Well... that pesky nighttime eating is not getting better. I've had a spark streak of 4 days of too much and junky eating at night.
SO... what happened on sparkcoach today? A discussion of spark streaks!
I'd already decided to remove any trigger foods from the house (not an issue - there are really only two of them) but I like the spark streak so much better! I do have one going for log-ins and I know I have a great one for tracking EVERYTHING, and even though the software doesn't work for it, I've got a great one for drinking water (I am talking about the software because occasionally I've logged the rest of my water the next morning, and even though I put it into the right day, I don't seem to get spark streak credit for it. Not a big deal.
But now... the most challenging spark streak for me of all: ONE snack per evening. I have a list of healthy snacks on the fridge. A "snack" will be defined as between 100 and 200 calories (I know it should be between 100 and 150 - maybe that will be my next streak). Night eating is my nemesis. And this is a big week for emotional eating - my last day of teaching was yesterday, my son is coming home from college, folks are coming to finally haul many of my mom's and dad's things away (FINALLY) and I have to go through a lot of things ahead of time, and am finding out things about them that are bringing up hard memories or are things I wish I hadn't known. Oh, well, that's life, right? The GOOD things? I get to start my new work adventure and I LOVED teaching! My son is coming home from college! I'll be free of all of those objects! The behaviors of my parents were long ago and I have a FABULOUS family now!
Well, that put a smile on my face.
Hope you're all having a wonderful day!
