Arrange Your Environment
Today is all about clearing out the junk stuff and tossing or hiding it and placing healthy foods where those are what I'll see. Good task! Quite a bit of junk has crept into the kitchen and pantry. Cans of whipped cream, boxes of granola cereal, boxes of crackers. Hubbers loves his treats and I have partaking in the evenings. Especially with the granola cereal. That may as well be cookies, cake or ice cream. It probably has the same carbs and sugar. Recently evenings have been a real challenge for me.
SO... because he is a good guy, when he wakes up from his nap I will ask him to take all that stuff down to his mini reefer in his man cave. Then I'll clean the refrigerator. That's plenty for the rest of the day.
This is a powerful step for me. I have been lead too much astray by "see food". For me, this step is out of sight, out of mouth. (Unfortunately, the reverse is also true for me.) I could always walk downstairs and grab the stuff from the man cave but truly, out of sight works really well. It's even possible to forget the stuff is there.
Not exactly keeping the Sabbath but oh, well.
