Making an effort

This week has been ok. Not great, but not bad. I have worked out most days and been making an effort to eat well. "Making an effort" doesn't really sound that awesome, right?

Eat in Private/Wear in Public Well, I have been making healthier meals, but the snacking and mindless eating is a problem. For some reason, it's really easy to just forget that I am trying to eat well now. Like all of a sudden, I find myself grabbing a couple Oreos when my boyfriend is eating them. And then I remember Oreos aren't exactly on the good foods list.

And then today after I worked out (which makes it worse), I ate chips and some avocado dip we had. Duuuumb.

What I eat in private is still the main issue. What am I, a closet eater now? I just tend to eat way more and more unhealthy when I am alone. My boyfriend can eat whatever he wants and not gain weight, but he doesn't really snack too much, especially during the day. If he were around, he'd probably suggest breakfast or lunch rather than just eating chips.

I need to get some healthier snacks or just keep it at the forefront of my mind more. I have to make this a priority. Do you guys have any tips for not making that quick, impulsive decision to eat something you know you shouldn't?

Side note.. I need to fix what is at the root of this. Re-reading Women, Food and God  might need to be in my near future.

Don't have the unhealthy stuff at home. At least until you have established healthy snacking habits. Cut up fruit and vegetables instead if you want to snack. And if you need that crunch factor, try roasting chickpeas with spice or such.

I definitely eat more (and more unhealthy foods) when no one is watching. Probably because that way no one can judge me, even though I am totally judging myself. Your best bet is only having healthy options around that way eating unhealthy isn't even an option.
