Whether you workout before work or after work, chances are if you workout outside you'll be working out in the darkness or very dim light.

And one of my major pet peeves is to see runners or walkers or cyclists or really anyone out and about who doesn't make sure that they can be seen.

Because the majority of my workouts are before Hubby goes to work, and usually I'm solo, safety has always been a priority for me. And when I say that I won't run outside in the dark / low light/ fog without my Noxgear, I'm serious.

Why I'm Weighing In

When I started this journey with ditching the sugar (How I'm Going To Overcome Sugar Addiction), I decided to step on the scale. I didn't want to see how bad I'd let the weight gain get to, but I wanted to see a new starting point. 130.2 (at least 20lbs or so over my normal weight).

And during this time of focusing on removing the sugar, I haven't focused on weight. And I don't intend to allow myself to focus on weight at this point either. But, I don't want to replace sugar with another type of food.
I don't think that I am. I think I've been fairly good about replacing the habit of reaching for sugar by reaching for other non food substitutes like coloring, reading, listening to music or exercise. But with that in mind, I want to keep a handle on the weight. If I see the scale consistently going in the wrong direction, I need to step back and take a look at what I'm doing.

So far so good. I weighed in this week at 127.8  I'm not dieting. I've only cut out the sugary junk food. I'm eating carbs. I'm eating pasta. I'm eating tacos. I think you get the point.

But by ditching the sugar, I'm getting a better idea of when I'm truly hungry. And I'm not just mindless eating. That being said, I was happy to see the drop. Although, being so far away from where I started can be discouraging. But I'm reminding myself to take things one step at a time - one day at a time- and one small change at a time.

I am curious to see what happens when I get back on my strength training routine. I've been lifting weights sporadically over the last two weeks. This week it's back to lifting on a regular basis. If I could be 128lbs of muscle - that'd be awesome - but clearly I'm not :) And that's ok too.

Because you know what, in addition to ditching the sugar,  I'm also learning to love me - all of me - and that my friends makes me smile.
