Okay ... new scale on way
Thursday, February 18, 2021
I'm buying a scale to replace my broken one. it will be an eye opener and I'm pretty worried. I know I've gained some weight and I am worried that there will be a difference in accuracy because I'm not sure how accurate the one I had used to be.
my calories have been up and I've been moving a lot less (winter months makes it harder to want to be outside, but I've been trying ... yesterday was 40s and I went on a walk and it was brisk because it was windy!
I think some of my slackness in my eating habits is due to a bit of apathy that's occurring because I am fatigued from being home so much.
I was watching an instagram video of a fellow fiber artist and she was moving around working on a project and she'd put on weight. she's always been slender and she made a comment that she's gained 20# since the pandemic.
I don't think I've gained that much. but I may be up as much as 10 pounds. and I don't want to do that.
So, I think getting on a scale will be a "come to Jesus" moment for me. I am hoping it will help me to get back on track.
I have been eating pretty decently, but I do have my moments. extra calories with wine (it was easier to stay off wine because I had the rule only to have a glass when out to eat and we don't go out now) and I've been eating some more pasta and bread. not daily, but I have. those calories add up.
My daughter brings me a biscuit and roasted potatoes and vegan gravy from the cafe she works at on Sundays
I had a veggie burger and used pita the other day instead of eating it without bread.
