I have this HUGE project in my Lit class, and it's draining me. I spend my days in libraries researching, and my night hi-liting and notecard-ing. I'm usually pretty good about breakfast (normally toast and some fruit, and definately apple cidar since it's fall!), and, although sometimes my lunch is kinda skimpy, I'm pretty good about that too: a salad, some veggie chili, etc. As soon as school is over is when I fall apart. I do as much work as I can before I have to go to my job. I eat dinner fairly early then, about 4:30, since I normally work 5-9 at Fazoli's. Here in lies the problem. I ALWAYS get hungry at work. I don't know why, but my appetite just skyrockets. I always end up munching a few breadsticks, and then taking home some penne or something. I know pasta is good for you, but with the consistent diet of it that I've been eating, it can't be healthy. Basically, I'm eating 2 dinners, both of normal size, one at 4:30, the other at 9:30. On top of that, after work, I can't stop munching. I eat granola bars, salsa, ice cream, peanut butter, anything I can get my hands on. I'm not a big person, but I've gained back a few pounds that I worked hard to lose, and it irritates me. I hate this. I feel so unhealthy, and I feel fat (even though I totally know I'm not). Eating late at night just makes me feel bad, even though I know that I don't really need to lose weight, eating late make me feel... I dunno. Lazy? I have been feeling that lately, but that's probably because of this project in Lit and will be over in 3 weeks. Can anyone give me any suggestions on how to dig myself out of this rut I'm in and get back to eating good foods? I can't really just not buy only good foods, because I'm 17, and I live with my parents, neither of which are veggie and one of which eats all the time.
