Beck Day 20 Getting back on track
Thursday, October 01, 2015      4 comments

It's all easy when you are home, doing your normal routines. Going to the gym, cleaning and doing stuff around the house or job, but how easily it changes when stuff is thrown off kilter by random events. I love the pyramid, the binge, starts... Read more
Beck Day 19 STOP fooling yourself
Wednesday, September 30, 2015      6 comments

This isn't such a challenge since last January (I bought a food scale, which is annoyingly always out on the counter) and I have been working on measuring every little morsel I eat. I must confess a semi rare divergence when measuring some thin... Read more

Beck Day 17/18 I am combining these. I am almost OCD about measuring my food for the last 2 months, so to over eat is rare. I did eat a huge salad a couple days ago and felt a bit "tight" bellied afterward. At any rate, tonight I'm going... Read more

Day 15~~~weigh yourself. Since I generally weigh in Monday but work night shift tonight I weighed in today. I prayed (really did) as I stepped on my scale. Happy to report I was down 1 lb., one WHOLE pound!!! (I've been losing .5 most weeks).... Read more

Grand daughter and her momma are going kayaking with me today. I woke up really early, couldn't get back to sleep so made a finger food picnic for our outing. Hummus, celery sticks, peanut butter, red pepper slices, apples, some crackers and st... Read more

I have an immense appreciation for a grocery store here in the Chicago area, Pete's Fresh market. It has this HUGE produce area just inside the front door. The store is owned by Mexican American's who have incredible standards. Everything in ... Read more

So, short story long. Last evening I had a plan to go see my grand daughter (Arielle) , and her mom (Erica) who I haven't seen in almost 2 years. It was a bad break up and daddy hasn't seen her for 1 1/2 years. MAJOR ISSUES. I said I would d... Read more
Day 13 of my Beck Journey
Tuesday, September 22, 2015      0 comments

(Dramatic reading) Cravings, (da, da,da, daaaaa) what more can cause fear in the heart and mind of dieters. Lurking in the kitchen, the break room at work, unexpectedly raising it's ugly little head. Ah, but do any of us call ourselves diet... Read more

I have tried to juggle and it ain't pretty. Generally, I end up getting hit by random flying objects. That's pretty much how this nutrition, exercise and weight loss thing goes. I get nutrition up in the air, add exercise and then ok, all's go... Read more

I think I have this one. I am nursing a glass of water as I write this because my tummy is feeling wonky. I am most certain it isn't hunger. TMI alert... Read more

Got off night shift this a.m. and went to breakfast with the girls. It was a rough couple nights. Short staff, sick, sick, sicker patients. There's is so much emotional fatigue among my co-workers. (won't share the war stories) The sleep tha... Read more

Looks like fresh salsa! It's "unseasonably warm" here in Chicago and yet fall is definitely in the air. I'm always a little saddened when the fal... Read more

I'm not sure that I have wholly wrapped my head around an exercise plan but I did walk my dog this afternoon We did 1.23 miles at a 3 mph rate for 25 minutes. It's kind of his route...lots of good smells and dogs to visit. I did write down a ... Read more
Flying by the seat of my pants.
Monday, September 14, 2015      5 comments

My M.O. for nutrition/diet/feeding the family, has always been a fly by the seat of my pants kind of situation. If you asked me what was for dinner at 5 p.m on most days I would not know. I do keep a lot of staples available to make food so I... Read more
Beck Diet Solution Week 2 day 8
Saturday, September 12, 2015      4 comments

I am going to have to take a couple days to work on this. It's hard for me to do schedules. I only work, at this point, 2-12 hour night shifts a week and there is very little else I do with my life. It's sort of free flowing, I sleep irregula... Read more
