Thinking away emoyional eating binge...

I am an emotional eater. I'm discovering that when I have an immediate urge to eat junk food or sweets..not out of hunger but emotional driven desire to stuff my emotions down...if I take a moment and ask myself why....and ask myself what is bothering me...then I think about my goals...the want to grab junk food is gone in a few minutes....I can think myself out of an eating binge. Sometimes I have to think my way out two or three times a day but each time it gets easier to not cross that line.

You do to have 5 minutes - get up and MOVE IT!:)

At several points throughout the day, I set a timer for 5 minutes, turn on some music and run in place, do some squats, grab a set of dumbbells - just get up and MOVE. It's fun and I can really work up a sweat! Even on days when I'm not really feeling it, I can talk myself into just turning on some music and pretending like I like to exercise for 5 minutes. Before I know it, I feel better! It's really great this time of year when it's too hot to go play outside and a fantastic stress reliever, too.

Healthy, easy, delicious treat

Are you barbecuing this weekend? Grill some fruit for an easy treat. You can grill anything from melon to pitted fruits. Suggestion: cut some peaches in half. Remove the pit. Spray the cut halves with cooking spray. Grill cut side down until the fruit has some grill marks, a couple minutes on each side, but be careful not to overcook, as the fruit will get mushy. Enjoy guilt free AND get your serving of fruit. It's a win-win!

Ways to add movement

My job is very sedentary, working at a desk all day. I'm consciously trying to make the effort to stand up to do as much as I can. Also, I'm parking as far away from the building as I can to get in more steps coming and going. I'm more active at home, but again, I'm making an effort to do as much as possible while standing instead of sitting.

Cleaning

I know it's kind of a dirty word... sorry for the bad pun, but I find that when I need to move I can just work on some extra cleaning project or do some chore that is not usually my responsibility.

Enthusiasm

In terms of getting family members to walk the dog, bike ride, or do workouts in our home gym together, my "secret" is enthusiasm. I'm certainly NOT the "perky" type, but when they see my smiles when about to do something listed above, one of the two of them tends to like to join in.

adding extra movement to my day

if I can, I'll walk/ride my bike to run an errand instead of taking the car. Eg., in the morning if we need one thing from the grocery store, for dinner that night, that becomes my workout. other possibilities: mailing a letter, getting cash from the bank.
