I have to confess: I did have a glass of wine on my friend’s birthday and some cashew nuts so I went over my daily total of Wednesday. Evenings like these are difficult for me, I always say to myself before I go I won’t eat or drink anything and I always do. I hope Beck’s Diet Solution will help me with this.
After I read on some blogs about Beck’s Diet Solution I decided to buy the book myself. It’s translated in Dutch. I know I need a mind change for some situations like parties, going out for dinner, being tired, being bored. Usually I eat when I’m in those situations. After reading the introduction I recognized some habits that I have and that the book can help me with. You have to read a chapter every day for 6 weeks and it includes tasks too. I will tell on my blog my experiences with this book. I will start with day 1 on Saturday.
This means I promised myself to be completely committed to read this book everyday, do the tasks, work out and eat healthy as much as possible for the next 6 weeks so I can make a jump start in 2010.
As far as my weight is concerned: I weighted yesterday and it’s still the same as last week. I wasn’t surprised since I picked up my WW program last Monday and I didn’t exercise much between my weight days.
Yesterday I had my first run of this year. I did 6K / 3.7 miles and started this year good: a new PR on the 6K. It was very cold however but good to be out running. I used my thermo shirt for my upper body and that stayed warm.
But stupid me: I didn’t buy a thermo pants. Result: my legs were so cold when I got home and red of the cold. I took a warm shower as soon as I got home but my legs were so cold that the hot water became cold water as soon as it hit my legs. After my shower I have been cold for at least 1 hour. So R. and I are watching our finances right now but I told him I bought one more thing: a thermo pants 🙂
Weather: 0 C / 32 degrees, cold, clear, sunny.
Average speed: 7.05 /km
What’s for dinner:
Yesterday a piece of meat, potatoes that I had to steam in the microwave with green beans.
Today I had noodles with tenderloin, sugar snaps, ginger, some oyster sauce and some soya sauce.
The Ultimate Diet Log:
By the numbers: 13.6: Number of ounces in the average beverage sold in the US in 1970. 21: Ounces in the average beverage sold today.
Food factoid: Soft drinks are the number one source of calories in teens’ diets and the only individual food directly linked to obesity.
The weekend has started: yeah!
To keep the body in good health is a duty… otherwise we shall not be able to keep our mind strong and clear.
