I’ve got a serious case of Monday blues people. I woke up this morning not wanting to go workout – but as usual, there are no excuses so I got up and headed out.
I have a real serious mental case when it comes to the scale. In my entire adult life, I have never owned one nor had the desire to own one. I know I give a lot of power to those numbers so I prefer to live in the dark and go by how I actually feel and then add in how my clothes fit. I have a number that I want to be in my head and if I am not at the number, I seriously obsess. It’s not healthy — but as I have said before — you don’t change overnight. So Michael forces us to weigh in or he charges us $$. I personally would be happy not weighing in at all. I am trying to live by how I feel rather than a number on the scale. So today I was up 2lbs and I allowed it to throw off my entire workout. I kept obsessing about it, thinking about it, thinking about the slippery slope I am on.
A rational person would think – maybe it’s a normal fluctuation, maybe it’s all the salt you ate yesterday, maybe it’s that time of the month, or maybe it’s because you need to get back on the train and really watch what you eat. But as I said above, I am not rational when it comes to the scale and my weight. A thousand people can tell me – relax, it’s ok, its normal, it happens to me… but it doesn’t change what I am feeling about it today. I feel like I am failing, like I am letting myself down, that I am fat, that I am losing steam. I am in a funk this morning…as you can probably tell. You have peaks and valleys in any worthwhile journey – even the most committed ones do apparently.
