Be Grateful for All of Life


With gratitude, all life appears as a blessing - without gratitude, all of life is perceived as a burden. Avoid the tendency to compare your life with the lives of others, with your idealized hopes for life, and with your own life when you were younger. Every moment of your life is a gift -- not something you are "entitled to" or something you "deserve." Practice zero-based gratitude. Zero-based gratitude is being grateful for everything in your life -- grateful that you woke up this morning, grateful that you have enough food to eat, grateful that you can walk and breathe and see.
Thank you so much for reading my blog,have a wonderful and awesome day.

I haven't tried to limit my time with eating before. This is my first time.

I read a lot about how eating to late is hard on the metabolism and tends to work against weight loss efforts. I don't know how much truth there is to any of it, but it makes sense. I know that the body basically shuts down all but the absolutely necessary to stay alive while sleep so organs and such can rest and repair. So logically digestion would be very slow.

At the moment for me. The problem is mostly boredom. My daughter goes to sleep and my husband to work at 8pm. So 5 days a week between 8-11pm I am up basically all by myself. I have always been a late night snacker so its also part habit I think. Plus when I am truly hungry late at night its very hard and some times impossible for me to fall asleep.

So I think its basically just a matter of trying to break the habit and not think about it as much as possible. Hope this answers your questions.
