I have no idea what I weigh...

Tuesday, January 24, 2012

I haven't stepped on a scale in months and frankly I have no intention of doing so any time soon. I think that I get derailed too easliy when the scale does not reflect my efforts or does reflect my lack of effort. Maybe in a few more months. Right now I just want to focus on creating healthy habits. This month the focus is working out. It's been awhile since I had a regular workout routine so I'm starting off slow by doing SparkPeople's Beginner Walking Workout. It starts you our doing a 5 min warm up, then a 5 min brisk walk, and finishes with a 5 min cool down three days a week. Over 12 weeks your work your way up to a 30 minute brisk walk with 5 mins each for warm up and cool down.

Usually I work on the food part of weight loss first, but I know from experience that when I work out regularly I start to naturally eat less and better so I'm switching it up this time.

In the end, the numbers don't really matter. All that matters is how I feel about my choices and my body, no matter the number.

    I think that's great. I would encourage you to permanently lose your scale.

    I never weigh myself - never weighed myself unless my trainer made me when I was bigger.

    These days, I never weigh myself unless I am at the doc's office and they make me do it.

    Fact is, your scale weight is not static. It changes all the time. And it doesn't define who you are. It tells you nothing but what the pull of gravity is on your body in that given moment. That's it. Pretty worthless, if you ask me.

    Rock on!
