Faintly Ridiculous
Thursday, October 15, 2015      31 comments

Whatever works. Looking back at my pumpkin pie blog from yesterday, I'm pretty sure it's faintly ridiculous for anyone to divert food cravings into alternative wardrobe choices. Particularly a person of my advanced years!! But of cou... Read more
Pumpkin Pie
Wednesday, October 14, 2015      38 comments

Nobody in my house eats pumpkin pie. I like it, but if I buy it chances are good I'll end up eating the whole thing -- or throwing it out. And so: I buy "pumpkin pie" spice which is great in vanilla Greek yogourt. Or black coffee (wit... Read more
Healthy Day
Tuesday, October 13, 2015      20 comments

Yesterday I went to the gym, cardio and upper + lower body ST, AND for a long hike; and ate very healthily all day. It felt good! Ready for back to work. Interesting stuff coming up! ... Read more
Post-Thanksgiving . . .
Monday, October 12, 2015      26 comments

Thoroughly enjoyed my turkey dinner yesterday: a moderate portion of mashed potatoes, gravy, stuffing, turkey, steamed cauliflower, lots of fresh veggies (carrots, red peppers, tomatoes), a glass of white wine, and home-baked vegan apple crisp ... Read more
Raspberry Pie
Sunday, October 11, 2015      24 comments

Bought myself yesterday a new lipstick, and that's the colour. Raspberry pie. Pretty!! Low calorie!! Lots of vigilance will be required this weekend given that we're just post-Beck Trek and Canadian Thanksgiving coincides!! ... Read more
Beck Pink Reboot Last Day, How to Stay At My New Weight
Saturday, October 10, 2015      28 comments

Maintaining takes the same effort that losing weight took. Maintaining means eating the same amount of food and exercising the same amount as it took to lose weight. Maintaining means eating pretty much the same stuff day after day. S... Read more
Beck Pink Reboot, When to Stop Losing and Start Maintaining
Friday, October 09, 2015      26 comments

I have to admit, I'd hoped to lose some weight with this Beck Trek. And: I haven't. And: I'm probably going to have to acknowledge that maintaining at 145 (within a range of 3 pounds) is probably my lowest maintainable weight. It's not m... Read more
Beck Pink Reboot Day 42, Practice!
Thursday, October 08, 2015      24 comments

OK then: I've gotta keep on keeping on (and yesterday was much much better). Tough patches are temporary: in fact, Beck says so today. And I do have the skills, really I do, to keep on maintaining. To keep on thinking like a thin pe... Read more
Beck Pink Reboot Day 41, Make a New To-Do List
Wednesday, October 07, 2015      22 comments

If I stop practicing my Beck techniques, I won't likely maintain my weight. Key for me (and on my new "to do"): 1. Arrange my environment (hiding the peanut butter helps!); 2. Preplan my food and exercise; 3. Sit down to e... Read more
Beck Pink Reboot Day 40, Enrich My Life
Tuesday, October 06, 2015      17 comments

What am I waiting for? I can enrich my life right now. I don't have to wait until I've lost weight. I don't have to wait until I deserve it. Beck suggests enriching our lives by thinking about what we want to accomplish, selecting ... Read more
Beck Pink Reboot Day 39, Keep Up With Exercise
Monday, October 05, 2015      20 comments

I could be doing better with this. I'm very active: was on my feet all day every day birding last week. Golf. Ski. My spontaneous exercise is high too. But I need to be making better use of my gym membership! More planned exe... Read more
Beck Pink Reboot Day 38, Deal With a Plateau
Sunday, October 04, 2015      18 comments

Weighed myself this morning on my routine from our week away birding: steady at 145. Wah wah wah wah. I expected to lose weight. I deserved to lose weight. That's what I weighed before we left. I've been super busy and active... Read more
Beck Pink Reboot Day 37, Reduce Stress
Saturday, October 03, 2015      20 comments

Losing weight and maintaining weight loss isn't easy. It's not. And to create mental space within which I can exercise my Beck techniques, Beck reminds me that I need to reduce stress. Again, it's about sequence. To reduce stress, it he... Read more
Beck Pink Reboot Day 36, Believe It
Friday, October 02, 2015      27 comments

In 2000 I weighed 230 pounds. At least! More than that I'm pretty sure: because I was so disgusted with myself I didn't weigh myself until I'd lost probably 10 pounds at least. And last time I weighed myself (last Saturday, before setting... Read more
Beck Pink Reboot Day 35, Get Ready To Weigh In
Thursday, October 01, 2015      18 comments

I'm still "on the road" and I didn't bring my scale with me. So: won't be able to comply tomorrow: but will weigh Sunday morning. Because when I'm home I do (as a maintainer) weigh every day. And whether the scale is down or not: I'v... Read more
