Day 41 - The Beck Diet Solution

Beck says, "Make a New To Do List".

The list should be of all the new habits you've learned and the ones that are going to keep you on the weight loss straight and narrow and make you successful.

She lists activities to do daily, weekly and "as needed".

Here are my lists.

Exercise each day. Aim for 30-45 minutes.
At least 90% of my calories must come from whole, real foods.
Drink 8 glasses of water each day, minimum.
Spend 10 minutes each day reading my response cards and mentally preparing for the day ahead.
Read those blogs that inspire me, make me laugh and teach me something :)
Spend some time reading something I enjoy every night before bed. 

Weigh in!
Review my food journals and blog entries and see where I can improve next week.
Blog at least 3 days a week.
Menu plan and try one new recipe a week.
Get out of the trailer (at work) at least 3x a week during lunch.

As needed
Review my response card.
Check in with my diet coach.
Ask for help when I need it, with work, with home stuff, with anything!
Give myself a reality check when I start to get overwhelmed.

These are mostly things I do now but the reminder to stay the course was good.
