Mindless eating = eating when you’re stressed, bored, sad, or distracted.
How many times have you walked into the kitchen and stared into the fridge? I’ve done it….more times than I can count.
Over the last few years, I’ve learned to treat food as a fuel for my body. You MUST use the right kind of fuel! How do you want the machine that is your body to run? How many miles do you hope to get out of it?
Every once in a while, I still get that nagging little feeling…and I ask myself “Am I really hungry?” If not, I’ll go and grab a glass of water and find something else to do. Distraction can be a GREAT tool!
I’ve also learned to keep a food journal. Writing down what I eat, my exercise and how I feel each day helps me see progress and feel accomplishment. It also helps me stay accountable to myself. Those are two simple tips that anyone can implement into their life.
Give it a try and let me know if you see a difference. Not sure where to start? Connect with me on my Facebook page. I share tips and advice. I would LOVE to hear from you!
Peace, Love & Fitness,
