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.

Question Of The Day:

How to be authentic AND stop eating so much chocolate?


It’s no secret I like chocolate.

Do I wish I liked it a little less? Uh, is Usher’s rendition of the alphabet one of the sexiest things you’ve ever seen? YEAH!

So finding a way to be authentically me while not hiding my food challenges from the people around me was a constant struggle… until now.

This week I decided no more hiding. No more pretending to be who someone else wants me to be. I am what and who I am.

Does that mean I don’t want to improve or learn or grow? No. Not at all. But it DOES mean that as I’m busting a move on the dance floor of my own life, I don’t apologise for my existence by wrapping myself in a Snickers wrapper and pretending I’m someone I’m not.


So who do you want to be?
Do you want to be who you think you should be or who you actually are?


I spent most of my life trying to get people to like me and even more recently I found myself doing it again.

What should I post that will get the most likes? What can I say that will stop people unfollowing? But the truth is people will do what they’re going to do. And they SHOULD. Just as you need to do what makes YOU happy. Not what makes SOMEONE ELSE happy


I’ve decided that being authentically me means 5 things:

💜Sometimes I like my body and sometimes I (kinda still) don’t

💜If I binge it’s natural to feel down but it’s NOT natural to stay there

💜I still get mad when I feel full but there’s still food on my plate

💜I tell people I love them even if it makes them uncomfortable

💜If I ever meet the owner of the Cadbury’s empire, I will shamelessly flirt with him until I get free chocolate 


For you to be authentically YOU, it takes these 5 things:

💜Live your life in a way that makes you happy

💜Accept there will always be parts of your body you wish were different and stop trying to change them.

💜Be okay with yourself if you binge. You are not a monster. Now move on. 

💜Love more. Laugh harder. Eat what you really want no matter what anyone else thinks and eat it in amounts you feel good about.

💜Trust that the people who are meant to be in your life will stay and the wrong ones will leave


It’s time to set yourself free to be who YOU were born to be.

Stop trying to be a carbon copy of someone else.

And if you don’t like what I’m saying, that’s okay. You can stop reading now (I pinky promise I won’t stalk you or use my leprechaun powers of persuasion to lure you back) 

But if you DO like this, then do your thing and do it YOUR way (because really, what other way can you do it?)

What does it mean to be authentically YOU?

  1. I love, love, LOVE this! Too often, we are hiding or sneaking around, worrying about what others will think but this needs to stop. If we are not being our authentic selves, then whats the point?!?!

    1. Hey gorgeous Buffy!
      Thank you so much for your lovely comments! And you are so right, sneaky living is like sneaky eating… neither one are much fun. It’s time to live out loud!
