It's almost end of March (already!), and time to look over how I did with "no night eating."
Before I say "lousy," I have to consider that it's truly a lifelong behavior. So to expect it to change in a month is unrealistic for me.
Mid-month, I reassessed no night eating and changed it to "only light snack" being just a small veggie or similar other item. Okay, that didn't work either. But what I feel is progress for March is that I've established a keen awareness of my nocturnal munching and that's pretty valuable when making changes.
So I'm going to carry over this goal into April, along with another HUGE humdinger (lifelong habit) - less salt. Again, to say no salt is simply setting myself up. Even less would be like none considering the way I've used it all my life. Let's just say I love pickles in addition to adding salt to food.
April goals will be less night eating (small snack only) and less salt. Those are realistic goals and don't make me feel like a deprived little baby as it does if I say I can't have it at all.
Wishing all a good day.
(UPDATE: As I used salt today, I forgot to say that I use Morton's Light Salt which is a fraction of regular table salt. With that said, I don't use a lot of "normal" salt. Yes, less salt will be tougher than giving up sugar for me.)
