Weekends are my worst- work time is easy as I'm so busy and it's an active job, so it's all good. I've found that when I eat with hubby I give myself a larger portion (so it's 'fair'
) He's about a foot taller and 40 kilos heavier though, so I have to stop doing that!!!! We actually eat pretty well, it's just the AMOUNT.
Dinners usually consist of rice or pasta (brown and wholegrain) with a bucketload of vegies and some or tofu or egg. Lately we've also been making pizzas with the large pita breads- problem with those is although they're packed with healthy ingredients, they are so delicious that I (again) end up eating way more than I need to! It always happens!!! I'm conscious of keeping my energy levels up, and in the afternoons I often have a muesli bar or something- well, last week I bought a packet of trailmix thinking it would do me four days (I bought 200g worth). Oh my goodness, 10 mins after opening the thing, the whole lot was gone!!!!!!!! Over a meals worth of calories gone in a snack!!! I won't be buying them again...have decided on snack portions of yoghurt instead.
So anyway, I figure recognition of a problem is half the battle! On a good note, hubby and I usually sit down with a packet of chippies and watch the footy show on the Thurs night. Last night I said a firm 'no' to the chippies, and thankfully didn't feel like I was missing out at all. A win
Good luck this weekend MM, hope its an easy one! I'm on a course this week, so miss 2 days of the gym- and won't be able to catch up until thursday- wish me luck!
