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.

    You can get back on track. There are lots of workout on youtube.com for beginners, seniors and advanced. Using these helped me lose 4 of the 5 gained during Christmas. We seem to have plenty of time while staying home so much more. emoticon

    I can relate to the overeating and exercising less the past year. When it warms up outside I think it'll help. We can at least get outside more.

    We have freezing temps and snow and ice on ground that keeps me from working out outside. Gym is closed so I try to improvise at home but getting tired of that. I've had first vaccine shot and miss my gym but plugging away. Best wishes.
