Beck again the final time. Day 1

Sunday, November 23, 2014

Will review and edit Advantage card. re-reading the first part of the book. Will also track at least 2 days this week. Did the elliptical for 50 minutes this morning and strength for 1 hour. Felt so good. Stretched for 20 on the stretch bars. Usually stretch at home. Forgot how nice that contraption is. The start of a great day, a great week! Let's do it!! emoticon emoticon emoticon

Sugar Addiction - getting it under control

Sunday, November 16, 2014

I'm doing better with my sugar habit this past week. I didn't eat the sugary snacks at the post concert reception last night. Yeah!! Will try again to have a limited sugar day today. It's very difficult yet. I know it gets better because I've been here before but it's still soooo hard. Sometimes I'm eating something sweet before I realize it. All seems so crazy. Anyway am leaving to run for at least an hour on the treadmill at the gym and do lots of strength work. I definitively have exercise motivation but can't keep it together when it comes to sweets. I was good for a few years but can't seem to get it back. Will continue to try.

    i love my sweets but i don't know if i have an addiction to it. there have been days that I indulge but they're not to the point where i'm binging on them like before. what's helped me is i started eating lots of healthy fats. Avocados in the form of guacamole, ground flax seeds in my smoothies, extra virgin olive oil in my cooking. Tuna fish sandwiches and I really notice a big change in my sweet tooth.

I've read that when we have a sweet tooth, it's because our bodies want more carbs, so i have fruit smoothies now and then to prevent that urge, but I haven't noticed a difference.

I also read that if you crave chocolate your body needs magnesium (raw nuts, seeds, legumes, fruits) when it craves sweets your body needs chromium ( broccoli, grapes, cheese, dried beans, chicken). hope this helps. keep up the good workouts at the gym.

  Does adding cinnamon to your toast or oatmeal help?

At least a start

Wednesday, August 20, 2014

Finally decided to have a better day and follow thru. Thanks to Slenderella and visuallylyrics for comments. Really seemed to help. Tomorrow I am planning to track food and do some more fitness entries from my calendar log. At least I haven't quit exercising at all. Am as tennis crazy as ever. Maybe a bit more. Played for 2 hours today and took a walk. One more day tomorrow. Thanks for your support.

Beck Diet Solution - Trying again 3rd time - a charm? Hope so!

Thursday, August 23, 2012

Day 1,2,3 review. Day 3 - Eat Sitting Down This is SO hard for me. I will try to sit down as much as I can. I will allow a few plain veggies while standing. My goal is to train myself little by little not to snack when making meals. I can eat so many calories before my meal even "officially" starts. Today, only cherry tomatoes and cucumber slices will be on hand and I will try not to eat them until dinner, too. I always rationalize this behavior as well as eating standing up or in the car because I tell myself I don't have time. I have my advantages card out and read it. I am starting the South Beach and will try to track starting today. I ran 3.5 miles this morning and did a lot of stength training. I will keep my focus, I will keep my focus..........
I CAN DO THIS!! YOU CAN DO IT,too. Let's get going!!!

    emoticon emoticon emoticonTell yourself that eating sitting down is very important self-care. You have such an active life, it's especially important to do it for yourself. I reached 60% of my 1st year SP goal. At least this year, I don't have 50 to lose! I keep coming back to the thread you started about what I did to keep the Spark today. It's really helpful. emoticon

    YES, we can do it!! Sitting down to eat has been a real challenge for me, too. I frequently stand up with a bite still in my mouth to grab a wipe or pick something off the floor the grandkid just threw or even to get something for hubby (like catsup) that I forgot to put on the table.

Glad you are using your cards. I'll get mine out again, too. I do find it motivating and helpful to read them several times a day. Take care!! -Marsha

Beck Diet Solution - Review

Saturday, June 09, 2012

Here we go again!! Still haven't gotten the sitting down to eat habit ingrained but continue to try. I am attempting to review the days of the Beck to get the behaviors into my thick skull a bit better. I may have to redo them many times until they get more natural. i can do this. I will be thinking like a thin person and it will be a natural thing!!!! Yes! I will continue to TRY. those last 15 pounds will be dust!! Have a sparkin' good weekend!

    I need to recapture Beck! I have not been doing great. I used to feel like this was all finally getting easy, and it was really "through my thick skull" but it is not fun to realize how easy it is to slip out of the new habits! I'm due for some review!

    The 'trying' is the most important part! I wish you continued success. You never quit trying and I admire that.
