my challenge was to not snack so much at night.
i am actually making great strides in this probelm. someone had suggested to have a string cheese before bed. so right before bed, i have a string cheese and i lay a bag of grapes out. last night, i came in the kitchen several times, and acually snacked on the grapes. and do you know what my husband had the nerve to do? he layed out half bag of girl scout peanut butter cookies. he layed them right by my grapes. was he trying to help or doing it as a joke? i dont know, but it really ticked me off and gave me more determination to not eat them.. i actually wanted to prove a point to him. i did not eat one single cookie
do i need more advice or motivation? i can always use extra motivation and help.
good evening to everyone.

my spark challenge is to eat every 3-4 hrs. and record how i liked it.
i normally do this all the time. i just get too hungry if i wait longer. what i am finding that is working for me is to much on carrots, celery, cup up apple, or grapes. i work afternoons. i take a combination with me to work in a baggie. between 2:30 and 6:30, i munch on them and it is working out quite nicely,
what i need to do, and i will chanllenge myself to do this, is to follow the same routine on my days off. usually my day off is a disaster. going out to eat and munching on all kinds of things.
so this `is my challenge to follow this same tactic on my days off

well today, i have done nothing. no excercise, not a good day of eating, but i am paying for it now. i am just having a lot of stomache problems and feel yucky. but i am not giving up. this is a journey and i will have days like this.
so in general, what am i doing to encourage myself?
i did not buy any granola bars or low fat ice cream to snack on after work. instead, i will sop at speedway or sheetz. they have healthy snacks and i will buy 1 serving so that way i will not go crazy eating too much somewhat healthy stuff.
the peanut butter is still here, which is my weekness. my husband said he would hide it, but i am trying to just restarin myself and be strong.
i am looking at the big picture and how i want to look and feel. i started the beck diet solution book. i downloaded an app on my phone for flashcards. this is step one of the book. it is to make flashcards for the reasons you want to lose weight. i am still at the beginning of the book, but we will see how it plays out.
good luck to all my spark friends.
