Good Morning Family,
Happy Monday..........I am off to work here shortly but I always have to stop into the HW Diner for my quick cup of coffee and a quick chat with all of you.  cool

Are you so busy that you barely have time to eat? Do you grab whatever you can find, without putting any thought into your diet?

Today’s Question:

Does your Schedule Dictate your Diet?

Yes, we frequently wind up eating less healthy meals and going out to eat because we get so caught up with work, volunteering, caring for animals that our own health gets put to the wayside. My husband and I love to cook so that part isn't the problem, its our crazy schedule and meal planning that seem to get in the way. Plus we're a wee bit lazy after spending hours with horses so that doesn't help matters any.

No I don't think it does affect my diet. Mine is more affected by my Crohns Disease. I am a person who has to eat little bits of food every few hours or I get nauseous.

I'm the same as Nanners. I have to think about what I eat... and I even keep a food diary...

My real problem right now, though, is eating.... I'm very low on food... All I have is chicken noodle soup, some fish, a can of peas (that's a last resort. It's leftover from the last time I bought peas... apparently, they upset my tummy), some soy milk (thanks to a thoughtful roommate), a box of rice, and a little bit of oatmeal...

I do get food stamps the fifteenth... and when I do, I'll be eating more.... and with a more healthy variety....
I think I am being picked on by life, sometimes. But's that okay. Life and I are good buddies... I know life doesn't mean no harm. It just is the way it is. I can accept that.

Unfortunately yes.  Since I started back to school, I just don't have the time too cook or make a more healthy meal.  On top of that, my husband had his work hours changed and is not home for dinner anymore, I always cooked a good dinner when he worked first shift, now he's gone from 3pm until about 2am as he works 4 ten hour days a week.  It's been miserable!  I know that my lack of energy and always feeling tired is because I'm not eating as well as I normally do, but I only have 8 weeks of school left, so I'll be able to work on my eating habits then.

Yes, if I'm really busy, I tend to throw together a quick meal. . . But when I have the time I'll make stuff that has lots of veggies and variety :)

No, I don't think that my schedule dictates my diet. I'm usually not that busy since I hurt my back and all I do is lay around. I've been eating less than healthy foods lately but I could change that if I really wanted to.

My schedule totally dictates my diet (that and my chronic gastritis).  I eat on the run in the mornings.  Usually grab Pop Tarts (how healthy is that, NOT) as I run out of the house at 5am to get to work.  Breaks are nonexistent now so whatever I can grab and eat at my desk is what I have.  By the time I get home from first job and picking up niece and nephew from school and home from second job, dinner is usually whatever I can microwave or pop in the toaster.  Toast with cheese is a mainstay for me.  It's a horrible diet and I know I should change it but just never seem to get around to it.

Yes - if I had my way (and could afford it), all meals would either be eaten out or fast food at my desk. The issue of time always feels like it's more important than healthy eating. In reality, if I ate better, I'd probably have more energy to do the things I have to more efficiently.

I openly admit my LAZINESS dictates my diet.

My schedule isn't the problem for me, either. It's a combination of laziness, lack of confidence in the kitchen, and general apathy when it comes to food.

I will have to admit it is not my schedule that dictates my diet but my emotions.  I eat when I am happy and I eat when I am sad.  I do not choose wisely and I know this is something I need to work on.
