With the first week of the New Year coming to a close I thought you might be starting to feel stressed out about the changes you've been working on in your life. As I was thinking about this, low and behold...I came across "The Stress Diet"
1 piece whole wheat toast
8 oz. skim milk
4 oz. lean broiled chicken breast
1 cup steamed zucchini
1 Oreo cookie
Rest of the package of Oreo cookies
1 quart Rocky Road ice cream
1 jar hot fudge
2 loaves garlic bread
Large mushroom and pepperoni pizza
Large pitcher beer
3 Milky Way bars
Entire frozen cheesecake, eaten directly from the freezer
Replacing learned behaviors like eating, with other enjoyable things is the key. Whether it's a hobby, reading, painting your nails, writing poetry, working in the garden, or taking a bubble bath...you need to replace one behavior for another. Make a cup of tea and relax into the New Year!
