It would be like painting a beautiful painting and then stepping on it at night

Tuesday, January 15, 2013

I also have a hard time not snacking at night. I do find that when I am working so hard all day to be healthy and feeling so good because I am succeeding. Then I don't want to spoil it at night.

If I really am hungry at night I will stick a lean cuisine in the microwave, that usually makes me feel much better about myself, having stayed away from junk food. Knowing I add protein and vitamins and not to many calories.

The more i use the nutrition tracker and work at meeting the nutritional needs from the daily feedback the less I want to hurt it at night.

It would be like painting a beautiful painting and then stepping on it at night.
It would be like sowing a costume and throwing it away at night.

Please add it would be like............

    The fabulous thing about a painting is that you can tweak it and change it as often as you want to and still its a beautiful masterpiece. Its great your not wanting to step on your painting but remember its okay to add an extra brush stroke every once in awhile because you can always paint over it until its fixed.

    Love your blog and I too don't like sabatoging my entire day with an "extra brush stroke" in the evening. Best of luck!!!

    I know a lot of people will say you shouldn't eat at night, but I think your LC meal is a good idea. As long as you are allowing for it in your daily nutrition intake, nothing wrong with healthy foods. I have a small bowl of wholegrain cereal every night before bed: it keeps me from getting hungry before breakfast, and helps keep me from giving in to cravings in the evenings.

    Some people can make supper their last meal of the day and be fine with that until the following morning. If you aren't one of those people (I'm surely not, lol) then work up a meal plan that allows for the late-night light meal, or snack, or whatever will keep you from feeling ravenous.

    Your body is no more apt to hang onto nighttime calories than it is to hang onto daytime calories. It will only cling to the extra calories when you are above your daily allowance.

    emoticon Like spending WEEKS building a Ship from Popsicle Sticks, then filling it full of Firecrackers and setting them off!! My Father did that when I was a Kid, and I could NOT understand it Then or Now!!

    Or like Penelope -- embroidering during the day and picking it out at night. Except that her goal was to accomplish nothing so she had a good reason for it.

    I think about it like organizing the playroom and then letting the kids back in to throw all the neat boxes up in the air to scatter all over again. Oh wait, that's what actually happens all the time at my house.

    Like sweeping the kitchen floor and then feeding the kids a snack -- no, that happens too!

    Hm. Organizing the pot cabinet? (Would you have guessed that the stock pot was used more often as a drum than a pot and the lid is almost always pressed into service as a shield?) Changing a diaper? My husband's pet peeve is when we dress the baby before breakfast. What's the point?

    That would be like fowling your drinking water.
