The Beck Solution - Day 3

Saturday, January 03, 2015      7 comments

The assignment for Day 3 is to only eat when sitting. At first glance I thought -- oh that's easy as long as they don't tell me I can't sit in front of my computer or the TV when I am eating. Well they haven't said that -- at least not yet. S... Read more
