The scale - My Nemesis
Wednesday, February 22, 2012
I must admit that I thought the scale and I would fight this morning for my weekly weigh in. I knew that I did not eat as healthy as I should have over the weekend and did not workout as much as planned, but when I stepped on that little monster, it told me I had lost 1/2 a pound during the week. I had expected to engage in a vulgar dialogue with the beast and let the little monstrosity know what I really thought about it, but then it surprised me that the running I had done over the weekend made a bit of difference. Then set in the brief moment of regret that I could have lost more, but that was quelled knowing I expected to use the holiday weekend as a bit of a vacation from the diet, work, school, and the other pressures of life to focus all my attention on the time with my family. I will take whatever the cost to have more weekends like that.
