POA is "plan of action". :o)

How did you do last night? I stuck to my guns, but
I made the mistake of having a sugar free, caffeine free mocha vienna cafe before bed.
Caffeine free, my rear end! I didn't sleep until like 3am!

Going to bed earlier tonight to make up for it, and still on a good roll today.
Maybe a hot bubble bath tonight would be good! I take those during the summer too...
I have to work after 6pm,so I'll be occupied, and I'm going to make some cucumber soup before then for dinner. Yum!
Now, I'm off to bike ride for an hour. :o)

Hey there everyone!

This next thread is devoted to instituting an eating cutoff time at night, for all those who are interested in following with me. I still continue to remove sugars, add protein, and food journal (to some extent...although I generally hate that part it is illuminating!). But, one of the single most impactful things I've ever done is the food cut-off time.

I've never naturally been an early bird. I could sleep in until noon if someone let me, and I am generally very prone to staying up late and eating late. Now, before I educated myself a little on sleep cycles, I always just thought it was a bad idea to eat later because of the extra calories and your body being less active. Actually, ...it turns out that eating at night is terrible for one's SLEEP cycle. Digesting heavy meals pushes your REM cycle out, resulting in a sluggish morning and oversleeping for alot of folks such as myself. This sluggishness can lead to...you guessed it...what I like to call "fatigue grazing". We are all different, but if this sounds like you, it might be time to institute a new routine.

Creating a new routine isn't always easy. Come 4pm all I want to do is backstroke in delicious food to unwind from the day and enjoy my time home from work. It's amazing how strong this tractor beam can be, and then that behavior doesn't get changed! So, my POA is to have:

1. An eating cuttoff time of 6:30pm, with a planned bedtime of 10pm.
2. 5 activities in mind that I will do INSTEAD of eating another snack or meal!
3. Commit to doing those activities first thing after my evening dinner.

When trying to lose weight, letting yourself go to bed on a mildly empty stomach can be effective by itself...even without all the journalling, exercising, etc.! I know, because I"ve done it before.

WHAT WOULD YOUR POA BE FOR THIS WEEK?
