My efforts to disrupt my reading-while-eating habit have met with mixed results so far. I had two successful days in a row of managing my mid-day portions, but I couldn't bring myself to leave the book in another room. The success was in committing to a specific lunch and eating only that amount. I just can not seem to relax without the book.
For the coming week, I'm going to try making myself a cup of tea or a glass of cider vinegar tonic (a tablespoon of Bragg's apple cider vinegar with a couple of drops of stevia in a tall glass of cold water) and reading my book while I sip my beverage, then put the book away for my meal.
The only exercise I got this week was a hike with the kids. It was a nice amount of exercise, and if I could do that three times a week it would have been great. Next week I will exercise at home, using my DVDs, the Kinect, or the Wii, at least three times.
I'm not thrilled to be posting these, but perhaps it will spur me to not cheat for next week:
Weight: 161 pounds
Narrow part of my waist: 31 inches
Hips: 41 inches
Thighs: both are 23.75 inches
I'd like to lose 2.5 inches each on my waist & hips, and a full inch on each thigh.
Be kind, people, I'm having a moment here.
