Hi Donna.. I had to google hara hachi bu. What a focused and mindful way to eat. I like. How's Sydney? I'm an ex- Sydney sider who ended up on the other side of the planet. How I miss Vietnamese soups from Marrickville. You've got some razor focus going on..

yep iphone pics of my own food - thanks for that. not bad for the old 3GS huh - it is still going strong.

rice balls not really a usual fixture in my diet ... they were from my local japanese tapas takeaway joint, ordered a lot on Sat night. their menu description “panko rice balls w blue cheese, shitake mushroom + a little wasabi mayo” . Quite tasty !

you can go nuts and get into all the social networking side of it too which i haven't - lots of groups for various fitness interests/goals etc which seem to be very active.

hi Deb you got it with the word mindful - Lean Eating is a whole 12 month program and that is it right there. the 80% (hara hachi bu) is a pretty hard habit to achieve consistently. I got some of my best results during LE when I nailed it for a brief period, then slid off the slope. So it's a big goal during this challenge to get back to that place.

Sydney .. gorgeous right now, real spring weather which (along with autumn) is my favourite time of year. I'm originally from Auckland NZ, but settled in and love it here

Just a quick note too today Tue especially good - a win for me. I ended up working from home as I was called just before I was supposed to leave for the office and ended up spending all morning on a conference call. Had food prepped to take with me (containers of cut up veges) so ate as if I was at work. It's always very tempting to go out to a cafe for lunch when I'm working from home - especially after a long callout - I really do still think of indulgent meals as a reward. Especially when I'm tired. While I don't want to be one of these people who just thinks of food as fuel, there is still some shifting of this concept to do.
