Beck Day 7 / Activity

Friday, November 29, 2013

Holy Wow! I just noticed that I actually did activity 5 times this week. That is a first for me probably since high school!

Feeling really good about how this is going just now. Ate very healthy yesterday and did the Pilates and Shimmy which I had pvr'd from channel ONE. Enjoyed both! Today I dug out my cross country skis and made a trail around my yard. I did 35 minutes and couldn't believe the work out. I am so out of shape! LOL! I really enjoyed it, but our yard isn't that suitable - back slopes quite a bit down to a swamp. Trails are close by however and should be open soon. Also, I have access to the lake so once it is good and froze that will be wonderful!

Beck Day 7 is about arranging your environment so trigger foods and temptations aren't available and healthy food is handy. At work this is easy - there are only 4 in our office and I usually bring my lunch. We don't normally bring in food to share other than fresh fruit during the summer.

At home, I have a good handle on this - I buy treats that my DH and his son like that I don't such as store bought cookies. If DH wants brownies, he brings them to work, not home. DH likes plain potato chips and I don't, so okay there. His son does like Doritos, which I love - but he keeps them up in his bedroom, so we're good. I keep fresh fruit, almonds, carrot sticks and hard boiled eggs handy, so I can grab something healthy if I need to.

The one thing I need to work on here is if DH's son cooks a pizza and leaves leftovers on the counter. If I can smell it, I can't resist.

We are heading out of town for the day tomorrow. Costco run and family dinner. Day 8 will have to wait till Sunday.
