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.
