i did good yesterday

Saturday, January 23, 2010

i managed to brush my knees off and get back up again and not let my thursday night binge affect my day yesterday. i was a bit over zealous though by deciding to step on the scale this morning and i did not enjoy that. but i am probably gaining muscle as i just have gotten back to working out for the past two weeks and have been sore everyday. i am still scared. they said at the gym that in the fitness challenge at the gym i am in the least amount that has ever been lost is 8 pounds a i have 3 weeks to lose 8 pounds......aaahhhhhh. whatever. i need to put my scale away and chill the freak out!! will report later. have a great day everyone!

    Totally relate to the scale obsession. Even when working out or during that time of the month... I can't stop weighing myself! Because I have found that the curiousity haunts me if I don't weigh-in daily, I've come up with the solution of continuing to weigh myself, but only comparing numbers to the week and month before. Now I have a little chart that looks like this:

    _______+/- WEEK__________+/- MONTH________

    It helps to NEVER have to compare your natural fluctuation to the day before and leaves a little room for recovery from slip-ups.

    Take care. Thank you for your support on my recent blog, and look forward to checking in and seeing how you're doing in the future!

    Yeah to putting the scale away, for a while anyway. Sometimes best to focus on strength, endurance and other progress indicators. Keep up the good work.

    Yeah, get rid of the scale, once a month should do!! Measure your weight lost by measuring your body. Much more instant gratification and you see IMMEDIATE results!! Do once a week about the same time of day, morning is best!! Hope you have a great weekend and an AMAZING week!!
