Yesterday’s healthy step was to stop eating by 8:30 pm. I am proud to say that I made it! It was close, though, because we didn’t start dinner until pretty late but I did make it. I know, I know… it is only one night but that is just it. It was only one night and now I feel like I have accomplished something and I am ready to try again!
Part of the reason for setting daily goals is to help me move away from the all or nothing approach that I typically take. If I set a weekly goal and have a slip up on Monday… I don’t want to ruin the entire week because of one set back. The daily goals allow me to gain more successes more quickly and don’t sabotage a week or month if I don’t hit them.
Anyway, it is Friday and I typically struggle a lot on the weekends because I have so much more free time. I like to stay up later at night watching TV and, of course, I end up snacking so that I have the energy to stay up! Not really what I should be doing as I typically end up overeating. So, my healthy step for today will be to stop eating by 9:00 pm tonight. Yes, this is 30 minutes later than last night but we have a few errands to run and after cutting it REALLY close last night, I’d rather give myself a bit more room so that I don’t feel like I need to eat really quickly.
Who’s going to join me? Do you have a healthy step to take today?
