Week 1 – Take A Bite And Be Happy

By HappySkinnyGirl

It’s the end of week one. I want to step on the scale so badly and I know that I shouldn’t need a validation from a scale to tell me how I should feel. You know the feeling when you think you got it, that this time you’re going to lose weight? I had it a few times but I think this time it’s for real. Last week I set up my goals at joesgoals.com

This were my goals:

  • Stop eating after 8pm
  • Walk 30 minutes/every day (=150min./week)
  • Walk in the woods once a week

I did pretty good at following my goals, or should I say it was an awesome start! During the midweek I got a headache and felt like I was coming down with a cold, but I managed to walk for a total of 160 minutes. On Saturday I finished baking a blueberries pound cake at 8pm, but I decided I would have a big piece of it. Fresh home-baked is heavenly delicious! 🙂 I was craving on something else too but reminded myself that I shouldn’t do what I always had done, that’s if I had ruined the day I might as well binged on more food. So I’m learning to take a bite and be happy. I didn’t go out for a walk in the woods but that’s ok.

It’s difficult to interpret how my body feels because I’ve never listen to it. I’m feeling good but a bit tired, maybe because of the walking or I need to eat more healthy food or am I getting fatter? I’ll find out at the end of the month. No matter what happens, I’ve established good habits for living a fit life. This week’s goal is the same as last week. I might add more when I feel the time is right, but for now I want to keep it as simple as possible.

    “validation from a scale” is a false validation anyway, right? The weight chart (healthy height/weight) has changed over the years as the medical community has realized that they were a bit foolish about it.

    For example, a guy who was 5’9″ and weighed 190lbs of solid muscle, would have to loose weight to be accepted to the military, strange. But times are changing and your body AND mind are the best guides.

    Way to go HSG!
