After reading today's article on procrastination, I know I am on my way. I started tidying up the kitchen after dinner (versus my morning routine). Now upon waking, the kitchen is done (morning dread is gone too), Now I can have a new routine by using that time to exercise and set daily goals.

I live in a vintage building and my kitchen has doors that can be closed. I've created a "Kitchen is Closed" sign. After meal time is done and I've cleaned up, the kitchen doors are closed and the sign goes up. This will remind me not to graze between meals or pre-planned snacks.
To help the picking and binging after tea, once I have cleaned up and finished organising lunches for the next day, I keep repeating this mantra - the kitchen's closed, the kitchen's closed- it seems to be working for me! The fact that I I also want to log off for the day on tracking my daily food intake is another motivator for the kitchen being closed!
