The Last Hurdle: Goal week 4
Tomorrow starts the last week of goal rush. I made it through Halloween without eating all the kids candy. But I am really struggling with one of my goals. Late night snacking. This past week, I have been going over the final proofreads of the book before it comes out in January. With two little girls, about the only time I have to do it is late at night. I keep reaching for the life cereal, or a pita with some hummus. Not terrible food for me, but extra stuff that my body doesn't need.
What is it that makes us eat late? Lower inhibitions as the night wears on? Or boredom? Stress?
Don't know. But it's like a bad one night stand (not that I'd know anything about it personally), I wake up in the morning roll over and find the evidence of last night's indiscretion. The paper plate on the floor, the bright shiny wrapper - whatever - it all builds up to a big guilt sandwich for breakfast.
With one week left of goal rush, I'm recommitting myself. I'm going to make it through this week without any errant snacking.
Are you struggling with any of your goals?
