Eating right and being active - it's not about the number on the scale.
Sunday, March 30, 2014
I have not weighed myself in 6 weeks because I felt like I would get too caught up in the number. I have been working out somewhat consistently and eating well 80% of the time and cut way back on processed foods and sugar.
I weighed myself this morning, and it has not changed! This felt great because I know if I did better with eating well and was more consistent with my working out I would have lost. But I don’t have that worry if I do something “wrong” I am going to gain weight. It also felt really good to not beat myself up with what the scale says.
My new plan is to weigh in one time a month just to check in – that is it. So now the weight is just a number but my life is about eating right and being active because that is what enables me to live my life to the fullest and be the kind of person, mom, wife, friend, daughter I want to be. Really- it’s that simple – it just took me almost 45 years to figure it out.
Have a great week everyone!
