Before you eat anything ask yourself 'are you honoring yourself by what you're getting ready to eat'. I have this on a sheet of paper in my kitchen, you may want to put it on your refrigerator or somewhere else that you'll look at.
Since I eat out a lot I always take part of my meal home. Ask for a box at the beginning of your meal and box up part of it and don't open it until you get home.
I often spend hours sitting behind a desk. I will set my phone to chime every hour and remind me to get up and stretch, move and even do a few jumping jacks. I find that at the end of the day, if I will get up and move at least once every hour I don't feel near as "worn out" at the end of the day
