Last night was a no snack night....no problem there, Larry made the delicious potatoes, and we had steak and salmon along with a giant salad. Needless to say I was stuffed after all that!

And it was New Year's Eve! But we just stayed in, watched a little TV, and I think I was so tired I started falling asleep around 8, so I headed off to bed even earlier than usual! The head cold I have come down with hit full force yesterday (I believe I mentioned this in yesterday's blog, so I'll skip the details), suffice it to say I was (am) tired! But the symptoms (so far) are confined to my head...and I'm hoping it doesn't go any farther than that. emoticon I am drinking buckets of hot tea, and that seems to help.

We were woken up by loud booming in the middle of the night, I guess Reno went all out with the NYE fireworks. While we have a nice view of lots of the city from our house, we don't have a good view of that, so I didn't even bother to get up and try to see them. Plus it's still really cold out!

We're supposed to get out skiing today....I'm going to see how I feel. I'd really like to get out, especially since the last time was so great, but with these symptoms, I'm not sure how well I'd do. I guess I'll just see how I feel when the time comes, and in the meantime keep drinking the tea! emoticon

So this is the end of my no night noshing challenge. I think I know I can regulate the snacking, and also know I can manipulate the system once I get it down....but also that once I feel stuffed it's time to stop eating! I will continue to work on that, I think for January my new goal will be to get back to knitting after dinner, I would like to get back to that project (and start more with the tons of yarn I have!) and keep my hands busy after dinner too. I would like to be more mindful when I'm eating of my satiety levels, I tend to be a "clean-plater" so will typically finish whatever is put in front of me, hungry or not! This is something I can work on. I think part of it is not wanting to waste food. But I can gauge my hunger level and look at what is served, and decide if it's a good amount or not. I think part of it is Larry does the serving, and while he is good about asking how much I want when it comes to pasta or rice, he tends to pile it on for the salads, and lately that is what is getting me to stuffed! I know, salad! emoticon emoticon But I'm an adult, I can put aside some of the salad for another meal, or add more later if I'm not full. I know what I need to do, it's just getting my butt in gear to do it!
