What Do You Talk About More- Food Or Exercise


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

I have noticed that people that are overweight (including myself) tend to talk more about the food they are going to eat rather than the exercise they are going to do. It occured to me to try re-programming my mind to talk about exercise instead of food. That way, food is secondary to exercise.

    Great idea. Mind over matter.

    True..I think focusing on the exercise keeps us from eating... I have tried taking a walk even for a few minutes when I think about eating when I shouldn't. Then I get my mind off of it and before you know it is my scheduled time to eat. emoticon

    Yeah become more focused on the moving part of our life style changes and let the food portion fall in with it... I like your idea. Today I am adding another mile to my walking getting me back to 4 miles. The next thing i want to add is swimming to what we call the ledges not sure how far it is but takes 35 min to swim over and back have done it twice in the last 2 weeks want to add at least 3 times a week.
