Been a couple of days..
I'm not doing badly but have hit a couple of bumps along the road.
The eating slowly is going ok.. Two things, first I REALLY have to think about it or I slip back into old eating habits and I REALLY like to mix up my food.. I like a pieces of salad mixed up with some rice and meat all on the same fork.. this is NOT working to my new eating ways!
Plus I hate to admit it but stress effects my eating. STOP rolling your eyes. I know that is a no-brainer.. but I have heard of these mythical creatures that get stressed and DON'T FEEL LIKE EATING! Not me, stress sneaks up and tickles my underbelly and presto, this girl wants FOOD!!
But I guess this is what the process is all about!
I came across some more interesting stats:
A new study by Skinny Cow low fat iced desserts reveals that the average woman burns 48,000 calories a year by shopping. Other findings:
- women make up to 132 shopping trips each year and burn approximately five calories a minute or a total of 47,700 calories over a 12-month period.
- women engage in 11 shopping trips per month: two are to buy clothes; five are to buy food and four are to a local store
- 70% of women say they feel completely exhausted after a shopping spree while 60% say it's a great form of exercise.
