Good luck with this challenge.

Angie - That is ok!

Yvonne - Good suggestion with the brushing your teeth idea! Love it!

emoticon Jelaineb and Nina for passing the challenge last night.

I didn't quite make the deadline last night. I new I wouldn't but was prepared for it. It was my coffee night out with a few close girlfriends and due to the heat we didn't meet up until 8 and so we sat outside and I had a chai frappicino and gabbed until 11. I didn't go to bed until after midnight and I stopped eating/drinking by 9 so I still followed the stop eating two hours before bedtime but didn't meet the challenge but I am ok with that.
I know today I will as it is my last two days of my cleanse and they are fasting days so it won't be a problem tonight!

Good luck today ladies!

Well, I did a positively heroic feat last night. I had gotten only 6 hrs sleep the night before and was dead on my feet by 6 pm last night. All I wanted to do was lie down and quite frankly the floor would have feen a fine place to do it.

BUT with the baby and 3 year old and supper to fix and another potty training accident to clean up (and laundry to start before it gets smelly), of course I had to keep going. And of course hubby was working late so I had to do it all myself. That is the most dangerous circumstances for me and I easily could have munched my way through the whole evening.

But, I remembered the challenge and my goals and I ate supper and that was it. I made myself stay awake long enough to fold laundry, clean the kitchen, and start the dishwasher and went straight up to bed at 9, the earliest I could manage.

So, that's my big accomplishment! It may not sound like a lot but it took real focus and I'm proud of myself!

Stay strong Dawn and BestNewMe! Drink some water or go chew some gum. Actually, brushing your teeth may help - I rarely want to eat anything after my mouth tastes all spearimint-y!

It's 11:25pm I want something to snack on. It's just because my daughter and her cousin are munching out there. I'll be ok. I won't do it!

Well, first day in and I didn't end up eating dinner until 8:30. I got off work late and then waited for my boyfriend to get off work... Still, I won't be eating any snacks tonight, I did my cardio workout *after* I ate, and I'm still going to be active for another hour or two, cleaning up the house, so I don't think I did too bad today.

Cals: 1,615 / 1500 :(
Cardio: 300 cals, 30 min.
Last "snack": 8:30pm

Good luck to everyone else!

I work nights or evenings sorry and sometimes when I come home I am hungry cause I usually have my break around 6 so by the time I get home at 9:45 I am starved but I eat usually healthy. I was feeling down tonight cause I have been having problems with my stomach and binged on cookies. Will try harder tomorrow. Sorry ladies good luck to everyone else

Can I join in? I'd love to do this and really need to be kept accountable. One of my worst habits is watching a movie/TV and munching on popcorn or drinking a beer at night. I've done well so far this week, but I know temptation will come a'knockin...

I just saw this and wondered if it's too late to join? This is one of my biggest challenges and I have not gotten a handle on this one yet.

I would really like to be accountable for this one if you have room!

Hey all!

I don't think I want to be honest about yesterday's caloric intake but I will be:

no eating after 8 pm!!!
Calories: 2,126
no workout (hurt my back, so taking it SLOW)

UGH, you have no idea how I wanted to avoid it - that was the worst day in weeks. Oh, well... today was a much better day!

7/11/07 4:02 P


I find by having to write down and be accountable especially for the last time you are going to snack for the evening it makes it easier to stay out of the cupboards!

Good Luck and I am glad you found your way to our challenge.

Hi I'm in for tonight...Lastnight I didnt eat a thing after 8 pm, tonight if i get bored watching tv...I'll make a cup of vegetable broth or a cup of chamomile tea...think this is a good idea?

I'm in. This is definitely a challenge for me. Unfortunately, last night was the midnight show of HP so that meant a small popcorn at the theater. Generally, I just get bored because I have dinner at 5:30 or so and then by the the time bedtime rolls around 10 or 11, I need something to do with my hands. Maybe if I have a cup of tea that will help. Have a great day!

This is a great challenge for me! I tend to eat late to keep myself from falling asleep when I still have work to do.

So, one strategy is to hustle my behind from the minute I walk in the door - multitasking laundry, dinner, feeding the baby and cleaning up after the 3 year old. Many days I come home tired and I let it all get ahead of me, especially when we have 2 potty training accidents in the same hour!

But I do think that is my best bet, maintain momentum so I'm not sitting there at 10:30 still working, by then I'm so sleepy I'm on autopilot and it is hard not to munch.

oops, wrote down water intake instead of exercises...
cardio-----30 minutes (bicycling at the gym)
picked 4 gallons of boysenberries and 2 gallons of marion berries
went swimming in our creek's pool with grandkids for 11/2 hours (not sure how much time actually was swimming, though)...had a huge waterfight, which I lost.
trimmed blackberry canes along a fence and hauled to burning pile
and, washed and hung out 3 loads of clothes...busy day. And, I shouldn't gripe about this wonderful site that's free, but it sure would be nice to be able to add a lot of my activities ...when I put them in and click on search, it often says they can't add this exercise or some such...let me just say to the powers that be...picking 6 gallons of berries on a hot July day IS exercise!!!!Joy

All right ladies. I think we have a nice group to help motivate each other to stay out of the cupboards in the evening.

Lets start by checking in daily with the following:
-Daily Calorie total
-Exercise minutes (if any)
-Time of last snack for the day

If you are having urges in the evening feel free to post a HELP and anyone online will try to talk you out of it or at the very least into choosing a more healthy choice! LOL

By doing this you may be able to see a pattern to your evening snacking by either not eating enough through the day or too much of the wrong foods. Days you exercise and when you did will have an impact too.

By cutting out evening snacking we will all be on the road to "living our best life" in no time!

Good Luck to everyone! (and anyone now wishing to join our challenge please feel free)


7/10/07 2:28 P

Hi, all. I am definitly in for this challenge. My husband is gone during the week and after I put my daughter to bed the first place I seem to head for is the cupboard for something to snack on and don't quit until I go to bed. I think if I report back I will be doing better.

7/10/07 12:20 P

Hi evryone, hope you don't mind another addict! As my name states it all, I have a problem eating at night! I have just started not eating past 8pm so this is a great challenge. I will have a better chance if I am not alone. Thanks and good luck to all of you!

I make it a daily goal - I've been reading his book and it's such great advice to go along with everything that you learn on SP!

Count me in!!!

7/10/07 1:57 A

Bob Green (the Oprah Show - Best Life Diet) says it is important to stop all eating and drinking (except water) at least two hours prior to bedtime. Oprah said she sets a certain time as bedtime can fluctuate making easier to not follow the rule.

I have been following and challenging myself to not eat anything after 8pm since I started on SP because snacking while watching evening TV was my biggest weakness.

I have been successful and now want to challenge anyone else that has the nasty evening snacking habit to join me in this challenge. I also want this to be a support thread for helping others to not snack in the evening.

Good Luck!
