Beck Day Three: Eat Sitting Down
Tuesday, October 03, 2017      24 comments

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

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

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

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

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

Back From My Break
Sunday, September 24, 2017      24 comments

DH and I have just returned from a week away. We had a lovely time, staying in our usual fall haven -- and did not bird (much) or kayak (at all) to give my broken foot an optimal opportunity to heal. Lots of reading (more Elizabeth Strout... Read more
