Post-dinner sweets = nightly struggle.
Girl, I totally get it.
You know that craving you have for chocolate after dinner while you're watching [𝘪𝘯𝘴𝘦𝘳𝘵 𝘤𝘶𝘳𝘳𝘦𝘯𝘵 𝘱𝘰𝘱𝘶𝘭𝘢𝘳 𝘕𝘦𝘵𝘧𝘭𝘪𝘹 𝘴𝘩𝘰𝘸]?
That's a habit.
Here is the good news: habits can be broken.
Right now, your current routine probably looks something like:
𝟷. 𝘌𝘢𝘵 𝘥𝘪𝘯𝘯𝘦𝘳
𝟸. 𝘗𝘶𝘵 𝘢𝘸𝘢𝘺 𝘥𝘪𝘯𝘯𝘦𝘳/𝘥𝘪𝘴𝘩𝘦𝘴
𝟹. 𝘎𝘦𝘵 𝘬𝘪𝘥𝘴 𝘳𝘦𝘢𝘥𝘺 𝘧𝘰𝘳 𝘣𝘦𝘥
𝟺. 𝘛𝘶𝘳𝘯 𝘰𝘯 𝘺𝘰𝘶𝘳 𝘴𝘩𝘰𝘸
𝟻. 𝘎𝘳𝘢𝘣 𝘢 𝘴𝘯𝘢𝘤𝘬 & 𝘩𝘪𝘵 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘤𝘰𝘶𝘤𝘩
Your habit is to grab a snack before you sit down.
Instead, try this. After you finish with your kids (or whatever chore), go brush your teeth.
Add that new habit into your current routine.
You might still head to the kitchen or pantry without thinking, but eventually, you'll omit the snack from that routine because who likes to brush their teeth twice a night?
Will this work 100% of the time? Probably not. But it will create a barrier to snacking. And the more barriers you put between you and a bad habit, the more likely you will be to ditch that bad habit.
Let me know when you try this!
