It's A New Day:

Thursday, January 17, 2013

Ok so I fell off the foodcwagon last night, but there is nothing I can do about it. The scale showed me this morning. It is so nice to have a scale that is precise and looks so professional :-)

Today is a new day. With a new day, comes a new challenge. Yesterday, I changed my sparkcoach program to Consistency and motivation. Each day it gives you a new challenge. Today's challenge is to move 3 times more than you usually would. So far, I have been downstairs 3 times. Many days I don't go downstairs until lunch time as my daughter usually makes breakfast and gets the dog out. Yes, I am spoiled, but I am going to start aiming to go up and down the stairs at least ten x per day :-)

I am learning about the scale. I am learning to use it as a tool. Do I think I really put on 1.5 lbs due in one day to dinner yesterday? No. I think there was probably a lot of salt in there and I am retaining water. This is all a learning process. I really like the Fitbit Aria scale. It is so nice! Wow, never thought I would say that about a scale lol

It's the small changes that make us healthier.

    I used to be really scared of the "scale". I didn't weight myself for years telling myself that as long as I fit in my clothes and feel 'ok'... then it's good enough.

    But it really isn't!! I'm weighting myself every week now so that I can keep track of my progress... no more lying and pretending!

    1.5 lbs is OK, just have to take the steps to lose it now! : )

    I like your blog. It is really hard for me to stay on track some day. I do much better during the week than on the weekends.
