Beck Day 8: Create Time and Energy
Sunday, October 08, 2017      22 comments

It takes time and energy. It takes time to shop for the "right" foods (rather than buying drive-through or pre-fab from the deli counter or the freezer aisle). It takes time to plan real food. Breakfast, lunch, supper and maybe a cou... Read more
Beck Day 7: Arrange Your Environment
Saturday, October 07, 2017      19 comments

If we build it they will come . . . And if I buy it, I will eat it. Pretty likely true. But: I don't live alone. I've gotta buy foods I don't wanna eat (roast beef, GAHHHHHH!!! not remotely tempting) -- and other foods that I D... Read more
Beck Day Six: Find a Diet Coach
Friday, October 06, 2017      28 comments

I've asked people to coach me on prior Beck Treks and I've coached other people too. Do I have a coach this time? Not formally. But you -- (yes, you and you and you and you and you!!!) are my coaches. You're responding and comme... Read more
Beck Day Five: Eat Slowly and Mindfully
Thursday, October 05, 2017      25 comments

OK then: goes well with Day Three "eat sitting down" -- since it's pretty hard to eat slowly and mindfully standing up or walking around! And that eating slowly and mindfully thing is also key, absolutely. This morning (I'm heading t... Read more
Beck Day Four: Give Yourself Credit
Wednesday, October 04, 2017      22 comments

Good girl, WATERMELLEN!! This used to grate on me more than it does now. It certainly was not part of my "internalized voice" (from childhood) to acknowledge anything good about myself . . . so it felt artificial and even patronizing (like... Read more
Beck Day Three: Eat Sitting Down
Tuesday, October 03, 2017      24 comments

Now why's that so hard? Eat sitting down. Dunno. But (for me at least) it is. And when I STOP complying then I generally have a problem: with creeping weight regain. I know why it's important to eat sitting down. It makes... Read more
Beck Day Two: Choose TWO Diets
Monday, October 02, 2017      23 comments

I know, I know: plenty of us object to the term "diet". ] But oh well: we know what she means. Still: why TWO? Well, because one of them might not "work out" for whatever reason. And ANY sensible diet (nutritionally sound, red... Read more
Beck Day One
Sunday, October 01, 2017      25 comments

Weighed myself yesterday at the gym and yup: UP!! Don't like it. And sure, I'd had a high salt (but low cal) "indulgence" Friday evening. Which may explain part of it. And sure, I'd had a week off. Without so much exercise as u... Read more
Gym Workout
Saturday, September 30, 2017      23 comments

Tried the elliptical today -- 15 vigorous minutes before switching to the bike and the broken foot did not really twinge much. Then full upper and body ST workout omitting only the leg press -- and again, no complaints. By the time I get to... Read more
Spontaneous Self-Healing???
Friday, September 29, 2017      23 comments

When my car breaks down, that's always what I hope for!! Silly I know. We used my (new to me, 10 year old) Volvo station wagon for our recent "break" and DH then kindly took it to the car wash AND vaccuumed it all out AND put the mats ... Read more

Hara Hachi Bu
Tuesday, September 26, 2017      27 comments

Pre Beck reading Chapter 3 How Thin People Think introduces 8 characteristics of non "thin-thinking" people. In particular, I'm struck this time by the third of these: "You like the feeling of being full". Because: although I used to li... Read more
And Back to Work!!
Monday, September 25, 2017      11 comments

The trick will be to hold onto the benefit of the break. And to apply the wisdom of those beach warning signs. Not getting swept out by a rip tide. Swimming parallel to shore until I'm past the gap in the sandbar. Staying calm. I'... Read more
And Back to Work!
Monday, September 25, 2017      5 comments

I know I've got a busy week ahead -- with a difficult matter tomorrow (for which I need to prepare today) and a line up of appointments all week. The thing is: to hold onto the benefits of the break. To apply the wisdom of the beach ... Read more
