Happy Monday!!!!! I hope you all had a great weekend, now it is back to the weekday grind.
Something I really struggle with is eating only when I am hungry. Most often for me it’s dinner; dinnertime will roll around and for some reason or other i am not hungry, whether it’s because i ate a late lunch, I have already consumed enough calories, I ate something bad that has caused me to bloat…..whatever the reason if dinner rolls around and i am not hungry i tend to still make myself eat something. I know, that sounds so counterproductive to weight loss, but i get inside my head and tell myself it’s unhealthy not to eat, instead i need to remind myself, “if you are not hungry there is probably a reason why”.
Also like most people i am guilty of bored, mindless eating. When i am doing something like watching TV that doesn’t engage my brain or something to that extant, i tend to snack more. I know i am not hungry but i am bored so i decided i am hungry for a snack.
This motivational photo seemed perfect to convey this since it is our mental strength is what will help with this.
How do you keep yourself from needlessly snacking?
