Under the weather and high workload
Two weeks ago DH and DS had flu with high fever, and they are still coughing.
I escaped without high fever, but I got the congestion, sore throat and bronchitis, with mild to moderate fatigue. Not a good combination with crazy work schedule.

Today I hit a new low weight: 59.9 kg / 132 pounds.
I haven't been below 60 kg once during my SP journey, and the last time I was about 18 years ago, when my daughter was two.
I'm 6 kg / 13 pounds over my pre-pregnancy weight.

Cat Sabotaged my Morning Yoga
I have a start of a head cold, so decided to do a restorative yoga session after my morning walk.
So I did, and after 15 minutes, just when I was about to come off a lying pose, I felt the cat got on my belly, curled up and started to purr swe... Read more
Don't get me wrong, I think working hard, paying full attention to tasks is good.
But it is easy to overdo it.
Being focused and getting a lot of work done, making progress feels good. Feels so good I can easily end up wanting more and more,... Read more
Wonderful run on packed snow and ice
Yesterday's workday was so long I didn't get to do any exercise at all.
Did about 30 minutes of deep relaxation though, because I woke up too early and couldn't get back to sleep. Went to bed at 9 pm and had a good sleep.
Today I'm workin... Read more
So, I finished the Beck book.
Again, I recommend it to everyone who likes to work through self help books.
It is a good read, very helpful and makes sense.
After finishing, I don't have new information to read daily, and there are no da... Read more
Tough work week
Work has been crazy this week.
Started Monday at 6:30 in the office, because I had to leave early to take hubby for a medical procedure (which went well).
The next 4 days were client visits, meaning I didn't have any office time to do paperw... Read more
And still doing well
This week has been good.
I'm at Day 30 of the Beck Diet Solution, and I still find it very useful.
My weight goes sidewards, which is good because I shouldn't lose more.
On most days I'm below 62 kg (136 pounds, lower end of range), and at... Read more
Still doing well
This week has been good.
We have had mild weather a lot of rain.
Yesterday I ran in the woods. From my window weather looked harmless so left my running bag (extra shirt, jacket, hat, lip balm, snow grips) at home deliberately. 2 miles away... Read more
No cravings at all for 3 weeks
If you have any problems with cravings at all and you enjoy self help books, then you may find the Beck Diet Solution book just as helpful as I do.
I'm impressed with my progress. I had no cravings at all in 3 weeks.
For me, the worst foo... Read more
The "Stop Overeating" exercise
For today, the exercise was this:
-for one meal, put too much of my planned food on my plate, and one food that was not on the plan at all
-push extra food aside and leave it on the plate
-if tempted to eat it, use the anti-craving techniq... Read more
After 2 weeks of eating sitting down, slowly, noticing every bite,
and a few days of planning my meals for the next day and sticking to my plan, I weigh 2 kg / 4 pounds less.
My intuition is that this is the easy way.
Definitely easier... Read more
The Hunger Experience
Today I did Day 12 of the Beck Diet Solution book: did not eat between breakfast (bowl of oatmeal and oranges) at 9 am) and dinner.
The goal was to experience hunger, and rate the perceived discomfort every hour from noon, so that I can see hu... Read more
I'm still stuck at the "eat sitting down" revelation.
I always thought my problem was overeating in the evening.
Now I that I'm paying attention I can see that my problem is eating standing up when I'm in the kitchen. Apologies to those who ... Read more
I eat sitting down : )
I'm so tired after a long working day, I thought I'd just write a status update...
But decided to write a blog in the end.
I'm working on my new habit of eating everything sitting down, in other words no nibbling or "food tasting" in the ... Read more
