So, short story long. Last evening I had a plan to go see my grand daughter (Arielle) , and her mom (Erica) who I haven't seen in almost 2 years. It was a bad break up and daddy hasn't seen her for 1 1/2 years. MAJOR ISSUES. I said I would d... Read more
Day 13 of my Beck Journey

(Dramatic reading) Cravings, (da, da,da, daaaaa) what more can cause fear in the heart and mind of dieters. Lurking in the kitchen, the break room at work, unexpectedly raising it's ugly little head. Ah, but do any of us call ourselves diet... Read more

I have tried to juggle and it ain't pretty. Generally, I end up getting hit by random flying objects. That's pretty much how this nutrition, exercise and weight loss thing goes. I get nutrition up in the air, add exercise and then ok, all's go... Read more

Got off night shift this a.m. and went to breakfast with the girls. It was a rough couple nights. Short staff, sick, sick, sicker patients. There's is so much emotional fatigue among my co-workers. (won't share the war stories) The sleep tha... Read more

I'm not sure that I have wholly wrapped my head around an exercise plan but I did walk my dog this afternoon We did 1.23 miles at a 3 mph rate for 25 minutes. It's kind of his route...lots of good smells and dogs to visit. I did write down a ... Read more
Flying by the seat of my pants.

My M.O. for nutrition/diet/feeding the family, has always been a fly by the seat of my pants kind of situation. If you asked me what was for dinner at 5 p.m on most days I would not know. I do keep a lot of staples available to make food so I... Read more

I am going to have to take a couple days to work on this. It's hard for me to do schedules. I only work, at this point, 2-12 hour night shifts a week and there is very little else I do with my life. It's sort of free flowing, I sleep irregula... Read more

Well here I am with my morning cup of coffee feeling a bit ashamed. I did a mini-binge last night. There were a couple glasses of wine and then a handful of chips sitting in front of t.v. For the first time EVER I am grateful for small hands.... Read more

I'm liking this Beck Solution. Today is Day 4 and I am giving myself credit hand over fist. Credit for eating at my counter. Little did I know when I bought the flowers that they would become instrumental in reminding me to sit and eat. I sa... Read more

Day 3 of my 10 days and I have a list (actually 2 lists) as long as your arm, of stuff to do. Lists keep my ADHD head focused and staves off depression when I become critical about lack of getting stuff done. I was awake again at 3 a.m. so ge... Read more
