For my afternoon snack today, I am forcing down the last of those apples from my picking adventure last week. I feel confident I am good on my fiber intake for several months to come....
My experiment of eating more often during the day is going well so far, despite a bit of mindless snacking upon arriving home from work yesterday. But it wasn't nearly to the same extent. I actually *listened* to the tiny voice that said stop this time. Part of it very well could be just plain ol' habit, so if that's the case, if I make sure I'm not hungry when I walk in the door, I might be able to do the mental work necessary to avoid consuming those extra points in 2 minutes flat. Either that, or I'm going to start using the front door in order to avoid the kitchen altogether!
The schedule I'm following goes something like:
7:30am 1/2 cup fiber one cereal, 1/2 cup silk = 1 pt
10:00am yoplait light yogurt = 2 pt
12:30pm turkey, spinach & feta in a FlatOut wrap = 3 pt
progresso light soup = 0 pt
baked lays = 2 pt
2:30pm 6oz apple = 1 pt
4:00pm kashi peanut peanut butter bar = 2 pt
5:30pm popcorn = 1 pt
7:00pm grilled chicken salad = 8 pt
skim milk = 2 pt*
Total = 22 points
*I am often guilty of forgoing listed skim milk at dinner for a weight watchers cookies & cream bar. Not ideal, but mmmmm!!!!
I could really get the hang of this eating all the time thing!
