Second mini meditation retreat

Sunday, June 28, 2015      13 comments

This time I was at my parents' weekend house from Saturday 1pm to Sunday 2 pm. Was just as peaceful and uplifting as last week. Again, nothing else then mindful activities, sitting and walking meditation, dharma talks, one long walk and o... Read more

Hunger, cravings and success (not) eating out

Saturday, June 27, 2015      18 comments

Again, this is a reflection on what I learned from the Beck book. This morning I read a Spark Friend's blog about fearing hunger, and in my comment I shared my experience, as I used to be anxious of getting hungry before my next meal and th... Read more

Mini meditation retreat and old garden

Thursday, June 25, 2015      14 comments

I have planned to do a mini meditation retreat alone for a while. Last week the time came: my parents went for a vacation, and so their weekend house was empty. It is only 15 miles away from my home, on a hill, next to a main hiking path in th... Read more

Sunday: good run, good sitting and relaxing day

Sunday, June 14, 2015      14 comments

My 7 am morning run was great, 20 oC / 68 oC, light breeze, shades: heavenly for a heat alert day! I started a later than planned, as I dropped off DD at 6:45 at work. DS was unable to wake up, so I left him at home. It was still early fo... Read more

Half Marathon Relay cancelled

Friday, June 12, 2015      7 comments

I usually run alone, except for 1-2 half marathon relays with my colleagues. For some reason most races are in summer, starting around noon. Against all odds, the temps were OK at the 4 races we did so far, but this weekend it is 35 oC /95oF... Read more

Aversion and desire

Thursday, June 11, 2015      16 comments

Our city has been by many random and poorly planned road reconstructions and traffic jams are really annoying. I have been reading an book about one of the Buddha's most famous discourses, and one interesting thought is that a lot if suffering... Read more

More calories for 20 days - calculation

Thursday, June 04, 2015      18 comments

It has been 20 days since I added back calories to stop weight loss, and I see a sideways trend - there have been many periods like this in the past 5 months so I don't declare reaching balance yet. My body got used to the larger portions: th... Read more

My insights on amount of food and satisfaction

Saturday, May 30, 2015      25 comments

After more than 3 years of maintaining my weight within goal range, with tendencies of creeping up, recently I got into a second weight loss phase, and settled into a lower maintenance goal range. My experiences made me think a lot about amoun... Read more

I did the math part well

Saturday, May 23, 2015      17 comments

Thank you dear Spark Friends for your input on my last blog, your comments helped me put my "problem" in perspective. What I'm doing is right or very very close to right, I just need to accept transition is harder than steady state. Our loc... Read more

Eating more and whining while transitioning back to maintenance

Friday, May 22, 2015      13 comments

Today is day 6 of eating about 12% more than before (2150 cal), in order to stabilize my weight. I still don't like it, because - I feel a bit more full than pleasant and longer than pleasant - I never feel that my stomach is empty, so it ... Read more

Blood donation and eating more

Monday, May 18, 2015      9 comments

There was a mobile blood donation station at my workplace. I took low dose iron pills in the past 2 weeks, drank a lot in the morning, and managed to have it done before my 11 am meeting. My blood counts were good, but lower than last time, half... Read more

+250 calories

Sunday, May 17, 2015      19 comments

I planned to wait out till my weight plateaus naturally, as the Beck book promised, but it doesn't seem to happen and I really don't want to lose more. I was 57.7 kg this morning, and 58 was my psychological barrier. The new clothes I bought r... Read more
