Journey While Pregnant

Hey hey!! This is our last Always Eat After 7 Pm check-in here on the blog. Its been a fun four weeks, right? Managing Eating IS HARD while being a wife, mom, teacher, housekeeper, social worker, and all the other hats we wear. Am I alone in this?

If you’re just joining us make sure you go back through and read about the last 3 weeks. ( Here, Here & Here). There are some pro-tips that you don’t want to miss.

When starting any new dieting journey we are always skeptical about if we are going to make it through the full process. For me, it was always will my personal discipline holding me from making a real impact.

As I’ve stated through out the last 4 weeks, snaking late night was where I went wrong. I craved all the sweet snacks, anything filled with a crab is what I went for. Especially while being in my last trimester. But, Always Eat After 7 pm helped me with choosing snacks that I loved and that loved me back.

What I’ve Learned:

During our four week time, we’ve learned the science behind ” Always Eat After 7 pm”. This was a good backbone to stand on; knowing there is science behind all that your reading and taking in as a full-on lifestyle change.

I’ve been so impressed by how the minor changes that I’ve instituted from the book have quickly become routine in my day. Now, I don’t have to worry about what time I’m eating. Now, I focus on the quality of what is going in my body.

Just as Joel, states in the book it’s easy to remove the friction as you can simply make small changes that make a huge impact. One of my favorite parts of the book compares photos. Basically you can have this or you can have ALL of this nourishing food that will surely fill you up and not affect you badly later.

What I will take with me:

If you take away anything from my review let it be this, You can do this. Yes, I know it sounds cliche but, it’s true. It takes discipline and education to truly make a full turnaround. Always Eat After 7 pm book, helps us make easy changes that don’t feel like we are having to give up everything we love.
