The scale has been a source of nothing but baddd things for me. Everytime I step on it, even if I have lost, it depresses me that I am not losing faster, after knowing how hard I work. Then after seeing it's 'opinion' of my getting healthy, it makes me mad. It's like the person who is such as ass that they won't even admit that you've been getting healthier or won't compliment you. It's like that un-encouraging person in your life who you think you will never be able to make happy - I know enough of those people, and I don't need another one.. That's who the scale is to me. I think people rely too heavily on what the scale 'thinks', so... I have made an executive decision that I won't be using the scale very much (every 1-2 months only) because it hinders my motivation. I don't need it to validate me. I KNOW I work my butt of at the gym and am working on eating better. It's day by day. The scale is only one small aspect of a healthier lifestyle. I know I am losing weight and gaining muscle by how I feel when I am working out. I am not nearly as tired when I get done at the gym as I was in the beginning and I know it's because I am becoming a healthier person with more energy. I also know it because my clothes are getting baggier. That's my decision and I am sticking to it=o]
I am working on eating a lot of veggies, but I need some help. I want to try some of the ones that I know I love but don't know how to cook, for example -Artichokes. Any ideas? Any other veggie suggestions from anybody? I look for recipes but I find them overwhelming. I am pretty busy and I need quick(simple) recipes.
Anyhow. That's my blog for today. I am feeling reallllly good lately. I have been doing so good.. and it's been over 6 months of consistency - longest time for me ever! Yay me!!
Peace, Love and all that Stuff,
