"Old Dog" and "New" Trick

I recently resumed running as a cardio exercise, and I feel better mentally and physically. Exercising outdoors clears the cobwebs for the rewarding and stress-filled work of a middle school teacher.

Walk / Jog in Place during the Day

I work from home, so I have to be sitting at least 8 hours a day in front of the computer. I have found several short songs with a very quick beat that work well when I have a moment to hope up and walk, sidesteps, or jog in place. I turn and look out the window or door to refocus my eyes. I sit back down feeling refreshed.

Have 1.5 litre water available all day

I've started stopping at a small grocery store to buy a 1.5 litre bottle of water every day on my way to work. It's only a dollar and having that bottle on the desk all day allows me to make sure I get at least 6 glasses of water throughout the day.

Trigger Foods - Binge Eating

If you are a food addict and have certain "trigger" foods DO NOT KEEP THEM IN THE HOUSE! If you are craving them get a single serving size while you are out and eat what you want of it (while tracking the calories). Then you won't be able to binge on it but still satisfy your craving!

Park as far away from entrances as safety will permit!

When not wearing my highest heels, I park as far away from grocery store, malls and other entry ways as possible.

Stay Active

I try to stay off my butt as much as possible. There are so many activities to take part in such as: walking, riding the bike, work with the dogs, work in the yard, etc.

Training my brain to think like a thin person

I follow SP & Judith Beck's (Ph.D) book called "The Beck Diet Solution". She builds a mental strategy that works for me. She outlines responses we might make to her strategies and provides the healthy mental responses to counter our resistance. It's at the library and it's working for me. Cravings have vanished. I've talked myself through difficult eating challenges by using her techniques. I think it's great.
