Not so proud of myself.....

*stands up, gives a wave*
"Hi my name is Ani, and I'm an emotional/BORED eater."

So I had a great day in nutrition yesterday (Not so much in fitness, but thats another blog story). Made it through the whole day out having to really stress about calorie intake. Went to bed like normal, woke up 2 hrs later and ate for no reason. Wasn't hungry. Just ate 2 slices of whole wheat white bread with cinnamon and sugar and went back to bed. Another 2 hours later it happens again. I eat not 1 but 2 100 calorie packs of Lorna Doones. Again not hungry just eating, just because I guess, and went back to bed.

This is not the first time. I wish I could say I knew for sure it would be my last. I've gotten a little bit better during the day not to snack or eat when bored. Its the night that gets me. It doesn't matter if I fill up right before bed, at some point during the night during one of the MANY times I wake up I'm gonna eat. I've done the smart thing, I've gotten all the "bad" snack food out of my house. BUT even the low-cal stuff adds up when your eating extras almost nightly.

So my question to YOU the reader....
Are you like me and eat during the middle of the night? What steps are you taking that I might not have tried?
Are you a former night snacker? How did you break the habit? At this moment quitting smoking seems easier....

Stay POSITIVE (even when I'm not)

    You are not alone. I use to get up at 2am, make about 1lb of pasta, with butter and cheese, eat it, clean up and go back to bed, no one the wiser. I also could polish off a whole box of wheat thins sitting in bed reading before sleep. I can say I have truly broken this pattern. I sip sugar free hot cocoa after dinner and if I wake during the night with the urge to eat, I log on to SP. I find so much inspiration and motivation here. You can too. You are definately heading in the right direction!
