Taming the Boredom Beast
Thursday, October 19, 2006
I was reading an article today about taming the emotional eating beast and I realized that I don't have too big of a problem with emotional eating. However, I realized that I do like to eat when I'm bored. My boredom beast does not crave carrots and celery sticks, no he graves sweets. I've got 1.6 more pounds to lose to reach my goal and if I don't tame this beast I may never get there, or worse I will gain some of it back. So, I'm going to be aware of the times when the boredom beast comes out and occupy my mind with something else, such as reading, knitting or crochetting, or playing the guitar. This way I can destract the beast and become better at one of my hobbies. We'll see how it goes, I won't break out the whip just yet =) .
