IMEMINE1's SparkPeople Blog IMEMINE1's Blog on SparkPeople, home of free diet plans and a healthy living community Up date on Hubby Sorry I didn't write sooner but I do want to thank all for there prayers and well wishes. <BR> We did get better news Friday morning. The ulcer is starting to heal. We have to keep putting the two different droops in and taking the oral med and we have an appointment on Wed. morning. <BR> His eye still looks horrible and red and swollen but we are glad for the news. <BR> If you can continue the prayers it would be appreciated. <BR> I will let you know how it goes. <BR> <em>247</em> a... Sun, 4 Oct 2015 08:32:28 EST Need prayers Please say a prayer for my husband. <BR> We came home from his eye doctor visit (he has been treating for a few days) for an eye infection. <BR> We have to go to a cornea specialist tomorrow and he might need surgery. <BR> We had to go to Lancaster for special drops from a Custom Pharmacy and he has to alternate every 30 minutes. <BR> Thank you, <BR> Donna <BR> <em>458</em> <BR> <BR> . Tue, 29 Sep 2015 18:08:54 EST Beck Day 22 I weigh myself every morning and I record it on my calendar. It keeps me in line either happy or sad. <BR> <BR> When I go down in weight what ever it is I am happy and motivated to do more. <BR> When I go up I am sad but I keep motivated to "WATCH IT" or I'll undo all the good I have done. <BR> <BR> I think the "Oh Well" can be used as a scale where it can stop you to think about that <em>495</em> or extra <em>480</em> or whatever is calling you out. <BR> Oh Well, can be our boxing gl... Sat, 19 Sep 2015 07:54:58 EST Beck Day 17 I wanted to write about day 17 as well. End Overeating. <BR> I think this is one I actually know that I do well, at least when Hubby and I are eating at a restaurant or Subway,etc. <BR> I always end up giving him some of my food because he gets done usually before me and I always think that I am smaller than he is and shouldn't be eating like a man. <BR> When we split a Hoagie (sub) I always end up eating say 3/4 of mine and giving him the last bite or two. It does make me feel better ab... Tue, 15 Sep 2015 20:20:57 EST Beck Day 16 I like the idea of doing the menu the day before. The No Choice is a bit harder. <BR> Breakfast is easy because I usually have a banana and yogurt or a banana and nut butter between 4:30 and 5:00 am before go to work. <BR> I come home again between 9:30 and 10:00 am to make Bill"s breakfast and I usually eat my real breakfast/lunch then. <BR> Then I leave at 1:00 pm to go back to work and come home about 4:30-5:00 pm and make supper. <BR> Between those away times I talk to other women driver... Mon, 14 Sep 2015 12:33:58 EST Beck Do over 11-12 I did the 2nd day of skipping lunch because my partner and I got our blogs mixed up so we did it together. <BR> I did so much better yesterday with the hunger and cravings. <BR> I stayed in 0 to 3 range and biggest discomfort was like a bang and gone. <BR> I ate soup and rice and some veggies for supper and I felt good about it. <BR> On to day 14 for today. <BR> <em>334</em> <BR> Fri, 11 Sep 2015 05:27:57 EST Beck Day 11 and 12 I did skip my lunch today (I know I have done that before) but tracking my hunger was a bit hard. <BR> I went to a possible 6 or maybe 7 but I am sure it was for a short period of time. <BR> I do know that by the time we ate about 5:00 I was very hungry but I am not sure if it was more a mind thing. <BR> (I did get a headache about 1:30 or so.) <BR> <BR> I mentioned to my aid what I am doing and I talked to her about how I usually eat. <BR> When I was kid I think I survived on apples, salt a... Wed, 9 Sep 2015 18:01:16 EST Beck Day 11-12 I am doing Practice hunger tolerance today and right now I'm at a possible 4. But hanging in there. <BR> I had a healthy breakfast so I think I will make. <em>20</em> <BR> I am going to be leaving and do my school run soon so that will make it easier. (I hope) <BR> Will let you know how the rest goes. <BR> <em>104</em> Wed, 9 Sep 2015 12:58:10 EST Beck Day 10 I have re-read most of the book yesterday because I really want this to work. <BR> Today I read my ARC cards at least twice plus my other ones <BR> I had company so we ran for pizza and I only had 2 slices and I ate them slowly and enjoyed every bite <BR> I gave myself credit for controlling my eating <BR> I did a few spontaneous exercises <BR> I decided to do Yoga and walking as my main exercises <BR> I plan on doing yoga between my run in the morning and walking in the afternoon <BR> I did ... Mon, 7 Sep 2015 20:44:13 EST Beck Day 7 I haven't been blogging everyday but I am still doing everything in the book. <BR> I sit down and have mindful eating. The slowly I do have to work on as I tend to be a fast