    Default Eating out of boredom

    I'm a stay at home mum of 2 toddlers and 27 weeks pregnant. I feel as though I eat to kill time. And I'm constantly trying to distract myself with something else so that I don't binge. I am watching what I eat and recording it to be accountable for my calories.

    What do you do to distract yourself? Posting on forums is one of mine!

    Some days I eat heaps other days like today I sleep a lot of the day and only eat breakfast and dinner and nothing in between. Actually this is the third day in a row of sleeping most of the school day. Monday I had porridge for breakfast, then some rice crackers with vegemite and cheese slices, bought a roast chook and had chicken sandwiches with lettuce and tomato, then in the afternoon I had some biscuits, an apple and a mandarine. Depends how bad the morning sickness is, sometimes I can't even look at food, sometimes it comes and goes.

    Hi Analioness

    i know how you feel! Being a SAHM means there are lots of hours in the day to fill in!

    I find that having porridge (made with low fat milk) with a sprinkle of cinnamon and a teaspoon of honey for breakfast fills me up until lunch time. I've also been making a big pot of vegie soup to have for lunch with a piece of toast.

    Usually it's in the afternoons when I eat out of boredom so I try and perhaps have a cup of tea or something, as dinner is usually pretty early ( 5:30 / 6 pm).

    My real downfall is when my two girls are in bed for the night.... That's when I crave something sweet. Especially if I'm watching Masterchef or something, lol.

    Good luck, don't be too hard on yourself.

    I too eat quite healthy mains but its the snacking that gets me. Nights are the worst. I've started to have Ryvita rye crackers with abc spread and cheese and a glass of milk. That keeps me full. But my husband then walks in with a bag of chips ands its all down hill from there! I'm knuckling down these last 3 months...the aim is to only put on 3 kilos until birth!! Fingers crossed!!
