Goals & Gratitude 6/11/19

Tuesday, June 11, 2019

Well, I haven't done too well with IF so far. I made it last night from 9 PM until midnight and then I was just famished and gave in. I think if I was actually able to sleep at night, I would just sleep through my hunger and not notice. But because it's so hard for me to sleep, especially when I'm hungry, I just end up eating. I fell asleep right after I ate because I had a nice full belly. I decided today to eat a bigger lunch in the hopes that I'll stay fuller later tonight. I'm going to have dinner in a little while, though I'm not really hungry, because I have to eat something with my medication. I don't really know what to do. If I have nothing really to eat, then I won't, but that's not realistic because I have to keep some food around. I decided to make an appointment with a dietitian through my HMO but that's not for another month. I keep gaining weight when all I want to do is lose it. I'm so frustrated. But it's hard to convince myself not to eat when it's late and I'm so hungry. Any advice anyone has would be great.

Besides that, today was good. I went to the gym for 45 minutes. Then I came home and did homework. I got the rest of my Cost Accounting homework done and I did the last quiz. Now all I have to do is study for the final. I'm waiting for my professor to let us see the answers to the quizzes we did. He was supposed to open them up last week but never did. I'm going to start reviewing the PowerPoints and re-reading some of the chapters tomorrow. But I really need to review the quizzes to get ready. I'm hoping that I can take the final on Thursday. I have plans for Friday, so I really want to get it done.

Tomorrow's Goals:
1) Review for the final exam.
2) Do the dishes.
3) Do the laundry.
4) Exercise.

Today I'm Grateful For...
1) That I didn't get hurt when I went flying off the treadmill at the gym today.
2) That I'm done with all the assignments for my last class.
3) That I get a free session with a trainer at the gym. I haven't set it up yet, though.

    Good luck with the exam. I am a CPA so I know it's very detailed.

    I wake up a lot too! I know you want to try IF but my suggestion about the rice cakes has changed my life. They have so many flavors too. With a big glass of something calorie free and chewed up really well that 45-60 cals goes far! Keep sum in case?

    My advice is to eat a good meal at around 5 pm with adequate protein, a low glycemic carb, and a piece of fruit. A couple of hours before bed time have a predominately protein snack like peanut butter stuffed celery. Go to bed at the same time every night. Reduce the lights in the evening. Read for an hour before bedtime - No phone, no T.V., no computer.

    I wish I knew something to help. I don't eat after 6pm because of acid reflux.

    Do you drink first at night before you eat? Often I am just thirsty and a big glass of ice water makes me happy.
