Are you not seeing the pattern? You eat too little during the day and then BAM 8PM hits and you are rummaging through the pantry like a starved rat.

Considering there will be an influx of chocolate this evening let’s be smart and make good choices during the day. Mmmmkay?

I’d love to hear your story or thoughts on mine.

However, to prevent the massive amounts of spam I was receiving I have turned off comments on any post older than 5 days old. If you'd like to leave me a note regarding this post or anything really try me on twitter (@RoniNoone,) my Facebook page, or even IG (@RoniNoone) I'm so sorry for the inconvenience. I never thought I'd have to do this but it's gotten way out of hand and comment management has become simply too time consuming to manage.

    Good call. Note to MYself: eat what it takes to not be hungry on the way home from work tonight. Healthy snacks prevent chocolate meltdowns.

    Thanks Roni! I’ve really been challenging myself lately to eat a healthy meal every 4 hours so I don’t have these meltdowns where I want everything that’s bad for me(especially this time of year). Happy Halloween!

    I continued a family tradition with my kids, one that all my sibs & I enjoyed (a genius plan formulated by my mother to keep her out of the trick or treat candy!) Here’s the deal – each kid gets a container big enough to hold all their candy. (In my day it was a coffee can – can you even buy coffee in a can anymore?) Each kid labeled their container & put it in their hiding place of choice. The contest was to see which kid could make their candy last the longest. Mom always campaigned for the hiding place to be in the freezer to keep her from being tempted to raid our loot, although all I can say is (from my experience as the mom), frozen Snickers are delicious.

    No chocolate in this house this year except for my one very special dark chocolate bark in the freezer, of which I enjoy one little square a day…okay, maybe two in honor of Halloween. Kids in our neighborhood are getting giant sweet tarts this year! That I can control, but not the other stuff, Hershey bars, Mounds, Milky Way, Reeses, off limits.

    No candy here either. I can not stop at one piece. I just finished throwing out all junk!

    We got mini boxes of Nerds because it’s lower in calories and we can fit in 50 calories if we want to on movie night. They’re not tempting but man I can see if we had kids that those big ol’ bags would be tempting. I like the persons idea about hiding the candy to see how long you can make it last for the kids.

    Me too!! I definately struggle when I don’t eat enough good calories during the day. The body has an amazing survival instinct and doesn’t want to be deficient. My problem is that it wants me to us M&M’s to ward away the deficiency. :)

    When it comes to just plain old noshing, though, I heard something really neat on the radio the other day. A lady called into a health talk show and was lamenting that she was very overweight and her doctor wanted her to try and lose some before getting pregnant. But she still just wanted to eat and “start again tomorrow”. The health-talk-show-lady gave her this tool…. and I’ve been using it.

    Every time you go to eat something, you have to say this (to the food, haha) first:

    “I can choose you, or I can choose to be healthy and (insert your goal)”

    Then… if you EAT the food, you HAVE to say it!!

    (to the food) “I choose you.”

    Boy, when you have to say it, it really makes you think!!

    We went out to dinner and a movie last night so no candy here! We were with the over 50 crowd every where we went!

    Stop! Stop watching me! How did you know that about me? Do you have a camera on my computer? Seriously, that is exactly what I do. I attempt to eat like a mouse during the day (healthy food-sometimes) because I don’t burn many calories in the office. As soon as I walk in the door–booyah–the race is on! It’s either Reduced Fat Cheeze-Its, WW cheese stick, p-nuts, reduced fat potato chips, etc. Before dinner munching is my demise. I decided to bury my old habits (even had a funeral for them) which included weighing myself everyday and the munching before dinner. I took the battery out of my scale. The first 2 days, I did well. The third day, not so well. Fell off the wagon. Dug up the old habits from the grave. The serioud thing about all this is 3 doctors said “get the weight off or diabetes is next.” Hellppppp!
