I had a realization the other day at the grocery store: I've been buying a pound of butter every week. This means we (ME) have been eating a pound of butter every week.
I don't know if Nick knows 99% of my infatuation with Sherlock is due to infatuation with glorious Mr. C. I guess he does now. LOOK AT HIS EYE CRINKLES.
I mean, I'm trying to gain weight, yes, but must I do that by ingesting that much butter? Probably not. So I'm going to back down on the butter. I'll replace it with healthier things, I promise. Did you know you can eat a muffin without butter? It is physically possible. Today, I used peanut butter instead, so.... yeah maybe not going the right direction there. Oh well.
I'm also just trying to rein in my eating in general. Don't worry, I'm not going to swing back to my old ways, but I do want to get some of the out of control eating under a little control. Some of the ladies on the HA boards say that most of us, even when we let ourselves eat everything, don't end up going overboard, but I counted calories the other day and I was at nearly 4000. That's not going to work, and that IS going overboard. Also, I'm pretty much just eating everything, regardless of how terrible it makes my stomach feel. I mean, I have to have dessert at lunch, right? And if my only choice is a gluten- and dairy-laden cookie, then I should have 2, right?
So yeah. Just need to get back to a style of eating that doesn't leave me with stomach upset every day of my life.
And let's end on a happy note. Sleepy puppy. Aww.
