Beginning to Stop

Saturday, July 26, 2014

Today is a response to the Coach's challenge to sit at the table chew my food slowly and savor each bite. End mindless and rushed eating. This is a life-sustaining challenge for me.

I live on my own. My meals are very seldom thought-out and prepared in advance. I usually eat in front of the TV and, I hate to say, sharing bits with my dog. To make matters worse, I graze and do not prepare a decent meal.This habit is toxic for both me and my beloved pet.
Today I shall plan and prepare my meals for myself. I shall chew slowly and savor my endeavors. Most important of all. I shall sit at a beautifully laid-out table to eat.
No scraps for my beloved pet.
Today is also to begin a FOOD JOURNAL, a journal to accountability! I feel this is the final piece of the puzzle for me.
One step at a time to a new life, Dear Lord. .

    it is very difficult when we live alone and need to prepare meals..we tend to graze don't we. I live with my husband and he is very ill..most of the time he does not want to eat.. I find myself cooking something from the microwave and sitting in front of the computer to eat it..not good
