Comfort/emotional eating replacement ideas ...

Hi Guys,

With winter fast approaching and christmas looming it is the season for feeling down and stressed out. I am a notoriously bad comfort/emotional eater and was thinking of ways to break the habit this year and hopefully replace food with something else.

I seem to be fine during the day while I am at work - there are no temptations, but I am at my most vulnerable when I get home from work. I seem to eat because I've had a bad day, argument with BF, because I am home alone, boredom etc So I have decided that everyday when I get home, instead of sticking my head in the fridge/cupboards/tuck box and stuffing myself with cr*p, I will go straight home and run myself a nice hot bath. It will warm me up, chill me out and pass my danger time nicely.

What will you do to replace yours?

I love dancing and I teach Ceroc Jive to beginners. When I get home in the evening after collecting Jessica from the Child Minder, we out on music and have a dance around the lounge like loonies!!!

Also catching up on my laundry and cleaning - need to keep the house extra specially clean now its on the market for viewing.

ooohh I love dancing around - that's such a good idea and it's a feel good thing too isn't it!! Might even stretch to my all time favourite immaculate collection by madonna and allow myself a make-shift microphone (aka hairbrush)!! Not that I'm a proper little 80's baby or anything!!

Love it, thanks Mrs v!!

Lol!!!

Glad I can be of some help!!

I love dancing to anything, but at the moment Jessica loves - Gwen Stefani (Sweet Escape) - or as known in our house the Wee woo song, Amy Winehouse (Rehab) -aka No no no song, Scissor Sister (I dont feel like dancing) - aka do do do song, Mika (Big Girls you are beautiful) - aka - Biff irl you are beufiful and that Suicidal Song - aka Cecill song- cant remember who sings it......well I know there is no accounting for taste, but she is 2 after all!!!

Well, as my number one idea has already gone (hot bath. Mmm, bubble bath and scented candles...) I'm a bit stumped.

There's always sex, I s'pose... :D

I am the same when getting in from work.

Lately I have been getting straight on with housework - doing the dishes that have built up during the day, and hoovering etc. I find that first half hour is the worst.

I have been known to go to bed for half an hour or so. But generally, I get changed, take off my make-up (saves me doing that just before bed) and collect any stray laundry (going back to the housework thing) and keep myself pottering about until I can have a shake/soup without wanting to eat the contents of the fridge whilst making it.

Distraction is the only thing that works for me. Plus I get my chores done without too much pain!

I have just started to do a scrapbook for my little boy of all his "first" moments over the last 4 years.
We seem to have about 3500 piccies just stuck on a disk on the computer so though i would get something done with them.

Its quite emotional though lol... I just end up blubbing :cry:

Poundland do some fantastic kits for £1.00 lol.
And loads of other bits of ribbons papers and lettering.

I let my little boy do his own when we have been out anywhere for the day.

Mind you I got my scrapbooking from a company called creative memories, was a bit pricey but hopefully it will be a mini sort of heirloom
