I wish I didn't have to come up with a title

Tuesday, February 16, 2010

I am disgusted that I keep having to use titles like "Starting Over", "Back to it", etc.

I'm feeling good that I 'fessed up about my bad week last week so I can move on. It's interesting to feel more accountable to people I've never met than to my own spouse. Go figure.

Anyway, I took Cheryl's advice and faced the music and I'm up 3 pounds. Back into the 160's for me!

I too am going back back to the Beck book.

I know that when I stop reading my cards things start to go haywire. I start feeling "entitled" to the bad things, and I start thinking "this once won't matter."

I guess I'm not ready for "automatic pilot" yet.

BTW Vandal, since I'm 'fessing up, you won the alcohol challenge for February. Yup, it was a MESSY WEEK. emoticon

But I'm ready to shake it off and move onward and upward.

My knee is still bugging me so the Spandex Nazi will have to have her class without me...but TC and I will walk 3.5 miles this morning and then go visit the neighbor in the hospital.

I'm going to have a great day today, and I'm going to be accountable!

    I had a bad 2 days. . .went on my mini trip and well, ate at Cheesecake Factory and it was no holds bar. Ugggh! Like you, I'm back at it again and heck, I just started! LOL! I think it's more important that we're back rather than never coming back. Wishing you a lovely week!!!

    It has been said that confession is good for the soul.
    However be kind to yourself.

    "Starting Over" or "Back to it" is actually a good thing. You are refining and learning new skills. Each time you revisit Beck's you become stronger. You reinforce and refine what you have learned and incorporate new skills.

    How long does it take to learn a new dance routine? Do you "get it" on the first try? No, because it takes practice. With each practice it will become easier and more familiar.

    Have you read "The Spark"? I'm enjoying it very much and it very helpful. I have the Beck book but I haven't cracked it open yet.

    True Confessions; that's seems to be what we are all doing this week. Drat that February anyway. Maybe it's a good thing we have all cycled around together. I think Freelady made us feel ashamed of our lack of sticking with the program as it was intended. Ever so slowly little bit by little bit we each thought we could handle our own adapted version of Beck's.

    We are suppose to get older and WISER. Guess I'll be working that angle for a while. Wise enough to just follow Beck's the way I should because she has the PHD, not me.

    I understand about the "messy week" doesn't mean it's okay but I know where you're coming from.

    Since we both seem to be stuck in this rut we really do need to start Beck's over and LIVE IT and BREATH IT. We both had soooo much success when we focused on it. Let's follow the Beck's plan everyday religiously for the next 30 days - no exceptions no variations and we'll look around and see where we are on March 18th. We don't have to keep up with each other in the book but we have to make the Beck's process primary in our life everyday.

    I know that's a little loosy goosey of a challenge but I really mean we just do what we did in May/June of 2009 you know find that spark again. What do you think?

    I guess the only good news and it's not really good news, is that I finally won a challenge from you!! That's never happened before.

    We can to this TG - we just really need to WANT IT MORE and to stop being so forgiving of each other just like we promised.

    Sounds like you have a focus and a plan! Great!

    "Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense."
    attributed to Ralph Waldo Emerson, US essayist & poet (1803 - 1882)
