After this weekend, I expected the scale to be up this week and it was.
Just a pound and a half, but it would have been a lot worse if I let the Screw-Today-I’ll-Start-Over-Tomorrow Mindset continue, which is easy to do as many of you know.
Sometimes I get pissed that weight is so easy to gain and so hard to lose. How come a few days of indiscretions easily result in increasing the number on the scale yet a few days of controlled healthy eating barely make a dent?
I don’t really have an answer and the more I think about it I really don’t care.
focus on the scale reading as my only measure of success,
look at it as one variable in my entire equation of healthy living.
I choose the latter.
This week I may have comforted myself with some chocolate and nachos but I also went to Crossfit 4 times, ran 6 miles, cooked numerous healthy meals for my family, watched my son bravely be evaluated for a brand new sport (who knows anything about lacrosse??) continued #YogaAday and was an example for my boys, signed up for the Crossfit Games, and committed to running 6 Tough Mudders this year.
I’d say it was a pretty darn awesome week! Why in the WORLD would I let some stupid number on some stupid scale tell me otherwise.
I refuse to do it and so should you!
Before I have you weigh in, there is a little business to take care of. If you have been playing along in this month’s DietBet, we have 2 days left to reach our goal of 4%. If you do, the site will email you instructions on submitting your final weigh in official to be validated as a winner. You only have to submit photos if you met or exceeded the 4%. I’ll do a wrap-up post once I have all the stats.
Unfortunately, I will not be hosting another game. It was fun but now it’s simply time to move on. I hope you guys understand.
Okay, enough bibble-babble! How was your week? Remember, focus on the positive even if the scale wasn’t your friend. We’re not in this only for the short-term scale changes. It’s about the long-term lifestyle! Right? :)
