This has been a very long week and I woke up to snow on the ground. Yuck, I'm not ready for this!
However, the day ended very well. I went to a talk by Brian Wansink this afternoon. He wrote Mindless Eating. I loved this book, and he is a very dynamic and funny speaker, so it was great fun as well as informative.
His work is amazing and one of the things he talks about is making small changes that make eating mindless, but in a good way. A lot of ideas are common sense. Like at work, if you have a candy jar, keep it in a place that you have to get up and walk to instead of right on your desk. If bad habits are too convenient, that's what we'll do.
He also talked about the "ripple effect" of making one small change and how it can lead to other small changes that put together can make a huge difference in our lives.
This all makes such sense, I can't believe it's taken me so many years to get it.

Man, this week seems like it's a month long. I can't believe it's only Wednesday. I think the anticipation of a couple of days off from work next week is making it drag.
I'm not sure what we're doing for the holiday. We have a few options, but we do need to go to my parents' house at some point because we have to pick up some furniture they're trying to get rid of. I'm sure it will be a challenge foodwise, but I'm not really scared. I've been really stressed at work, so I would like to just stay home and relax, but don't think that's going to happen.
I have done a progress check on my steps. I've been wearing my pedometer for 13 days and I've walked a lot more than I thought. I've walked 104,730 steps. That's over 52 miles! At this rate, I think I should make my son's house well before Christmas. He better get a room ready!
