Rocks rolling around in the head... spilling out to a blog
Monday, October 23, 2017      21 comments

Several "rocks rolling around in my head" this past week or two, a phrase I picked up from STRONGDAWG, I think. A couple of weeks ago, a work colleague mentioned I was looking healthier! Seriously, after gaining weight. He perceived me as... Read more
Non-Race report - Bryan Health Classic 5K
Sunday, October 22, 2017      20 comments

I did NOT race this one. Instead, I e-mailed ahead to announce my intention to NOT go the 15K distance, but the 5K instead. It was a lovely afternoon. The fall colors are bright. I did not take photos, but I showed up. I am feelin... Read more
Re-Beck Day 19 - stop fooling yourself
Thursday, October 19, 2017      25 comments

I have to admit this is one of my absolute favorite Beck days. Why? Because "fooling yourself" is at the key to every self-harming decision I make with regard to food. The fooling myself might be in the form of "I need these extra calories be... Read more
Re-Beck Day 18 - Change your definition of full
Wednesday, October 18, 2017      16 comments

The problem with re-Becking is the thoughts of "I already did this", or "I know this" and "why do I need to do it again?" And the thought of eating to moderate fullness (something I learned to do, over the years) pushes the rebel within to ... Read more
Re-Beck and rebellion - Day 17 continued
Tuesday, October 17, 2017      21 comments

The "Experiment" of putting more on my plate than planned, pushing it to the side, and leaving it there until the end of the meal was performed last night at supper. I had cooked hot dogs and sauerkraut. Normally, I would cook exactly the ... Read more
Re-Beck Day 17 - End Overeating
Monday, October 16, 2017      23 comments

First, a confession: I have been out of compliance over the weekend. As in not doing the Beck things, not reading, and rebelling against food plan as well. But I have two folks I'm "coaching", and so, rebellious brain and all, I'm doing the a... Read more
Sometimes life just rushes by too fast
Sunday, October 15, 2017      22 comments

Well, yesterday was the annual Ironman World Championship race in Kailua, Kona, Hawaii. Two of our locals were racing, and the tri club planned a watch party in Omaha. I did not go, preferring to stay in my own cave and stream it at my leisure... Read more
Re-Beck Days 15 and 16 - monitor eating and prevent unplanned eating
Saturday, October 14, 2017      16 comments

So... I did it... Thursday I planned. Friday I monitored. And I read and used techniques from Day 16 on Friday, too. Because this year, these skills need beefing up! I admit that I do not do EXACTLY the method of recording that Dr. Beck ... Read more
Re-Beck Day 14 - plan for tomorrow and Starting Week 3
Friday, October 13, 2017      21 comments

This is a skill / practice that I've never completely abandoned... it's so ingrained from years of maintenance. BUT... the areas where I've slipped recently were in sticking WITH the plan! That's my challenge of the year... the giving in and g... Read more
Re-Beck Day 13 for real - overcome cravings
Thursday, October 12, 2017      14 comments

I ran out of blog time this morning, but what I had already begun doing, on a generic level, was using the mindset techniques introduced on Day 13. But before we get to the mindset techniques, let's talk about TRACKING cravings. We're aske... Read more
Before starting Re-Beck Day 13 - overcome cravings
Thursday, October 12, 2017      14 comments

The day lessons are building on each other by this time. "Overcome Cravings" involves two things from prior lessons: recognizing that you're dealing with a craving, as opposed to hunger or simple desire to eat. And the discomfort scale we per... Read more
Re-Beck Day 12 - the roller coaster of mood versus discomfort
Wednesday, October 11, 2017      12 comments

Polly Perfectionist was giving me a hard time all day long. Was it cheating, she wondered, that I allowed myself sugar free gum? Coffee? And wasn't it cheating that I allowed myself that morning snack? But, in the end, I survived. Here'... Read more
Re-Beck Day 12 - practice hunger tolerance
Wednesday, October 11, 2017      16 comments

Yes, the "dreaded Day 12" - the one so many don't want to do, resist doing, etc. The day we deliberately skip a meal to firmly demonstrate to ourselves that we're not gonna "die" of hunger, that it's not an emergency! I remembered that the... Read more
Re-Beck Day 11 - the rest of the day
Tuesday, October 10, 2017      13 comments

I left off with breakfast hunger monitoring. The rest of the day went like this: Morning snack was deferred three times. Normally I go for recess walk about 10 a.m., but someone came to my cube and I was involved in a work conversation un... Read more
Re-Beck Day 11 - hunger, desire and cravings
Tuesday, October 10, 2017      15 comments

Can you detect the difference? Beck contends that most dieters (OK most folks who develop weight problems) have difficulty distinguishing among these. I would contend that even if we CAN tell the difference, we don't ACT differently... we lack... Read more
