The scale is my friend
Wednesday, February 06, 2013
OK so yes I'm a bit scale obsess! I know I shouldn't be and people say it's not healthy yada yada yada. I confess I weigh myself daily. I only track weekly, or monthly, depending on the place I track. It's when I get on it day after day week after week and month after month and it's not moving or moving in the wrong direction that I get so frustrated.
Well today is my weekly check in date, and I'm down 2 lbs from last week! That is close to 5# for the year. Now I'd wish I was was down more than just 5# for the year but at least I'm moving in the right direction, and at the pace I'd like to be moving at.
So how have I done it?
Lots of sweat and tears!
I'm working out 2 hours a day! Yes I said 2 HOURS!
I cut out or down, mostly the liquid calories, both morning, and evening.
I have finally found a good food eating pattern that is working for me. I don't like tracking so I like to find things that fit into my range for each of my meals/snack and then try and stick with them.
The biggest secret I gave up the skittles. 2 day's in a row. The scale right now is motivation to keep from eating any more.
Oh and one more strange trick I use is my body media is set with my weight about 5# lower than what I weigh at the moment. The theory is that is shows me burning calories at the lower weight thus needing to take more movement to burn that number. I don't always reach my goal calories burned but this way I come close and in reality I may actually be reaching it.
Today's activities are a little spin cycle this morning, with weights and track tonight.
