The Struggle is Real | Eating at Night

If I've said it once, I've said it a million times. I need to start going to bed earlier. Sound familiar to anyone? Maybe you know the struggle. When I stay up late at night, I struggle with late-night eating, which at times can account for a big chunk of my calorie intake for the day. 

Whenever I stay up late, I often confuse being hungry with being tired. Well, this is a reminder for myself and maybe it will help you, too. When it comes to eating past 7 p.m., it is time to question - am I hungry or am I tired? This is a question I'll be asking myself more often, especially going into the weekend.

If I'm being completely honest with myself, night snacking wasn't the only thing holding me back from losing weight. Throughout the past month, I have not been making the best choices in the daytime, either. I've been using the excuse of "it's summer!" a lot lately. Weddings, picnics, events that only come once a year. I've been finding all of the excuses.

Sometimes I'm in the mindset to eat healthy and other times I'm not. That's just life. I feel like I was not in the right mindset to lose weight last month, especially during my summer break, but I also feel like I'm coming back around. This week especially!

Despite it all, I haven't given up on myself. I remain on this weight-loss journey, through the high's and low's. That's the key to success - no matter how long it takes. Never give up.
