I have created a weekly dinner menu. This way I dont have to think about what we are having and when we are going to have it. I walk through the door from work, change into my clothes, start dinner and head to the treadmill. I walk for 30 minutes, adjusting to the hop off time to get to the kitchen to check on the meal that is cooking, sometimes I wait until I have walked the 30 mintues to start. Then I do cardo workouts in the kitchen while finishing dinner up.
I dont eat as much when I set down due to the fact I feel full after I excercise and I want and drink more water instead of going for a Seirra Mist or tea.

Every night before going to sleep I put myself through a routine of stretches. Most involve my legs and hips. Takes 7-10 minutes. Helps me to relax and I sleep more sound. Not tossing and turning with moving my legs.
Upon opening the refrigerator to mindlessly graze, ask: "Do I really need to eat right now, or am I snacking because I'm stressed, tired, or bored?" If it's really the scheduled time to snack, choose a healthy snack instead of the comfort food. If not, choose to shut the door instead of sabotaging the development of healthy new eating habits.
This prevents me from ruining the progress I have made with healthy new eating habits
