I’ve really catched a bad cold this time. I’m feeling better today but still not completely well. Yesterday was the worst day. I did go to work but when I got home I was tired and didn’t feel like doing much.
I’ve recently discovered the Twilight saga books by Stephenie Meyer and borrowed the movie Twilight yesterday from my friend K. so R. and I watched that one yesterday evening.
Tonight I have a nail appointment.
Work was irritating, there was a network error which means I couldn’t do anything on my PC from lunch till I went home. And as I’m an organized person I didn’t have anything to file either. Of course the internet was down too so couldn’t do that either.
Good news is that I move to a different office within 3 weeks and this time I’m getting an office alone. I’m very happy about that because I like sitting alone, especially when I’m busy.
I haven’t been exercising either. I’ll take the day off tomorrow too and will hopefully be well enough on Thursday to go for a run. The stupid thing is that I’m feeling guilty for not working out even though I can’t help it being kind of sick. Do you have this feeling too when you’re not well enough to train?
Beck’s Diet Solution:
Day 10: Set realistic goals
Basically this is about taking small steps and celebrate them when you reached a goal. I have to lose 7 to 10 kg (15 to 22 lbs) but the book tells me to set a small goal like 2,5 kg (5.5 lbs) and when I reach that set another goal so who am I to refuse and my next goal will be losing 2.5 kg
Day 11: Discover the difference between hunger, appetite and an urge to eat.
You have to fill in a form for a day for your three meals and write down if you are hungry, have an appetite or an urge to eat. You have to fill it out before, during, right after and 20 minutes after your meal. You have to grade your feeling and describe it. I haven’t done this task yet, I will do that next Thursday, it’s my day off and it’s easier to keep track of it at home than at work.
I still need to practice on eating slowly. I don’t do that enough even though I usually read my motivation card about this before dinner. But I’ll keep trying.
What’s for dinner:
No pics, my food is a bit boring lately, too much of the same kind of stuff. I want to spend more time the next weeks on my dinner planning and find new recipes from my cook books. Right now I often choose the easy way and make something usual.
The Ultimate Diet Log:
Research report: The intense sweetness in diet beverages may contribute to conditioning for a high preference for sweetness, some studies suggest. So while diet sodas are a better choice than sugar-sweetened sodas, unsweetened drinks like water and tea are best.
I have to disagree on this one since I’m abandoning all diet stuff from our foodstyle due to the aspartame.
Get an office for me alone and feeling better.
