ok, so my cardio fitness is excellent. I outrun people in their 20s in great shape. But I’m still overweight. I’m at 170lbs now. After I lost 35 pounds, I keep gaining and losing 10. This is because even though I put in approx 5 miles daily, I eat like a pig at night.
I eat very well during the day, but at night, when kids are put to bed and I can finally breathe, I plop myself down, watch my dvr shows and eat cake, cookies, chips, whatever I can find that I shouldn’t eat plus a couple glasses of wine. It’s my way of soothing myself before sleep.
So today I have resolved to STOP it. I refuse to fail at this just because I have a sugar and carb addiction. If I can control myself all day, then I need to do so at night, even though that’s when my defenses are down.
Tonight is night #1. I will just eat my sensible dinner, have some chamomile tea and MAKE myself go to sleep early. The plan is to do this fo 2 weeks, and then I’ll be off the cravings. This is how I did it last time, I just need to get back on the wagon. No more “I’ll start tomorrow”.
stay tuned. I’m sure I’ll get quite bitchy in a couple of days 🙂
