Failure Inspires Winners

Yesterday I nailed it. I drank over 120 oz. of water and was perfectly within calories, that is, until about 10 p.m. 

Real talk: I've been here before. I know that I just need to go to sleep to prevent myself from eating what basically ended up being a "second dinner". My body was mistaking my tiredness for hunger and I sought comfort in food instead of my bed. 

I know what I need to do next time {because there's always a next time}. I just need to take the right steps toward the stairs instead of toward the kitchen. I need to stop thinking that staying up late, watching Netflix or Hulu is going to satisfy me more than getting some extra rest. The extra sleep will not only keep me out of the kitchen, but the sleep itself will help my body lose weight, too. It's a win win. 

The only thing that I feel like I'm missing out on by going to sleep at a decent time is hanging out with my husband. I'm not watching Netflix or Hulu alone on the couch; he's there with me and it's the best. There just never seems like there's enough hours in the day. The hours after Piper has gone to bed is our time to be Nick and Kalyn. We love that time together. I think if we bring back date nights {it's been a few weeks since we've done a date night} that should help.

I know this has been a lot of rambling but, I needed to get it all out there so I could move on and start out fresh today.

My goals for today are to drink 120 oz. of water, stay within calories, and to go to bed before 10 p.m. Readers, what are your goals for today?

  1. Do you do my fitness pal? My goal today is to stay in my calorie range, and no food after 7:00 pm
