WEEK 2 ACCOUNTABILITY/POST STREAKS

Friday, October 03, 2008


THIS WEEK WAS NOT SO GOOD WITH MY STREAKS.

1. 30 MIN EXERCISE FOR 30 MIN.

2. READ NEEDED BECK CARDS DAILY.

3. EAT 5 FRUITS AND VEGGIES.

4. NO EATING AFTER DINNER EXCEPT A LITTLE PROTEIN FOR AVOIDED SUGAR DROPS.

5. READING A CHAPTER OF BECK EACH WEEK END.

6. TAKE VITAMINS DAILY.

7. GO TO BED EARLIER.

WELL THIS SECOND WEEK DID NOT GO TO GOOD. BUT, I DON'T WANT TO START OUT NEGATIVE.

WHAT I DID DO WAS EATING 5 FRUITS AND VEGGIES. I BELIEVE MY JUICER WILL HELP WITH THAT. I READ THAT JUICING VEGGIES WAS GOOD FOR DIABETES ACCORDING TO A JUICING WEBSITE I RAN ACROSS. AS FOR AS THE FRUITS BEING JUICED I'LL HAVE TO WATCH IT. FRUITS CAN HAVE A HIGHER NATURAL SUGAR CONTENT THEN VEGETABLES. I WOULD RATHER EAT MY FRUITS RAW.

I HAVE READ BECK CHAPTER ON THE WEEKENDS.

NOW FOR THE OTHER. EXERCISING AT NIGHT WILL BE A PROBLEM SINCE MY LITTLE ONES TEACHER HAS DECIDED TO GIVE HIM HOMEWORK. HE IS SPECIAL NEEDS. BUT HE IS PROGRESSING EXTREMELY WELL. SO I WILL HAVE TO EXERCISE UP IN THE DAY OR MORNING. OOOOOOO BOY THIS WILL A TRUE TASK. I HAVE NOT BEEN DOING ANY STRENGTH TRAINING THAT IS NO SURPRISE. (((I DON'T LIKE IT))).
BUT I HAVE TO DO IT. I MAY CUT BACK ON MY SCHEDULE. START OUT WITH 6 EXERCISES AND BUILD FROM THERE. I MAY GET THE MINI TRAMPOLINE FOR A CHANGE IN MY EXERCISE ROUTINE I NEED A CHANGE UP.

THE NIGHT EATING WHEW! THE ONLY THING I CAN THINK OF IS GOING TO BED EARLIER. SPARK IS NOT SET UP TO FIT A DIABETIC DIET. I HAVE BEEN INCLUDING FREE FOOD IN MY NUTRITION TRACKER. FOODS LIKE CUCUMBERS, LETTUCE, CELERY, ONIONS, CHERRY TOMATOES, OR ANY FOOD THAT IS 20 CALS OR LESS OR HAS 5 OR LESS CARBS IS CONSIDERED FREE FOOD FOR THE DIABETIC WHOSE BLOOD SUGARS ARE IN CONTROL. SO I WILL INCLUDE THESE FOOD ON MY TRACKER FOR NUTRITIONAL SAKE BUT I WILL SUBTRACT THE CALS OR CARBS. THAT MAY HELP ME FEEL MORE SATISFIED WHILE EATING. IF I DECIDE TO I WILL NOT INCLUDE THESE FREE FOODS IN MY TRACKER.


OH BOY THE VITAMINS ARE A NO BRAINIER. JUST PLAIN OLD FOR GETTING SOMETIMES. I BELIEVE THE ONLY WAY TO GET THEM IN IS USING MY MEDICATION BOX AND PUTTING MED'S, VITAMINS IN THE DAY BEFORE.

SOME DAY THE KEY WILL BE TURNED INTO SUCCESS. BUT AS LONG AS I KEEP GOING I AM NOT FAILING EITHER!! emoticon HEARS TO THOSE WHO KEEP GOING!!

    I need to get the BECK book and read it. I've seen it at the bookstore. Yesterday I had to give my son $35 for his Judo class, and my dd, needs $20 for getting her eyebrows arched today, so that doesn't leave me much "me" money by the end of the month. emoticon

    Hey, girl - sounds like you did great on the fruit and veggies - PAT! (That was a pat on your back ... too bad I couldn't find the right emoticon!)

About the not-feeling quite satisfied - I don't know if nuts work for a diabetic, but do try them if they're allowed. Yes, they have fat, but it's GOOD fat, and I actually found I lose weight easier if I include nuts on a daily basis. Just a few ... like 12 walnut halves, 30 peanuts or 20 almonds. It'll keep you feeling satisfied, and apparently munching a few before meals also helps trigger the brain about satiety faster! That may be the missing link - let me know if you do try it! :)

After writing all that, I think I just realised why I've been feeling bloated the past 3 days ... that's been the exact same 3 days I've NOT had nuts - ran out and hadn't bothered replacing them. I guess I'll be walking to the grocery store now. :)

Cheers,
Maya

TRYING SOMETHING NEW! MY NEW JUICER

Wednesday, October 01, 2008


MY MOM IS SO SWEET. SHE IS ALWAYS WORRYING ABOUT ME. SINCE MY NEAR DEATH EXPERIENCE 12 YEARS SHE RACES TO MY RUNS OR RACES TO HOUSE TO SEE IF I AM OK. THAT PART I REALLY HATE. I HAVE TOLD HER THAT GOD WILL TAKE CARE OF ME NOW NOT TO WORRY. I AM SURE NOT! HE SUSTAINS ME.

