Another Habit to Break

I have a feeling alot of people have this habit:  Opening the Fridge.

Our house has a doorway next to the fridge, so I walk by the fridge ALL THE FREAKIN' TIME.  And I have gotten into this habit of opening the fridge ALL THE FREAKIN' TIME.  I am not hungry.  I don't plan to get anything out of it.  I already know what is in there (as I have already opened it 200 times).  But I still open it.

The biggest problem with it is that it allows the power of suggestion.  You open it....then you see something....then you snack.  Now, my advantage here is that my fridge is largely empty of real food most of the time.  I stink at keeping my fridge stocked.  So unless I want condiments...usually it is a fruitless exercise.

However....It is amazing how you CAN find something to eat if you try hard enough. 

Bread and butter
1 piece of deli turkey

I need to work on this one.  My electric bill will thank me.  And my waistline too!


  1. I just stocked up on fruit and veggies, hubby is starving. It is very hard for him to diet and lose weight. He just has a terrible metabolism. So this is day 5 of the diet, he is grouchy. I have taken off most of what I put on during vacation but have more to go. I really want a cookie.

  2. I do the same thing - so I have a bowl of grapes washed and ready to eat sitting in the fridge usually at all times... I will grab a handful of them ;)
