First of all, I got a job! Yay. It is a hostess position, so I'm not getting too excited, but at least I will be working. I start today. It's a full time position, so I'll have somewhere to be and something to do now, which is the great part. And hopefully I'll be able to meet some people around my age.
I am also thinking that with working full time, I won't be able to munch on food at random times during the day out of boredom or anything. This way, I can plan my meals and when I'm going to eat and therefore eat less calories.
Since the job is a hostess position, I'll be working at night, so I won't be home for dinner with the family, which is definitely going to help me. I won't have to eat what everyone else is eating, and I can eat when I want to. This will also help because I've realized that my family eats so late (like 8pm) and if I eat lunch around 12-1pm, I get hungry before that, and end up snacking around 6pm. And I keep thinking, hey wouldn't it be nice just to have dinner at 6pm and not add more calories just because I'm hungry? Eating dinner as a family is like a big deal with my family so if I were to just eat by myself, I think my mom would be insulted or think something was wrong. So now that I'm working during the dinner hours, I just avoid that whole situation.
Does work help you all keep to a better eating schedule or does it end up making you busier and then more likely to eat quick, junk foods?
