This week was good on all fronts: private life, work, food and exercise.
Kids are traveling, making steps toward adult life in different ways: both organized their trip without any help from us, and DS went with his girlfriend, DD pays everyth... Read more
Most of the time, when I eat well, sleep enough, don't drink alcohol, follow my exercise plan and meditate daily, I experience a very pleasant state of mind: peace, calmness and inner bliss. At the same time I feel alert and full of energy.

I had a good week, both in my private life and at work too.
Exercise went well, there was an extra evening walk with husband, but I skipped 2 morning yoga workouts due to work schedule and did not do them in the evening because I was lazy.

In the past 2 weeks I noticed my tendency to eat unplanned bites standing,
the problem with this behavior is not the extra calories.
Nothing is wrong with a big slice of watermelon or a very small cup of ice cream.
The problem is the more ... Read more
These are the last ones of my old weigh loss phase journal series,

My craving log and Beck Day 13 Overcome Cravings response cards were waiting for me on my desk, but I didn't need them tonight.
When I was finishing my watermelon slices after dinner, I quickly decided dessert is one square of dark chocolate a... Read more
So, after last week's mild evening overeating episodes I decided not to wait until I'm in trouble,
instead this morning I pulled my old Beck D13 Overcome Cravings, placed it on my desk where I eat dinner, and made simple log to record what hap... Read more
Eating was OK this week, but far from perfect.
Almost all evenings I ate a few bites of bread standing in the kitchen - at least alarm LEDs were blinking in my head, I knew I'm on the edge of provoking cravings and overeating.
Thanks to tha... Read more
Early April I stopped eating meat regularly.
I only eat a small portion of meat when someone (usually DS) cooks for the family, especially to honor the cook and show my appreciation. I don't miss it.
To make sure I get enough protein and nut... Read more
Good week again.
Took 3 days off, and spent 2 days - 2 nights on self retreat at my parents' house, this was my 5th this year. As the house is on a hill, and the back door of the garden opens to a hiking trail, my retreats always include sever... Read more
This was a good week again.
I complied with my plan all week except 2 times: accepted a chocolate wafer from boss at work one afternoon, and accepted 2 small slices of leftover pizza from DS after dinner once.
That is fairly good compliance,... Read more

Otherwise eating, exercise, meditation and work went well, and I have been in a good mood.
So, I only read my Advantages Response Card, titles of all other re... Read more
