Do any of you want to eat as soon as you get home regardless of when you last ate? How do you deal with this? I guess willpower and a brain that is in gear are obvious solutions.
I also want to find something to eat as soon as I get to Mom's and again regardless of when I last ate.
I have been using doing a long route and being tired when I get home to slack up. I was thinking to myself as I drove today that many (most) of those trying to lose weight have jobs and still exercise regularly. There went that excuse. My usual routine on Monday-Wednesday-Friday is Step Aerobics in the morning, get home about 10 a.m. - get ready and do my usual route which takes 2.5 hours then the rest of the day is mine.
On Tuesdays I have Bible Study Fellowship at 9 a.m., then do my route, home early afternoon, Jazzercise at 5:30 p.m. Thursdays I can do my route first thing and be done and home by about 10:30 a.m. and have Jazzercise at 5:30.
I have to eat in the car - breakfast and lunch. I have a PBJ sandwich for breakfast (Ezekiel bread, natural pnb, and sugar free jelly) and a Quest protein bar for lunch. I do get my water in while on my route. I know where every restroom is and when to drink water so that I can plan my visits.
It usually works to just relax a bit when I get home. Sit down with tea/coffee/whatever and go through the mail or something to help change gears. Can't do that at Mom's though and she has a candy dish on her coffee table but I don't have to eat it for sure.
Does a change of routine throw you? How do you deal with it?
I think it must be the change of schedule, in fact, I am sure of it. Only one more week of this long route and then I will be back to my usual routine.
