Measuring & Family
Wednesday, October 02, 2013
Okay, overate a bit yesterday. Learned that I need to weigh and record some of my food beforehand rather than enter the information later and be floored at how many calories that means. I need to invest in plastic wrap...I have a digital scale I bought for estimating shipping costs on items, but I think it'll be a nice addition to my tiny spring scale for smaller items that call for only a few ounces or grams. If I wrap the scale in plastic I won't have to worry about the food touching it and both getting all icky. .....Then again, I guess aluminum foil works too, and we already have a roll and a half of that in the house. */rambling*
Next time an issue comes up with the food thing, I'm going to talk to my mom about it. I just need to make sure I keep myself in check so I don't escalate things into an argument like I'm prone to do when it comes to my mom...I love her, but our communication issues get me so hot-headed so quickly that I just make things worse. And it doesn't help that I haven't lived with her full-time in nearly a decade. A [non-confrontational] teen and their mom butting heads is one thing, but a mom and her mid-20s daughter who's been finding her spine over the years butting heads is a different story entirely. I have to make sure I help things get better instead of making them worse.
Also missed my walk yesterday. Will do so today...after I eat. I'm starving and due to a mini technological crisis this morning that took some time, I haven't had my breakfast yet.
