We've always eaten dinner late in our house.
Pre-K: by the time we got home from worked, said hello, goofed off, and exercised, it was 8pm before D started cooking.
Post-K: we enjoy eating dinner after she is asleep so we can relax and have adult conversations.
On a good night, we eat dinner around 9pm.
It's the perfect storm for weight gain.
I snack big and then have a late dinner.
Bad news for my waist-line.
Noticing that I am not losing the weight I wanted to (in fact, I've gained a little bit back post-nursing and eating vegan), I decided that something needed to change.
My bad snacking habits need to stop.
And today is the day. I'm going to try eating a healthy, high-protein snack in the late afternoon (today it will be on my drive home from Baltimore to DC). I'm experimenting this week with protein bars (D bought me an assortment yesterday at the grocery store). I know I need to eat something post-workout and post-lunch. I'll be hungry and crabby if I don't.
But I need to curb my eating.
Packing a snack and limiting myself to said packed snack is the plan for now.
If this doesn't work, I'll be looking for a Plan B. Suggestions/recommendations are encouraged. Please let me know how you avoid snack attacks? And please share any healthy snacks you eat to curb your appetite between meals.
