My Horrible Addiction
I am ashamed to admit this, because it has been going on for quite some time now and honestly I don't know where it came from or how it started and I'm trying to fight it, but it's very difficult.
My addiction is....
EATING CHIPS... directly after a workout.
I know, I know please don't even tell me how horrible this is because I know it is, I just can't seem to stop and again I’m not too sure how it even started. When I exit the gym I have a strong craving for salty chips even cheesy chips, my inner food junkie has been re-awakened.
However, I usually have some type of snack in my gym bag, but I've realized that I haven't been carrying anything with me so that could be a reason, but NO sometimes I ditch my little snack and head to the store and purchase a bag of chips, so that’s not even a reason for theses slightly compulsive eatings.
So I'm actually quite confused and somewhat disappointed at myself for indulging in such "junk" right after a workout, a pretty darn good workout if I do say so myself. But what type of snacks should I consume when I exit the gym? I have about a 35-40 minute commute and because of that I need to find something that can hold my hunger until I get home.
Maybe I should just start leaving my house with no money when I'm headed to the gym, that way I know I can't purchase anything unnecessary. Sounds like a plan.
Is that a good plan? I could use some help on this. So, if you have advice please send it my way. I look forward to hearing it.
