8:30pm- 1 box of Annie's organic wheat mac & cheese with 1 can of tuna and a turkey burger with cheese.

**I have noticed that not having enough calories earlier in the day leads to over eating at night.  This is a failure to prepare on my behalf.  Also, having 6 hours in the afternoon without any caloric intake is unacceptable.

** Sleep has also been an issue.  I have been working later and starting earlier.  I am usually to bed around 10 and up at 5am for 7 hours total, but this has been reduced to as little as 5 hours per night this week.  Cortisol levels have consequently increased as a result.  MUST TURN OFF THE PHONE AT NIGHT!!!!!!
