Thursday Thirteen #7

Since I am trying to lose some weight and I need to cut back on my snacking habit, I decided to make my list about things I can do instead of having a snack.

1. Take a walk.
2. Go to the mall- and avoid the food court.
3. Clean the house.
4. Run errands.
5. Pay the bills.
6. Work on my scrapbooking.
7. Plan a vacation.
8. Watch a movie.
9. Take Hailey to the park.
10. Call my mom.
11. Email a friend.
12. Do some blogging.
13. Make a list of 13 things to do instead of having a snack.

Stop by Thursday Thirteen to see the list of other participants.

Sounds like a good list of activities. I spend time on the computer or call a girlfriend.

Nicholas said...

Good advice. Do they actually make the hunger go away?

Di said...

I guess smoke a cigarette and have a glass of wine wouldn't qualify, right?

Pam said...

This is a bad week for me and snacking. Oh well....maybe next we I can use some of your ideas to do better!

Oh, my dear, that is a noble list but it doesn't sound like much of a draw when you need a snack! For me it's not the 'snack' that's the problem but the compulsive snacking and/or overeating. What about if you snack on guilt-free things so at least you get to chew - carrots, popcorn, olives (my favorite)

No. 3 is a helpful one for me, too.

good list of options! I love watching movies, but I tend to eat when I'm watching tv, so that's not a good one for me!
Thanks for sharing your ideas!
Have a great Easter weekend!

Wani said...

Great list! We should all (ok, at least I do) need to implement these!

Heheh. Had to laugh when you said you have to avoid the foodcourt. I also end up dropping by the foodcourt when I go to the mall -or grocery. But I just lost few pounds these past few weeks.

I'm getting to the point where I can't even have snacks in the house! It's getting pretty bad around here...this is a great list!!

I have been so bad with snacking. If I made a list of things to do instead of having a snack, the first item would be have two snacks.

This is good advice. I'm going to make that list right now because a carton of chocolate eggs is calling.

Mom said...

Looking forward to that phone call.

Andrea said...

Those are good ideas! :) I can't wait until it's nice enough here to start taking Tate to the park again!

Christina said...

Love the list...I need to do some of those things!!!

Happy TT

Great list sweetie.

I actually found that I want to snack more when I'm blogging so now I get a big glass of ice water before i sit down at the computer. It works wonders...especially since I don't like drinking water in the first place.
