So here I sit, 10:30 in the morning and all the snacks I brought for the entire day are gone! All I have left in my lunch bag is my sandwich…
This is a problem I face regularly. I am a chronic snacker. If it’s there, I will eat it and because I have already counted my snacks into my points for the day, I figure it’s fine. It is fine, until the mid afternoon hunger pangs start in and I have to add to my already consumed snacks before my stomach eats itself.
In my job, I can snack at my desk whenever I want to as long as said snack doesn’t require use of silverware. I get to work at 8 and try to eat breakfast before I leave my house. So what have I snacked through this morning? I have had a fiber one bar, a rice krispies treat, strawberries, dill pickles, 2 tangerines, all in 2 hours time and after having oatmeal for breakfast.
I have tried setting a snack time for myself, but i just can’t seem to stick to it. I think I need to start packing snacks that take me longer to eat so I can keep my hands busy longer; maybe some gum… I don’t know, all I know is all this talk about snacks is making me hungry….
