Diet Hack: Box It Up

This is what half my dinner from last night looked like when I got it out to warm it up today. I ate this half for lunch after skipping breakfast. I felt too full even so. That makes it extra embarrassing to admit that I ordered the same meal a couple of weeks ago and finished the whole thing in one sitting.

This brings us today’s diet version of the life hack. Box that extra food up before you start eating. It’s too easy to start talking and fail to notice when you’ve eaten too much. It might be a little embarrassing to ask for a to go box before you’ve ever lifted your fork, but that’s nothing compared to eating four cups of pasta at once.

Defining Moment: #reverb10 Day 28

Today’s prompt:  Describe a defining moment or series of events that has affected your life this year.

What to say? What to say? I’ve already talked about the new baby in the family. I’ve already talked about buying a camera. I’ve probably talked about going on a diet. It is getting harder for me to think up things I haven’t already said in response to previous reverb prompts. I think I’ll just have to dial back to earlier in the year then.

One defining moment for me this year was reading Barbara Kingsolver’s Animal, Vegetable, Miracle. I put together a photo essay about my response to the book. I’ll just let the photo essay be my reverb today.
