The Scale as a Reward? Hmmm....

Monday, April 22, 2013

When I am focused on weight loss where I trying to exercise consistently and track my food, I get focused on the scale. I start to weigh myself every day and starts to become an addiction of "I'll just weigh myself today but I'll skip tomorrow" than tomorrow comes and I do it all over again. To break this cycle, I have to ground myself from it for a while.

I have been thinking I want to get back to working out every day. I really enjoy how I feel the rest of the day. I feel like ME. I need to make much more of a commitment to ME. I also eat healthier I've noticed for the rest of the day when I've exercised in the morning.

So, I think I am going try to work out for 5 days in a row. I don't know the last time I did that. This past week I did 3 days in a row. It's possible with a little thinking ahead. So, in return for working hard for 5 days, I get to weigh myself. Rinse (rest) and repeat. Until it's a habit.

On a side note, I have a choice of two paths. One path I can become an AmeriCorp position where I can get an educational stipend, no other jobs while being an AmeriCorp member and no secure job after I am done with the commitment.

The other path is to go back to school for a Doctorate in Physical Therapy. Even through I'd be going even more in debt (not too keen on that), I think it would help in the long run. I want my children to be secure. Right now, my finances are shaky and I am not sure where I would get a job that would make them so. I simply do not have the credentials. I think I will like my new job as a PA as well. But, honestly, that cannot be a career either. Whether I go into nursing or physical therapy or something else, I know I need to get more classes in chemistry or physics. So, I have been asking around to which college in the area would be best for me. I think it will be the community college. The two classes I NEED to get into those programs, the community college has without really affecting my work schedule. That's a WIN! The next step is meeting with admissions of both college to make sure the courses would transfer and all that.
