The Beck Diet Solution Going Forward

Sunday, February 01, 2015      7 comments

Up until now I had skipped writing about the last couple of chapters of what some around these blogs have been calling "Beck Pink"... i.e. The Beck Diet Solution: train your brain to think like a thin person. I deferred it because several o... Read more

The weather and running

Saturday, January 31, 2015      20 comments

MOBYCARP likes to say that there is no inappropriate weather for running, only inappropriate attire. Last week I mentioned my Thursday ugly run, when I went out underdressed and dang near froze my thumbs off in 2 and a half miles before w... Read more

Sometimes low tech is better

When I took my big sister to the hospital a couple of weeks ago for her follow up procedure, she handed me this "thing", "bag"... and it felt like a bean-bag, but it was warm. The look on my face was enough for sis. Last week, she called me an... Read more

Enough with the boring day counts, already!

Wednesday, January 28, 2015      22 comments

Yesterday was day 6 of my "getting serious" about eating over Spark's linked tracker range. Statistically and with the averages, I appear to be succeeding in my goals, which are to eat more in a controlled way to stop both the losses on the sc... Read more

Day 5 of Getting Serious about over range eating

Tuesday, January 27, 2015      20 comments

Perhaps I should title these "Getting Serious about seeking my training range"... because that's what this effort is all about: finding out how many calories I need to take in to MAINTAIN a healthy weight AND an athletic training schedule. ... Read more

Day 4 of Getting Serious about over range eating

Monday, January 26, 2015      19 comments

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

Sunday, January 25, 2015      23 comments

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

Saturday, January 24, 2015      28 comments

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

Friday, January 23, 2015      23 comments

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!

Thursday, January 22, 2015      18 comments

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. Being ... Read more

The Beck Diet Solution Day 42 - Practice, Practice, Practice

Wednesday, January 21, 2015      19 comments

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

Tuesday, January 20, 2015      16 comments

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". Daily: * She still wants us eating a healthful diet... Read more

Three topic blog

Monday, January 19, 2015      16 comments

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

Sunday, January 18, 2015      16 comments

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

Saturday, January 17, 2015      23 comments

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
