To do instead of eating!

Saturday, March 19, 2011

It's Saturday 11:30 AM. I'm bored and milling around the kitchen thinking about eating. I have my lunch planned and have already had my planned snack. I took a glucomannan capsule and drank a boatload of water but I'm still thinking about eating, so I thought I'd make 'to-do' list of stuff I can do instead of eating!
*Play my fiddle
*Do a 10 minute Spark workout
*Pick up a room (not the kitchen!)
*Do some laundry
*Plan tomorrow's food and activity
*Update my goals
*Write an email to a friend
*Look for a song on the internet
*Shop for fitness clothing
*Catch up with my kids
Finally, if I really just HAVE to eat something...
a no calorie food:
*cup of tea
*unsweetened cold tea
*flavored soda water
a low calorie food
*an espresso (herbal or reg) with non-fat milk and stevia
*V-8 juice
*celery stalk
*a few carrot sticks

    Thanks for the encouragement everyone! I just posted some ideas for when you just have to eat something! I've gotten out my little espresso maker and am enjoying steamed non fat milk in either real coffee or in this herbal coffee substitute, Teechino. I add a little stevia sweetener. Somehow eating foamed milk with a spoon feels absolutely luxurious! emoticon
