According to Katy Bowman's new book: "Don't Just Sit There," the longer we sit or stand without moving for long periods, it changes everything in our bodies--even our DNA. Every little movement counts. I just saw a video of her interview with Mark Sisson--important info for me. This fits in with all the new scientific studies coming out on nutrition, exercise, and psychology. Exciting stuff surfacing now, dear friends.

I had a cold last week. I still managed my daily 30 minutes, sweating simply because I was so stuffed up. Have stayed away from the pool exercises though. Still not in the pool this week either. But I walked this morning and ate a healthy breakfast so here comes today!

Daily affirmation:
* I am a good person, and I deserve respect.
* I choose to respect myself today by refusing to engage in verbal or emotional self-abuse.
* I have been successful at many things I have set out to do, and I can learn to do better at the things that give me problems.
--Dean Anderson

We become what we want to be by consistently being what we want to become each day.

emoticon Woof. Yesterday was my long slow run for 10 miles. I walked for half a mile, then ran to the turnaround point where I decided to go point-to-point and call hubby to pick me up for a ride back to my car. (He'd agreed to do that in general.) Great run, 10.5 miles, called hubbers and... Alas, he'd taken off north to help his cousin.

emoticon No problem, just take the bus, right? Turns out the bus on my route runs only during morning and evening commuter hours and I'd just missed the last one. I had to walk almost six miles back to the car.

emoticon So I set a new PR for most miles covered in a day. EVER. Even in my younger hiking and climbing days. Surprisingly, my feet don't hurt this morning. Another surprise, I could barely choke down a tiny meal at the end of the day, even after missing lunch and all that exercise. Guess if you work hard enough you lose your appetite. Interesting....

I am eating differently. Iím not sure when this started, but it seems to be pretty well ensconced at this point. I have two mugs of coffee with H&H in the morning, then I get a little hungry about 1:00 or 2:00 pm and have yogurt w/whey or a protein smoothie. Because I donít like to cook first thing in the morning, I may have bacon and eggs for supper. That is working surprising well. I eat when I am hungry, and that means keeping good, almost ready-to-eat foods on hand. It is only necessary to prepare two meals a day.

Steps were good yesterday: 22,196--not my best, but I'll take 'em. Steps, not miles, show how active I have been. Each stride is different. For me, miles don't count unless I am running a race around an oval track. But STEPS are a great indicator of activity. Sitting is being called the "new smoking." Very bad for us. So when I sit, I keep moving my legs and feet. When I am in the kitchen waiting for bacon to cook or coffee or tea to be ready, I make up exercises. I am getting into isometrics now--as they can be done anywhere at any time.

I'm looking forward to the arrival of ebooks from Mark Sisson. When I am not learning something new, I am miserable! I am also looking forward to breathing clean air again. Oh how sweet to have a gentle rain come in.
Make this a happy day. emoticon Hugs, Roberta

While walking the pups yesterday, 106 and 110 pounds respectively. Barney lunged for a squirrel and knocked me off my feet. After 2 hours at urgent care they decided I had a fracture near my left elbow. Thankfully it only hurts when I extend my elbow and as long as I wear my sling I can walk, so with my husband holding the leashes we were off for the morning walk. Looks like we are all going to be getting lots of exercise:)

I did something I have not done in probably years and years -- got up, walked the dog, had breakfast and felt a cold -- like a summer time cold. so I got back into my pjs and fell back asleep. did not make it to the gym. I have to be really sick to do something like that

Hi everyone! I finished my big project and immediately headed off on vacation. Second day there, my lower back muscle pulled again and we had to rent a wheelchair for me for most of the vacation. I'm back on my feet now, but using a walker that lets me sit when I need too: too much standing and walking hurts a lot. I've been talking to my doctor and now I think its released enough to go it and get some PT and get things checked out.

So, I'll be around but moving slowly :)

This book fills in my return-to-health plan.
First, I found the nutrition right for me.
Second, I am on an exercise plan just right for me, and
Third, Ms. Beck's book takes care of the psychological, mind programming part.
The power of the mind/thinking over the body.

That should do it. i have some special plans coming up in October and December, and I would love to be more healthy, slender, fit, and strong with energy and stamina. This is a start for a healthier me.
Here's to a happy day to all of us. emoticon Roberta

The usual Friday dinner out with friends. The usual shared dessert was ordered. Heard myself think, just one bite. Instantly heard the rejoinder. There are no free bites. All bites count. You chose a healthy meal so you could meet your goals for the day. Let it go.

Thank you Beck!

Seajess Thanks for the tip. That is indeed an excellent blog. The thing is that I think it is possible to shape what it is we really want by keeping a list of why we want to lose weight and rereading it several times a day. I want a lot of things. And sometimes I get sloppy about focus. That list keeps me focused.
Have a great day all.

Well I could do that but why would I want to?

