Apologies in advance as this is a misery guts dump of a post.

I absolutely hate this period between 2 and 5pm. I’m so tired and so flat at this time of day. I’m just totally unproductive. I’m a morning person and can achieve just about anything before lunch … long runs, organising my boy for school, getting my family to school and work, managing a range of work issues including projects, HR, contracts etc etc. But come the afternoon and all I want to do is sleep … or eat.

Aaah so that’s where I’m heading with this. I cant sleep so I want to eat. Not because I’m hungry (I’ve had a good balanced lunch and a healthy afternoon snack) but I want to take my mind off this crappy feeling. I want distraction. I want oral satisfaction. I want to focus on something other than my crappy emotional state. Oh food glorious food!!

AAAAAAAAARGH I shall breathe and breathe some more until this feeling passes.

I am EXACTLY the same! AT the exact same time! If you find a solution please let me know... I have major sugar cravings from 2pm to 5pm every day. I have made my afternoon snack Diet jelly with Protein Powder and 1/2 a banana all mixed together and have found that helps, I start having little spoon fulls at about 2pm and make it last through to 3.30... then I am over the cravings and ready for cardio about 2 hours later :o)

Yep ditto! hate afternoons. fortunately I always have a 3pm meal...but yes, energy levels are so low. Totally love to just do it all in the morning. Lucky for me I work from home and can schedule in a little rest after noon I really feel sorry for gals that can't do that.
