Robyn said something in her 10 Things Thursday post today that reminded me of a thought/question I've been pondering for a bit.
Food/meal schedules. I often find myself hungry (and really hungry not head hungry) before dinner time. like 4:30/5 o'clock. But when I stop and think, If I ate lunch at 11 like I usually do, that's more than reasonable to expect to be hungry. If I'm eating the right portions, then I should be not hungry for 3-4 hours right? so totally reasonable to be hungry at 4:30. So, I guess, what I'm thinking is I need to work in an *appropriate* snack. I'm thinking a bit of hummus and veggies or a small portion of beef jerky or something. There's just so much conflicting info out there. "3 meals a day!! no more! no less!!" and then "5 small meals a day, keeps your metabolism going" .. blah blah. I figure I just need to do what works for me.
Speaking of portion sizes, I really really need to go buy more of the 1 cup sized ziploc containers. It's just too easy to say "one more scoop" in a bigger container. I used that today and at first my head was like "that is SO not enough chicken salad (Costco, very yummy)!" and I told it "remember how you felt yesterday after more than this? yes, this is enough" so we'll see how after lunch goes :)
blah, I'm back and blogging more than ever! and more randomly than ever too I think.
