Midnight snacking that is. Three nights in a row I have gotten out of bed to get a snack. Luckily I don't have any unhealthy food in my house. Last night I ate raw almonds and two granola bars. The sad part is that I am not doing this out of hunger.
For some reason I am not sleeping well. Last night it was because of my daughter crying off and on. Unfortunately insomnia is a vicious cycle. I have always suffered with it but ever since I have been on the Cymbalta and Lyrica for my Fibromyalgia I have been much better. Up until recently I was doing really well. Now I am having trouble sleeping again which means my Fibromyagia is flaring up. I am in more pain and I feel so tired all of the time. I need to start sleeping well again because I just can't lead a normal life this way. My life is way too busy to be held back by my Fibromyalgia.
I know that I am not hungry in the middle of the night and that my snacking is just a really bad habit. I just need to tell myself no when I wake up feeling that need to eat. For the next few days I am going to consciously tell myself no snacking in the middle of the night. We will see how it goes. After a few nights of success my body gets out of that bad habit and I don't have to worry about it anymore. Can you tell I have done this before? :)
Do any of you have the same problem with Midnight Snacking? How do you get through it without eating everything in sight?
