Ok, I made it through 1-2 a.m twice tonight. Exhausting! I really find this time change annoying, especially since I'm working. I might have a better perspective if I was sleeping an extra hour. O WELL! Tonight at work one of my co-workers ... Read more

I have a mirror just outside my bathroom, no matter how hard you try not to, you get a validation every time you come out of the bathroom. I saw myself a bit ago as I emerged in my baggy jammies and thermal shirt. I look slimmer. I did measur... Read more

Today's Beck is Exercise. I have an appointment with my trainer at 6p.m. I went yesterday and played racquet ball with my son. You can really work up a sweat doing that in short order! Had a fun time. I really do like exercise, maybe not t... Read more

In yesterday's blog I stated that I had not lost. This a.m. down 1.2lb. The thing is, our weight fluctuates. If I weigh in after my all night shift I'm up significantly, 5 lbs. I have some pedal edema and eating is a mess on nights. I never... Read more

I seriously can not believe it's been 5 weeks since I started Beck Diet Solution. So much has changed. I did my weigh in today and had no change on the scale. I worked out with my trainer yesterday so might have some water retention in my sore... Read more

OK bear with me a little. I do not leave for vacation until March 10 2016, but I actually started to feel a little anxiety just thinking about it. I'm pretty sure my panic is coming from the fact that I am measuring travel with where I'm at tod... Read more
