Would love to join all of you in your posts. I lost 30lbs last year and I could use a little support. I have gained 10 of it back and I need to re-commit. Evenings are my tough time. Any tips would be appreciated. I think part of the problem is I'm tired. I am 53 and sleep and I are not the best of friends these days. I think I eat at night because I need to go to bed but I feel bad about saying goodnight to my husband when he just gets home at 7:30. Truthfully, though-- I really need to get in bed most nights by 9 so that I can get up early to workout before work. Any suggestions for a evening routine that will encourage a restful sleep? Does anybody else struggle with this? Oh Here are my stats.
Goals this week are
1. Post in forum daily
2. Log everything I eat
3. 64oz water daily (16oz with each meal--and one at work)
4. No eating "after" dinner
5. 6 workouts a week

Really committed in August
Stayed that way until torn meniscus end of May
Yoga is a wonderful way to wind down or a walk. Ligh stretching yoga as opposed to a sweat inducing routine. I have the opposite problem myself, I go to bed early and snap awake too early. Usually in bed at 9 or so but if I go to bed at 8 I am up at 3am. I just go running when I am already up that early.
The secret is really to have a winding down routine, yoga/stretching, breathing exercises, warm bath, no caffeine later than noon. No screen time. Yep I am full of suggestions, I fall asleep in less than 30 secs.
