2/25: anxiety

Tuesday, February 25, 2014

Today I am feeling really bloated and heavy, probably because I am stressed and tired. I'm also a bit anxious because my new scale is arriving today, and I'm wondering if I am going to be surprised by my weight on it because I don't know how long my old scale has been inaccurate. I am going to wait to weigh in tomorrow morning so it is consistent with my normal weigh-in time, but waiting is going to be hard! I know I shouldn't tie my self-esteem to whatever the number on the scale is, but I have to admit that I'll be disappointed if it is higher than I've been thinking.

Calories: 1075 so far out of 1850-ish for the day (depending on how long I work out at the gym)
Workout: 10 minutes HIIT completed, 30-45 minutes of cardio at the gym scheduled for this evening
24 hour challenge: another crazy day at work, and my anxiety
24 hour success: getting in extra activity yesterday which helped me burn a few more calories than normal for the day
Today's body gratitude: being able to keep moving even when I'm tired and I haven't done the body self-care that I should

    Thanks guys! I forgot to mention that it's still TOM right now too - great for inspiring a skewed perception of self! I'm working on changing my mindset around today.