ANYWAY SHE BROUGHT THIS NEW JUICER. I was A BIT SCARED TO TRY IT BUT TODAY I TRIED SOME CUCUMBER/CELERY JUICE. I SEEN THIS ON "YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT" MCKEITH BBC PROGRAM. I LIKE HER. WILL THAT CELERY/CUCUMBER JUICE WAS NOT LIKE I THOUGHT IT WOULD TASTE. LETS BE NICE SAY IT WILL HAVE TO GROW ON ME. emoticon. NOW THE CARROT JUICE WAS DELICIOUS AND A WILL MAKE IT AGAIN. I'LL TRY JUICE COMBINATIONS AND LET YOU KNOW HOW I AM DOING WITH NEW JUICER!

    I heard that if you add apple to that concoction it tastes better - but um, EW, what combinations!!!

    Heh. Your experience with the cucumber-celery sounds familiar. One thing that usually works is to start with a "base" veggie that you really like the juice of (carrot? tomato? even apple!) and then add in small servings of the odder-tasting ones so the great taste masks the not-so-great! :)

Wait till you try wheat-grass. Seriously. AFTER you get used to it, you realise it is the freshest-tasting thing you've ever had. But the first few times, you really want to go "ICK!" :)

Have fun with the new juicer ... I'd be at the farmer's market in a heartbeat if I had a juicer! :)

Cheers,
Maya

    That is so precious that you have your mom to fuss over, be grateful Sweetie!! You only go round once & make it a heck of a time!! Juicing sound interesting but I'm still doing it the old fashion way.

Blessings!1

WEEKLY STREAKING POST/ACCOUNTABILITY

Thursday, September 25, 2008


I have decided to add a new streak. I am a night owl but I have read that proper sleep helps with weight loss. Lord knows I need all the help I can get.

So last night was the the first time I went to bed before 12:30. I felt better this morning. No dragging feeling.

I also struggle with late night eating but I can't eat if I am sleep.

GOALS FOR STREAKING.

1. EXERCISE FOR 30 MIN EACH DAY.

2. READ NEEDED BECK CARDS DAILY.

3. EAT 5 FRUIT/VEGGIES A DAY.

4. READ A CHAPTER OF BECK ON THE WEEKEND.

5. TAKE VITAMINS 7 DAYS A WEEK.

6. NO EATING AFTER DINNER EXCEPT SMALL AMOUNTS OF PROTEIN TO PREVENT A SUGAR DUMP.

7. GO TO BED EARLIER 5 DAYS A WEEK.

A LIST TO KEEP ME ON TRACK.

WELL THINGS GOT OFF TO A ROUGH START I CAUGHT A COLD FROM MY LITTLE ONE. BUT HE IS WELL AGAIN. I AM BETTER BUT I HAVE BEEN LEFT WITH A TICK LY COUGH. I AM TAKING AN OVER THE COUNTER MEDICATION FOR IT. IF THING DON'T IMPROVE I WILL TAKE A VISIT TO THE DR. BUT HOPEFULLY AND PRAY FULLY THINGS WILL GET BACK TO NORMAL THAT EVER THAT IS emoticon

    lol, it's 12:30 here but i also have been working on getting 8+, and it does make a difference in a lot. guess when we are tired our body increases hormones to make us feel hungry so it will get extra energy to make it through since it was short of sleep. i didn't really relate the urge to eat with fatigue, but do now ~ check it out. bet it will help with several things :)

    I'm a night owl as well - I don't know what I'd do if I went to bed before 12:15! I'd probably toss and turn until then! LOL

    I like it, girl: "Can't eat if I'm asleep!" Keep it up! Those streaks are going pretty well, from reading your posts on the Beck message-board!

Cheers,

    I feel better, too. My husband got the results back from his throat biopsy that he had done last Friday and he DOESN'T have Cancer, which is GREAT. He has a rare infection and the doctor gave him several medicines to take. emoticon

    Good for you - I like that you're getting back on track right away, today, not tomorrow!

Keep it up - and I hope you feel all better soon!

Signs must in the chest!

Tuesday, September 16, 2008


I am not sure if I understand the signs, but I do understand that my chest hurts while I cough. Dr. called cough medication in for me. For now I am muffling my cough when I have to cough. It really hurt badly!!!

I really hate that I have a cough which means I have to start over exercising all over again when I get well. I have found once I stop exercising it is hard getting my mojo back. Meaning it is hard to start back exercising. Oh Well as Beck would say You gotta do what you gotta do. Not resting means that I could delay my healing. So I will be a good girl for now.

I have changed some of my streak goals since I can not exercise. To keep myself motivated thur my down time as I call it.

New Goals:

1. CONSUME 8 GLASSES OF WATER.
2. EAT 5 FRUITS AND VEGGIES PER DAY (BY FAITH).
3. READ BECK BOOK WEEKLY.
4. READ NEEDED BECK CARDS DAILY.
5. TAKE VITAMINS DAILY.

I should be able to do all of these without too much trouble. emoticon

    Be very careful you don't get (have) pneumonia. When I was in college, I got pneumonia and it "hurt real bad" when I coughed. I went to the doctor's office and fainted while waiting. That did get me in to see the doctor quickly. emoticon
