yup, it's my life...
i stepped on the scale today, after 3 days of eating healthy, in my ranges, and working out, and it says that i have GAINED almost a pound. no, i know it isn't muscle, not yet at least... i have, in the past, checked my weight every day, so that i would stay on track, my way of being accountable. but days like today, so early on the new path of a new life style, that it really is a hindrance.
but as i got off, feeling down in the dumps, i thought, wait a minute, the scale only has power if i give it power. i am not chained to the scale, "it's my life" time is too short to let it affect me. i see the number, BUT more importantly, i know what i have been doing these past few days, and i am doing what i want... eating healthy and in moderation, and i am exercising, and doing karate. today i even did yoga! (believe me when i say, yoga is NOT for pansies! but that is another story for another day)
in the end, it is up to me, it always has been. "I" was the one who chose to eat junk fast food, not exercise, feel sorry for myself... the consequences are very low self esteem, being unhealthy and depressed. now i am eating right and healthy, exercising, so there will be a better out come. it is up to me...
