This is an issue I'm facing right now. Actually, it may be a non-issue, but I'd love some advice.
So here's the deal. I eat late...generally between 9:00 and 10:00 pm, almost never before 8:00 and occasionally after 10:00. I'm not snacking or stress eating or mindless eating- that's when I have dinner. Here's what happens in my day.
I typically wake up sometime between 6:30 and 7:30. I'll shower, let the dogs out, and go have breakfast. If I don't have appointments that morning I'll either work in the office or run errands. Then it's off to my appointments.
The problem with in-home dog training is that a good percentage of people work 9-5. So, their appointments fall after 5:00 pm. Take yesterday for example. After running errands all morning and meeting with the roofer, I went to a 4:30, a 6:00, and a 7:30. I got home at 9:00. I was planning on working out before dinner, but I was exhausted and hungry, and I had work to do in the office, so Hans put dinner together. It was on the table by 10:00 pm.
It was a tasty dinner too. We had apple-cider chicken over pasta with green beans. The portions were quite reasonable, and the dinner was wholly satisfying. I had a banana for dessert (something I'm fine with not having when they are not in the house, but that I can't live without when they're right in front of me).
After dinner I trained the dogs for an hour (and had a blast doing additional work with Cody). Then I went to bed. I slept in later this morning, but that's simply because after some additional water intake yesterday I had to get up a few times in the middle of the night.
So, my questions are these: 1) Is this even an issue? I know eating late isn't ideal, but the meals are healthy and well-balanced. 2) Do you have any tips? I thoroughly enjoy my sit-down meals with Hans. I already eat lunch on the run a good portion of the time, and I'd prefer to not do that with dinner too. So if you have any suggestions that would be fantastic.
