Covid Induced Weight Gain? aka Fall down Eight Times, Get up Nine Times

Monday, August 03, 2020

My motto

It is tough coming back ........... ugh ..... But with working at home, sitting at the computer all day long, emoticon on phone calls,,,,, lack of activity,,,,,, I now have gained more weight than I ever had before,,,, ,,, Let's call it "COVID" Induced Weight gain from being quarantined !!! Being quarantined decreased my daily physical activity (walking to and around work building & walking around Disneyland on the week-ends), "Binging" TV shows emoticon and increased my "boredom" snacking. emoticon

My new "adventures" include trying out new foods and snacks. Cooking more but baking sweets as well. emoticon

I could go for walks around my neighborhood, instead of my old stomping grounds (Disneyland) and I could do yoga via YouTube ...... but nope,,,, I work and work and then work on my house all day long. Take breaks to eat lunch and dinner..... and of course snack! emoticon

So I finally looked at my "bad habits" and picked two of them to work on,,,,, 1) not getting enough sleep and 2) snacking at night.

I am going to work on these two and start moving more....... I am not going to quit on myself or on my health! It would be so tempting to just give up but I won't.......... especially not now during this pandemic.

So I got knocked down again but I will get myself up again emoticon
