an end to the evening grazing

Sunday, January 27, 2013

it's kept me on the high side of my alloted calories. I know it's mindless and done out of boredom. So....as of today I will use the time more wisely. I will take my shower in the evening and pamper myself everday with all those new body lotions I bought, give myself a pedicure and manicure and spend the time taking care of me. Maybe some nites it will be a long soak in the tub since I am not a bath person this will not happen often but it will be about pampering me. Getting rid of the winter skin in preperation for the spring/summer season. It comes quick in Oklahoma.

A month into this journey and my motivation is still high. Things are become easier and counting calories has become a habit. Now to "habitize" other areas. You got this girl! The date with the horse in October will be delightful.

    Good to recognize that what you need to do is keep yourself busy (relieve boredom) and pamper yourself (provide comfort).
    Smart strategy and great game plan!

    Good on you for recognizing that it's boredom eating. I deal with that too - at times. One thing that helped me was to cut up vegetables and then I'd reach for those to graze on, rather than fatty foods. Sounds like you have a good plan with the bath soaks and pampering yourself. You can do this. :)

    I brush my teeth right after dinner, and that has helped me with the grazing tremendously.

    Good job! Awareness is such a big part of the battle. Knowing it's boredom eating, and then filling the time with other than food, is
    a big step forward.
