The first thing I’m working on is to stop snacking. Yesterday wasn’t a great day, but it wasn’t as bad as it could have been, so I’m content to just learn from it.

I’ve started to notice that my servings are too big at meals. But despite that, I think I’m losing weight. Certainly my jeans are looser.

I’ve decided I’m going to weigh in this Saturday morning. It’s time. I know it will not be good, but I need the accountability.

I discovered that my oats for lunch work out to about 250 calories. I’m happy with that. They fill me up, they’re cheap and they’re hot. Plus, quick and easy! It’s nice to know that I’m eating well at lunch, and I’ve at least got that sorted.

I’m actually saving quite a bit of money – and time – with my oats. They work for me, and I’ll stick with them.

I’m also thinking I’ll start walking home in the evenings on good weather days. I’ll make sure I have the workplace alarm details at home in case we get a sudden lockdown and I have to work from home. If I do that, I won’t have to lug my computer back and forth every night, which is doable on the bus but not if I’m walking up a great big hill.

Small steps, as they say.

I realize this has been a bitsy post, but that’s okay – I’m really writing for myself more than anyone else.
