Move Over Fat Monday - Ignoring the Scale7:53 AM
I am a serial weigher. I weigh myself every single morning. I can't help it and am realizing that it is just an unhealthy practice. Before the middle of last week I had an idea that I was not going to see a loss on the scale this week and I tried to prepare myself for it. When I stepped on the scale yet again this morning and saw that I had actually gained almost a half of a pound, I was still upset. So, now begins my journey to try and ignore the scale.
I am not sure why I didn't have a loss this week. I did take two days without exercise this week, one being yesterday because I was too busy running errands to get ready for our trip that starts today. The other days I worked out an hour or more. I also followed the Shaklee 180 plan just like I am supposed to and stayed within my calories each day. The only thing I can think is that I built some muscle, because I did add strength and weight training back into my routine with BobHarper.com this week. I also was successful in losing more inches, so this leads me to believe that I did gain some muscle too. I will have to wait until next week to see what the scale says. For now, I am trying to ignore it.
So, I don't have a scale picture this morning because my camera is already packed away in the car. I am headed down to Orlando in a little bit for a Spring Break trip with the boys. I am taking my Shaklee 180 products, so I don't see a reason I won't be able to stay on track and will be exercising in our resort room. I gained .4 pounds this week on the scale, but there were inches lost.
