What a week!

Saturday, April 14, 2012

What a week I've had, busy, busy, busy.... Mostly all good things including the birth of my beautiful grandson but just so many things going on, first little grandson ended up in the NICU for breathing problems so daily hospital visits and daily exercise, meetings every day, grandkids, housework and who knows what else. But here is the kicker. Hopefully I'm not alone in this. Busy = mindless eating. I've always admired my thin friends who say they are "too busy to eat" but it makes no sense to me because for me busy equates to eating fast, eating while I'm doing something else i.e. driving, emailing, tv watching, whatever but never being "too busy to eat". And the funny part is that as I eat so quickly I don't even taste what I'm eating. And my diet is usually sidetracked because of this.

So what do I need to learn? Slow down and enjoy and experience what I'm eating. Don't let busy-ness keep me from making good decisions about what to eat. Yep, this is a learning journey and no matter how long I'm at this, I keep learning something.

    Congratulations on the gift of a new grandson! Mindfulness in eating and slowing down while eating is something I need to work on also. I get so mad when I inhale my food and then realize that I did not get to experience the sheer pleasure of it. It's always an after-thought and I need to make it a before-thought so I can change it.

Enjoy that little grandbaby!!!!

    CONGRATS on Tobias, how EXCITING!

You're got it.... "Slow down and enjoy and experience what I'm eating. Don't let busy-ness keep me from making good decisions about what to eat. Yep, this is a learning journey and no matter how long I'm at this, I keep learning something."

You sound like you're in a good space, just keep reminding yourself.

Enjoy the balance of your weekend & enjoy that beautiful grandson.
