I'm thinking about not weighing myself for the next 30 days so that I can continue to focus on all of the other successes I'm having.
I need to lose about 7 pounds to be within the "healthy" BMI range, but I'm really tired of focusing on those 7 pounds. Maybe if I take my attention off of them, they'll feel unappreciated and hit the road? I am sick of beating myself up for not seeing the number that I want to see on the scale, and if that number is going to make me so upset that I don't eat/feel cranky/eat "garbage" (even 100 calories of garbage is still garbage)/all of the above, it's just not worth my time.
Also, women's magazine-style, I have a beach trip planned for early August and I would like to look my very, very best...but they won't be weighing me before I wade out into the Pacific.
So, I'm thinking that I'll add some extra walking to my days (cardio without cortisol increase, amen), keep up the added toning/strength exercises I added to my routine last week, and make sure I'm eating enough. I'm also being sort of psycho about staying hydrated...I didn't drink enough water this weekend at all, and I am not happy about the way that looks or feels. At work I've been having 2-3 cups of green tea and at least 5 glasses of water every day, but when I'm home or running errands it's a different story. Time to change that plotline for sure.
