Sometimes the affirmations of confessions are startling

Thursday, October 08, 2015      23 comments

I was amazed by some of the comments to yesterday's blog. By how many other technical professionals who have had to battle the bulge (as I have), or for that matter, other intellectual workers in other fields... have "used" similar drugs to fue... Read more

Grumpy is losing about three days' worth of work trying to help somebody else out. Sigh. emoticon That happened M... Read more

Beck Blue Holiday Trap #2: The Wall to Wall Treats Trap

Tuesday, October 06, 2015      23 comments

Trap #2, The Wall to Wall Treats Trap is also a holiday classic: You can't avoid the holiday foods in the office kitchen. Well! This is one I have some experience with. Back when I was heavier, I was an "eat in secret" overeater. But st... Read more

Beck Blue Holiday Trap #1: The YOLO Trap

Monday, October 05, 2015      22 comments

#1 is The YOLO (You Only Live Once) Trap - You use holidays as an excuse to eat whatever you want. This is the classic celebration trap. Face it, there are some foods that only show up at certain events... folks ONLY make them for the ho... Read more

Beck Blue Chapter 8: Holiday Traps

Sunday, October 04, 2015      18 comments

How timely! It's October, and we are about to plunge into the season of temptation (for me, anyway). Starting when the Halloween candy hits the store aisles in AUGUST, for heaven's sake... all the way to New Year's, my old nemesis, SUGAR, and ... Read more

Saturday, October 03, 2015      10 comments

I did blog about Beck Blue (The Diet Trap Solution: Train your Brain to Lose Weight and Keep It Off for Good by Judith S. Beck Phd and Deborah Beck Busis) earlier in the week, on Monday and Tuesday, but I did not give the specific list of traps ... Read more

The best spectator seat for sunrise? On the run, of course!

Saturday, October 03, 2015      23 comments

I made it to the starting point at 6:30 a.m. on the dot. It was still dark. It was chilly, 40-something. I was better prepared for that than I was last week. I had on my running tights (the ones that proclaim me a goddess with the interior l... Read more

Quick pre-work blog

Thursday, October 01, 2015      15 comments

Hey, I've used that title before! But that's a good descriptor. Yesterday I left work promptly to make my appointment at the Chiropractic place. The drill was pretty much the same as a week ago. He asked how it went with the homework, wh... Read more

Just because you planned it, was it a good idea?

Wednesday, September 30, 2015      23 comments

Lunch out with my friend gave me a chance to practice those "eating out skills" that Beck talks about in the Pink book's Day 30. I did NOT fall into any of the travel and eating out traps described in the Blue Book's chapter 7. I went on line ... Read more

Off the grid

Tuesday, September 29, 2015      21 comments

We get SO dependent on our technology. I was playing with the Garmin again last night, when I was supposed to do a 3 mile "tempo" run, trying to get a "workout" defined in it, and then run that workout. I wasn't crazy about the readout it ... Read more

Sunday rest day

Monday, September 28, 2015      21 comments

The "official" training plan, the one for the Good Life Halfsy, has Sunday marked as a rest day... every... cotton-pickin'... week. Sunday as a rest day doesn't work well for me. I'm a weekend warrior... it's the only time I have to train "lon... Read more

Beck Blue Chapter 6: Family Traps

Sunday, September 27, 2015      15 comments

I think I'm liking Beck Blue's organization of the traps... it gives us a chance to work a "problem" area in context of the rest of our lives! My test scores from Chapter 1 in the "Family problems" section indicated that while this isn't a ... Read more

Finding Nemo... uh, the running crew!

Saturday, September 26, 2015      23 comments

There was this string of e-mails and FB posts, you see. The first one was pretty normal: The group will meet at 7 a.m. at trailhead X for 8 miles for both beginners and intermediates. Then the fun began: someone posted a question: "Th... Read more

A new kind of adventure

Thursday, September 24, 2015      17 comments

I mentioned in a blog in August going to have an "assessment" at a chiropractic spine and joint place that does something called "Active Release Techniques". This technique is "designed to rid injured areas of scar tissue". This center use... Read more
