Ok newbie here, but I know fruits and veggies are a problem for me.
Late nite snacking is a to do on my list but with rules. I check what areas I have not met my goals in, usually protein and lately carbs as well. So I find snacks that fit in the areas that aren't up to snuff and that usually means some fruits and veggies too. I am only allowed to eat the things that go towards that goal. Sometimes I even lose my hunger pangs trying to figure it out.
Also I put the stuff I want to eat but shouldn't way in the back on a skinny shelf. You know the one that is a pain to get anything from. But up front is all the good stuff. It sounds silly but it really works, for some reason those night snacks just aren't worth the effort to dig.
I also know that I don't do as well, If I don't have a challenge, something that makes me work a little. Too much work, I give up, too little I get bored and don't bother. I made up some personal challenges for myself that I put on my tracker. I am then accountable at least to myself to make sure there are no empty boxes on my other goals. I am also accountable to a team and I can't let them down just because I had a lousy week. It gets me going again.
But I have to have new ones about every 2 or 3 months or I get bored.
Oh if I find myself not doing them or it becoming a real hassle, I opt out and get new challenges and/or go back later. My mind needs that and it keeps my body on its toes as well.

The saddest thing of all my friend, what might have been.
I am not in this world to live up to your expectations or you to mine.
Lead, follow or get out of the way, but do SOMETHING!
