My #onesmallchange commitment for this past week was to avoid eating after 8 p.m. each evening. Most of the time, if I do eat/snack/munch/graze after dinner, it is not from physical hunger. It is from what I am hearing called hedonistic hunger… or even just from thirst, mistaken for hunger. Apparently not all that uncommon.
So, how did I do? Well I can honestly say that the only evening I ate after 8 p.m. was on Sunday. And it was from true, physical hunger. We had eaten dinner fairly early and it was a light meal so by 8 p.m. I was feeling a bit peckish and by 9 I was downright hungry. I ate a couple of slices of lean ham wrapped in Romaine lettuce and was quite satisfied… but a deal is a deal so I guess I only scored 6/7.
This week I will plan better!
And, in a addition to not eating after 8 p.m. I intend to make sure I drink more water. I have been really lax about getting in my H20 lately. Oh sure, I drink coffee and tea all day long, but I really think my body needs pure, unadulterated water.
So my #onesmallchange this week is to fill up a bottle or 2 each morning, measuring out 64 ounces of water… and then make sure I have drunk it all before going to bed each evening.
I have lots of great water bottles so I think I will use a different one each time to make sure have some variety and not get bored…..
