This week’s habit is Slowing Down. It is about mindful eating. Have you ever opened a package of cookies, meaning to eat only one, and suddenly you notice that you’ve eaten the whole box? Our mind takes time to register that our stomachs are full, and slowing down can help with this.
I am honestly VERY bad with this. I work while I eat lunch because it’s the only time of the day I have to answer emails (and yes, I mean work emails), other than in the car ride to/from work. I even work sometimes when I’m eating dinner!
I’m trying not to eat dinner in front of the computer, though. It’s really hard if you live alone. I crave sound from my tv or from my computer. Eating in silence is pretty sad! Oh well, I guess it helps me eat less!
This week’s weigh in: 67.4 kg / 148.6lbs (+0.2 kg)
AGHHHH another gain!!! This is really, really difficult, especially since I’m always not feeling great these days! I know it’s the food here. Ever since I stopped eating out, I’ve stopped eating delicious Japanese food. It is increasing my stress!!!!
