Another thing that I tend to let happen is that I will have all of my meals mapped out, but then I don't count on being a bit hungrier sooner after a meal than I think is acceptable. I try and wait 3 or 4 hours between meals and when I get hungrier sooner I try and "snack" it off. This is really what I've been letting happen too often. And when I have too many snack foods in the house, like raisins and dried fruit, crackers, candy (yep candy), let's see.....what else do I nosh on? Oh yes, nuts or PNB. It can even be something like cold bacon!
I got home from work/training this afternoon and had a great big bowl of the yummiest cauliflower, bean, and kale soup, and boy was my tummy full! A couple of hours later I found myself feeling hungry, but it wasn't "time to eat" again yet. So trying to stave off hunger I opened the fridge and saw the bacon I fried up with some ground pork yesterday and started in on it. Did I think I was going to make a snack of freakin' cold pork and bacon? Goodness, I could have a whole meal instead. I have plenty of food already made and just as good, in fact better.
So I heated up another bowl of yummy soup!
I've got to start reminding myself that I can eat if I'm hungry. And, if I am indeed hungry, then to eat a proper meal....not cold bacon! (or put the bacon in my soup!)
