Saturday, October 07, 2017      14 comments

I'm tired, Sparkadillos. I'm tired. Stressors at work are messing with my sleep. I was up at 3:00 this morning. I dozed a little bit a couple of times this morning, but it wasn't enough to make up for the early wake up. I didn't have t... Read more

This time around with Beck, I am not expecting perfection. I missed yesterday. I knew the lesson was eat slowly and mindfully. I didn't read it or do the exercises that go with it. I did, however, stick to my nutrition plan, I ate everything sit... Read more
My Life as a Dawg, Credit where credit is due

Quick blog, Sparkers. Eat sitting down was a roaring success yesterday. I had the insight that sitting in the car does NOT qualify as eating sitting down. No more eating in the car. Not that I do it often, but if I am traveling and I need a... Read more

Today is Day 3 for the Beck Diet Solution: Eat Sitting Down. This is tough. I know that eating is NOT an automatic response, but it sure seems like taking a quick bite of toast at the kitchen counter top is an automatic response. I don't re... Read more

Life got very hard, Sparkeroos. Very hard. I'm not going into the details because it's boring and it'll lead us all down the path of "Poor, poor Dawg. Life isn't fair." I don't like that path at all. I go down it all too much and in this particu... Read more

Given my medical history, I spend a fair amount of time reading about low-back pain, pain management, the causes of pain, the treatment of pain. You get the picture. Before we go any further, Sparkers, I am going to state the abundantly obv... Read more

Oh Sparkeroos. I've had so much crammed in my head that I don't know where to begin. I spent a few minutes sorting it out and decided that I have a series of blogs coming out (3 or 4?) where I sort out my Crazy Monkey Brain. First up. The C... Read more

I pestered ONEKIDSMOM and ALICIA363 for a race report for the Running of the Bulls (or was it Buffalos?) 5 miler. I guess I owe you all one, too, from the 5K from yesterday. As you know, I didn't set out to race it. I haven't run a lick sin... Read more
