Do you enjoy mindless eating at night? Here are my top 5 favorite snacks for late night eating without gaining weight. If you are new to my blog, please consider subscribing to my YouTube channel for new health and fitness video every week!
The thing about late night eating is that if you are genuinely hungry and have not had enough calories during the day, it is totally fine to eat at any time! It doesn’t matter how late it gets, you can eat if you haven’t had enough. If you have and your mind still wants to nibble as you watch Gossip Girl, this is called emotional eating, eating out of boredom… For some people running is therapeutic, others like to eat. Instead of beating yourself up about it, acknowledge that it does in fact make you feel better. Instead of paying $100 or more for a session with a therapist, you instead are opting to pay in calories and if 200-300 calories are going to make you feel better, it’s OK. The worst thing you can do is beat yourself up about it. That being said, the ideas above are my suggestions to minimize the damage you do.
Last night, I was asked to be a model for the new Ann Taylor line. They have a new designer and the clothes are young, modern and BRIGHT! I had a few glasses of champagne and was feeling it this morning. I made plans earlier in the week to go running with Jess again, so I got up and went for 5 miles despite wanting to stay in bed.
Why am I posting this picture? Well, if you can’t tell I went BLONDE! What do you think? I am in LOVE with the curls I got from Andrew of Stilisti. I think I may have to use him for my next event! As soon as I finished running, I took out my pony to try and save the style for today!

you looked beautiful for the Ann Taylor event. I love the new spring look (who doesn’t like neon ;)) the blue goes very nicely with your skin tone.
And I love your morning look. i feel the same after champagne, too. every tried champagne with orange sherbet, vodka, and orange juice? so good!
Your hair looks so lovely!

Mindless munching is my worst enemy!
I loved your outfit for the AnnTaylor event! You looked great and what a fun way to spend Thursday night. Although it sounds like your Friday morning was not as much fun!
What’s the brand of the container you use in the microwave for the popcorn? Is it the Nordic Ware?
I munch mindlessly all the time — thanks for saying what you did about it being ok if it makes you feel better. I do find myself beating myself up about it sometimes, but I’m sure your words and tips will help!

i love these ideas! okay I have three questions
1- how do you air pop the popcorn do you put it in a pot on the stove with a little olive oil or in the microwave with a lid on it? I’ve been meaning to stop buying microwave popcorn bags.
2-I know organic foods do have a lot of benefits using all natural ingredients and such but many people say just because it’s better for the environment doesn’t necessarily make it better for you. should i be spending the extra money and trust the brands?
3- also are sunflower and cotton seed oils in ingredients on foods i buy something i should try and avoid along with palm oil?
Thanks so much! love the blonde!
