    I think I may have tried coffee once in my life but I'm not sure.

    Having that list sounds like a great idea. I also eat out of boredom, so I totally get what you mean. If I feel like I want to eat because of that, I usually try to either read and/or get ahead in my work or do something that makes me feel good about myself like paint my nails, have a spa day, etc. I don't have a lot of time to think much about eating during my busy season, but when things slow down, pampering myself has been my go-to method. And as a teacher, I know from personal experience that you probably really need it anyway!

    I have noticed the past few days I have a habit of eating out of boredom. I was not hungry yesterday, yet I went out to dinner with my family. Same thing this evening. I have also caught myself sitting on the couch eating junk and watching t.v. or surfing the internet out of boredom.

    Interesting phenomenon. I think I will need to think of a list of activities to do when I am bored to avoid eating out of not having anything else entertaining to do.

    I know the feeling @ArizonaToast. Mindless eating is a hard habit to kick. What has helped me is training myself to give 100% focus to eating. What I mean is, when I eat, I eat at the table and focus on eating. I"ve stopped eating in front of the TV or in my car. I've stopped eating while looking at my phone (so hard!). I treat eating like it's own special event. It has helped me a lot.

    I fasted until 11 today without a problem. Lunch was a delicious philly cheesesteak pita wrap. One of my daughter's friends is having a birthday party tonight, so I might be able to get away without eating anything for dinner. I want to see if I can fast until tomorrow's lunch.

    You can do it!

    Okay. I didn't fast at all at the birthday party. It seems whatever my plan is....If I post it on here, I seem to not follow through. I will post after the fact.

    You can do it. Just get refocused!

    I seem to have the same problem whatever plan I put out, it seems I am never able to follow through with. I think you are doing good to post it after the fact.

    Sometimes I have that issue, too! Sometimes telling people really helps hold me accountable, and then other times it feels overwhelming that I might let someone down, and I fall off. The tough part is I don't know which one I will get!
    Good for you to recognize that and adjust accordingly!

    How's your fasting going today?
  • ArizonaToastArizonaToast Posts: 231Member Member Posts: 231Member Member
    Did not wait until 11am today. Had a Starbucks bottled mocha. These were compensatory calories as I felt I "needed it" for my first day back at school and was worried over a morning meeting I had (which went just fine btw). At least I ate my packed lunch instead of running out for fast food. Will definitely close my eating window before 7.
