Rough night of snacking

Wednesday, May 30, 2018

emoticon what did I do??? Too many snacks.. why?
emoticon emoticon ugh... Today I will eat healthy, but I need to find out the why am I snacking at 10pm. Stress? Hormones? I don't have a set answer, but I need a new plan in place to break this snack cycle.
Part of this is me being tired. I know it seems counterintuitive to eat when tired, but it happens. This way I have the energy to do what needs to get done. Prep for the next day, clean up from dinner, relax after the house is in bed. One thing I need to try to do more of is prepping on the weekends. However, we were swamped with projects this weekend as nd no breakfast or lunch prep got done. I was able to prep dinners. Yeah. Breakfast and lunches have stumped me. I brought turkey deli meat, watermelon and protein powder with me today. Oh, I did also make oatmeal with protein powder and strawberries for breakfast. I am responsible for packing/making breakfast and lunch for 3-5 people. Ugh...happy to let kids eat school lunch some days. Tried every day, but it was a waste. Kids are picky eaters. Thankfully DH and MIL are easy. Need to get back to work for now, but will revisit, since I'm blogging all week.

    I snack when tired, when stressed and when I didn't eat enough good filling foods or protein at dinner time! Every day is a new chance for us, thankfully! Hope today is going well for you.

    Thanks ladies. Yes today I am planning better. Tea water is waiting downstairs for me.

    I too am inclined to want to snack more - mostly carbs - when I'm tired. Although most of the snacks in our house are reasonably healthy, even too much of a healthier snack (like wheat crackers) is not a good idea. And while I am retired, lunch remains my biggest challenge - unless there are good leftovers around!
    Good luck with your meal planning. emoticon
