In a good way.....
Today has been strange. First, could not sleep until 430 a.m., not good since I had a 9 a. dental appointment. I got about 2 hours of sleep. After the dentist I came home and napped another 2 hours. I just feel lousy, kind of a wasted day. I... Read more
Recognizing Thinking Mistakes
Some days I think there is something really wrong with my brain. I always have thought differently than most people. Sometimes people are amused by my brain activity. Most of the time they just do not get it at all. None the less reading Dr.... Read more
Short and sweet.
Sabotaging thoughts. Almost like Judith Beck and I had a conversation. She pulled a couple of those right off my lips. "It's a special treat!" I'll just have a small piece" "Maybe just a few crumbs" I guess those are my biggies. However, ... Read more
Deal with Discouragement
At nearly 66 years of age, I have had my ups and downs with discouragement. I'm baseline an overcomer. About 9 months ago I was so discouraged. I had let myself go to over 200 lbs. (3 years ago, I was getting into pretty good shape and then... Read more

O Well To Disappointment
I know this is one of those that will sneak up on me. Right now everything is working really incredibly well, losing lbs, feeling the muscles tightened up a bit, a little bagginess in my uniforms. I feel mentally stronger than ever doing these... Read more

So, yes, this is blog number 2 of today, but it's almost midnight and I weigh in when I wake up tomorrow. I read the chapter and now I'm feeling a little stressed. I wasn't until I started THINKING about weighing. So, here's what I'm thinkin... Read more
Beck Day 20 Getting back on track
It's all easy when you are home, doing your normal routines. Going to the gym, cleaning and doing stuff around the house or job, but how easily it changes when stuff is thrown off kilter by random events. I love the pyramid, the binge, starts... Read more
Beck Day 19 STOP fooling yourself
This isn't such a challenge since last January (I bought a food scale, which is annoyingly always out on the counter) and I have been working on measuring every little morsel I eat. I must confess a semi rare divergence when measuring some thin... Read more
Here we go!
Beck Day 17/18 I am combining these. I am almost OCD about measuring my food for the last 2 months, so to over eat is rare. I did eat a huge salad a couple days ago and felt a bit "tight" bellied afterward. At any rate, tonight I'm going... Read more
Happiness is a good pink book!
Day 15~~~weigh yourself. Since I generally weigh in Monday but work night shift tonight I weighed in today. I prayed (really did) as I stepped on my scale. Happy to report I was down 1 lb., one WHOLE pound!!! (I've been losing .5 most weeks).... Read more
Grand daughter and her momma are going kayaking with me today. I woke up really early, couldn't get back to sleep so made a finger food picnic for our outing. Hummus, celery sticks, peanut butter, red pepper slices, apples, some crackers and st... Read more
Grapes: Little globes of deliciousness!
I have an immense appreciation for a grocery store here in the Chicago area, Pete's Fresh market. It has this HUGE produce area just inside the front door. The store is owned by Mexican American's who have incredible standards. Everything in ... Read more
The good the, The BAD and the UGLY
So, short story long. Last evening I had a plan to go see my grand daughter (Arielle) , and her mom (Erica) who I haven't seen in almost 2 years. It was a bad break up and daddy hasn't seen her for 1 1/2 years. MAJOR ISSUES. I said I would d... Read more
