I didn’t want to add my foodie pics to my previous blog on the discussion of the Biggest Loser and if being 10-15lbs over weight is healthy or not. Please read up here to add your thoughts and experiences!
Last Night’s Dinner
Last night I made another chicken pot pie and it was oh-so-delicious!
Are you a chicken pot pie lover? I really don’t eat it much, but it has just sounded so good these past couple of weeks! It’s been a great meal that provides me with plenty of leftovers! It’s so simple to make too!
Today I had another cereal morning.
Today’s workout was a mix of cardio and weight training. I started with the weights:
- Incline Dumbbell Chest Press 3 x 10
- Lat Pull down 3 x 10
- Lunges 3 x 10
- Seated Cable Row 3 x 10
- Hamstring Press using stability ball 2 x 15
Then I did 30 minutes on the Arc Trainer and 20 minutes on the treadimill walking on an incline of 10% at a 3.0 speed for 10 minutes and cooled down for 10 minutes watching the Jersey Housewives on the Today Show 🙂 I am obsessed with this show!
Overeating at Night when Home Alone
Question: Do you tend to eat more when alone at home? Since living alone the past year, I notice that I do in fact tend to eat more at night since I am alone.
When Andy is here or I have friends around, I typically don’t eat as much as I do when alone. Don’t get me wrong, I still eat enough, but I tend to not eat too much (past my fullness). Lately I’ve been getting the urge to keep going back into the kitchen and snacking on something. And it’s not because I am hungry.
I think I use food at night as something to do. I definitely do get bored living alone and let’s face it, eating is fun and enjoyable. I don’t mind overeating from time to time (sometimes food just tastes so good!), but it’s not a habit I want to keep daily. I DO eat plenty during the day, so I know I am truly eating out of boredom.
Do you have any strategies that you use (and work for you) to stop from over eating at night time or any other time?
