Time Snacks

This Sparked Me!

I plan my afternoon snack for about 30-45 minutes before I leave the office.

I realized that coming home after work, rushing to put dinner on the table, focusing on three kids and their individual needs and greeting my husband all while the dog wants her walk and I'm STARVING was making me eat to much of the wrong food.

    I do this as well! That way, when I get home, I can just change into my workout clothes and start exercising, instead of rummaging through the pantry and heading to the couch!

    I do that too. It helps me fight the urge to stop at a fast food restaurant, or ice cream stand during my 45 minute commute.

    Good idea...saves one from nibbling while fixing dinner.

    I do the exact same thing for the exact same reasons plus add trying to get a workout before dinner!
