Blue Flash

Wednesday, October 05, 2011

I stepped on the scale yesterday and promptly did one of these to myself,

(The memory eraser Blue Flash from MIB)

I KNEW I shouldn't do it! I have eaten out WAY MORE then usual this past week... and I also didn't teach my SPIN class yesterday, which always makes me sweat out some of the water weight. Relatively, the scale was up 2.5 pounds since my last weighin a week ago!
I just looked at the number, said to myself "Scratch that!" and walked away. At peace!

And do you know WHY I was able to do that?
2 reasons:
ONE: because just 45 minutes earlier I was killing some shoulder and back weight lifting (following my new rules: go heavy for 5 or less reps) and saw a freaking LOT of definition in my arms that I had never noticed before (Those of you that know me, know that my arms have always been my body part that I think lacks SHAPE)

& TWO: because I was still SO PUMPED that I just finished the Kettlebell Meltdown workout faster (and stronger) then the 2 MEN I was training with! Little ol' ME!!!
The Zumba queen!!!
.... can I get a "HELLZ to the YEAHHH!!"?
(The guys even had to stand back at one point [to catch their breath] and just WACTHED me as I completed the 50 burpees. They commented on how I was kicking their @sses! My cardiovascular endurace impressed them... or maybe it just made them feel inadequate! HA!)
Whoooop WHooop!!!
That's a better feeling then any low number on the scale has ever given me!

And since this weekend if Thanksgiving for us Canadians:

I don't plan on stepping on a scale again for AT LEAST 2 weeks!

I forgot how little the number on the scale means when you are simply working out to stay healthy!!! (And I alreay know I AM HEALTHY, the scale can't do anything to confirm that.... The "Kettlebell Challenge" on the other hand... is a true test! hehehe)

I'm definitely sore from my workouts yesterday... but to be honest, it's a GOOD SORE! I can still walk normally and sit on the toilet! LOL

I'll just have to make sure to put a Zumba playlist together that doesn't incorporate a lot of squats in it today! hehe
This Zumba Mami needs an active recovery day!

    I haven't weighed in going on 4 months now and I am happy about that. I am working on how I look and feel and going from there. Will I weigh again? I am sure, but right now the scale means nothing to me. I would just depress me and I don't need any negativity. SCREW THE SCALE, Jess.

    Being a strong, fit, active woman that busts the balls of the guys means much more than that freaking scale.

    RAWK DIS ISH, babes! emoticon

    After this Just Lose It Challenge, I want to really focus on building my muscle back. I feel like I have been cardio queen way too long. I want to hit the weights and hit it hard! Too afraid to go heavy right now as it might lead to a gain. Come November, it'll be all about the weights! And I won't be hopping on the scale as much.
