Day 4 of Getting Serious about over range eating
I have this image in my head of a stereotypical Jewish mama, chasing me (cast as a scrawny kid) down the block, shouting "Eat, eat!" I feel like I'm eating ALL DAY LONG. Oh, wait, that's because I pretty much am! Yesterday I finally succeeded... Read more
Day 3 and Redefining slow
I have to report failure in the goal to eat above the top of my range yesterday. I tried mightily, mind you, but that ten mile run, followed by meeting my son and walking from his house to the Pinnacle Bank Arena for the Husker Men's Basketball... Read more
Day 2 of Getting Serious about over range eating
Friday was an optional (in my mind) 2 mile day. I opted to rest, because I am planning on today's long and slow going 10 miles.
Since it was a "rest day", it was a lot easier to plan and achieve the eating over the Spark range. My rough g... Read more
Day One of Getting Serious about over range eating
Yesterday was an experience, for sure. Things I observed:
1. Linked tracker adjusts itself as the day goes on and the Spark Activity Tracker syncs. I started out planning about 500 calories over the high end of the initial range, and adde... Read more
Planning to eat over range - yes, deliberately!
Now that I've linked the trackers, I am seeing this pattern - on days when I don't have scheduled training, I am eating above the range that the tracker says, and on days when I have scheduled training, mostly in the range it says.

The Beck Diet Solution Day 42 - Practice, Practice, Practice
How does one learn to think like a thin, fit person? Same way one gets to Carnegie Hall! My single largest argument with Judith Beck's book, "The Beck Diet Solution: train your brain to think like a thin person" is one of vocabulary.
In a... Read more
The Beck Diet Solution Day 41 - Make a new to-do list
This is the day that Beck lets us loose from the training exercises to this extent: some of the tasks she'd been having us do daily drop off, and become "weekly, monthly, or as needed".
* She still wants us eating a healthful diet... Read more
Three topic blog
Topic 1: it's Beck weigh in report day for me... and I'm pleased to note that the scale *did* adjust itself. Last week I had an artificially high 120.9 on the scale, but seven day average at 116.3, and I was OK with that. I got myself back on ... Read more
The Beck Diet Solution Day 40 - Enrich your life
Day 40 is another topic that resonates with my personal philosophy of life, so it was not really a challenge for me. I think it harks back to my mother's attitude toward life: it doesn't matter what you weigh. You are an important human being... Read more
The Beck Diet Solution Day 39 - Keep Up with Exercise
OMG, if I thought YESTERDAY was a light day... this one was a total "does not compute" for me. And then I went on a group run this morning, and it took me down memory lane... I was not always so in love with exercise.
I got to the running ... Read more
The Beck Diet Solution Day 38 - Deal with a plateau
Day 38 is a light one for me. Plateaus are something we all experience... for me it's not just when the weight stays the same... it's when it stays in a narrow range. Since I'm in maintenance, the goal is pretty much TO be on a plateau! But w... Read more
The Beck Diet Solution Day 37 - Reduce Stress
A few words about Week 6 as an overview. Week 6 is about refining the skills learned in weeks 1 - 5. I can see echoes of "give yourself credit" in the Believe It day 36. And I'm going to write a bit more about Day 36 before moving on to Day 3... Read more
The Beck Diet Solution Day 36 - Believe it!
I'm now moving into the last week of the six-week program espoused in the book "The Beck Diet Solution: train your brain to think like a thin person". I haven't mapped days exactly, so it's taking me more than six weeks to blog my way through i... Read more
The first training class - Lincoln Marathon and Half Marathon
There are many training classes starting up around town. You see, coming up on May 3rd is our town's prime running event, the Lincoln National Guard Marathon and Half Marathon. It's a BIG deal. And not just for those of us who run it. It's a... Read more
The Beck Diet Solution Day 35 - Get Ready to Weigh in
Yesterday was actually my weigh in day, but given my behavior on Saturday and Sunday, it's an appropriate topic to write about. Preparing for what the scale might say when I KNOW I've been over-doing the food, and under-doing the exercise, i.e.... Read more
