October 16, 2013 Spark Coach Challenge
Wednesday, October 16, 2013
Today's challenge is particularly hard for me. The challenge is to slow down and savor your food. I am a fast eater. When I was working I had 30 minutes to eat lunch. Well, I am not proud to say I was also a smoker at the time. If I ate quickly I could smoke a couple cigarettes and since we had a designated smoking area that might be the only ones I would get in 8 - 10 hours.
I am pleased to say I gave up smoking many years ago. It just got way too expensive. It wasn't even because of my health! Sad, but true. Anyway, I am no longer around cigarettes as I choose not to go to places where people smoke. It is a lot easier now than it used to be. Now that people can't smoke in many public buildings or other places.
So today I will slow down when I eat. It won't be easy. I also will not eat in my car. That is an even bigger challenge for me!! Wish me luck!
