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
5' 4" female

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.

I'm joining the ranks of those suffering from the pollen allergies-- but minus the sore throat.

But at least I don't have a headache--just pressure, so I'll count my blessings nonetheless.

I'll do as much exercise (up to 30 minutes) as I can do and will eat on plan.

Breakfast: turkey sausage, zero cholesterol egg substitute on a low carb tortilla
Snack: protein shake
Lunch: tuna salad on bed of fresh spinach
Snack: unsalted almonds
Dinner: casserole of baked chicken, low carb pasta and low carb roasted red pepper sauce, green beans, sugar free jello with fruit
Evening snack--don't know yet--something low carb and high protein
As we all know,While the mobile phone brings great conveniences to people, it also raises new challenge on the security of confidential work. In recent years, the wiretap, cheating in examination, medical negligence and gas station explosion with mobile phone occurred and it has aroused great concern of the society. Maybe it's one of the reasons that promoted the appearance of phone blocker.You may be watching a nice movie or enjoying your nap when you get free for sometime. Still you have chances of getting disturbed with your most loved ones and close friend chatting near you on the cell phone. At such hours, if you really care for your free time then you need to buy a phone blocker.
