This observation really hit me yesterday - we've all heard about boredom eating but have you thought about it... I hadn't, at least not in depth until I observed it yesterday. Each day this week, I get very hungry mid-morning and can't wait for lunch but I didn't yesterday...why? I thought about it and it occurred to me that while, every other day, I've been busy at work, it was more or less 'busy work' but yesterday, I had a meeting. I was focused on what the discussion was in the meeting and not whether I wanted something to eat or not. In other words, I wasn't bored (well, I was but not in the sense of eating). So far today, I've run around doing work but again, I'm hungry. Since I've made this observation, I'm not going to allow myself to snack, just for the heck of it.
