Why You Keep Overeating At Night

This week we're talking about the sneaky little lies that are keeping you overweight and how you can recognise and reverse them

Let's talk about reason #103 why you keep overeating at night... "banking calories".

"I haven't eaten all day so I DESERVE this"⁠
"I haven't eaten all day so I can AFFORD to eat this"⁠
"I haven't eaten all day so I can SPLURGE now"⁠

*insert whiney voice here*

Straight up, banking calories is not a thing. You can't "save now, spend later" when it comes to calories and what you eat. Your body needs sufficient calories all throughout the day so it can function efficiently. And if you don't give it those calories when it needs them, it will force you to eat tsunami-sized portions of food to compensate.

Straight up, banking calories is not a thing. You can't "save now, spend later" when it comes to calories and what you eat.

Here's what you should do instead:⁠

You might be busy with kids, meetings etc, but it only takes a moment to check-in and see how you're feeling.⁠

This is not rocket science. What do you feel like eating at that moment? Honour your body's needs. It's here to support you for the long haul. Respect that.⁠

You don't have to bank calories or wait for a special occasion to eat the doughnut. If you want it, eat it and enjoy it. The doughnut does not mean you have "ruined" your eating or "failed". It's just a doughnut. Enjoy it for what it is and move the fu*k on.⁠

There is never going to be a "right time" to deal with your emotional eating. There is just time and you choose what to do with it.⁠⁠
It won't be easier tomorrow.⁠⁠
It won't be easier next week.⁠⁠
And it definitely won't be easier next month.⁠⁠
I want to be clear, you can't (and won't) do it before you're ready. That's okay, too. But you will need to push yourself *a little*.
Want a life and body that feels easy and not stressy?⁠ You gotta step up, girl.

It's not going to feel good, but that's what growing and becoming an even more amazing wife/mother/partner/woman looks like!
STEP 1 - What are you willing to DO to make your relationship with food (or anything) the way you want it?⁠⁠
STEP 2 - What are you willing to STOP doing to have things the way you want it?⁠⁠
STEP 3 - How can you do what's necessary to get the job done AND enjoy the process? (and p.s. there are a million options here)⁠⁠
Remember, the feelings you get from eating when you're not hungry are only a temporary escape. Changing your relationship with yourself lasts a lifetime.

What you do today, determines your tomorrow’s



Or should I say, what you EAT today, determines how you feel about yourself tomorrow.

If what they say is true, that you are the sum of what you repeatedly do, then I guess it makes sense that my butt kinda resembles a Betty Crocker pancake. Lord knows, I’ve eaten enough of them in my life to have earned it.

But when you’re done with the Sunday night choc-fest and the Monday morning “fresh starts”, how do you create new habits? You know, ones that will actually stick? 


If the “how to” of habit creation has you in a tail spin, then today is your lucky day!

Watch today’s episode to get my fail proof system for creating habits that stick like (oddly delicious) burnt toffee

Keep Yo Eye On The WHY

Yeah, yeah.. you’ve heard it all before. Know your WHY. You can’t succeed unless you know WHY you want it. And sure, it’s true. But what they don’t tell you to to connect your WHY with something you’re passionate about. Just saying you want to lose weight is great (see what I did there? How I made that rhyme?) until you come face to face with a tub of ice cream and then you’re fancy WHY crumbles like the broken cookies that you’re sprinkling on your ice cream. Give your WHY some oomph! Connect it with something you really care about. Think of your children, your family, your career… how can you give your WHY so much emotion, that the thought of eloping with Ben & Jerry becomes a hazy, chocolate coated memory?

Examine Your Sitch 

Want in on the 3 key questions to your long term success?  Well, good thing for you I’ve recorded them below for you! Before you even attempt to create a life over-haul, look at what you already have going on and assess:

  1. What do you need to START doing?
  2. What do you need to STOP doing?
  3. What do you need to KEEP doing?

And then, Implement your Plan and Assess the Progress, man. Measure your results. If things aren’t working for you, check out why? Have you over committed yourself? Tried to change too much, too fast? It’s important to go at your own pace. This is not a competition. This is your life. Creating new habits is about making your life and your body and your relationship with food more comfortable, not so prickly that you want to roll around naked in Doritos.


What’s the No. 1 habit you want to create or eliminate?

Shout it out in the comments below and then…

Share this with your bestie because it’s funner than rolling around, naked, in Doritos.

Big Love!
