Default Goofy little quirks

I know you all have them. You know little things you do to keep you on your goals or to assist in eating and exercising right.

I have one that pretty much all can't use. Even me anymore but I sure wish it was.

After I was diagnosed with Type II I had a hard time controlling my eating habits. Every time I would walk by the refrigerator I had this urge to open the door and get at least something out. The best thing that happened was our refrigerator compressor went out and it was about as expensive to repair as a new one was. My wife and I moved everything out to the garage as it was cold enough to store stuff out there yet. Started looking for a new one but didn't find anything we liked that was in stock. Spring started coming around and our neighbor allowed us to use one they were not using and we kept it in the garage instead of pulling our broken one out and putting the temp on in. But you know the best thing for me was having that Mind Controlling Refrigerator in the garage. Anytime you wanted something you had to walk out to the garage. Meals meant 5 trips out to the garage. But it worked. Now you understand why I said no one can use it but hey, I wouldn't mind it if it was still out there. We did that for about 6 months.

I do the majority of the cooking in our house. But my wife and me both would go together at meal time. She would carry half and I would carry half of what we thought we needed. Our own little snacks you were on your own. My wife was great in the fact that we would park the car about a half city block away from out work and walked in. She is not diabetic but was instrumental in helping me out.

Now we're talking about combining exercise and meals. Smart move and way beyond the usual strategy of moving the armchair farther from the fridge. You're training for the Olympics or something? Enjoyed that post.

best wishes

I keep my free weights in front of the TV along with an exercise ball and some bars. On commercials I get off the couch and do 3-5 minutes of mini exercise. Never get bored that way.
