It's taper week! The Celebration Half Marathon is a week from today. My niece is going to drive me and I am so thankful for that. Still not sure about packet pick up. I can't do Friday evening (it's open 4-8am) because we have play tickets, so t... Read more
Comment on Beck Day 33
Saturday, January 21, 2017      13 comments

When it comes to emotional eating, I have found over and over that my biggest struggles are when I'm stressed AND I'm not handling my hunger well. If my nutrition is good I'm far less likely to fall in the trap of emotional eating. When I'm tryi... Read more
Beck Day 33 Again
Friday, January 20, 2017      15 comments

Day 33 is about eliminating emotional eating. Beck says: - "people without a weight problem don't even think about eating to feel better." There's nothing wrong with having negative emotions. It just tells us there is a problem. If you... Read more
Beck Day 32 Again
Thursday, January 19, 2017      9 comments

Day 32 is all about travel and how to continue to work toward goals -- or at least not give them up totally -- while you are on the road. Travel for my family usually means staying in motels and eating out a lot. So the section of the book ... Read more
Beck Day 31 Again and Promising PT
Wednesday, January 18, 2017      12 comments

Beck Day 31 is very easy for me. I rarely drink. In 2016 my total alcoholic consumption was 2 ounces of wine -- I didn't even finish the glass. It was sweet, in a not good way, and I didn't like it at all. My stepdaughter gave us a bottle from a... Read more
Beck Day 30 Again
Tuesday, January 17, 2017      14 comments

Day 30 is about eating out. Usually I'm good at it. I often check the website and make my selection ahead of time, sometimes even tracking it and checking my nutritional goals to make sure my selection fits the day. I'm not influenced by what ot... Read more
Beck Day 29 Again
Monday, January 16, 2017      14 comments

My family has come to accept that I am going to eat what I am going to eat. Occasionally I will indulge with them in a celebratory treat, but most of the time I abstain. Last night my daughter brought a pecan pie to the fish/potatoes/broccoli/co... Read more
Bonus: The Promised 7Q Beck Technique Application
Sunday, January 15, 2017      11 comments

I about have the 7 questions memorized, but I realize I am going to have to memorize the 9 thinking errors on page 195-196 if I'm going to use the technique without having to find the book, The Beck Diet Solution by Judith S Beck, PhD. And I hav... Read more
Beck Day 28 Again
Sunday, January 15, 2017      14 comments

Day 28 is about the scale, getting ready to weigh in for the 2nd official time on this Beck reboot. I weigh daily, most of the time, especially most of the time that I am doing well. Usually when I'm not weighing it is because I don't want to se... Read more

Ran 13.5 miles with group in 2 hours and 52 minutes using 45 seconds run/30 seconds walk. I got up at 4am for the 5am start. I carried a flashlight, had lights on both feet, and a headlamp as well as a red blinker in the back. Good news is I rem... Read more
Beck Day 27 Again
Friday, January 13, 2017      16 comments

Today I am reviewing the 7 question technique. Of all the Beck strategies this is the one I believe I used the least and not enough to benefit from it. It is complicated at least on the surface. I have to remember to do it as well as remember al... Read more
Beck Day 26 Again
Thursday, January 12, 2017      16 comments

I carried an index card with me all day yesterday because I could just put it in my pocket with a pen. It was more convenient for me than the notebook recommended by Beck and I keep my Beck cards in an index card plastic case anyway. My assignme... Read more

If Tomorrow is Hard I'll Deal with it Then (Beck Day 24)
Tuesday, January 10, 2017      19 comments

It's normal to feel discouraged at times, says Beck. It's natural to have doubts that we can keep doing what we need to do. So it is normal and natural to have discouraging thoughts, but it is not okay to let them overwhelm us. We have a choice!... Read more
