So, I should be posting about week three of The Beck Diet Solution right now, only I have not finished week three of The Beck Diet Solution. I don’t even remember why or when I stopped, only that I kept meaning to read the next chapter, but I stumbled over some Superbowl guacamole and chips on my way to the bookshelf, and they fell right in my mouth! I know, crazy, eh? Blah blah blah, excuse-cakes. I had a cold, a toothache, five million freelance projects. Whatever. I think mostly my dopamine levels dropped, and my brain did not see this as a fun new thing anymore and I was less motivated to keep reading.
But, now I feel really guilty! Because people have asked me, “PastaQueen, where is you post about the third week of The Beck Diet Solution?” And I’m having flashbacks to freshman year of college, honors class, when Professor Tunberg is asking me what I thought of chapter four of The Odyssey, which I have not read, and I make some strange analogy about Kirk Douglas and Michael Douglas in relation to Odysseus and his son Telemachus, because they sort of look alike, you know, and OH MY GOD, do you think he knows I didn’t do the reading?
So here I sit, all guilty, and shamed. So, I will get back on the program and start week three, because FitBloggin’ is coming up and I would like to feel more fit and less blob-like. I have found one serious flaw in Dr. Beck’s book though. It doesn’t tell you what to do when you don’t feel like reading the book anymore. I think they need to place a big message on the back cover that says, “Stop ignoring this book!” I suppose I could whip out PhotoShop and make a revisionist back cover just for those purposes.
By the way, congratulations to Rachel from Minneapolis who won my camera giveaway! She has already accepted her prize, but I also want to thank everyone who entered. I really do appreciate the support and I wish I could send you all cameras.
