Step away from the pantry...

Guilty!  We all are.  We eat for plenty of reasons.  That whole "eat to live, don't live to eat" mantra is a nice thought, but food is used and abused by us all.  When you find yourself eating out of boredom, or to manage stress, or to satisfy a craving (that isn't true hunger): pull out a 'go to' list of 10 things you can do that aren't eating.  If you are having a hard time compiling your list, here are some examples that might work for you:

1) Go for a walk
2) Floss
4) Call a friend (or your trainer)
5) Stop procrastinating (I'm sure there is something you've been putting off)
7) Make a list
          a. Do something on the list
          b. Do something else on the list
8) Trim, shape & polish (if applicable) you nails
          a. Go get your nails done
          b. Take me to get my nails done :)
I love this look for fall:

9) Clean out your closet
          a. Closet clean? Clean out a drawer.
          b. Drawers clean?  Clean out make-up bag//toiletry bag.
          c. Everything spotless at your house?  Offer to help a friend :)

10) Play an instrument? Practice.
         a. Don't play an instrument?  Learn how to play one.
         b. Not interested in that? Listen to some music.
         c. Make a new playlist for the car or your next workout.
11) Plan your dream vacation (even if you aren't planning on going on it for years!  Studies show that    just planning it can make you happy)

Maybe book a room here:

There you go.  I even gave you a bonus idea.  

Your turn!  Share your ideas!  What would you put on the list?
