Okay, so it's not as hard as I thought today. I am at the beach so maybe being out of my "normal" environment makes it easier. I did not step on the scale this morning. I'm going to try and go 40 days without weighing. One down. Today is not over yet!
I know it sounds like an easy thing to do, but for me, it's not. I have a "love/hate" relationship with the scale. I love it when it tells me good news. If I don't like the number, it can ruin my day.
I need to look at other indicators of good health. My weight is within the healthy range for my height. My clothes fit nicely. I am fit.
I watch what I eat. Of course, I have the occasional treat, but for the most part, I'm a model for heatlhy eating. I eat fruits, veggies, drink tons of water, very little red meat, etc.
I need to break the scale addiction. Here's hoping that I can. If I don't weigh for 40 days, that should do it. I think I read somewhere that it takes 30 days to make or break a habit. We shall see.
Today, I feel a little stressed. It is absolutely pouring out and I don't have access to a treadmill so there will be no run for me today (at least it doesn't look like it). I don't have a good way to get any meaningful exercise so I need to adjust my eating. I need to realize that just because I skip one day of planned exercise, it doesn't undo all of the good work that I have done for weeks. I need to be reasonable with myself and tell myself what I would tell someone else. Why is that so hard?
I think I am going to learn a lot during this 40 day exercise.
Until then, I'll watch some college basketball.
