Changing to make new habits

Monday, March 04, 2013

So I want to work to change my old habits into new healthier ones. First I need to identify the poor habits - the first one I am focussing on is - eating at night. Looking at my food journal it is the food I take in during the evening that puts me over my food limit. It is at this that I am alone, everybody else is sleeping and I can decompress. I find myself reaching out for sweet, salty, crunch - a combination that is a formula for failure. So if I do not plan I will continue to do the same thing all the time while wishing I was different. This week I am planning different activities in the evening so that my usual is different which will cause me to something different. So what am I doing? My plan is to reorganize my bedroom to have it total done by Friday.

    emoticon Keeping busy is a good way not to get those evening munchies. Plus being organized makes you feel good!
I have to be careful with that too. My new fix. I have been eating an apple in the evenings and that seems to really fix that need for the sweet and crunchy. When I need more I get a little caramel dip and that really fixes it!
I know you can do it!

    Awesome, Corinne! Maybe saving some calories for that decompressing time will allow you enjoy that alone time and not go over your calorie limit. Just a thought....

Looking forward to hearing how the reorganization of your bedroom goes!