eater. <BR> This is due to the fact I was a waitress for 20 years and we only had a short time to eat, and the my last job I ate while working for 10 years. <BR> The last 2 years I am home for meals, usually, and I do have to slow down. <BR> <BR> Diet Buddy. I know I can use one of those. <em>4</em> <BR> <BR> Arrangi... Sat, 5 Sep 2015 06:38:00 EST Beck Day 2 I should have written this yesterday but we got home late and I was tired. <BR> Yesterday I picked my 2 eating plans. <BR> <BR> #1 I am going to do the Skinny Rules Diet that Gabby1948 had mentioned and I bought the book and it is doable. <BR> #2 I am vegetarian and plan on doing A Lot of Eat to Live and recepies from Kathy Freston"s Veganist. <BR> <BR> <BR> I did the to do list. <BR> <BR> This will be short but I plan on doing Day 3 later. <BR> Today is my Hubby's birthday and we a... Sun, 30 Aug 2015 07:58:18 EST Beck Day 5 First of all I want to thank everyone for telling me what a good job I did for not eating the sticky bun yesterday. It really made me feel good. <BR> I only wish that today I didn't eat that donut. I really was mad at myself and it just goes to prove the point of I didn't work my resistance muscle I actually just grabbed it and that was that!! <em>46</em> <BR> I have got to learn to focus and think that eating the wrong thing is as bad a habit as smoking or some other crutch we lean ... Fri, 28 Aug 2015 18:01:07 EST Beck day 4 I have read Chapter 4 and I am happy that the BDS is for everyone. I am almost at maintenance but I have a few pounds to lose and good habits to learn. <BR> I have been watching my eating habits the past few days and I now make sure I am sitting down when I eat, and I am controlling what i eat. (I have to get in the habit of posting on my nutrition tracker) <BR> Today I turned down a sticky bun that I would have jumped on. So Proud of myself. (Pat,Pat) <BR> I think the task a day is fine and ... Thu, 27 Aug 2015 18:40:56 EST Beck diet 1,2, and 3 I am very excited about doing this Beck Diet Solution. I read all 3 chapters and didn't blog yet so I am rolling the 3 together and I'll hopefully start doing it as it should be. <BR> The "Key to Success" is learning to think like a thin person. <BR> The power of Cognitive Therapy is talking yourself out doing something bad or talking yourself into something good. <BR> When I quit smoking 20 years ago I didn't know that I was using Cognitive Therapy. <BR> Every time I wanted to smoke I... Thu, 27 Aug 2015 11:42:33 EST New Month, New Promises This is from a book of Positives quotes for everyday. It is written by Patricia Lorenz. <BR> <BR> (This is today.) <BR> <BR> Glorious Possibilities <BR> "The moment when first you wake up in the morning is the most wonderful of the 24 hours. No matter how weary or dreary you may feel, you possess the certainty that...absolutely anything may happen. <BR> And the fact that it practically always doesn't, matters not one jot. The possibility is always there." Monica Baldwin <BR> <BR> Today i... Sat, 1 Aug 2015 06:54:44 EST OK, Here I start again Hi, <BR> I just wanted to put in writing that I started my 108 Day Yoga program. Just now being day 1. <BR> <BR> I have been doing it off and on, (more off than on) and I never did finish it. <BR> Well this time I am going to do it. Even if I miss a day I will do the day missed the next day until I do 108 days. <BR> <BR> I think that I gave up the one time at day 45 or so because I did slack off and instead of jumping back in I said something like "Oh well, now I have to wait until this da... Fri, 15 May 2015 12:31:41 EST Now I know why no emails This is about 4 times (at least) that my email setting for SparkPeople has gotten messed up. <BR> The check mark appears for never E Mail me again and I have to un check it. <BR> Plus this time it said mine was not a legitimate e mail or some such garbage like that. <BR> Hopefully it is good now. <BR> I did put it back in so I will have to wait and see tomorrow. <BR> I suppose I should be glad I checked it because I am not all that great in solving all these issues. <em>224</em> <BR> I don... Mon, 16 Mar 2015 11:53:16 EST March's weight gain I gained 1.8 pounds from last week. I was down on March 1st but up today. <BR> I know why, it is not a mystery, I ate too much junk. That's why. <BR> <BR> I exercised but I could not out run the fats,the calories, the whole cup cake,candy bar, LIGHT buttered popcorn and everything else that passed my lips. <BR> <BR> The past few days I got into a frenzy like I was ready to hibernate or just woke up from a long winter's fast. (we know that wasn't it) <BR> <BR> I think I would have had to be... Wed, 4 Mar 2015 12:39:57 EST Holiday funny or truth <img src=""> Thu, 11 Dec 2014 06:50:54 EST
