It got me!

Wednesday, January 27, 2010

Well really, I got me. I was going to have just a couple spoonfuls of ice cream. That was the plan. Until I walked over to the computer with what was left of the carton. I looked down only to realize that I'd eaten about a cup and a half of ice cream. And then I started thinking about victimization and ownership of your actions. My first thought was to say I was a victim of mindless eating. But that's not quite true, is it?

Mindless eating didn't attack me in any way. I promoted it by not paying attention to what I was doing, and by not putting the ice cream in a bowl first. It's really a phrase that should be struck from a person's vocabulary.

Just as eating three servings of ice cream is not healthy; promoting (even subconsciously) an unwarranted feeling of victimization is not healthy.

    Being mindful is a good thing to remember. It really does make a difference in what and how much we eat as well as how much we enjoy and savor our food! Thanks for writing this and reminding me to pay attention to what I'm consuming in the moment.
