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.

Stop The Self Sabotage

When did you give YOURSELF permission to CHECK OUT of your own life?

* When did you give yourself permission to GIVE UP on your WEIGHT?
* Your BODY?
* Your God-given right to LOOK, FEEL & BE your absolute FREAKIN BEST?


What part of your incredibly intelligent feminine brain decided that it was okay for you to sit back.
And do nothing.
Until motivation magically strikes and you FINALLY get off your (albeit sexy, but still expanding) ass and DO WHAT IT TAKES to get the job done?

You KNOW you want to lose weight.
You FEEL it in every fibre of your Soul.
You KNOW you will feel better.
Perform better.
And all that is without the boring AF data the medical industry shoves down your throat about improved sleep, sex drive and all the other “duh, of course” things that come with you looking and feeling your best.

But here you are still making excuses, amiright?
Bargaining with yourself.
Just one more day. Week. Month.
I can’t start now because there’s still junk food in the house and God knows I can’t waste money?!

And so you continue to wait for just the right time.
The right time… for what, exactly?
To be YOU?


And if you don’t wake up and start ACTING like there isn’t an infinite amount of time at your disposal then eventually time will, in fact, run out.

Whether that’s an age thing or a doctors diagnosis thing, eventually time and your luck will run out and then all your good intentions will mean NOTHING because your window of opportunity has now SHUT.

And there you’ll be… shaking your head wondering how this happened to YOU?
You had such plans.
You were going to be fit. Strong. Healthy. Empowered.
You were going to create and command self-respect.
Be an example.
Achieve goals.

But here you are.
Still waiting for the perfect time to “start”.

There is no right time to start because it already began the day you were born.
Wheels are already in motion.
And the clock is ticking.

What To Do?

If you’re ready to step up then the time IS now.
