What can I do different?

Saturday, August 23, 2014

New habits are a must. Doing something different will get us to some place different. Maybe even a place that seems to be a bit of a fantasy right now.

I used to knit and crochet to avoid/reduce night time eating. With my finger injured that is not an option. I have made cards for card weaving. I will make the loom soon. I got the stuff. I have books to read. I like FB & SP. I am writing too.

I know that just paying attention will help. What have you found that helps you?

    Thankfully there are many things that you can do depending on your interests and where you live. Like TRAVELGRRL sometimes I just have to go to bed. I have a "food only in the kitchen" rule so there is no munching while watching tv or a movie.
    Plan an adventure, that gives me something else to focus on.
    Speaking of focus finding a challenge I've done a few. Dr Judith Beck and the Beck Diet solution helped with learning skills/tools.
    I was thinking of joining ~INDYGIRL team and challenge.
    Copy and past this link to her blog for more info.
    You will find what you need.

    I am sorry about your finger. It appears I'm not the only one who does clumsy things that sideline us from our normal lives!

    I am not crafty at all. I read a LOT but not in the evenings. I've found that NOT watching food shows or muting food commercials helps reduce those mindless "snack attacks". I also remind myself (like I learned in the Beck Diet Solution) that hunger is not an emergency. That by tracking I know I've had enough to eat. Sometimes I'll eat frozen grapes or berries. Sometimes I just have to go to bed!

    I don't know if any of this is helpful to you, but take comfort that "night time eating" is something we ALL seem to struggle with!
