What’s Your Eating Average?
Having your regular daily routine turned on its head, being confined to home, creates a situation that holds the potential for weight loss disaster. So a suggestion for a bit of weight loss success at the end of this confinement period.
Since sporting events are put on hold, let’s do our own event based on baseball batting averages. Imagine that every time you make an eating decision that you are like a batter at home plate. Eat something healthy, you record a hit. Eat something unhealthy, you record an out. Keep a written record of your times at the plate so that you can calculate and keep track of your eating average. For example, if you have 8 eating decisions to make in a day and you choose healthy foods 5 of those times, you’re eating average for that day is 625 (5 divided by 8 = .625). The highest you can score is 1,000.
This makes every eating occasion a more mindful experience. You have an opportunity to improve your eating average every time you make an eating decision. Every time you eat something, record it as a hit or an out. You should then calculate your average score each day and calculate and record your weekly average as well. Post your results in a place that you will see them often – the refrigerator or pantry door. The goal is to strive to improve your eating average with every eating experience and try to get as close to 1,000 as you can.
Involve a friend and have a little friendly competition for the best eating average every day or every week. This is a simple, yet powerful awareness activity designed to make you more mindful of those moments of truth that make or break a diet.
