I'm having a scheduling / eating conflict and I want to see what you would all would do and see if you have any ideas or advice.
I work a pretty normal 9-5 type job. I don't have a lunch "break" per se, but I usually have plenty of time to eat at a normal pace. I normally leave the office for lunch and get some kind of healthy food (we have a cafeteria, but there's also a few healthy chains nearby that I frequent). I'm not too into packing lunch because I like to get some fresh air and leave my desk for a bit. Anyway, I signed up to take a class on Monday evenings and it goes from 5:30-9:30. I normally eat dinner around 7/7:30 and I'm kind of at a loss - if I wait until the end I'll be starving (and probably unable to concentrate on the second half of the class), and there's no way I'll be hungry at 4:30 before I leave. I don't want to eat in the middle of class because I'm sure it'll be rude and disruptive, and I don't really like snacking.
So, what would you do for dinner? I'm passively trying to lose weight (as in, trying my best to be healthy and keep track of my calories while exercising, but not tracking it super actively or on any kind of prescribed diet). I'm thinking maybe I could get a smoothie to have on the way to class and then eat dinner when I get home? I really look forward to yummy dinners so idk what to do!
What would you do?
