Snack Habits

I’ve just eaten more tea (dinner) than I needed (ooh but it was yummy) and have managed to waddle down to my bedroom for a rest. (The lingering lethargy from my virus hit again this afternoon and all I’ve wanted to do is lie on my bed.) Almost as soon as I got here, I had the urge to find something to snack on! It’s quite ridiculous! As if eating a single bite more wouldn’t make me feel sick!

I don’t have a massive problem with food, it’s just enough to stop me being as healthy as I’d like. I do love chocolate and on Monday I managed to eat a whole block of Cadbury Caramello in two sittings. However, I don’t spend most of my time thinking about or eating junk food. I tend to just give in once, but that once usually means that I won’t eat badly all day except for that single time, and that adds up!

The thing I do find, as I have said before, is that I use food when I’m bored or unsatisfied, and now it’s just a habit. That is what tonight was an example of. I hadn’t even had a chance to bored, a snack was just the first option. Luckily, I am satiated, and that strategy seems to be helping to turn my mind from snacking, so far.


About Zaiene

In the hustle and bustle of everyday life I am inspired by so many different ideals of how to live a happy, fulfilled and productive life but struggle to get around to it. Large scale changes are intimidating and difficult to sustain, so this is my bite-sized life experiment. Each week*, I will find one thing in my life to drop and one thing to add. I will try to drop things that have a negative, unhealthy or over-absorbing effect on my life. I will try to add things that will have a positive, healthy, empowering or useful effect on my life. The experiment is to see whether I can cope with these changes and whether they really do improve my life. *(I began it as each weekend, as a less intimidating challenge. After about ten months, I felt that I wanted whole-week - well, Monday-to-Friday - challenges.)
