Why is Night time so difficult?! The Spark Solution....

Friday, October 25, 2013

I have been I did very, very well! I had 1744 calories for the day and was done eating. Then...then, the evening munchies started. I didn't want to give in, but I did. I had Cheetos, Nutty Bar and two hot dogs wrapped in corn tortillas! Ugh! This put me way over.

So why did I do it?! I am stressed. That is no excuse. I think it's because I am so used to that. Plus, I was in front of the TV. I think I need to start eating my meals at the table so that way of eating in front of the TV will not feel right. Also, I need to change my evenings to not watch so much TV at night! I have tried this time and time again, yet I don't change the habit.

Starting tomorrow....there are 67 days left in the year. I am going to challenge myself to do the following each day...

1) Not eat in front of the TV
2) Really think about whether I am hungry or not BEFORE I eat
3) Stay within my calorie range (Below 1550).

I have been reading the Spark Solution and boy has that book been an eye opener for me! I was eating too many calories and too many snacks each day. It would have been virtually impossible to get below 1550 the way I was eating. I am going to get myself together tonight and come up with a menu for tomorrow, based on what we have in the fridge right now. I know it is doable...I just need to DO it!

Self...this is going on 26 years of battling your weight.

It is time to stop.
