Last night I ate half of this muffin and at least a 1/2 cup of unsalted peanuts. Recently this late-night snacking has become a habit. How can I get out of it? I’m eating a lot during the day but for some reason I just want to munch after dinner, and I don’t want to let it get out of control. Any tricks or suggestions? I’m hoping that maybe just blogging about it will make me hold myself accountable.
This morning I woke up still full from nut-overload. I did yoga on my own for about 25 minutes, then spent a liesurely morning packing lunches and cleaning the kitchen.
I got to work and made breakfast - 1/2 cup oats, 1.5 cups water (soupy today), some Chobani vanilla stolen from the Chobani I brought to have with lunch, a whole banana, and some cheerios. For some reason I was stuffed and wasn’t even hungry when I left for my hour-long lunch walk. I think it was last night’s nuts still.
Lunch was a delicious fruit salad with the rest of the Chobani vanilla and 1/4 cup of peanuts. It included an Asian pear, 3-4 clementines, and a banana. Topped with cinnamon and lemon juice. I also had a WW wrap on the side.
Snack was two medium honeycrisps and a whole wheat wrap.
For dinner I made a stir-fry topped with organic agave ketchup and had brown rice with it. I really like brown rice recently.
For dessert I had several things:
- shared this Strawberry Chobani and rice krispies with Bobby
- another 1/2 cup rice with 1/2 cup applesauce
- a few bites of a muffin Bobby was having (unpictured)
- a few small handfuls of peanuts (unpictured)
I think I did better tonight than last night – I did snack after dinner but not to the extent that I sometimes do!
Have a great night; almost Friday!
