A few years ago when I was in TOPS we had a phrase..."When you nibble, you got to scribble"...this was to encourage us to track all our food. Well, I never tracked all the bites here and there because it is difficult in SP food tracker. How do you weigh/measure one bite??? So, I never really have an exact track of what I eat.
Therefore, I have modified the saying to -- "When you nibble, you got to scribble. And if you can't scribble you can't nibble! This is one other thing I am going to do to help me break this habit of mindlessly eating.
So, today I was successful in the mindless eating arena. Between "DO IT NOW" and the "Scribble Nibble" sayings I stopped short many times in popping something into my mouth!
Another thing I did was to have a Think Thin Protein Bar as a snack. But I would just take one bite and slowly chew, then wait a little before I would take another bite. This helped satisfy the constant "need" to be eating something. And I was able to track it as one serving even though it lasted all morning.
It was a crazy busy day -- I had all 5 grandkids + 2 daycare kids, did laundry and made a skirt for my oldest granddaughter. Great Day!
