My love goes to Julie B. & Cathie M. for their encouraging words today. Thank you ladies!
Plan to finish your last meal at least 2 hours before bedtime.
How to do it
Tonight, aim to finish your last meal at least two hours before bedtime. If you feel hungry for a snack before bed, stick to something small and light, like a handful of whole grain crackers or a small piece of fruit.
Why it matters
Four out of five people with heartburn experience symptoms at night, which can be directly tied to noshing too close to bedtime. Finishing your last meal at least two hours before lying down can help lessen the chance of discomfort disturbing your shuteye.
The chorus "Burn, baby, burn" from the Trammps' "Disco Inferno" isn't about the disco craze. It references a saying attributed to 1960s activist Bill Epton.
Did You Know?
Humans are born with 300 bones in their body, however when a person reaches adulthood they only have 206 bones. This occurs because many of them join together to make a single bone.
In 1993 there were an estimated 64 million cats in the United States. ( I had 11 of them! LOL)
I am glad they said MEAL and not SNACK. My meals are always done at least two hours before I go to bed. Hubby usually makes dinner somewhere between 7 pm & 8 pm.
He was just commenting the other day, that he thought it was to hot to cook dinner at that time, and he was thinking of making dinner around 10 pm when it was cooler. I told him that actually we should be having our big meal in the morning, in stead of at night. It would be much healthier for us, and we could have our small meals through out the day. He agreed, but I know it will never happen. This man hates change of any kind. I let him do all the cooking, because when I cook, he says things like, "my Mom never made that when we were kids", or "that doesn't taste like how my mom made it", or "ewwww I don't like that, it looks gross". I will eat almost anything, I was brought up tasting foods from all cultures. I also know that as we grow, our taste for things change. But he refuses to try something that he didn't like before. My taste buds have changed a lot, and that is partial because I will try things I didn't like before. If he wants to be so darn picky, than he can do the cooking.
He is also the one in this household that wants hot, hot weather. He says the hotter the better! So why does he complain that it is too hot to cook?
Oh well....I do eat a snack before I go to bed, usually an hour before I go to bed, sometimes earlier. Yes Cathie, a lot of times it is ice cream, yumm, but some times it's fruit or vegetables, sometimes it's a small bowl of rice with milk cinnamon and sugar.
Challenge ~ DONE! ~
Mild day today, only in the 60's and the wind is blowing. We got just a tiny bit of rain during the night.
I did get some better sleep last night, but I still think I need more to catch-up. I also think I need to get up and walk more, maybe take a stroll outside. My hips are hurting, and I can't sit still, because nothing feels comfortable. I'm usually a some what hyper person, and since I'm not doing anything, My husband thinks I'm going to explode, like the Hindenburg. LOL
So I'm going to take a little walk outside, move those hips and legs. Then I think I'll come in and take a nap. He he he
Remember to smile and laugh!
Have a wonderful day with many! *smiles*
Take the time to live!!!
Life is short.
Dance naked (but not while frying bacon!) Woo-hoo!
