No More Scales!

Monday, June 10, 2013

Attention! Please step off your scale. Do not define yourself by that number. Those digits do not tell the whole story. Many different things can be happening in your body, but you take one number and assign it one factor: fat. Your body is made up of bones, fluids, muscle, fat, and more. The number you see when you step on your scale is ALL of those things. Yet, when the number goes up, you assume you've gotten fat. When you start eating cleaner and more raw, your body gains bone mass, muscle mass, body fluids, and other things. That number going up when you're eating right is probably not fat, but our minds associate weight gain with failure. Stop! Just stop. Celebrate feeling healthier, eating cleaner, and being a better you. Get off the scale!

  • Smoothie (5 bananas, water, cinnamon, chia seeds, ice) = 500 calories
  • Orange/celery/cucumber juice (fresh) = 325 calories?

  • Small salad with red wine vinegar dressing = 20 calories, maybe?
  • Corn tortilla chips and homemade salsa = 300 calories
  • More chips and salsa = 300 calories
  • Chakra 4 pizza...again.
Calories: 2000+?

Went to dinner with a friend tonight. It was really great to see her. It had been a very long time! I ate the pizza again, and that might be the last time. My body is not pleased. And it shouldn't be! Gluten-free or not, that pizza is full of cheese and fat. I ate it and enjoyed it, but I could feel a difference this time around. And I feel it now, an hour and a half later. I won't go into detail, but I'll try to refrain from that type of food for a while. I know exactly what I want to try next time. :o)

After dinner, we went over to the really cool hippie store next door. Josh bought a shirt for himself and a cool new hat for me. Check it out!

Until tomorrow! For now, I better listen to my own advice..

Eat more fruits and veggies, kids.
