Okay, so I have a problem, and it’s kind of hard for me to talk about.
I tried once…
Let me go back to when I was pregnant. I was young. After losing a bunch of weight in high school I never really had to worry about what I ate. When I got pregnant I wasn’t exactly eating healthy all the time. And then I started doing this thing. I would wake up in the middle of the night and go and eat a cookie, or a spoonful of ice cream, or a piece of candy. I don’t know why I started doing this. I just chalked it down to one of those pregnancy things.
So after Justine was born, I figured all these quirky things I was doing would end until one morning I woke up with a half eaten granola bar in my hand. *Shaking my head* Go ahead and laugh. 🙂 I called my friend and was telling her about it, hoping she would give me some advice, but instead she laughed at me, and still laughs at me when we get together and she brings it up. She was the last person I told.
So now 8 years later… I still do it. I still get up in the middle of the night to get a little treat to eat. I don’t know why I do it. I don’t know how to stop. I’m not alert enough in the middle of my sleep to stop myself from eating something. I wake up in the morning and get upset when I realize what I have done. It’s not every night, but lately it has been getting a little more frequent. Am I crazy? Is there something wrong with me? Has anyone else had this problem?
I’ve wanted to write this post for a while now, but honestly I am embarrassed. I can laugh at myself too. It’s one of those things that you say out loud and then giggle before anyone else laughs, so you can be the first one to laugh at yourself. Anywho… if you have any suggestions on how I can stop this nonsense I would GREATLY appreciate it.
And now onto the eats…
I bet you can’t guess what I had for breakfast….
I changed it up a little this morning. In my green monster I had 2 cups spinach, 1 cup Vanilla Rice milk, 1/2 banana, 1/2 cup blueberries, and 1 tbs white chocolate macadamia butter. Yum!
My snacks consisted of
Lunch was a big mexican salad… in the bowl went 3 cups romaine, 1/4 cup shredded cheese, 1/2 cup Trader Joe’s cuban style black beans, tomatoes, onions, Wholly Guacamole, and a little salsa. Yumm-o! Afterwards I was really craving something sweet, so I thought I would try drinking a little hot chocolate (made with water) to see if that would satisfy my sweet tooth. And you know what it did the trick!
Dinner… leftover pizza, but that’s the end of it.
And I might make me some banana soft serve, but I haven’t decided on that yet.
45 minutes on the treadmill!
Today was a good day!
