Using An App To Help Me Stay On Path

Hello there you blank beautiful screen. It's been awhile. I took a little time last week to just step back, disconnect, and honestly breathe. I felt myself needing a breather and a moment to adjust to going back to work (part-time), Lil Man going to school full time, soccer and running for him, and just daily life. You know what I mean.

My typical morning is starting to consist of some type of early morning workout, rushing home to get lunches made, making sure I'm back in time so hubby can get to work, grabbing a quick shower, getting Lil Man to the bus stop, finally getting breakfast for me, packing my work bag, getting laundry started, cleaning up the kitchen, taking the dogs in and out and in and out...  and if possible I try to get caught up on email/social media before I head into work.

But I'm back and feeling a little more like I have things under control. I think I'm finding

#FitFridayConfessions - Breaking Up With The Scale

I When I was restricting calories, the scale became my unit of measure to determine 'progress'. And it became a thorn in my side. 


I would do everything 'right' when it came to working  out and eating my calorie allotment - to step on the scale and I would have gained a pound. After hard workouts or long runs the weight would always be up, and it could take a couple of days before I would see it drop. It was constant fluctuation. And that fluctuation made me obsessed with the number on the scale. 

It was time to break up. And that's exactly what I have done. 

Truthfully, each day is a challenge with becoming a healthier person. Some days I feel good about my progress; others I feel that I bombed. But the reality is that 'this' isn't a quick fix. I don't want the pills, potions or fads. I want to live a healthier life and it's one small step at a time.

  1. Good for you for kicking the scale to the curb. I experience the same fluctuations and they can be so frustrating sometimes. You're so right. One small lifestyle change at a time.

  2. The scale drives me crazy too! Although I am not ready for the break up yet...

  3. I have made my peace with the scale. I find it is very helpful for keeping me on track in the long run, but from day to day I've learned my own fluctuations and therefore am able to keep perspective.
