Today's challenge: spend 20 min. eating each meal

Saturday, November 22, 2014

I wish it had been any day but today. I tried really hard at breakfast & improved at eating more slowly, savoring & chewing each bite. I forgot to eat lunch before the funeral where I was setting up, serving & cleaning up the refreshments. I zipped into a grocery store to buy items to eat while preparing for the guests: 2 small greek yogurts & a banana so I wouldn't be "attacked" by 20 kinds of cookies, etc. But I had to eat very quickly & get to work. Dinner...well, I spread it out over 20 min..but it was more like 1 item at a time than a purposeful, slow consumption of a meal. So I did poorly at the challenge. Will try again tomorrow. But I'll have to give myself a poor rating for today's effort. Darn.

    Great challenge. Be patient with yourself. Just keep at it. At least you're already eating mindfully. I need to take up this challenge with you. I've been trying to slow my eating since I was a child, with my mother reminding me to, "Slow down." Like Lisa193, I like eating my food hot, so I eat fast.

    How about if I join you? I'll respond to your posts to follow your progress, and let you know of my progress. We'll help each other.

    You're practising and you will have to practise again and again before you get it right. That's what I would tell anyone learning how to throw pots on the wheel. It's the same for us when we want to change a behaviour or learn a new hobby, right?
    Keep on keepin' on grrl!

    Eating slowly is hard - I like my food hot and if I eat too slowly it gets cold..
