Snack Attack

Uh oh. One of the definite side effects of not having a home computer is that I get bored while watching tv, and need something to do with my hands. Usually, that is when I'm trolling online and blogging or shopping or something. But last night, I used those hands and that boredom to consume a whole lot more snacks than normal. The fact that I went home from work early to get a bunch of laundry done meant I had even more hours in front of el boob tube. So, after getting home from work, I ate:

- hummus and reduced fat wheat thins
- a pepperoni pizza lean pocket (officially dinner)
- an entire bag of 94% fat free popcorn
- a sugar-free chocolate pudding cup

Now, none of these things were that bad for me at all....it was just the quantity, combined with the fact that I had a bigger Au Bon Pain lunch. So, just out of bored snacking, I ended up using SIX flex points yesterday. Ah!!!

This is why I need a home computer. Or some other diversion.... my friends keep telling me I need to take up knitting, but I don't see that happening. Maybe I need to do my nails. Wet nail polish is a real deterrant to snacking.

Just came across your blog, love it! I joined WW in Jan as well (also, by coincidence, I too live on 16th St (DC)), the first couple of weeks were the worst. Looking forward to reading more posts!

Welcome, Natalie! I'd love to hear your stories... and if you're ever looking for a walking buddy on 16th street, I could be convinced. :-)

Hello! We should totally swap stories! I could be convinced for walking too, I don't get to the gym nearly as often as I would like. I couldn't find an email address on your site, but mine is nataliemjones@yahoo.com.
