Beck Pink Reboot Day 32, Prepare for Travel
Monday, September 28, 2015      19 comments

We are still on the road, and so far the preparation has worked well for this Beck trek! But: I am noticing that spending a lot of time with DH I'm more exposed to what he eats: and more tempted to eat more than usual myself. Our "gues... Read more
Beck Pink Reboot Day 31, Decide About Drinking
Sunday, September 27, 2015      15 comments

Now how hilarious is it that I'm in wine country for fall birding migration when this particular lesson comes up?? I'm not a big drinker ever, but I do enjoy a glass of wine maybe twice a week: tracked of course. And last night tried P... Read more
Beck Pink Reboot Day 30, Stay in Control When Eating Out
Saturday, September 26, 2015      28 comments

I do. Most of the time, anyhow. (There was that flourless molten chocolate cake episode last weekend after golf, remember?) But it's very very rare for me to eat out at all. Except at the golf course, where I can get (and almost ... Read more
Beck Pink Reboot Day 29, Resist Food Pushers
Friday, September 25, 2015      19 comments

First of all: scale encounter this morning shows me down 2 pounds from start day and down 2.5 pounds from yesterday. What predictably it would be given what I've been doing, working the Beck vigorously. Gahhhhhh. Such anguish yesterday, ... Read more
Beck Pink Reboot Day 28, Get Ready to Weigh In
Thursday, September 24, 2015      22 comments

Blech. I'm not trying to lose weight. I'm trying to maintain. But still, but still: I think that I OUGHT to lose weight because I'm working Beck pretty hard. And I do weigh every day anyhow (as a maintainer) and right now I'm UP ... Read more
Beck Pink Reboot Day 27, Master the Seven Questions Technique
Wednesday, September 23, 2015      19 comments

Well, I never have. And (tiny streak or rebellion continues) I'm not persuaded that I ever will. Or that it would be useful if I did. The concept of "mastering" anything is . . . not me. And this feels like a plunge further int... Read more
Beck Pink Reboot Day 26, Recognize Thinking Mistakes
Tuesday, September 22, 2015      16 comments

This for me is Beck's "heart of darkness" coming up. She's asked us first to think about "it's not fair": and how unfair is it that so many of my Beck buddies don't suffer from this one when I do?? NOT FAIR!!! (Oh well!!) She's aske... Read more
Beck Pink Reboot Day 25, Identify Sabotaging Thoughts
Monday, September 21, 2015      20 comments

Dr. Beck certainly identifies a whole lot of common sabotaging thoughts. The kind of sabotaging thoughts that result in me deciding to eat something not on my plan. Beyond, "It's unfair." Such as "Dieting is too hard"; or "I don't care"; or "I... Read more
Sinigang: Bonus Soup Blog
Sunday, September 20, 2015      15 comments

Sinigang is a Filipino soup on a tamarind, mango and chicken theme. Yesterday I saw tamarind pods marked down from $3.99 to .99 at my local grocery store and picked up a package. Then I googled the internet for a way to use them with other... Read more
Beck Pink Reboot Day 24, Deal with Discouragement
Sunday, September 20, 2015      22 comments

Remember that ol' song, "Home on the Range"? As a maintainer, I try to stay within a reasonable range of weight. But can't honestly say that maintenance actually IS that place "Where seldom is heard a discouraging word/And the skies a... Read more
Beck Pink Reboot Day 23, Counter the Unfairness Syndrome
Saturday, September 19, 2015      19 comments

Wah wah wah! I should be able to eat whatever I want whenever I want. It's not fair. I could eat whatever I wanted in the past and now I can't. It's not fair! That was when I was a little kid, and running around all day i... Read more
Beck Pink Reboot Day 22, Say Oh, Well, to Disappointment
Friday, September 18, 2015      18 comments

This "Oh, Well" thing? it's amazing how useful I find such a simple phrase. In so many contexts, well beyond weight control. Yesterday I was surrounded by food all day at my office. There was a massive mediation; oatmeal chocolat... Read more
Beck Pink Reboot Day 21, Get Ready to Weigh In
Thursday, September 17, 2015      20 comments

OK, stepping on the scale means I have to stop fooling myself about what I weigh, right? And If I weigh more, it means I have to get back on track. (No question, Dr. Beck is totally sequencing these steps!!) So: now I have a whol... Read more
Beck Pink Reboot Day 20, Get Back On Track
Wednesday, September 16, 2015      23 comments

OK, yesterday was "one of those days" when I was totally earning the big bucks (just kidding about the big bucks part. But not about the earning part). It could not have been more difficult: an entirely adversarial, unpleasant, frustrating... Read more
Beck Pink Reboot Day 19, Stop Fooling Myself
Tuesday, September 15, 2015      29 comments

Is this Dr. Beck lady psychic or what? Amazing how she can crawl inside my head and articulate all my sabotaging rebellious sulky brat thoughts. And even MORE amazing how she's also hearing my self-deluding excuses. All the things I t... Read more
