Feed vs. Eat

I have noticed with a little help I no longer eat. I feed like a animal. Mowing down what is in my trough with little thought to the actual enjoyment of what I am consuming. No enjoyment, just fuel for the machine. I am going to do something drastic for the month of April. I am going to eat every meal at the table....not the coffee table in front of the TV. My actual table, I am sure under the dust it is there somewhere. I am also flirting with the ideas of bringing back Sunday dinners.

I loved the concept of the movie the Last Supper where every week a different guest was brought over for a discussion. I promise I will not kill my guests.

I also will no longer be eating in my car.

I feel kind of weird. I am doing all of these Healthy things like not smoking or drinking soda. I am eating better working out and I am more of a hedonist now then I was before...

Even though the things I am doing now I would not have associated with pleasure before. Weird huh? I am actually enjoying life doing things I would have mad fun of you for just a little while a go.

PS. If Sunday dinners go good I will open them back up to a larger group.

Whoa... did you say soda? And you call yourself a Minnesotan!

I've noticed that I'm not eating... if there aren't other people around I just kind of forget to do it. Then I get all woozy and damn near pass out... run to the fridge... and inhale anything and everything I can. I need to sit down and eat too.

People generally eat because they are hungry, whereas you will often drink beer just to drink the beer. Its not like you are thirsty and want to quench your thirst so you drink 6 in a row or something... I rarely order more then two cokes at a time, but think nothing of going through a couple of pitchers at one sitting...

Can I be the table?

what about lunch, brian?

Weight watchers give you those same suggestions (eat at the table, pay attention to what you eat, enjoy your food, don't eat in front of the tv, etc). They work, if you can keep it going.

Now that I literally can't eat as much food as I used to I totally enjoy the taste of food more. And I hella appreciate it more too. Enjoy those full meals for me will you?

PS, am I invited to dinner too?

Brian in Mpls said...

You are def. Invited:)

I feel this is a result of an all-too-lengthy winter. We're tired. We need vitamin D in the worst way. We [read: I] smoked/drank far too often to ward off those gray skies.

I've moved on to rabbit food and grapefruit for a dose of sunshine... and the ability to, you know, fit back into my skinny pants. Because they keep 'shrinking in the dryer.' Even when I don't wash them. Odd, really. No doubt involves a thread-count conspiracy of some kind. xoxo

- bravo, btw. Refreshing to know some of us are progressing toward a more adult existence at least.
