So..the alternative (and deep down I knew this all of the time as did some of you fellow bloggers who told me so while I was moaning many posts ago) is exercise. I need to get out of my chair, out of this shop when it is closed and onto my bike or feet or whatever I can manage REGULARLY. In the past exercise has been the one thing that pushed the pounds off when I was stuck. Exercise is the one thing that helped me curb my desire to stuff down sweet stuff. Exercise burned calories that I sometimes failed to resist during the day.
I don't need to run...I don't need to do a marathon or even a wild man crazy triathlon. I just need to move a little more everyday. Run up and down my stairs 6 or seven time. Walk for a few miles or ride my bike for a few more. Changing jobs cut down on a huge amount of daily exercise for me (about 2 miles walk per day). having the store in my basement has locked me into the house a whole lot more than I normally would have been before. Only I can do something about that.
