Beck Pink Reboot Day 15, Monitor My Eating
Friday, September 11, 2015      25 comments

OK then: I'm compliant with this but using the Spark nutrition tracker rather than the paper and pencil approach Beck recommends. Do wish it was possible to "mark up" my preplanned foods on the nutrition tracker: that there was a place for chec... Read more
Beck Pink Reboot Day 14, Plan For Tomorrow
Thursday, September 10, 2015      27 comments

OK, this is an "easier" day, at least for me . . . after the "hunger" and "cravings" exercises. But it's another key Beck skill: planning what I'm going to eat in advance. And sequentially this exercise reinforces the "NO CHOICE" message f... Read more
Beck Pink Reboot Day 13, Overcome Cravings
Wednesday, September 09, 2015      25 comments

I'm struck this time working through Beck how clever the organization of tasks is, day by day. She's hitting key skills in a carefully planned sequence. Yesterday's "Practice Hunger Tolerance" by skipping lunch and monitoring hunger levels... Read more
Beck Pink Reboot Day 12, Practise Hunger Tolerance
Tuesday, September 08, 2015      21 comments

(In Canada, the verb "practise" is spelled with an "s": the noun with a "c": petty rebelliousness continues unabated!!) OK then, yesterday's exercise of tracking hunger before, during, immediately after and 20 minutes after meals as an eye... Read more
Beck Pink Reboot Day 11, Differentiate Among Hunger, Desire and Cravings!
Monday, September 07, 2015      23 comments

OK, as SLENDERELLA61 tells us, we're trekking into the heart of Beck now: and no no no, that's not into the "Heart of Darkness", darkness it's not (you just overheard a sabotaging thought)! I will content my rebellious spirit instead merely by ... Read more
Beck Pink Reboot Day 10, Set A Realistic Goal
Sunday, September 06, 2015      23 comments

My goal, truly, is to maintain. I'm within a reasonable maintenance range: and rebooting helps me sustain that reasonable maintenance range. Yesterday's weight at the gym on the accurate balance beam scale was 145. Sometimes I'm lower, som... Read more
No Beck Blog Today: But, What's Up at Steady Spark?
Saturday, September 05, 2015      26 comments

Realized from yesterday's flurry of Spark Mail Messages (thanks to all and especially SLENDERELLA61!) that I've been out of sync and that it might be better for those reading blogs if all or most of us were on the same skill on the same day. So... Read more
Beck Pink Reboot Day 9, Select an Exercise Plan
Friday, September 04, 2015      22 comments

Not doing well with this. I do exercise -- but fairly informally I rack up my 1,000 minutes a month of exercise -- but a lot of it is golf and (in the winter) XC skiing. I have a gym membership, used to attend 5 mornings a week at... Read more
Beck Pink Reboot Day 8, Prepare to Diet
Thursday, September 03, 2015      29 comments

Many of us (me included) have been a bit resistant to the use of the word "diet". And in particular to the notion that dieting takes time and effort. And moreover, that dieting actually is "for life". Gotta say, though, that o... Read more
Beck Pink Reboot Day 7, Arrange My Environment!
Wednesday, September 02, 2015      21 comments

"I can resist anything but temptation": it's right there on my Spark Page and it's true. And in my view, resisting temptation is highly overrated. The ability to resist temptation gets predictably fatigued over the course of a day. ... Read more
Beck Pink Reboot Day 6, Find a Diet Coach
Tuesday, September 01, 2015      20 comments

Done!! Personally I think we are all coaching each other through this Beck Trek reboot. And: I like the concept of Beck Buddies -- less hierarchical -- which Beck introduces in Beck Blue and Beck Green. But the incomparable SLENDE... Read more
Beck Pink Reboot Day 5, Eat Slowly and Mindfully
Monday, August 31, 2015      19 comments

It takes 20 minutes to be aware that I've had enough food. (Not, to feel "full". I don't actually want to feel "full" as in "stuffed". Don't like that stuffed feeling any more . . . ). Twenty minutes in which I don't want to keep rig... Read more
Beck Pink Reboot Day 4, Give Myself Credit!
Sunday, August 30, 2015      22 comments

Well, can't give myself credit for eating every bite sitting down yesterday. Got seduced by a free sample of hemp seeds in the organic section of the grocery store yesterday. They are DELISH!! And: I bought a package -- especially ni... Read more
Beck Pink Reboot: Day 3, Eat Sitting Down
Saturday, August 29, 2015      19 comments

This is a KEY KEY skill. I know it. And for me, maybe the one that is most often MIA. I know that I need to "do it anyway", even if I don't like using a diet skill. I know that I should give myself credit every time I DO eat... Read more
Beck Pink Reboot: Day 2, Pick Two Reasonable Diets
Friday, August 28, 2015      24 comments

OK, this is easy for me. Beck says there are two types of diets: the set eating plan and the counting system. But in fact I have a pretty set eating plan (I eat the same stuff day after day)AND I count too. So I combine the two appro... Read more
