Weighing and Waiting Wednesday

Today I continue to be 87 kgs- no gain, no loss. So that is good.

As to the diet, I have not been eating very well, as I should have.

For one, there were those cookies sitting in my fridge, and they were homemade- and were so crisp and slightly burnt on the under, just as I like them. So I had a couple over a couple of days- making it an average of about 2 per day for about 3 days- and they were a good size of a cookie.

They there was the cup of tea beckoning me in the morning, when half asleep, I woke, to get breakfast ready for my husband, who likes a hot breakfast before he goes to work at 6 a.m. To get rid of my morning grogginess, I have taken to drinking a big cuppa of black tea with– about 3 teaspoonfuls of sugar- some days, when one does not do the job, I drink a second cup. This has been going on since November. I need to get rid of this habit. This is one of my new year resolutions.

And then there were the odd fruit here and there, that did not come into my diet chart.

As far as exercising goes, since I have no one to help me with housework these days, I have been doing it quite regularly on my own. Some research shows that housework can count towards at least the warm-up before exercises- so I have some to my credit.

This is good because I am not at all a housewifely person and add to it laziness, you have one volatile combination. But in my prelude to a new New Year, I have been doing some dish-washing, kitchen mopping, gardening, washing clothes, sorting clothes and making beds- chores that to most people would be mundane but are extra-special to me, because I almost never do them.

I tried to keep up with my December resolution of walking every day, and I did it except for the two days we had extra special rain, right on Christmas and on Boxing Day.

Perhaps these are the reasons why my weight has not climbed, though I had some dietary indiscretions.
