Weigh scales can be addictive ... 2 week challenge continues

Thursday, January 12, 2012

I didn`t realize how addicting the weigh scale was... I had told myself that i wasn`t going to weigh myself again until my 2 week challenge had ended. but then i couldn`t get it out of my head... What if I`ve lost... I really want to know... I caved! I weighed myself, thankfully things had moved in the proper direction and didn`t change my mood for the day. Seriously though, how sad is it that i couldn`t even make it one day without stepping on the scale!! I have 4 days left to my challenge and I am not going to weigh myself until then. It really freaks me out that I am so dependent on it and I know it affects my mood for the day. I`ve got to try! emoticon Even with it being a good number on the scale though I had to catch myself and change my thinking. I actually said to myself ``Oh that is a good thing, I can have a treat`` What!!! No wonder I can`t loose any weight especially with that train of thought. A moment of self-awakening for sure!

2 week challenge - day 9 (Wed. Jan 11)
Did well with eating until dinner time... when I made my family a turkey dinner. I felt so overstuffed after the dinner it was an effort to get anything done. I decided to forgo doing dishes and head to the treadmill. I fiddled for a little while but when a new show on tv started up, so did I. I walked for just over 5 km and felt great afterwards.

day 10 (Thurs. Jan 12)
Have done really well again today. I`m starting to like this feeling of control that I am gaining. Managed to eat just over 1300 calories and did my first day of Bootcamp. It feels great! Bootcamp was 55 minutes in length and a variety of strength and cardio stations and intervals. It was a super workout! good thing I`ve been working out for a little while or I`m sure I wouldn`t be moving right now. emoticon

    It is a hard habit to conquer. Just remember if you feel better you are doing better and the scale does not matter.
