OMG, Get Out Of My Head!

Sunday, January 17, 2016

Seriously people... there isn't enough room up there for more than one... Good Grief. emoticon emoticon All flipping week someone has questioned me on what I was doing in one way or another. Just leave me alone already! emoticon

Yes, my hand holds just under a 1/4 cup of diced peppers emoticon , that's why I grab a pinch more to toss in with my scrambled eggs. I CAN grab a pinch of 2 Tbsp of shredded cheese to sprinkle on top. emoticon I have been cooking since I was old enough to reach the stove on the step stool. I know my measurements! Grandma taught me well. emoticon

BUT... because I have had people question me all week, today I doubted myself and got out the measuring cups and spoons. I grabbed, pinched or poured into my hand what I normally do but instead of adding it to my food, I placed it in the measuring cups and spoons first. And you know what.... I WAS RIGHT. OMG... I was doing fine until the doubting monsters showed up. Seriously, why do I do this? WHY DO I LET PEOPLE GET INTO MY HEAD?!?!?!

The sad part is, it happens in all aspects. Are you sure you what leave then? Will we still get there in time? Are you sure that's what you want to do? I would think you would want to do this instead. Is this the right way to go? Why don't you eat this? Since you like A you should like B... I know what A and B tastes like and NO, I don't want either right now. Why are you doing those exercises? You're doing too much, you need to eat more. SERIOUSLY PEOPLE! GET OUT OF MY HEAD!!!

Ok, rant over. I'm jumping on my Total Gym that my sister gave me and see if I can figure out a good routine for me. emoticon I might even add jumping rope emoticon today in addition to my walk. AND NO! YOU ARE NOT GOING TO QUESTION ME ABOUT IT! If you want to say anything at all, give me praise for trying something new and DOING IT! emoticon

    I just smile emoticon and say, "this works for me!" emoticon

    I get angry when someone, like my Sister-in-Law, proceeds to tell the mother of a child with serious food allergy issues what and how she should cook. As if that mother hadn't already studied the problem in depth so she could feed and protect her child! Meanwhile, the SIL has a wacko digestive system, so she hasn't figured out her own issues. I may not have figured out what the child can and cannot eat, but I take the recipe with me to family potlucks and let the mother decide if her child can eat it.

    BTW, I realized I am very consistent measuring certain items by eye, or by hand, too. My hand is so small, if I pick up my handful of dried fruit and nuts, it always weighs 16 or 17 grams, and that is accurate enough for my tracking. And I can eyeball 2 oz. of pasta just as accurately. Let's just say we have a Special Talent, shall we? But I use a digital scale to measure many things - yogurt, for example. When the "serving" is set up to be measured in grams, it's so easy to adjust and log. Whatever works!

    Tell 'em to pound sand. My favorite is the "It's just this once" that I may hear 4-5 times a week. Yeah... No.

    If you want to magnify the snark, you could add "I'm trying to live healthy.. you should give it a shot."

    But that's just me...

    I understand what you mean. If I tell someone I'm trying to lose weight, they either watch or comment that I'm eating too much or too little. The whole point of telling your goals to people is to help motive you not to quit.

    I know just how you feel! I have people question me all the time too. I'm starting to think that it must have something to do with my body language or the way I talk. I want to be polite, but also want them to stop questioning my decisions. Wish I could just laughingly say something like, "I got this, don't worry!"
