YOUR WEEKEND CHALLENGE... If you choose to accept it...

Is to eat AT LEAST one meal a day (preferably dinner) at your table... without any TV or electronics. GASP! We know, you likely only enjoy eating if you're being entertained, but think of your significant other as your entertainment for the night.

Here are the benefits:

1 - Instead of just the highlights, you'll get to know about the little things that happened in their day. This can lend a lot of insight into how they're truly feeling about life. And this is all about getting to know each other and being a team.

2 - You are practicing the big C word... Communication. You may sit in silence for a lot of it only serenaded by the sound of chewing, but the more you do it, the better you'll get. Pretty soon you'll have plenty to talk about and actually look forward to that time when you can enjoy dinner, your partner, and some conversation.

3 - This just might help you eat healthier! Without the distraction of television you have to pay attention to what you're eating. You're not mindlessly shoveling food in your mouth. You'll be more aware of when you're full. So really, eating dinner at the table with your significant other just might make you more healthy!
