So how about at work, we have lunch catered 4-5 days a week. Don't get me wrong - I love it but, In almost a month, only two lunches have been salads. There is always a dessert, too. I know I need protein (in the AM) to give me energy til lunch but I just don't want it. I crave bagels, muffins or pancakes! The thing is, by 10:30, it feels like all of that fuel is gone. I'm ravished by lunch time. Well, I've gained two pounds already. Monday I told myself that I was going to start skipping dinner. Have I skipped dinner this week? Nooo. The sickening thing is, I'm not even hungry in the evenings. It's like a habit I can't break. I don't want to join a gym because frankly, I've done that in the past and the gym rats kind of intimidate me. Plus, I go for a while, get bored with it and money is wasted. Does anyone have any tips or tricks? I've thought about juicing, but I hear that the produce alone can get kind of expensive. Has anyone tried protein shakes? Do they taste good? Are they filling? Do you have enough energy to make it from one meal to the next? I feel like if I could get on a healthier breakfast routine, start skipping dinner and fit in some exercise 3-4 days a week, I might be able to drop some weight - which needs to happen. Soon.