It's been 3 days of fairly good tracking and staying around 1,200 calories so I thought I'd check the scale this morning. Shouldn't have done that--I'm up a pound. Maybe the scale is having a bad day. I'm taking a deep breath, trying to shake it off, and vowing to remain vigilant in keeping track of what I eat. My blood pressure is up a little too and I think it's from the few pounds I've gained after the 4th of July, visiting relatives, and traveling. I'm going to try adding a second walk this afternoon. But, it is discouraging...

Good Friday Morning Sparkers.

Lovely cool day here. I am planning a good exercise day. Already reviewed my reasons for wanting to lose weight. I am on a good track today.
Last night in an email exchange with my coach (as recommended by Beck) I gained a better understanding about my thinking that precedes bad choices. I have to practice though because this sabotaging thought is such an ingrained habit of mine. When the thought arises..."that (particular) food is not like anything I can make at home and it is so special I must have some. I can begin my diet again tomorrow. I need to be armed and ready to argue back...That special item does look nice but not nearly as nice as it is to be slender and full of vitality. Now that is what I call special!
Have a great day everyone!

Well I could do that but why would I want to?

Just finished Day 3 of the Beck program; I'm combining it with Weight Watchers and/or the DASH eating plan. This time around, I'm going to go to WW meetings instead of just doing it online because I need the accountability.

Did OK and at everything sitting down, as per instructions. Read all my cards and lists.

Gone from Sparkpeople for quite a while but back again. I debated joining Weight Watchers, but it's gotten so expensive. 4th of July, visiting relatives, traveling, & other things outside the normal routine and I'm up 4 pounds. So, it's back to Sparkpeople and BDS for me. First goal is to get rid of those 4 pounds, then think about the remaining 37.

Sitting down to plan calories and nutrients now. It is pouring here so no out door exercise for me today. A day off is probably a good thing. Though my young dog won't think so! I am more than half way to my goal and savoring it. Plus I am now within the normal BMI range. Only two more pounds to my next mini goal. Thinking about rewards, teehee.

Well I could do that but why would I want to?

Perfect Beck day yesterday. Stayed within my calorie range. Followed Beck's suggestion to combine breakfast and lunch for brunch instead. Worked well. Also had a good walk. Heading off now to plan meals today. Have a great day.

have read both the 1st and 2nd book twice. I should re-read the first book. I am following Weight Watchers diet. Actually, I was only over my calorie level by about 300 calories. If I had not eaten those pretzels I would have been just fine

That is too bad Gwyn. What day are you on in the Beck book? What diet do you use?

Did my food plan for the day. It is so helpful to use the Spark meal tracker for planning. Combined with Beck's tools they are even more powerful. And fun.

Well I could do that but why would I want to?

Slipped last night. Watched TV for the first time in a long time and ate a slice of ww bread with almond butter. Did not eat at the table. It was not on my plan. And it put me over for the day on calories. I tried No Choice a couple of times, each time weaker till I gave in. Oh Well. Today is a new day and I learned a lesson. Now to work on rebuilding my poor battered resistance muscle.

Well I could do that but why would I want to?

Today will be a challenge. I am eating out in restaurants with friends for both lunch and dinner. So I went on line and looked at menus for both places and I have a plan but it is not going to be easy. I will do the best I can, enjoy the company and expect to be disappointed tomorrow when I step on the scale. I will remind myself that I did not put weight on overnight and I will not take it off overnight either. If I can maintain my losses while eating in restaurants it will be a great success.

Well I could do that but why would I want to?

I am thrilled with the Beck Diet Solution. Lost 12 pounds so far. Even my DH is down 4 and he has not even read the book.
Three more to go to get to my next mini goal. Which I will certainly do.

Welcome back GWYN

I am still going strong with my big project-- deadline is in nine days, then we leave for our vacation.

THEN I get back to a much more normal work schedule and life and hopefully more focus on weight loss. Right now I'm still spending a lot of energy just to keep my body healthy under all this stress.

Sorry Gwyn! Too nice a name to mess up.

I had a perfect diet day yesterday but I did not get enough exercise. And the scale did not budge this morning. Grrrh. However as Beck says it will if I keep at it. Patience!

Hi Gwen, I'm new here too. Hello everyone. Beck Solution is amazing me. I am loving this. So many useful tools. Happy scale this morning. Day 38 today. Combined with Spark tools and a good sustainable diet this system is effective.

Well I could do that but why would I want to?

I have been on Spark People for a long long time, I have lost weight and have gained some of it back, which I am not happy about. It is my goal to lose it.

The one thing I like about beck is that losing weight is about wanting to lose it -- and attitude

it does not matter how slow you go as long as you do not give up

Moonshadow, it will be good to see you whenever you have the time. emoticon

Speaking of time, I seem to be spending too much on Spark. Hours slip by while I type and read. Not sustainable!

Hello again! Glad to see this thread still moving and active. I can't promise to be back to regular posting for a while still: dealing with some IRL stuff and having to take a lot of things off my plate to stay moving forward.
