Stop using scales. Demon things that they are!

Friday, January 18, 2013

Reflecting on Sara's vlog from the other day (
dual.asp?blog_id=5206187) and asking myself why, when I'm starting to go to the gym regularly, why am I being so harsh on myself and then also allowing myself to eat more rubbish?

    I wish I could step away from the scale haha. But I weigh myself daily. I was doing great until June, then from June till Dec I gained back the 30 lbs I had lost. I think I got to myself mentally. I was looking at how everyone else was doing, and was bummed I was loosing so slow. What I should've done which im doing now, is looking at my small victories. I sort of struggled this week myself, I was bouncing back and forth with the same dang pound. So I looked at what I did right and said yay me. My husband brought home a Velvet cake cupcake with cheese cake frosting I think it was Tuesday he did, and he asked if I wanted it. I said no I will pass. Later he asked me again, and again I said no thanks. He ended up having it haha. But to know that I gave that up was a victory all on its own.
Own your small success through the week. Exercising 4 times during the week is amazing, but try a new exercise u wouldn't normally do and then say yay me, I tried something new and im feeling good about it now.
And your right, getting stocked up with healthy options is KEY! Your more likely to sit down and think do I need this, and your more likely to say no and go to something healthier.
Yay for getting that part you wanted! :) sounds like a lot of fun!
