The (not so mysterious) mysteries of sneaking in

Tuesday, April 28, 2015

Thanks goodness for the SP food tracker! As you know I have taken the habit of tracking what I eat every day or so, in order to keep my eating under control in this phase of final losing (a couple of pounds) and maintaining. Well, I have recently found out that I'm letting useless stuff sneaking in during the day - cookies, nuts, crackers. And they are adding to my calorie count without much reason as they're a sort of mindless snacking I do when I'm stressed. Earlier, I was more focused probably, because I didn't feel this need of snacking, whilst now I find myself eating even if I have already had my meal a short while ago. I cannot always have a walk or exercise to distract my mind, so what could I do? Any suggestions from my SP friends? emoticon emoticon

    I also , have cut up veggies, well at least I use to. That is what I snacked on in the beginning, now I try to think more about what I am doing. Do I need to eat? Am I really hungry? Usually the answer is no!! Especially if I have already eaten.
    If not I go back to cut up veggies or some fruit and water. emoticon

    My solutions: baby carrots, cucumber and chewing gum.

    I also made some flash cards to help change my sabotaging thoughts: so I may take them out and sift through them.

    Here a link to where I posted a blog about them:

    I like to cut up some veggies, carrots, celery, green pepper strips, green beans - anything will do. I keep some in a bowl in the fridge so they are easy to grab. Put some water in with them and leave the cover off and it is even easier to take something from that bowl.

    I also make pre-filled snack bags of nuts, popcorn, etc. and enter one of them in the tracker. If I eat it, it's already counted. If I don't, it's easy enough to delete.
