I'm a shoveler. I eat for speed. This probably stems from childhood. As a kid, we never had sit down meals. I always just ate as quick as possible so I could just go back to what I was doing. My husband is really really quiet to and doesn't usually have too much to say so we usually eat in silence, if we even eat together, so there's nothing to do but eat. So this week, my goal is to take more than 15 minutes to eat. To see if slowing down will allow me to notice that I've filled up. Yesterday was hard. I had to time myself just so I would know how long 15 minutes was. I already went walking once this week and have plans to walk on Thursday and all day Friday. I walked over 11000 steps yesterday. And I have new people checking out my blog which makes me feel less alone! Welcome everyone new!!
