Mini-Challenge this week: "Be a Mindful Eater"

emoticon emoticon The way you eat your food is directly linked to how much you eat. If you eat on autopilot (grabbing breakfast as you're headed out the door, eating lunch while working at your desk, or having dinner in front of the TV), it just doesn't register how much you're actually consuming.

Being a "mindful eater," you're concentrating on the flavor of your food & savoring ever bite. Eating slowly allows your body to register fullness sooner and fully enjoy what you're eating. And "mindful eaters" tend to stress less about what they are eating period.

Thank you for stopping by Vicki. Yes those purple flowers are wild canterbury bells, some of the many wildflowers I have been seeing on my hikes. Those were my favorite.
Hope works gets less stressful very soon. Hope you have a wonderful weekend. Have fun with Arden today, I know you will :) Raining here, we are happy for it though. emoticon

Seriously, the main thing I feel now is lightened, like I've left a burden behind. Now I need to leave behind the 5 pounds I put on this winter! Such a small amount, but I've been so stuck. I think a combination of boredom eating and lack of consistent exercise. I know you don't have time for boredom eating - more like stress eating! Keep posting, I miss your presence.
