A Challenge Anyone?

It's been a while since we've had a challenge...

This one is inspired by myself. Yesterday I was driving down the road, calling a friend, and stuffing left over gold fish snacks into my mouth. In the midst of if all I thought, "Gross...what am I doing?" I wasn't hungry, I wasn't enjoying the drive, the convo, or the fish.

So, the Challenge is...One Thing at A Time. Specifically, No Driving and Eating/No Phoning and Eating/No TV and Eating. That's right...just Eat when you Eat...you might enjoy the eat a bit more.

Oh, for ONE WHOLE MONTH! Let's start next week, July 19th until August 19th.

...and winner gets a little prize from me :) How do you win? Let me know on August 19th if you completed the challenge faithfully. I will then randomly select a winner from those finishers.

Comment if you're in!

I'm in!! Sounds perfect-it's also been proven a great way to bond with family over an actual meal and/or snakc than in front of the t.v., on the phone, in in front of the monitor.

I'M READY!

I am in. For an entire week I will pause and eat consciously. I will plan my food then sit and really enjoy the food I eat ....no nibbling every time I see food.

I just watched the Oprah show and she was discussing the book Women Food and God and they were talking about this same thing, no distractions when you eat to that he are in the now and conscience about what you are doing, not on autopilot. I plan on reading the book, sounds like a good idea

I'm in too - we just started a new diet plan, and it doesn't lend itself much to eating snacks at random times. Only problem is I scheduled ourselves in some binge days so we don't go crazy. We'll see how it goes!

I am tipping I can't win a prize (Australian) but I am definitely going to do it!

The tele is always on when my OH and I eat... no more :)

I am in, although this isn't a huge problem for me. Most of the time I eat at meal time sitting down. Does chasing after a 2 year old while eating count??
