If I had to choose one health related thing to leave in 2017, it would be under-eating, hands down.
Last night, I was up from 3:30 am -7:30 am because I decided to be a beast at the gym and then eat like a bird at home. In the time that I was awake, I had to eat half a bag of veggie sticks, a bagel, banana and a slice of sweet potato pie in order to finally be lulled back to sleep. While, I am fortunate that I could use the time to learn about retirement investment options, I would’ve preferred to sleep through the night. The unfortunate thing is that it messes with my schedule for the rest of the day because I didn’t wake up from my second sleep until 12 pm. I’m on winter break, so it’s not that big of an issue, but when this happens, and I have class or some meeting, I am not a happy camper.
It’s really not a conscious thing, which is why I need to be more intentional about eating snacks and meals at regular intervals throughout the day.
So, here are the necessary small goals to make this happen….
- Cook things that I’m excited about eating–I want to buy the Skinny Taste Cookbook
- Snacks on snacks on snacks–Get serious about shopping at Trader Joe’s once a month to buy nuts and various veggies that I can eat on the go
- Three meals and three snack schedule
