I always read in fascination my fellow HYC challengers who decide to stay off the scale for weeks at a time. I am a hop on the scale every morning kind of girl. It works for me because it helps me see how my weight fluctuates. Also, I think if I didn’t weigh every day and I got on the scale this morning to see that higher number, I would feel even more frustrated. But, I think I’m freaking myself out about my 70 pound goal., and I think I’m putting too much pressure on myself to get there, and since last week's weigh in, the scale hasn't moved, so I start to put more pressure on myself. Bleh. So I think that I’m going to stay off of the scale for a while. I really don’t know if I can trust myself to not get on it, but for my own sanity, I think I will. I need to focus on other things, like exercise and journaling. So let’s focus on the positive, shall we?
- Journaled - not every day, but some
- Went to all of my scheduled work outs, and walked the dog!
- Pilates class is getting less sweaty, but still challenging
- The highlight of my week – I can almost do a full-on “boy” pushup!!! Currently I can only bend my elbows about 20-30 degrees, but I can push myself back up, and I can do 3 in a row. Pathetic? Not if you’re me. This is a milestone.
Not a terrible week. I must remember that the scale isn't my only measuring stick.
