My main ghost stems around snacking. I was raised to snack, and if we did not have sweets in the house, mix sugar and cocoa and eat that. Somehow I think I just have to have snacks around 3 in the afternoon and 8 to 9 PM at night. It is difficult for me to consider fruit or other healthy options as a good "snack."
I know that I need to change my idea of what a snack is and I probably need to do away with "snack" in my vocabulary and habits all together. Instead I need to plan "meals", including small, healthy meals at those times when I tend to think I need to eat, not necessarily to eat them, but to have a plan and preparation for those times. But for the most part, I need to listen to my body's hunger signals over my habitual snack signals.
This month I will work to be alert to my thoughts when "snacking" enters my head, to see if I can discover those "ghost" thought processes and take them captive with true knowledge that can help me to change my habits.
