There can be times when you have absolutely nothing to do. Or maybe there is plenty to do, but you decide to munch on food instead. Here I will list 25 activities that you can do instead of running back and forth from the kitchen treating your stomach like a wastebasket.
1. Go for a jog.
2. Find a scenic route nearby and go for a hike.
3. Read a book. Don’t have any? Go to the library.
4. Write in a journal. You could even start a weight loss journal.
5. Start a YouTube channel. Share your journey with others.
6. Start an Instagram weight loss profile. This definitely kept me busy and motivated.
7. Start rock climbing. Or any other hobby that challenges you physically.
8. Join a book club. Meet up with others and share interests and ideas over coffee.
9. Volunteer at an organization. I’m cleaning up a town near me this weekend. Helping the city and getting a workout.
10. Make a workout on your own. Share it with others!
11. Start a workout plan from Bodybuilding.com.
12. Go grocery shopping. (Only if you need food.) Take your time picking out items and checking the nutrition labels.
13. Meet up with a buddy and put them through a workout.
14. Go rollerblading, or roller skating. Both are very fun activities!
15. Make up a new recipe. Snap pictures of it and show others your skills.
16. Buy a camera. Doesn’t have to be outrageously expensive. Go for a walk at a nearby park and get a workout and snap some pictures at the same time.
17. Go to your local gym and do their workout classes they provide. I know plenty of people that never even bother to check these out.
18. Learn how to sew or knit. Take a class nearby.
19. Talk to your friends about how working out and eating healthy has changed your life. Inspire others to embark on the healthy lifestyle.
20. Read about transformation stories online. These are incredibly inspiring and always keep me motivated.
21. Gather some magazines and cut out people who you look up to. Cut out quotes, clothes, anything that inspires you. Stick these onto a ‘dream board’ and look at it every day to get motivated.
22. Make a meal plan for yourself. Stick to it for 30 days.
23. Go to Bodybuilding.com and come up with a workout plan for yourself. This site has endless amounts of different workouts you can do.
24. Look up DIY projects online. You’ll be surprised how many things you make with objects you already have in your house.
25. Write down a list of why you are doing this and what inspires you. I have a list and I always look at it when I am not feeling my absolute best.
What activities keep you focused and away from eating foods that have no nutritional value?
