The scale plays mind games.

Sunday, September 01, 2013

I lost! The scale played a viscous trick on me.
So I ended up losing weight this week after all. I must have been holding 2 or 3 pounds of water weight. I'm not going to weigh my self again till next weekend. The scale plays mind games.

A non-scale victory I have to declare is that I have filled up a bag of clothes that are way too big for me now. It's a great feeling.

    I hate the scale. My husband has even started scolding me when I get on it before my weigh in. If I've learned anything recently, it's that I have to focus on those non-scale victories!

    The scale can play games, and you should only weight at most once a week, the same time and same day to get the most accurate changes in weight.

Congrats on the clothes too big, that is great!

Gained this week

Saturday, August 31, 2013

Well I gained 2 pounds this week. I know its cause I worked out too much because I stayed within my calorie ranges and met all my goals. It's ok though cause I feel good and know I'm loseing inches. I'll weigh myself tomorrow to make sure.

Sorry no Dave Pic today. I'm writing this while on the treadmill on my phone. Just some really light walking not enough to be considered cardio but I'm earning steps on my fitbit.

Have a great weekend!

SparkCoach: Daily Visualization: Imagine that you decline someone who offers you a tempting treat

Friday, August 30, 2013

Today, imagine that you decline someone who offers you a tempting treat because you know it won't fit into your food budget for the day. What do you say? How do you remain firm? How does it feel to know that you are in control of what you eat? Think about this scenario the next time you're tempted to give in.

This one wasn't hard at all today. We had a luncheon at work and the boss bought us Grady's Bar-B-Que. I swear I think my department would go into shock if they ate anything healthy. Anyhoo, I asked for a salad and I got it. I felt a little like the odd man out but I'm glad my boss was supportive and didn't push food on me.

I could have par taken in the bar-b-que but I planned out my cals for the day and I have a bottle of Dave Matthews Dreaming Tree Everyday wine waiting in the fridge waiting for me, allotted for and ready to go. It's been there all week. This delayed gratification thing is for the birds! I bought it last weekend but promised myself I could drink it if I made it thought this week! Works been crazy lately so it'll be a nice treat.

It feels awesome to be in control of what I eat to to be able to allow myself treats here and there on my own terms. And I wasn't really depriving myself either because even though I was surrounded by bar-b-que I was really happy with my rabbit food, I didn't feel a hint of craving. I guess its cause I kept my eye on the prize!

Have an awesome Labor day friends!

SparkCoach- Daily Community Task - Reflect on your current exercise program

Friday, August 30, 2013

Today's Program from Your Coach - How Too Much Exercise Can Backfire
Coach Jen Mueller
"Write a blog reflecting on your current exercise program. Are you exercising too much? Too little? Write out any changes you think you need to make to your workouts.

I went overboard with my work out this week. I went quite a few days straight without taking a break in between. So much so that I gained a little and I burned myself out. I HAD to take a break yesterday. I really wanted to work out to but I physically couldn't. I have to remember to take a break in-between day. I also started strength training again and for some reason when I strength train I gain weight. I kept trying to work out 5-6 days a week (like the recommendation) but when I do I gain or hit a plateau. I need to find balance again. I'm hitting the gym today but just cardio.

Tired Today

Thursday, August 29, 2013

I'm really tired today. I think I have to give my body a rest. I have one more hour at work then I get to jet straight home for once. This feels like the longest hour eva!

    I was tired Thursday too. I actually overslept. When I came home after work, I had to get my 10k steps in so I danced around - but I was sure dog tired. But it's Friday and the weekend beckons.

    Sounds to me like you definitely need a rest. That is just as important as your eating habits, and exercise. Our bodies know how to tell us, if we only listen.

Please take care, and rest up. emoticon emoticon
