Since I just went public with my new mission yesterday, not much has really changed, but I’m writing for a second day in a row, so that’s good.
No gym time yesterday as I had a dinner to attend after work. But I am happy to say that I didn’t pig out. Little victories. I love food.
Like I just said, I love food. And I feel like I am hungry more than the average person. After some trial and error in the past, I found that it really is best for me to eat something small every few hours, otherwise I end up too hungry and am at risk for making poor decisions.
So….I figured I’d share with you the foods that have helped me snack and not feel guilty.
I found these a couple of years ago. Only 90 calories and a really great sweet treat. Plus, I love the texture, which feels much more decadent than it really is.
I love cheese! I also know that cheese isn’t particularly healthy. Part-skim string cheese is a great way to indulge in cheese without going overboard. (Full disclosure, I don’t always buy Polly-O, the store brand works for me too!)
This is my latest (and greatest) find. I’ve never been a fan of popcorn, but for some reason I found myself in the popcorn aisle at the supermarket and grabbed the kettle corn. What appealed to me was the sweet/salty flavor as well as the fact that you can eat a decent amount without feeling guilty. These bags are portioned so that you can eat the whole thing. This is one of my favorite snacks at the moment.
So, I did bring workout clothes to work today, and provided that work isn’t too crazy, I plan to give the whole gym-at-lunch thing a try. Wish me luck!!
