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.
Here's what you should do instead:
1. LISTEN TO YOUR BODY.
You might be busy with kids, meetings etc, but it only takes a moment to check-in and see how you're feeling.
2. IF YOU'RE HUNGRY, E.A.T!!
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.
3. YOU DESERVE TO EAT WHAT YOU ENJOY.
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.

It’s time to stop being such a DIVA
& just go for what you want!!
That life, the one where you have it all?
It’s not just for SOME people…
It’s not just for the rich, skinny, famous people.
That life is for EVERYBODY.
It’s for YOU.
But you have to want it.
You have DECIDE you DESERVE it.
You have to GO FOR IT.
Because it wont just land on you.
You have to TAKE ACTION.
Which you will never do as long as you continue to fool yourself into thinking that “starting again next Monday” is taking action.
Because I can tell you, it’s not.
Procrastinating is not action.
Excuses are not action.
Waiting for the perfect time is NOT ACTION.
Or maybe it is… it’s IN-ACTION (which is possibly an action within itself)
And every action brings its own rewards.
Whatever you put out will return to you multiplied.
Shooting for the stars will bring you the desires of your heart.
Indecision, procrastination, excuses will bring you suffering.
Your choices will always bring a result.
It just might not necessarily be one that you want.
So, what DO you want?
Because if you want what you SAY you want, then you need to step up your game.
YES, what you have achieved so far is amazing and
YES, you have made incredible progress.
You haven’t REALLY given it your all, have you?
You haven’t REALLY thrown yourself into it.
All in. No plan B.
Stop being such a DIVA & go for what you want!!
So, let’s look at this again…
What do you REALLY want?
Because if what you want is FREEDOM and RELAXATION around food, I honour you.
If you’re ready to push past the FOOD FEAR, I’m cheering for you.
Because you DO have what it takes.
You always have.
The only person who didn’t realise it, was you.
Pssst… if you’re ready to up-level the progress (err, or lack of progress) you are making with your weight loss or your relationship with food, I am opening the doors to my Elite 1:1 Private Coaching.
DISCLAIMER: This is NOT for everybody. This is for you if:
* You KNOW you were born for more than the constant daily WAR ZONE between you and the refrigerator.
* You KNOW you are ready to quit losing and gaining the same 5, 10 or 50 kilos year after year after year.
* You KNOW you want this WEIGHT, the OBSESSION, the FRUSTRATION, the GUILT and CONSTANT DIETING GONE FROM YOUR LIFE FOR GOOD…
THEN LET ME KNOW.
I’m opening up 3 places for private Coaching.
If one of them should be yours, message me and tell me why.
The life you want is now a click away🙌🏼✨
Sending you all big love!
