Beck Solution - Day 3 - Eat While Sitting

Friday, September 11, 2015

Day 3 is proving to be a HUGE struggle for me.
Eat while sitting.
emoticon

We have an open kitchen to the livingroom, dinning area. We sit at the bar to eat dinner. The TV on the end of the bar.

There are times I barely sit on the barstool. Or sit even long enough to take a few bites, or a sip.

I am up & down on to the other side in kitchen to grab things, wipe things, pour milk, grab napkins, (taking a bite here & there) etc.

I even clear stuff into the dishwasher before my husband is done with HIS dinner.

This could take a bit. Setting up REMINDER cards on counter & fridge, by the stove. NO B-L-Ts while cooking. and I said this to hubby so he will LOVE to remind me any chance he gets.

Happy Friday..

    You have no idea what a treat is in store for you when you master this. You become calm and relaxed, and your food becomes tastier, and you get more out of it. When I started doing this I noticed that later on in the day when I thought to eat I realized that I had eaten just a little while ago, and didn't want to eat again just now. An idea that never occurred to me before I sat to eat. So do persevere with this. You ate worth it.

    Same here however you can't see the t.v from our counter. I hate it cause I love watching the news which is usually dinner time. I started buying flowers for the counter to inspire me to sit and eat. Trying to center and be calm during my meals. I almost caved and ate on the couch in front of t.v. last night. (post Cubs win t.v. coverage) Seajess is right, we deserve it sit peacefully, eating and tasting the moment.

    I fail at this almost every day. It's tough when our lives are so busy. I do think I'm getting better about it though. If I am standing while eating, I at least make sure that it's on my food plan and not mindless munching...like I used to do.

    A work in progress!

    This remains one of the very toughest things for me too.

    THIS IS HARD.
    I know that it will benefit me in the long run.
    The Chapter really makes sense - I dont account for things while standing up.
    All the little things.

    Especially when it said about: you eat one thing when going to eat something else.
    I take a bite of this, a bite of that.
    Not taking into account the damage I am doing...

    I am sitting having lunch now.
    I am trying to focus without doing other things but....

    emoticon You DESERVE this. You deserve to relax and enjoy your meal. Unless everyone else at the table is in a full body cast, I bet each one could grab his or her own things and put dishes in the dishwasher.

    emoticon Hope you take all the time you need to do this for yourself.

    emoticon So many great things flow out of this skill for me. Looking forward to hearing the benefits that you find for yourself.
