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:⁠

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.

Do You Suck At Weight Loss?

This Is Why…

LINE-NEW-MEDIUM- EVEN

 

You’ve made the decision.

Next Monday you’ll rise before the birds have tweeted their first tweet, work out like an Olympic athlete and stop eating chocolate coated cheesy fries for dinner.

But no sooner do you start, than the boss decides to treat you to a pizza lunch, or your landlord gives you chocolate covered custard pie and now all your plans are shot to pieces (insert desperate moan and pizza crumbs here)

 

When everything you’ve ever tried has fallen flatter than a Betty Crocker pancake, how to you make plans that stick?

Watch today’s episode to find out

 

The Best Bits

Stop Trying & Start Doing

How many times have you promised the overbearing mother-in-law that you’ll “try” to show up to the annual family BBQ? Did you go? NO! The word “try” is another way of saying you might give it a shot or maybe you kinda won’t, but at least you’ve given yourself an easy way out, right? When it comes to your choice of foods, quit “trying” to do better and roll naked in cheesecake when you can’t.  Just DECIDE that you are worth the effort it takes to overhaul your relationship with food. You can’t fail if you don’t stop.

 

You Can’t Fall Off The Wagon

That wagon that you keep insisting you fall off of? It’s called Life, and you CAN’T fall off. Thinking that we’ve “messed up” and “fallen off” some imaginary wagon just because you ate a cookie (or three or four) will keep you stuck in a never ending cycle of pain. This is life. Sometimes you win and sometimes you eat the cookie, but at all times your choices are fine. Sometimes a girl just needs a little sweetness to make it through the day, it does not mean that you should now go on a binge of biblical proportions and “start again” tomorrow. There are no bad days, only bad perspective.
