Kitchen Closed

Wednesday, July 08, 2020

Today's tip from Coach Jen was to close my kitchen after supper. I was advised to blog tonight to keep my mind occupied and off of night snacking, but I have other plans for that, so I am blogging now. Since June 27, my kitchen has been closed after supper. I make sure to have my night "snack" immediately following supper. My family has been trying to take a constitutional stroll after supper when the weather allows, so when we do this, I will have my evening snack after the stroll, but I stop eating by 7-8 PM each evening. At 8, I will relax with some TV and crocheting or games until 9:30-10 which is my new bedtime. So this evening after the kitchen closes, I will be relaxing with some crocheting, keeps my hands and my mind occupied and off of late night snacking.

What time does your kitchen close?

    I have a 19yo. son on a different time schedule. He wakes late in day, eats dinner with us, but returns to kitchen about 10pm. He is think as a rail. I too battle with p.m binge, so to me the kitchen closes at 8pm unless I eat frozen fruit. I only eat 2 meals a day with a snack so sometimes I eat but I have been good and not binging in p.m. Good idea crotcheting. I do that also or sew or knit.

    I stop eating at 6. The only exception to this is if my blood sugar takes a dip, which generally only happens when I am overtired, so I try to get good rest every night. I go to bed at 6:30 pm, but am up early, so it works for me. Going to bed with something in my stomach, I rest better because I am not hungry.

    Sounds like a good routine. My DH likes to eat later close to 7:00,so my kitchen closes by 9:00 unless we break routine. Seldom ever does DH snack. I sometimes plan a low calorie snack like jello or occasionally have popcorn. emoticon
