Mindful eating... and not in the way that your thinking!!

Tuesday, January 22, 2013

I went to a Mindfulness Meditation class last night emoticon with my Fam and the instructor led us through several mediations which was really good. If any of you have every tried emoticon , it pretty difficult to calm your mind. emoticon

So he started speaking about being mindful of your breathes (I'm breathing in, I'm aware of breathing in, I breath out, I'm aware of breathing out) So he goes on to explain other times when you can be mindful of what your doing... long story short. I'm in this class and thought about how I go through most of my day NOT being mindful EXCEPT FOR WHEN I'M EATING!!!! emoticon If I'm eating one of my favorite meals, I don't want to talk on the phone, I don't want to talk in person, I don't want to do anything but simple sit in silence, eat and enjoy every single bite.

This realization in class last night was like a brick to the forehead emoticon . I am a straight FOOD ADDICT!!! I've known it, but when I thought about how mindful I like to be while eating... that really just said it all.

Can anyone relate?

    I also am a stress eater and eat when I'm tired. At least knowing this we can work toward beating the habit!

    I think this is more common than anyone realizes and why Spark works so well for so many! It is a great reminder for each of us.

    Don't you hate it when that little light bulb goes on some times? emoticon emoticon I can't say I relate specifically, but I did have a realization (and an other reminder last night) that I am a stress/boredom eater. I didn't think I was until I realized I go to the cabinet for something when I am anxious, stressed, angry, and even just bored. Those self-admissions can be hard but once we *know* we are then given the opportunity to make the changes. I am not successful all of the time, but at least now I am aware.
