Replace bad habits with good ones! I'm taking time to enjoy nature while I walk. Enjoying tohe owl out my window! Look at him! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public _journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5219562
I have been very inactive on this team, but this thread really struck a chord! I am an evening snacker and I need to kick that habit. I like the idea of structuring the self denial until the craving goes away. I am also planning on subbing in knitting and water for the chips and other munchies I so adore in the evenings.
Each day got through means one or two less mistakes remain to be made (Chess)
Just wanted to pass along something that I do to kick bad habits. It really has worked for me.
I pick a bad habit every week to kick until I kick it. I can usually do this in two weeks.
What I do is choose one bad habit such as ice cream. I will fast from ice cream Mon - Fri. Eat what I want of it on Saturday and Sunday. I fast it again on Monday - Friday. By this time my mind is realizing that I really don't need the ice cream so the cravings for it goes away.
