Tired of Snackin'

Tuesday, September 10, 2013

So I'm sitting at my office desk as I write and snacking. Snack, snack all damn day. Yeah, its ok food. Granola bars, fruit and lately boiled eggs. I thought if I admitted to or own up to being an emotional eater I could deal with all the snacking I was doing but sometimes I snack my dinner away and often end up having to bake a fish fillet for super to stay under my calorie count for the day. Anyway, back to snacking, snacking and more snacking. Its like I cant bring enough fruit into work for the day because of all the snacking I'm doing. Honestly, I'm safest when I'm asleep at home in my bed. Grapes, apples and peaches even late at night. What is it? Why cant I just not eat if I'm not hungry? Oh yeah, red meat kills my calorie count for the day too. I've often considered giving it up too but that's taking me to a whole other level that I'm not educated enough to give up YET.

    I have the same problem, especially if I haven't gotten much rest the night before I catch myself snacking on sunflower seeds. One thing that helped me was putting my snacks in the break room fridge (that is if no one in your office will eat it). It makes me only snack during my break times and it actually makes me take my breaks. Of course our break room is all the way on the other side of the building.

    The in between time I keep a 32oz jug that I fill with water (I throw some cucumbers, lemons or oranges into it) and if I start to feel like I want to snack I drink as much water as I can in one drink and if after I'm done I still want to snack I go get my snack.

    That's what works for me. Keep going though you can do it!!! emoticon

    Sometimes I go through super snacking days. I've noticed way more cravings lately and wonder if the diminishing sun hours have anything to do with it.

    Anyway, I now put on a super dancey song for 3 minutes and dance and then give myself permission to snack if I still want it.

    Sounds silly, but it gets rid of 90% of the snacking and gives me some exercise (a lot on some days!).

    Water, water, and more water. It will fill you up and get you past the crisis. Works for me anyway
