What do the Scales say Today?

Friday, May 6, 2011

I can't seem to get through the day without my morning weigh-in. I weigh-in as soon as I get out of bed, then I go to the bathroom and weigh-in again. This is my morning routine as far as weigh-ins go. I just can't help myself I have to do it. I have tried to stop weighing myself daily, but I just need to know what those numbers are going to say each morning. However, I have stopped weighing in more than once a day.

I used to jump on the scales every time I walked passed them, before my shower, after my shower, before bed. It seems to be a little more under control now, which is good for me cause I seem to be less stressed about the whole weigh-in thing. The only reason I can think of that this is happening is that since giving Weight Watchers a break I haven't been so focused on the scales.

My focus now is my MDC Fun Run on Sunday so my focus has changed for what I think, is the better. I am concentrating on practicing my running - I don't like to use the word training because I feel as though that term is reserved for athletes and I am clearly not an athlete. One day I will refer to my practice as training, but not just yet.
Anyway, I am turning my weight loss attention towards my running. I am try to eat as healthily as I can so I can nourish my body and give it the energy it needs for running (shuffling). I always feel really good after I have had a run whether it's a small 2 kms or a bigger 4 kms and I think I am actually eating better because of that. Because I am feeling so good after a run I don't want to fill my body with rubbish that makes me feel slugish and bloated. My running has added another level to my weight loss, which in turn, is allowing me to spread my focus away from JUST the scales.

I try and workout everyday, even when I don't really want to, like this morning. My husband actually forced me out of bed to go and use the treadmill, I wasn't really happy with him at the time, but he was only doing what I asked him to do. I am also very thankful that he is being supportive.

There are only 2 days left till my Fun Run and I am very nervous.
