Good week

Sunday, November 23, 2014      3 comments

My second run after blood donation (day 7) was uneventful. I paid attention not to push myself uphill, but I ended up with my usual pace (9:48 min/mile). My Anti-Evening-Overeating Plan is working very well, I managed to follow 6 times ... Read more

Strange run

Thursday, November 20, 2014      12 comments

Due to work schedule I had to cancel my Wednesday and Friday runs, and run today, on Thursday instead. This is a work at home day, so I drove to up the hill, dropping off DD at work at 7:00. Weather was lovely, 6 oC / 42 oF, sunshine, muddy ... Read more

Tuesday update

Monday, November 17, 2014      10 comments

My Plan to Avoid Evening Overeating is working well. On work-at-home days it is usually not 100%, but I don't mind as those days are low risk anyway. Today I weighed 63.6 kg - closest to my center weight in 10 weeks. There is blood d... Read more

My plan for the new Maintenance Challenge

Thursday, November 13, 2014      10 comments

I have been in a rut of evening overeating in the past few weeks. This really bothers me, because I know better, and I'm not hungry at all to start with. Then I get home, walk into the kitchen, grab whatever I like and return for more, in ad... Read more

100% mindful eating today

Monday, November 03, 2014      9 comments

Today I ate my 3 meals and 2 snacks mindfully. It was nice. I often eat my breakfast mindful, taking in the colors, texture and flavors of oats and fruit of choice. Today I did it with my eyes closed, focusing on chewing every bite. Mid... Read more

Maintenance without scale - Week 8

Tuesday, October 28, 2014      7 comments

Last week I posted late, so this week was only 4 days, and pretty much like the previous one was: all fine, except mild overeating in the evenings. But last night I did somewhat better with eating (grilled chicken, rice, steamed broccoli, s... Read more

Maintenance without Scale - Week 7

Thursday, October 23, 2014      8 comments

This update is two days late, normally I do this on Tuesdays, but I had very busy work days. I even broke my 60-or-so day login streak. Eating was not so good: mild overeating almost every evening, even during the day in the weekend / work... Read more

This week was good. Lovely sunny autumn weather, good walks and runs, and yoga outside on the terrace. Eating went well, cooked 3 times. A friend grows tomatillos in their garden and gave us some, and I made roasted tomatillo sauce - turne... Read more

Upper body strength

Saturday, October 11, 2014      10 comments

I used to do weight lifting with a barbell, but I replaced that with yoga, which I enjoy much more. So no lifting for about half a year. The only way I work my upper body is yoga, and it is enough to maintain the muscles: Read more

Mindfulness and lovingkindness meditation

Thursday, October 09, 2014      9 comments

Mindfulness is a good place to be. When I first read about it (here, in SP articles about mindful eating and walking) I thought "oh dear it sounds really boring, thinking all the time" and dismissed the idea. Now, 3 years later, several b... Read more

Maintenance without Scale - Week 5

Tuesday, October 07, 2014      11 comments

Time is flying! Week 5 was very good. Ate well, did all my workouts, slept well. On Sunday DS and me made sushi (from scratch) and it turned out very well. I guess I haven't gained, even might have got closer to the lower end of my weigh... Read more

Working with tiredness and meditation success

Thursday, October 02, 2014      13 comments

Huh, the past 3 days were tough. Mon-Tue I had a 2-day business trip, and on Wednesday another one, doing quality checks. I knew in advance that by Tuesday night I will be dead tired, and Wednesday is 8 hours + 3 hours drive both ways. I hat... Read more
