Day 5 - Magic Notebook
I like the idea of the magic notebook. I see it as two things really - a journal, which I have here through Spark's Planner, for longer writing; and a quick note like on a memo on my phone or paper in my pocket when I am at work. I like the idea of for the moment writing down the name of the tempting food, maybe a description, then telling myself I am not going to eat any right now. 'Course, I could carry paper in my pocket outside of work as well - and then I could "throw away" the thought of food that is on that paper. :)
Day 6 - Protect My Program
I really like this idea of when I am around other people and food, say "not just yet" or "I'm going to wait a little while".
What fortunate timing about seeing this reading today. In the past - and earlier today - I struggled with protecting my program, making taking care of myself a priority. Not so much that other people pushed themselves first, but that I put everybody else first. Today, while my teenaged son is still sleeping, I am putting as a priority the I-need-quiet self care activities - including working through these lessons in Spangle's 100 Day Weight Loss book.
