Today we talk about a great tool called the Kitchen Safe that enables you to lock away those items that you crave (cookies, twinkies, Reese Cups) and you can set a time from 1 minute to 10 DAYS. The Kitchen Safe XL is 5.5" Width x 5.5" Length x 10.4" Height. So you can hold chips, cookies, or (and this could make it very useful) TOYS, REMOTE CONTROLS, PHONES.
So when your child misbehaves, you can now lock their device in the kitchen safe. You turn the dial to the time you need, and then, THERE IS NO OVER-RIDE. So when the child cries to you and says, "I need my remote control for my game" you have no control. You can't over-ride it. "I guess you should have listened to your parents. It's a little thing I call CONSEQUENCES.
The one "negative" side effect is the Kitchen Safe is $59 at Amazon.
which seems a little steep, but on the other hand. If it was inexpensive, you might be tempted to smash it. It's a little less expensive on their website at www.thekitchensafe.com
As the year comes this way, don't go out of the gate at 200 mph, hurt yourself, and then quit. Start focusing on ONE thing you can do this week that would be a step in the right direction. Practice doing it. Then the following week do one more thing. For me, I need to go to bed. When I stay up later I eat more. Even if I'm eating healthy, more calories are more calories. Sleep would be better.
My cousin turned me on to a saying, "It's better to want what you don't have (chips, cookies, etc) then to have what you don't want (20 extra lbs). So yes, cravings suck. But being over-weight sucks more. It's better to want what you don't have then to have what you don't want.
Thanks so much for a great year. Thanks for all the support!
