#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.
