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.
