Crazy plan for tonight

Postby SarahC » Thu Jul 12, 2007 11:17 am

I had a bit of a nutty idea while driving in my car last night....

This is Sarah's Sitting on the Kitchen Floor Challenge for tonight only (to be extended pending tonight's success):

Ok, beginning after dinner, whenever I feel the urge to eat I will immediately sit down (wherever I happen to be, it will most likely be in the kitchen :roll: ) and consider whether I am really hungry and whether I really need to eat. If I am physically hungry (highly unlikely) then I will get up and eat something. If not, I will decide on an alternative activity, and I will get up and immediately start doing that.

My kitchen floor is sooooo cold. And dirty, I can't seem to stop dropping things on it!

Wish me luck :lol:

lol what a great plan sarah if i do say so myself! if you are sitting on the floor and think of an activity why dont you get the mop and bucket and wash the floors? then you cant walk on them til theyre dry and its a good workout and you get a nice clean floor :)

Great pledge Sarah. I like your idea, everytime I try & sit on the floor the kids would tackle me or the dog think's it's playing time.

Thanks guys! Maybe cleaning the floor is a good idea. I can always tell how good/bad I have been during the week by what's on my floor. I have been eating stuff like cereals, bran, protein crunch etc directly from the box and invariably some falls on the floor. It's a bit of a wake up call to see the quantities when I sweep the floor :oops:

*sigh* Mixed success I'm afraid....

I went pretty well in the evening. I didn't actually sit on the floor... it's just so cold and so dirty :oops: I think that just the threat of having to sit there was enough to keep my hands out of the food after dinner! I did however sit on the couch and think about whether I needed anymore food. I had an awful craving for almonds. So, I decided not to eat them straight away. I wrote up my food diary and added up my kJ's for the day and found I had a few spare.... then I decided to eat the almonds lol.

However, it all fell apart when I woke up an hour after going to sleep (standard for me!!), walked right into the kitchen and ate two mountain bread wraps with a tin of tuna in each of them, without a second thought! :evil:

So, not feeling the best today. I am sure that if I could spend one night without eating that I would feel so much better in the morning!

I am going to extend this pledge tonight and over the weekend.

And, I am also going to add this...
OLD HABIT: Wake up, go to kitchen, eat whatever I feel like, sometimes put the TV on, go to the toilet, go back to bed.
NEW HABIT: Wake up, go to the toilet, sip some water, back to bed, and don't even think about walking into the kitchen (unless I was silly and left my water glass in there!)

Well I decided that my kitchen floor was far too cold to sit on :oops: But, what I have done, is I have designated one couch in my living room to be the "no eating" couch. So, when I don't want to eat, I sit on that couch and watch tv for a bit, then go off and do something else... well that's the way it's meant to work anyway! It kinda forces me to sit at my table (which is where one is meant to eat anyway!) as the other couch is just that little bit further away lol.

So far it's not really working, but the plan has potential :P
