Beck - Day 1 - 3 + Sassy Water :)

Monday, September 14, 2009

I have my "Sassy Water" made from the new book, "The Flat Belly Diet" - I have only 1/2 lemon, but I peeled and sliced a whole cucumber & lots of mint leaves. I'm looking forward to drinking this - it looks like a lovely summer drink you would imagine lounging with in a hammock or something :)

I've already hit the pavement this morning and took the dog for her walk. I was happy my husband stayed behind so that I could just get out there with my thoughts & "Do it anyway".

So, I am completely ready to just jump right in there & begin again. I have been doing this with the gym - I have a pre-conceived expectation of myself & my workout but all I need to do is to first show up there & I usually end up doing more than planned.

I am going to accellorate my Beck workbook, as I have been through this 3 times and the beginning is the easiest part...

Day 1 - Review the Advantages of Dieting

1. Re-write my list of reasons I want to lose weight
2. Post it
3. Carry Response Cards & keep reading the #1 card "Do It Anyway"
4. Carry my creative motivation book
5. Figure out a way to use my "tools" on my iPhone so that I always have them close
6. Begin following new diet plan & log my food
7. Always eat while sitting down

Day 2 - Commit to a Diet Plan

~~Choose a primary diet AND a backup diet ~~

Since I am very intrigued with the "Flat Belly Diet", I am going to focus on this, but as a backup, I always use Weight Watchers. This diet is more of the BASICS that I have learned to judge the foods by their labels & is a common sense approach to dieting.

Day 3 - Sit Down To Eat

"Savor every bite you eat" ~ Eat at the table... Standing up and eating is NOT an option. I initially thought I don't do this, I always eat at the table, but we have made a bad habit of eating on the couch in front of TV, or snacking out on the patio, with a social/party atmosphere, etc. I want to make it more of an event to set the table and enjoy every meal in the dining room. The TV can wait.
