Oh my, second embarrassing moment this week. I'm tapping away on my keyboard, relaxed in my onesie, I don't even think I had combed my hair, when my phone rings. Oops it is the man to clean my oven outside and I had forgotten that he was coming. Panic strikes. I can't run upstairs and change because the porch is glass and he would see me. Can I ask him to wait there until I put on something decent ? I decide to brazen it out and open the door apologising for my attire. He laughs and says he wish he was relaxed in his onesie too. Once he got over the shock he did an amazing job on my cooker and it looks shiny and new.
My weight seems to be sticking to me like glue. I check the internet and the Blood sugar diet focus group for tips on what to do. One of them is to check for calorie creep. Make sure that you are really weighing your food correctly and counting everything that goes into your mouth. Mmmmm that could be my problem me thinks. I have noticed that I 'taste' a lot when I am cooking and if I am feeling peckish I have grabbed a few nuts. I know they are high calories but they are low in fat. . .and that teaspoon of jam roly poly was probably a few calories too. According to my Fitbit I am walking around 2000 calories a day. I am definitely NOT consuming that many in my little titbits so I had assumed any additional calories I would use up in my exercise. Maybe that is not the case.
As I will be starting to create my own recipes I check out some apps for calorie and carb counting. After trying out a few I have decided to use Yazio. I can link it to my Fitbit and set my Calorie and Carb targets. It seems fairly straight-forward to use. I enter the items I have eaten today trying to list everything properly and I am dismayed to learn that I would have eaten nearly 1,000 calories. I resolve to be a lot more careful in the future.
My son and I were chatting last night. He is very into his fitness and advised me that when I hit a plateau to try to leave 14 hours between my last meal of the day and the first one the next day. I'm going to try this as well to see what happens, fingers crossed it helps. I have 3 days to work on losing something this week !!
It is really nice that he takes an interest and I cherish our little conversations we have when he comes home. It is a far cry from a few years ago when he was an angry teenager who thought he knew it all, as most of us do when we are that age. I tell him about eating the double decker and he tells me that he threw away a cake the other day because he took a bite and it wasn't as nice as he imagined it was going to be. We both agree, that from now on, if we are going to eat something naughty then it needs to be nectar in our mouths.
