Hello and welcome to my blog! If this is your first time visiting me then let me introduce myself. I’m a CHRISTIAN LIFESTYLE health coach for your Body, Mind, Emotions, and your relationship with God and Food. I specialize in teaching my clients to RECONDITION THEIR MIND! Why? Because I am sick of seeing beautiful people like you, not living life to the fullest. I want to help people change their lives, their body and soul, so that they can celebrate their breakthroughs with others and I plan on being that person celebrating with YOU! The goal to stop eating at night is to SHIFT your mind to experience the JOY OF THE LORD as your spiritual WEAPON.
Now that you know what I do let's go over “8 WAYS TO STOP EATING AT NIGHT”
“A POINT I WANT TO MAKE HERE: These are some common things we can think about but each one of us are different due to our lifestyle. Maybe you are a working Mom while others could be home more, or your job requires you to work late or travel and as a result each lifestyle has a different effect on your daily challenges.
FIND OUT YOUR WHY? MOOD & FOOD TYPICAL PROBLEMS
Failure and Hopelessness: We just break our boundaries trying to lose weight and then we feel like a failure. So what do we do? We break them again. “ I Might as well eat more since we already broke my boundaries, right? This leads to hopelessness, which just makes us want to eat even more.
Can’t Resist Temptation: Visuals entice me period! Temptation is real. It’s hard to follow our boundaries all day. It takes a lot of control. Are you allowing your senses to be triggered? Sight is one of them when you are watching commercials? How about aroma? Is someone cooking late or eating in front of you? Are you just so tired that you want to give in and let your guard down? It’s easy to give up when we’re tired at night.
Habit: It could be that we have just developed a bad habit of eating every night after dinner and now it’s really hard to give up our special treats.
Sugar Crashes It could be you ate too many carbs that spike your blood sugar and now you are craving more and feeling tired and hungry. Are you addicted to something high in sugar, like chocolate or that Dunkin Donut Latte’ and your blood sugar is unstable.
Your Hungry You are just plain hungry because you had a busy day, maybe you are taking diet pills or appetite suppressants. Did you skip a meal or perhaps you did not take time to eat lunch with plenty of vegetables. Could it be you made on purpose to starve or eat too little in an effort to lose weight and now you're really hungry. This sets us up to binge eat especially at night.
Comfort: Are you feeling sad and lonely? Are you worried, frustrated, annoyed? What are you going through lately? This is a huge reason for overeating at night. What kind of problems and challenges are you facing? I call eating food at night, like a mini-vacation. A WAY TO GET AWAY FROM IT ALL...and forget about it! We have a way of putting on an attitude. ‘Ah forget about it” i'll just start tomorrow....All to familiar right?
HERE ARE YOUR SOLUTIONS TO STOP EATING AT NIGHT
It’s time to come up with NEW ways to tackle the problem of eating at night. Here are 8 very effective ways to recondition your mind, body and soul. Include the Lord and pray about this.
NO MORE MINDLESS EATING - eating while doing something else! MINDLESS EATING - Do not eat in front of tv, iPhone or computer. This is a must.
Learn to exercise your faith and believe you can. “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me”.
What I did not share with you yet is that my husband and I have a music ministry and so way back in the day when I was suffering and in pain from a condition I was told is inoperable, I had to put my faith in action and trust in the power of God to heal me. Not so easy when intense physical pain is the ruling negative. BUT! Praise God who provides the Holy Spirit to comfort, strengthen and guide us when we are feeling lost and alone...
I was in the dark lonely place, then I began to sing my prayers and sing bible verses to invite the joy and peace of God in my heart, soul and mind. Time went by and suddenly, roughly 9 months later and I knew my healing was taking place. In fact, we are taught in the bible how to think. We see this in the book of Psalms and many other books as well. Singing to the Lord is a way of meditation, putting your faith in action and we will read this in some bible verses below.
Here are a few of my favorites I want to leave with you.
Psalm 89: 1 I will sing of the mercies of the Lord for ever: with my mouth will I make known thy faithfulness to all generations.
Psalm 104: 33-34 I will sing unto the Lord as long as I live: I will sing praise to my God while I have my being. 34 My meditation of him shall be sweet: I will be glad in the Lord.
In closing, find your vision, pray and believe God wants you well, healthy and whole. Get in the race and if you need my assistance you can book a call to check to see if I have coaching openings.
