Most weeks I go through my day, have a healthy breakfast and a comparable lunch. Maybe I have a snack, maybe not. Usually I drink my water. When I get home from work is when it hits me: the Oversnack Attack!
I leave work, excited to get home and see my lovies. I am not thinking about food. I get home, I come in the door, speak to all of the two legged and four legged babies and it happens, I go to have a small snack and I land in an Oversnack Attack. I hardly ever see it coming. I launch into this compulsive eating craziness.
These Oversnack Attacks baffle me to a degree. But, how can they? I wonder. They come from me, they happen through me, why don't I know all of the reasons?
My plan today is to be very purposeful and mindful to avoid the eating frenzy that takes place at this time. I was successful Monday. What I did that day is redirect myself any time I went toward or thought of food. I have the answers, I know I do, it's just figuring out what works in those moments and how to respond day to day without food.
Wish me luck on fending off the Oversnack Attack!
