Snack Attack

I am surprisingly not sore today from my momentous 5K run last night. In fact, I can’t wait to do it again.

Still, no matter how good of a week — or even couple of weeks — that I’m having in terms of food and fitness, I still slip. Today, I decided to take a day off from working out, because I only had a little time between work and babysitting, and to be honest, I wanted to spend it relaxing. Then, I made the stupid decision to not eat dinner before I left to babysit and ended up binging on random foods. Now my stomach hurts, and I wish I would have worked out. But instead of beating myself up over it, I’ll just start fresh tomorrow.

I just stumbled on this graphic on Pinterest:

Although simple, I think it makes an awesome tool to prevent binges. Most often, I don’t consider if I’m really hungry when I start snacking. I just go for it. I like the idea of drinking a glass of water and thinking about eating fruit and vegetables before having a snack. I’m going to try it out this week.

How do you keep yourself from mindless snacking?
