Somedays The Scale Rocks....

I weigh every morning. There! I said typed it for all of you to see.
I like to see my weight fluctuate. When I weigh 2 pounds heavier on a Monday, I don't sweat it. My eating is so screwed up on the weekends. As far as food choices go, weekends are troublesome all the time sometimes. The part that really gets me is the schedule. I eat every morning at 8:00 or 8:30 during the week. On the weekends, I am still sleeping at that time. When I do roll out of bed, I don't eat right away. I workout first and eat closer to lunch time. It continues like that all weekend.

I never freak out when I see the number go up overnight. For instance, Monday the scale said "129.2" and today it says "126.2". Do I think I lost 3 pounds in 4 days? No. It could be anything that caused the gain. High Sodium. Eating/Snacking too late. Water retention. No Bowel Movement(*ew* Gross, I know).

I don't beat myself up when that number is higher. In fact, the days I weigh higher get me really motivated though. I feel like it makes me work just a little bit harder. I remind myself why I am doing this and what I want to get out of it. Hello! I wanna be a fit marathoner!

Goal of the Day: Going out to dinner for a friends birthday tonight and I would like to be conscientious of what I eat and how much of it!

Weekend Goal: (1)Try to maintain an eating schedule as close to the weekdays as possible. (2) Walk/Run a half marathon distance on Saturday.

Feel Good Thought of the Day: The scale does not define you!

Happy Friday everyone! What are your plans for the weekend?


  1. I weigh myself every day too. I like to know sooner than later if I need to make better choices!
    I'm doing the Warrior Dash this weekend. I can't wait! I wanna do a long run this weekend too.

  2. I just did a scale post today!! Glad it doesn't drive you crazy and you can keep it all in perspective.

    When you do a half marathon walk/run, on average, how much do you walk versus run?

  3. I still weigh myself too. I don't beat myself up either way...but curiosity. :)

    I'm running and relaxing this weekend!

    Have a great weekend!

  4. You have such a healthy relationship with the scale! That's what I try to tell myself, but I still get upset if I see a gain. I just go by the zipper test myself.
