Spark Coach Exercise: Out of Sight Out of Mind!
Saturday, January 23, 2021
Needless to say it does work! I would be embarrassed if one of my spark friends came to my house and opened my bedroom closet doors. I have a stash of snacks in there. In my bureau in the top drawer you would find candy. Fortunately candy is not a huge trigger food. Closet houses crackers or sometimes cookies or nuts.
I really have to watch myself when I am at Costco. To walk on by and leave the goodies in the big box store. It helps when I shop with Thoms1. She is really self disciplined. Sometimes I will buy something when I am with her and she will not call me on it. Just give me a look with raised eyebrows and leave it at that.
One of us will always ask how'd you do today (meaning on the scale). If I say a gain I will add, I know why. The sodium always comes back to haunt me. Fortunately, it doesn't happen that often and it hasn't led me to a more than 5-10 minute binge since I have been with sparkpeople. I am a firm believer in, make sure you log it in your tracker! Do better with your next bite.
So Coach, Out of sight is out of mind! At least with me. Thank you all my spark friends and coaches for giving me good insights.
