Day 4 and 5 of Conscious Eating



Not Making Conscious Choices Can Lead To Despair

Eek, my son's young chihuahua is crying in much the same way that a baby cries when Mommy leaves her for the first time with a strange granny... piercing my ears.  Yes, I offered him a teeny-tiny piece of cheese (Zoe's fave treat) and when he didn't snap it up, I ate it... so there goes my perfect record of eating consciously over these past five days.

But apart from succumbing to the cheese (and cheap cheese at that), I have not been hungry or craving, eating as we do of such wonderful fresh organic garden produce at this time of the year.  Who needs wheat, dairy or processed sugar?

Well, I am a bit rattled, I admit-- we had an earthquake this afternoon in the broad daylight of a beautiful summery day-- and it measured 6.4 on the Richter Scale.  That sounds impressive but in reality it was not very frightening at our home... felt a little like being motion sickness, a sort of rolling-on-the-river vertigo.  My neighbour across the street told me that she actually found it rather fun... I wouldn't go quite that far.  This is all to say that perhaps the cheese was just a way to de-stress?  Nah, even I can't accept that.

In 1/2 an hour we are scheduled to see our granddaughters online... yay!  I had better go and consciously eat some of the splendid supper I've put together.  Happy Weekend!
