Spring 5% Challenge Triggers

Monday, March 31, 2014

Pre-Challenge Assignment #7 - Triggers

My triggers foods are sweets, cookies and cake and brownies. I usually reach for these in the evening when I am bored. Evenings are hard for me because DH works and I am left to my own devices. I should be bored cause I have plenty to do, but I usually don't want to do what needs to be done so I end up doing nothing then I get bored.

Plan to stop: Everytime I want a cookie, I will stop myself and do one household chore.

    I like that plan.. in my case, I guess my house would be really clean! But I will try this next time my husband makes dessert! ;)

    My trigger is food. I see it, I want it.

My strategy is to be on SparkPeople.com continuously, to remind me of what i really want, and to remind me of others struggling also and to align myself with them, to reach my goals.
