My honey is a chef, so he works odd hours. I am fine with this. It took me a while to get used to, but now it's good. He loves what he does, and we get some weekend time off together to enjoy together time. He is one of two chefs at his restaurant.
The problem is that the other chef left. I'm not going to bore you with the details, but the gist is that my honey is the only one doing the cooking now. This means that he is working EXTRA long hours, sometimes from 11am - 11pm. I understand that he has to do this until they can hire someone else - the good/bad thing is that my honey is good at his job and is the only one there right now that can do what he does. Sigh.
So other than the huge problem of not getting to see my honey nearly as much as I'd like to is that I spend many days by myself. I am ok in the morning, ok in the afternoon, but when evening rolls around, all I want to do is eat eat eat. Yesterday I was doing really well until dinner. I had a bowl of cereal. And another one. Then some pasta with marinara. Then two bowls of frozen yogurt. Sigh... it's like because nobody is here to watch me eat it, I'm not eating it at all. Weird, I know.
This morning I'm feeling a little bummed. Honey has to go in early today - they are doing a lunch for a local business (they usually just do dinner), so lord knows when I'll see him tonight. I'm feeling sad and a little angry, too. I'm angry at the restaurant for waiting this long to find someone else... It's been almost three weeks and my honey has been working just about every day. So I suppose that food has been taking the place of my honey. Sigh...
So to analyze, my problem time is evening. What can I do to make this not a problem? Schedule workouts in the evening. I need about 1-2 hours of no eating *before* my workout, and after my workout I don't feel like ruining all my hard work. I can also plan evening activities, preferable away from home.
I keep telling myself this won't last forever, but it's hard. I know it would be much worse if I didn't have the support of my Spark friends. Thank you!
