Stepping OFF the scale
It is time to step OFF the scale. I am challenging myself (and you!) to stay off the scale for the month of April.
In preparing for my upcoming 5K race on April 19th, I am choosing to train without the scale. My last race (on Thanksgiving Day) I trained for months because I was also working towards my goal weight (140) and I have now surpassed that goal (currently at 133).
All school year I have been talking to my students about improving their own personal fitness. That it doesn't matter what the person next to you can do, but what you can do. I need to start practicing what I preach and enjoy my active lifestyle.
I have spent so much time focusing on whether I weigh 133 or 134 or 132 instead of focusing on the fact that I now fit into size 6 pants!
We need to focus on the good and leave behind the negative. Please join me in the effort to put a positive foot forward.
Say goodbye to your scales for one month and make an effort to be active at least three times a week.
