Goals, part 1

Friday, May 10, 2019

I am part of a challenge that asks me to create a list of habits I want to work on and officially set goals. WHEW! Seems big, scary. So, I will take it slow:

Goal 1: Fit better in my clothes and by July be able to buy a smaller size.

Habit to work on: Find 3 ways to cope when I want to eat without hunger and practice them.
Such as:
Doing something physical when I feel compelled to eat out of emotion or stress.
Talk it Out

So far, I have done fairly well. When I was tired, I got up and went to speak with coworkers instead of having caffeine. I didn't go to talk about anything specific, just for a change of scenery and for some stimulation. This also helped me stop eating peanut butter, the not great snack I chose.

Tomorrow, part 2!

    Good job! It's difficult to make the changes. Something that helped me not snack when I wasn't hungry was taking a moment to pour myself a glass of water and mix in a spoonful of barley grass or wheat grass. It helped a lot, made me feel like I was doing something constructive and, amazingly, my hair (which had stopped growing at a certain length for many years) grew longer, and thicker! emoticon emoticon

    I find that sometimes just taking a moment to stop whatever you're doing and think, helps to make the next thing I do more helpful.
