Today's challenge on Spark Coach was to make my meals last 20 minutes and to not eat while watching TV or using the computer. Okay I thought I can do this. But I have been eating in front of the TV for years. In fact the only time I turn it on during the day is to keep me company while I eat. So I started out with breakfast, a bowl of cream of wheat. I did not turn the NEWS on and ate as slowly as I could putting the spoon down between bites but there was no way I could make that last 20 minutes.
Now for lunch I thought I would try to lick this thing. I started out cutting 4 stalks of celery in to bite size pieces and eating them with ranch dip. I then ate 2 slices of the fresh loaf of rye bread I bought today. I ended my meal with 6 oz of yogurt. I chewed every bite until it was much, not some thing I am use to doing. I did not turn the TV on to watch the afternoon NEWS. Well I did it I made that meal last 20 minutes.
Now I am getting ready to cook and eat dinner. I am making stir fried chicken and vegetable with steamed rice. I am putting a lot of vegetables in this meal so I can have two servings. I am only eating one cup of rice. I am going to eat every bite until it is mush. I am going to use chop sticks, some thing I am fairly good with. I am going to take sips of diet coke between every other bite. I am not turning the TV on to watch the evening NEWS. I bet this meal lasts more then 20 minutes.
I hope nothing important went on today like maybe getting a new Pope.
