I’ve been trying to follow the ‘golden rules’ – but I’ve been so busy this week, getting ready for the birth of third child. Tomorrow morning, I’ll go back to really focusing on how I eat and eating consciously. We were fully expecting the baby to be born this week – our other two were born two weeks early. Apparently, the new baby is just fine, and has decided to wait a few more days.
Hard lessons I had to learn –
1. Following the golden rules requires a table, a knife, a fork, and the ability to sit and think.
2. I cannot follow the rules AND drive.
3. It IS possible to eat out and follow the rules, but it is very, very difficult. Better to have a bigger meal at home and then a smaller meal with friends.
I’ll admit – I thought that I could ‘modify’ the rules – and return to eating in front of the television or while driving – and I can’t. I’m glad I figured this out and now I’m ‘back’ to following the rules, strictly.
