Last week I started with a journal (Moleskin!) with a page a day to note what time I got up, what I ate and when i went to bed. This is to help me have a better grip on sleep as I'm still trying to figure out what I need and what works for me. But it's also so that I don't have the excuse "I don't remember" "I forgot" "I don't feel like it" about filling in the nutrition information on Spark. I figure it's more important to be back in the habit of writing stuff down. I know the nutritional information and I know what I should nad shouldn't be doing.
I'd been thinking for a few days that I should also note my weight. Except I kept forgetting and having breakfast first, which gives incorrect results. Well, depending on how you look at it - I prefer to weigh before I eat.
This morning I clocked in at 119.2 kg. I'm kind of guessing as the scale couldn't find an exact number; the cat kept rubbing against my legs. But erm. That's not good.
I started at 130 kg about two years ago. To have gained back 15 kg of that is Not Good.
Things have been going nuts since I got sick in October, then the burnout, etc. But I knew perfectly well I couldn't continue to live on chocolate chip cookies. This is the proof.
Hopefully this is the kick up the arse that I need to help take care of myself better.
