Kim, when I feel like that I take my newspaper and magazines and go to a coffee shop and read for a good hour while sipping my tea!
Or I go to the gym, which is probably better.
Housework (cleaning) is another option! When I feel bored I start cleaning things that I have been neglecting, like shoes, sports shoes, gym bag, hairbrushes, fridge,oven, whatever. Not mentally stimulating, but at least it involves movement.
Good idea to make batches of soup, so that you are prepared for snack attacks.View Thread
I think Nike's slogan, Just Do It, is good when it comes to exercise - don't think about it too much, just do it.
But when it comes to dieting, I change it to Just Don't Do It. It is what I Do rather what I Don't Do, that is causing the most damage (like eating the whole roll of candy).
Just Don't Buy the wrong food, Jus't Don't carry the wrong snacks in your handbag, Just Don't keep your jaws moving when you are on the computer, Just Don't eat candy late at night when reading in bed - all these apply to me!
You may have a different Just Don't Do It for yourself. I have to remind myself that if I can just practise mine long enough, it will eventually become automatic Not To Do It (but I'm not there yet!).View Thread
