Spring Break Experiment Pt. 2

Hey All,

So over spring break I chose to ditch the scale, track my eating, and exercise like normal. With spring break chaos its safe to say I cheated on my diet a lot..oops. But I also got to work out a lot. I also tried aerial yoga for the first time, which was a blast! I’m sore, but would totally suggest.

To my surprise my weight still dropped! On Sunday March 3rd I weight 236.6lbs and exactly 1 week later on Sunday March 10th I weighed 234.0lbs. That is a 2.6lb drop in one week! YAY! It was actually kind of nice not weight myself every day. That being said I recognize that I was able to go rouge on my diet because I was working out 2+ hours a day and was wayyyy more active than I normally am. I also found myself not being as concerned about my diet because I didn’t have that daily reminder of my weight loss goals. This was good and bad. I think I am going to go back to my daily weigh ins, simply because I could see myself losing control of my diet and not being able to counteract it with exercise. My normal non-spring break life does not allow for daily 2hours of exercise. lol. So for me and my goals, daily measurements help keep me on track.

If you personally find yourself obsessing about the scale, maybe its time to limit your weigh ins to weekly or monthly. I encourage you to focus on the non-scale victories. Just monitor your food and continue to exercise. Consistency will get you there. The weight will follow. Remember, its a lifestyle change and a journey. Wont happen overnight.

That is all for now,

-B
