I just plain eat too much.
Too much fat, too many calories. And all after 5 p.m.
This isn't really new information to me. I've known it for quite some time. I'm just not sure how to stop it. I tell myself, "just do it". But, its as if my mind just draws the curtains and turns the other way as my body takes over and eats...and eats...and eats.
It seems as if I've tried all the recommendations for ending evening eating, but maybe its time to go back to working my way down that list:
Do some yoga, go for a walk, lift some weights, read a book, find a hobby, drink some water, read an SP article, etc.
I've been practicing self centering myself several times during the day. On breathing in, breathing out, and on bringing my wildly ranging thoughts to an inner focus. I think its time to practice that several times tonight as well. Sit quiet and meditate.
My menu is planned, my cupboards are stocked with healthy foods, and I have the information I need. I, indeed, just need to "do it".
Spark on friends.
