Stepping Back and Taking a Good Hard Look
Tuesday, November 17, 2009
For the last few weeks I have been stepping back and taking a good hard look at my eating habits.
My day usually starts out fairly well. I eat a healthy breakfast and lunch.
Around three in the afternoon when I get off work I start to eat and some days it seems I don't stop until about an hour before bed. Most of my eating is in front of the TV.
This HAS TO STOP.
So I have made a rule for my self.
I call it The "Dining Room Rule".
In this rule I only allow myself to eat in the dining room. Where respect and honor of my daily bread and body are observed. At the table I have positioned my self in a place where I can enjoy the flowers from my deck and the yard out the wind. I decided that I will use my good dishes and take time to enjoy my meal.
No more mindless eating in from of the TV, snacking at the kitchen counter or out of the refrigerator. There is a time and a place for every thing. I have a dining room table for a reason. I'm going to take advantage of it. Honor and respect are long over due.
