My Urge To Snack

I’m sure I’ve blogged about this before… snacking. Let me be honest, about 75% of my thoughts involve food. Maybe more. All I know is that I think about food a lot. I start my day with really good intentions. Drink my bulletproof coffee, have a couple eggs (cooked in coconut oil of course). If I’m not hungry yet, I’ll make my eggs and save them for later in the day. A donut? No way. I’m eating good today. Does it cross my mind? Every day when I drive past Flyboy Donuts. Seriously, have you had one of their donuts? YUM!

I start in with the coffee and I hit it hard. Chris and I meet every Tuesday morning. Watch out on those days. By the time we roll in for our 11:30 workout, we are on fire. I feel really bad for Annie now that she has to coach us on Tuesdays at 11:30… sorry, got off track. So I’m still doing pretty good by noon unless of course I decided that I “deserved” a breve instead of black coffee. Time to workout…I usually get my workout in over the noon hour and have a decent lunch after. Yep, still feeling good and haven’t eaten anything I shouldn’t.

So about 4-5 pm I get home. I’ve had plenty of calories for the day, good fats, healthy carbs and lots of protein BUT, for some reason, I start to snack. Not just a small snack here and there, I’m talking serious snacking. Maybe it’s veggies with dip, maybe it’s dark chocolate with pecans, there’s a good chance that it’s dried mangos. Regardless, once I start, I cannot stop! By the time dinner rolls around, I’m not hungry. That makes my husband upset and I’m not thrilled either. I eat a little bit at dinner anyway and then I proceed to top it off with dried mangos, dark chocolate and, on special occasions (Wednesday and Thursday), popcorn with lots of Kerrygold butter. Don’t get me started on Kerrygold butter.

So what I want to know is why do I start? I’m truly not hungry but I have this strong desire to snack. There is no doubt that it’s an addiction for me. I don’t think it’s the sugar even as much as it is just the act of snacking. Once I start, I can’t stop! A good day is when the snacking doesn’t start until 7 pm. That means I only have about an hour before I brush my teeth and stop eating for the day. Let’s just say I have a donut at 7 am… well, I’m screwed.

So this June I think will eliminate the snacking. I’ll focus on making my meals substantial enough to get me to the next meal. Lots of small meals throughout the day? That doesn’t work for me. I truly believe I snack because I’m nervous or stressed so finding other ways to deal with my stress is on my to-do list. I’ll keep you posted on my progress. It is swimsuit season approaching, right? I can’t think of a better reason to tighten up the diet. Wish me luck!
