with mustard and tater tots. I was a good girl and threw away the taters. I ended up eating the whole sandwich and then a packet of oatmeal. Tonight he is spinning (I am icing my knee). He wants me to meet him at a Pho restaurant at 8. I am so very hungry. I am being good - so far I've eaten a peach, a small can of V8 and a bag of popcorn and lots of water.
I'm not in trouble since I am typing not eating but I know that struggling should not be necessary!
Lesson learned and relearned - don't get too hungry, be prepared with snacks at work and buy more vegetables. (I need to write it down so I'll remember it next time!)
