I try to do yoga twice a week, though I'm still trying to get back in my groove since the move.

I'll have to think about if I was thinner or not.

"Yoga Helps Prevent Middle Age Spread" is another article that talks about a way to avoid temptation.

Thousands participated in a study that found lower weight gain or even loss in subjects that practice yoga. The organizer of the study "suspects that yoga increases body awareness and sensitivity to the feeling fullness, which makes it easier to not overeat. Researchers also speculate that yoga cultivates a form of inner strength, giving participants the ability to resist tempting foods."

I guess it might be time to go back to a regular practice. I don't remember if I was physically lighter when I practiced yoga regularly, but I was certainly spiritually lighter.

That is interesting.... I'll have to give it some thought. Good for you, though, not eating the cookies.

I tried it yesterday and I didn't have the cookies. I'm not sure what role the visualization had. In any case I'm happy I didn't eat the cookies.

Also, I read an article in WSJ (A Divine Way to Resist Temptation) that indicates thinking about G-d makes avoiding temptation easier. It says even non-religious people can benefit from thinking about divine thoughts. When study participants were led to religous thought, they delayed gratification. Hmm.

Let us know how that goes! Cause, I can't imagine it would be the same. :)

Today's featured article had an interesting nugget: "New research shows that just imagining yourself eating a treat can decrease your desire to eat the real thing."

Hmm. I'm going to try this next time I get 'snacky.'

Good luck getting back into a routine. I fall out of routine too easily, vacation, tummy ache, stressful projects....But, I keep coming back and the distractions from my course are getting shorter.

I'm starting a new job in a new city (which so far, I'm not bonding with), so my goal is to get a routine down between the new job, exercising, and cooking.

I usually login to SP at least one day on the weekend, sometimes both days. emoticon

Wow, summer is almost here. I'm taking the Spring Challenge. How about you? What are your plans for this month? This month holds most of weeks 18, 19, 20, 21, & 22. That's almost a full five weeks to complete your goals for the month. Good luck.
