food craving and jokes

Tuesday, May 22, 2012

THIS IS kind of funny since on spark live we just did a week on overating and now my new team assignment is to write bout way to stop food craving. This one I can do
So way to stop food craving
1. 1. Be Careful the Type of Food You Pick As a Reward...A Bad Choice Can Start a Downhill Spiral. this is one of biggest thing. If I started eating chips I will overeat to the mass. In fact chips are one of the few foods that I tried to avoid.
2. Look a or think of your vision board when you feel a craving coming on. You see a vision board is basically just the pics of what your goals. I have one made it for spark live. So when I have food craving I think of my pics of wanting to dance at my nephews and nieces. This is a big one for me because I really couldn’t dance at any of my sibling wedding and dancing is a big thing in my family.
3. make one of your other goal on spark to stop craving so every time you stop a craving you check it off as a small goals this give you motivation to stop the next craving
4. Distract yourself.
Read, play music, meditate or call a friend. Keep yourself busy for 15 minutes. When you're finished, the craving will be too.. I been trying to exercise on the wii for 15 min when I get a craving. It usually help.
5. Keep a food journal.
Note what you crave, and the date and time you want it. Finding hourly and monthly patterns will ward off future urges or help you handle them better. For example, if you hit the vending machine in the afternoons, eat a more filling lunch, switch up your schedule so you’re busier then or keep healthier snacks (like edamame) nearby- I have been trying but it havn;t kick in o
okay so now for your jokes
Things to ponder
Last night I played a blank tape at full blast. The mime next door went nuts.

If a person with multiple personalities threatens suicide, is that considered a hostage situation?

Just think how much deeper the ocean would be if sponges didn't live there.

If a cow laughed, would milk come out her nose?
A bet made at the local bar
A man walks into a bar, and as he makes his way to the counter, he stops and talks to everyone in the bar. As he finishes with each group of people, they all get up and leave and go stand outside the window, looking in. Finally, the bar is empty except for this guy and the bartender. The man walks up to the counter, and says to the bartender, "I bet you $1,000 that I can spray beer from my mouth into a shot glass from thirty feet away, and not get any outside the glass."

The bartender thinks that this guy is a nutcase, but he wants his $1,000, so he agrees. The bartender gets out a shot glass, paces off thirty feet, and the contest begins. The man sprays beer all over the bar. He doesn't even touch the shot glass. When he finishes, the bartender looks at him and says, "Well, I guess you owe me $1,000, huh?"

The man answers, "Yeah, but I bet all of those people outside the window $500 a piece that I could come in here and spray beer all over the bar."
Two boys were arguing when the teacher entered the room.
The teacher says, “Why are you arguing?”
One boy answers, “We found a ten dollar bill and decided
to give it to the person who tells the biggest lie.”
“You should be ashamed of yourselves,” said the teacher,
“When I was your age, I didn’t even know what a lie was.”
The boys gave the ten dollars to the teacher

    I really like your #3 -- if you have a craving and are able to ward it off, you've met a goal! I have not followed through on the vision board, and maybe that's one of my "hurdles" that I need to overcome to truly be able to move forward. But I'm really thinking about adding the "overcame a craving" to my other goals. And that's one goal that I'd like to eventually not need!

    Great suggestions. I might have to "borrow" some. My biggest downfall is chocolate. I need to get away from it, but the lady at the front desk has a whole jar. Sigh..............

    Jokes were hilarious, keep 'em coming, they make me laugh!
