Just Say No
I'm a big fan of the "just say no" campaign...and I wish I could translate that into my eating....I was doing great today...brought breakfast - special K and strawberry applesauce, brought lunch today - small salad, chicken breast on a hard roll with one piece of cheese and light mayo...and I had an apple and some goldfish for snacks in the morning and afternoon....I even had company over for dinner - salad, grilled chicken and boneless ribs and plain pasta with some italian dressing and seasonings...but here's my problem...when I get out of work every day, I'm starving...I eat a snack around 3 and I usually leave work at 4...but most days I'll either stop at some fast food chain on the way home and get a burger or chicken and fries, stop at a store for something and find my way into a bag of chips or come home and devour the first thing I see. I've tried eating my snack later...like while I'm driving but that usually means it's not very healthy. And I've tried coming right home and cooking but I either get distracted or I'm waiting for my husband so it's still warm for him....I do so good during the day....but 4PM and I become a ravenous animal....today it was Fritos...I don't even like them....does anyone else have this problem?
