1) Fighting Daily Crave time; 2) Fitting in Exercise Minutes; and 3) Giving Yourself Props
Instead of pacing around constantly thinking about what I craved for a 3-4PM afternoon snack, alternately fighting the urge or feeling guilty if I gave in--I'd keep my body busy and do those 20 minutes' of exercises I'd set as a goal. That's 4 exercises, 5 minutes each! By the time you choose them, do them, and track them in, that snacky craving feeling is long forgotten. So pat yourself on the back!

Having a craft project available helps me curb my cravings for snacks when I am bored. It kills two birds with one stone - I get the craft project done (and quickly start another) and I keep from eating out of boredom!
