I think I've finally figured it out

Knock on wood - I may have found a healthy eating strategy that works for during the work day.

During the week I'm awake from 5:30am to 10:30pm and in my sedentary office job I get hungry/bored way quicker than I do on the weekends when I'm out and about doing things. This week my eating schedule has been VERY precise and it's looked like this:

6:00am boiled egg and 1 slice of ww bread (2 points)
10:00am bran flakes and skimmed milk (3 points)
1:00pm salad leaves with roasted vegetables and chicken (4 points)
3:30pm cup of soup (1.5 points)
5:30pm 2 apples (1 point)
7:30pm dinner

My strategy still leaves a decent portion of my points for dinner and maybe a little dessert but also ensures that I'm never more than a few hours from eating my next mini-meal during the day. This worked on Tuesday pre-fueling my 5 mile run home and it worked yesterday, where I skipped an apple and the soup but had pizza, wine and doughballs for dinner!

Hopefully it'll get me through today too, I brought all my running gear with me to do mission: run home part 2!

  1. That looks like a good way to spread your meals out. It's hard getting up early because everything is pushed back and you want lunch at like, 10am!
