As I go forward with my new way of living, I make both big and small changes in my day to day. Here are a few from the past week:
- Before, if my husband was going away for the weekend, it was the perfect excuse not to exercise. "But I can't go to the gym, my husband's away". Jeff's in Syracuse this weekend so I got a SITTER for 2 hours Saturday morning so I could get to the gym.
- I didn't even go to a class at the gym, I made up my own workout and executed it perfectly. Before, if there were too many people in the free weight section of the gym (co-ed gym) then I wouldn't do weights, I'd just go on one of the cardio machines. Yesterday? It was full, but I just found my place right between two guys my age and went about my own business.
- I didn't use my workout to justify a lunch out (which used to happen quite regularly on weekends).
- I logged all my food (which included a cupcake (and a half!)) that I brought to a friend's house last night for dinner. I ate what they served: lasagna, caesar salad and 1/2 piece of garlic bread and DIDN'T FEEL GUILTY! Stayed within my calories, didn't stress about eating dinner at someone's house (where I am not in control of what they served).
Question: I weigh myself every Saturday morning. The last two weeks although I've felt great, my clothes feel better, I find I look like I am loosing (esp. in my stomach area - I look at myself in the full length mirror every time I go to get dressed...) yet the scale hasn't moved. I havent' let it discourage me YET but I'm worried if it doesn't move for much longer I may get weak and let it destroy my momentum. Do I give it up and weigh myself once a month? How often do you weigh yourself?
