Beck Is Working for Me Again
Monday, January 18, 2016      15 comments

Yesterday I used "NO CHOICE" effectively at least 10 times. It enabled me to stick to my food plan. Despite the fact I resist setting up a food plan, I just proved to myself it helps me. My recent pattern has been one or two good eating da... Read more

Sunday, January 17, 2016      14 comments

I could do a whiny, griping blog today, full of excuses, but no one, No One, NO ONE wants to read it, even me!! For one thing, I have so much health to be thankful for. I visited Aquagirl08 in the rehab facility yesterday. She is going thro... Read more
Me, the "Young'un" Today
Saturday, January 16, 2016      12 comments

You can't do everything. I gave up going to Disney World with family today in order to lead my new Galloway group. Since I'd been to Disney 3 times since Christmas and there were 3 adults to watch 2 kids, I thought they'd be fine without me. And... Read more
All Good

I just got back from a 3.33 mile outing. I did a walking warm up, ran-walked :30/:30 for 2.5 miles and cooled down. I had very little discomfort. Could not even feel the problem area most of the time. Going to ice it just in case, then get my ni... Read more

So much going on here: * It is cold! I had to turn on heater and get out long-sleeve shirt and jackets. Makes me want to eat. *Granddaughter missed 2 days of school and is still coughing a lot, but went today. It is "early release" day, s... Read more
Negative Motivators
Tuesday, January 12, 2016      12 comments

I added a Beck "worth it" card today. I know that the best motivators are positive. By being a healthy weight and fitter I am healthier, I look better, and I am more confident. I have 20+ specifics but they all pretty much boil down to health, a... Read more
The Nicest Niece Achieves an Awesome Goal!
Monday, January 11, 2016      15 comments

I'm having some challenges today (sick grandchild, no hot water due to leak, pulled groin, and scale not where I want it), but there is a bright light in my life and I want to celebrate vicariously! I introduced my niece to Galloway running a... Read more
Healing Thoughts
Sunday, January 10, 2016      16 comments

Darn. I think I've strained my groin. Time to take it easy. And I was just getting out my 5K training plan to start the speed work to compete on March 12th at Senior Games. This may be a year I participate rather than compete. Could we worse -- ... Read more

Note to Self: Remember This Blog
Friday, January 08, 2016      14 comments

I'm reading my Beck Advantages Response cards and my cards addressing sabotaging thoughts at least daily now. I'm finding it really helpful and surprisingly motivating. Just skimming the Skinny Rules book put some ideas in my head (drink a glass... Read more

Thursday, January 07, 2016      12 comments

Just a minute to blog. Weight was 128.8 this morning = better! Much better. Feel strong, healthy, determined, hopeful. One blog I read that stuck with me said that the writer knew she had more binges in her. Well, I don't want to assume tha... Read more
More Talking to Myself About Recovery, Thinking, and Beck Blue
Wednesday, January 06, 2016      9 comments

Yesterday's rambling blog focused more on the food I've been eating than the thoughts I've been thinking during my recent food struggles. The food is very important, but so are the thoughts. Beck cards help motivate me with advantages of the hea... Read more

The kids are back in school and the Christmas tree is stored again for another year. Back to routine! This was my roughest holiday season in 6 years, but not all that bad. I'm at 130.4 pounds today, just .5 over my stated range of 122-129.9. I'l... Read more
