Right now I’m eating my usual breakfast – a good cup of coffee (enjoyed while chatting with my daughter) and porridge with cranberry sauce.
I have to say that my attempts to lose one pound per week on a consistent basis has been a total flop. If the goal had been to gain, on the other hand, I might consider this somewhat of a success. Sadly, it wasn’t and my clothes are starting to feel the extra!
I’ve figured out one problem that comes at work. We have a coffee bar that sells off it’s baked goods after 6 pm. Their baked goods are delicious and at 69 cents, I’ve gotten into the habit of enjoying. Of course, in spite of my best intentions, I enjoy to many of them and mostly at night, when I least want to eat.
My biggest problem is eating at night by the computer. I need to create a different habit for my late evenings. Getting home from work at 10 or later doesn’t help much either. I need some time to settle down.
I’m afraid to write down what I’m going to do, just in case I blow it, but here goes.
Since I so enjoy my morning coffee with frothed milk, I’m going to try having a decaf version with tea. And I’m going to start using that hour after work to do some knitting – skip the computer time. I think that keeps me awake far too long.
(I guess I’m not the only one who had this idea!)
