Great idea. Right now I am having a hard time with snacking so this would do good. I'll have to think about what to put in the jar.

For me, it would be reading a book or magazine or de-cluttering or working on the never-ending to-do list.

Doing the dishes ALWAYS stops me from needless eating! (and to be fair, there's always dishes for me to do!)

If not dishes, the going for a walk or doing a task from my to do list!

If I feel like pampering and relaxing to pass the time (just by keeping my hands busy):
Crochet/knit/quilt/needlepoint/other craft with hands
Play a hug-o-war game with my kids
Watch a 10 minute Sparkpeople video
Water my plants indoors and out
Pick some flowers and bring them to a neighbor
Book a babysitter and plan something fun for a date night
Scrapbook a page
Set up a new playlist for the MP3 player
Check out the latest hot books list and then log into the library website or Overdrive to see if I can order them

If I feel like I need to get organize so I don't use food as an excuse to procrastinate:
Remake all the beds with fresh sheets
Balance my checkbook

Clean out the car, including checking the oil
Clean out the dryer air vent
Organize/delete files on my computer

I think I'll be writing these down on popsicle/craft sticks and putting them into a pretty container or vase to pull from. This is a really fun idea - so helpful too!

Challenge 08/22/10:emoticonemoticonemoticonemoticonemoticonemoticon

Happy Sunday to you!

Every 6 months or so, I throw out this challenge. It is by far, one of my favorites. It takes a bit of planning, but it is something that we can ALL use when we are tempted with food.

1) Get some paper, scissors, and a pen
2) Find a jar, small box, or small container
3) Cut your paper into strips. You should get about 20 on a 8x11 sheet
4) Come up with ideas of things you can do INSTEAD OF EATING RIGHT NOW

The idea here is that when you are bored, frustrated, sad, angry, etc. and ARE NOT REALLY HUNGRY (your tummy isn't growling), you pull a slip of paper from your jar/box, etc. to do. Whatever is on the paper, you can do INSTEAD OF EATING. Here are some ideas to get you started:

*Brush/put whitening strips on your teeth
*Do your nails
*Go for a walk
*Write a letter or e-mail
*Drink a big glass of water
*Call a friend
*Write a blog entry
*Clean out a closet
*Balance your checkbook
*Wash the car
*Clean the bathtub

Okay team, it is your turn to throw out ideas. I've been on Spark for several years now. These ideas STILL HELP ME when I am feeling weak and my pantry is calling to me.

Remember: Have your container accessible. You may even want to have one at home, and one at work. Keep your jar/box/etc. full of ideas "just in case". This is your healthy journey lifesaver. When you go to your container INSTEAD OF FOOD, you are staying on track and getting that much closer to goal. YOU CAN DO THIS!

Have a LET YOUR CREATIVE JUICES FLOW Sunday!
