I have renewed my motto to maintain a healthy relationship with food. Avoiding snacks between meals and increasing my consumption of vegetables. I had been eating salads pretty frequently before dinner, but unfortunately I found myself snacking after dinner until I went to bed which has been later and later.

Rather than setting an arbitrary goal, my mantra will be incremental healthy eating.
