collecting data for finetuning the new phase of my journey

Tuesday, February 23, 2021

I moved my smart scale from the bedroom to the bathroom, and maybe it helps me to weight myself more often for a while. I don't plan to do this on the long term, just to tide me over this time where I am finding balance with my higher calorie routine and the process of detaching myself from the dieting mentality that is making me sick (figuratively speaking, but sometimes I feel it actually is affects my mental wellbeing too much too).

I am at a really foreign terrains for me right now. I probablyhave always had a bit unhealthy relatioship with food,but I think that only recently it has started to bother me more and more, and I want to heal it. I also want to find a way to maintain my weight and - once i get them where I want them - my body fat % and muscle mass as effortlessly as possible.

So weighting myself more often, how it serves these goals? To be honest I don't know if it does, but since I usually measure weekly at most, and since smart scales are known to be very inaccurate especially with the measurements other than weight, I though it might help me to detach from stressing over the little fluctuations if I see that they truly fluctuate every single day, and also this way I will get more accurate data, as my scale's app can calculate better averages. I am at a point where I am more like fine tuning everything than trying to make huge changes, and I feel like having this more accurate data could help me. I don't know if it will, but I will give it a try, and if I get obsessive aout it, I will go back to weighting myself less often. And lets's be honest, I am a nerdy scholar who loves diving into this kind of stuff, haha!

Today is Pilates day, and tomorrow will be lower body weights. Well actually toorrow's strenght training video is for posterior chain, the whole back side of the body, not just legs. I am looking forward to it! Then after that is again Pilates day, and then maybe whole body dumbbell workout, or a fun new to me workout method called primal movement. It's super fun, but I have hard time deciding if it can be counted as body weight resistance training or is it more like cardio, ha ha. Challenging never the less!

I ended up making two actual warm meals yesterday, usually I only eat one per day. I stuck to my calories, and felt really satisfied. Maybe I should do this more often.

There I have leftover macaroni casserole, beetroot "meat" balls, sugar snap peas, and mung bean sprouts.

Here's part of the nutritional information of the meal the BiteSnap app gives me:

And this is how my whole day was yesterday, it was really good!

This is actually not very typical day, I usually get much more carbs and sugars. It was interesting to see how having two proper meals rather than one proper meal and snacks affected these values, they certainly look better, something I didn't see in advance.

And this chart show the total calorie intake from the past 7 days:
