I am a computer eater, and what I'm going to do about it!
Tuesday, January 24, 2012
OK - so I haven't exactly been the model of perfection on eating. But I am increasing my walking. And doing better on water. I really am doing quite a bit of Spark Reading - which motivates me. I took a "are you ready to lose weight" quiz and read about breaking sugar addiction and got to know more about Stevia. I think this is good. I think just being on SparkPeople is going to make a difference.
However - my revelation today is " I AM A COMPUTER EATER. " Newsflash - I am not only an emotional eater - but a computer eater. Yep! I plop down at my computer with a drink (used to be soda, but that's gone) and a munchie. OMG - typing, munching, sitting - seriously not a great combo.
And here's what I'm going to do about it. NEW rule - only water when I type on SparkPeople. I am going to try to bring healthier snacks to my computer. Try for mostly water and a little tea (it's my fave). AND I am going to use that e.gg timer online site. And set it for every 5 or 15 min and make sure when it goes off to just do 10. 10 somethings - squats, jumping jacks, blinking (well, maybe not blinking), bicep curls - something. I often don't realize how long a stretch I sit here doing both work and personal surfing.
Baby steps - identify, address, conquer! (and hopefully lose weight in the process)
