10 GOOD Choices on the ready!!

“It is our choices, Harry, that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.”   – J.K. Rowling

With almost every weight loss coaching client there is a conversation early in our work about a binge eating situation usually when they have downtime in life.   Since I don’t believe in “free foods or “cheat days” to shove their discomfort into I had to direct people to good choices.  It is important that the choices are good for them, for their moments where the indulging is eminent and so I ask for a list.

What are 10 things you can do all by yourself to make yourself calm/happy/full/fulfilled?

For me today (it changes often) here’s my list of good choices rather than taking down time to snack:

1)   Spend time improving my garden

2)   Chopping vegetables to make something yummy, for later

3)   Check the Linked In of my cousin who is rebranding herself and make a positive notes in cyber space

4)  Listen to my best friends’ incredibly talented daughter’s  podcast http://www.rrpod.com/hilarious-online-reviews-out-loud-podcast and laugh till my side aches (hey it’s core work)

5)   Put pictures in my children’s photo albums

6)   Go for a walk

7)   Make a new playlist

8)   Clean a drawer with the intention of giving 5 items to goodwill

9)   Leave a positive voicemail for a friend

10)  Read one of the 4 books my husband is sure I will love!  (and I will, I just haven’t made time…)
