I need to just say that I am stressed. I don't really want to get into why, but sometimes it's just hard to get through stuff. Life and all that comes with it sometimes seems overwhelming, you know? I hate to wish time away, but when they say "this too shall pass", I really hope they mean quickly!
So I have been fairly successful in avoiding the scale like I planned. In the past couple weeks I have only been on the scale for my scheduled Tuesday weigh-ins. I thought I was becoming obsessed with the scale. I decided to take a break so I wouldn't focus as much on the daily numbers which were always going up and down, sometimes 2-3 pounds. But I am now realizing that the obsession with the numbers was actually not an unhealthy obsession. It helped me stay focused on my weight, but kind of in a good way. Like if it I was up in the morning, I might have felt a little upset about it, but it was also a reminder of what I needed to do. If I was down, then I started the day off with a great feeling of accomplishment which helped me stay motivated. I've really missed that daily check-in, and I can't wait to "check in" tomorrow morning. I'm glad I experimented this way because now I know it's not an unhealthy obsession, or even an obsession, it's just something I do, weigh everyday.
Today was a strange day. Lots of stress and changes in my normal schedule and when all was said and done, I didn't fit in my daily run. Now I am preparing to both run and Shred tomorrow morning. That means I need to get to bed, it's 9:24!
I do want to share one piece of a good news and that is I finally got a new computer!! I bought it with money I don't have at a completely wrong time for our budget, but I need it. I am trying not to feel too guilty about it and just enjoy it. And it really is great! I cannot wait to get all my data transferred over to this machine. Once that is done I plan to celebrate by taking my computer to Starbucks and spending time surfing and blogging and doing whatever else I haven't been able to do with that other POS! Yay, for a computer that works!
