Treat Yourself!

Nutella! That's all I need to say, lol. I thought initially that Nutella was terrible for you, all candy or milk chocolate, high calorie, high fat. It's not that far from peanut butter. It's made with cocoa, not a milk chocolate & tons of ground hazelnuts. Spread it on warm toast! OMG

Music

If I turn the TV on, which is usually background noise, I sit down. If I turn music on, I get up and dance, clean, and just in general get up and move. I feel better and make progress on my to-do list.

Allow for "cheats"

Allow yourself a cheat now and again--but include it in your plan for the day. If you don't let yourself have "forbidden foods" occasionally, you will end up binging and doing far worse!

Prep Day

After shopping, I spend a couple hours washing, peeling, chopping, dicing, etc. This way all my veggies are ready to go to quickly throw a meal together on a late night. I'm never tempted to grab fast food when I know I can make a meal easily and quickly.

Laugh, Smile

Start your morning with a smile or laugh. It does the body/soul good. I started off smiling this morning and haven't stopped all day. There are a lot of things to cry about, Heck cry tomorrow.

Audibly Rationalize Why...

If you find yourself staring at a piece of food you can't seem to say no to stop for a brief moment and explain to yourself why you should have the food or better still why you should NOT have the food. Do it out loud if you're alone or explain it to a friend if you're in company.

pre made breakfast!

I fry my bacon (turkey) on Sunday drain it on paper towel. Then put it on a paper plate zip it up in a gallon zip lock bag. I pre-mix pancake batter. That way all I have to do is fire up the griddle and I also pre wash fruits and cut them up....

Learn to Estimate Calories

Take mental notes of calories in food, do flash-card drills if you have to.
Practice estimating the calorie count in foods you didn't prepare, ie. let your spouse make the food or estimate the calories when you go out to dinner and then ask for a nutrition fact-sheet if they have one to compare.<...
