Yesterday I had a strange eating schedule. I had a big breakfast around 9:30, a bit too big actually. I needed to have lunch by 12:30 to leave the house in time for all of my errands and appointments. I made my lunch and ate maybe 1/4 of it and realized I wasn't hungry AT ALL. So I packed it up and took it with me, then didn't end up finishing it until I was home from all of my errands around 4pm. That was good, not eating when I wasn't hungry. Then dinner time came around and I couldn't really tell if I was hungry or not, so I snacked on some things and probably had too much. I had some success and some failure on this today. I am learning from the focus on mindfulness and will eventually master this.
Exercise: 1 mile bike ride with our dog Riley in between rain showers and nasty weather
Breakfast: Overnight oats with banana, soy milk & vanilla, tea
Lunch: PD Potato Corn Chowder with barley & Louisiana Hot Sauce, an apple
Dinner: 3 tostadas with PD Salsa Molcajete, PD Pico de Gallo Especial & PD Onion Dip, 2 cranberry orange muffins

Mindfulness: I am working very hard on this. I didn't have lunch just because the clock said I should (good). However, I did eat too much at breakfast and dinner (not so good). I want to start journaling about this topic of eating when I am not hungry and not stopping when full to see what I come up with.
I have a crazy busy schedule for the next few days, but I will journal soon and share the results. I like to do journaling with dominant and non-dominant hands (taught to me by Trisha Harner). This activates both sides of the brain and gives all sorts of great insights. I will let you know what I discover.
