Fitness stuff

Despite my general disapproval of relying on the scale... I've been getting on the scale. Sigh. My weight seems to be holding precisely steady.

Now, on week days I eat like a monk (almost literally, since I've developed an interest in cookbooks by head chefs at Buddhist monasteries lately). Weekends, however, are a lot harder. I've had a couple pasta-oriented indiscretions in the last 6 weeks, but I'd hate to think that they were enough to bring my weight loss to a total halt.

I'm comforting myself with the fact that I have always put on muscle mass freakishly quickly. My arms already feel a bit harder, and my jeans are fitting better. So maybe muscle weight accounts for the number on the scale.

Whatever. I'm striving to eat well, and keep moving. What else can one do? In the final analysis, that's all there is.

Three things, hon.

[1] Do not get fixated on "numbers" (ie: inches, pounds). That will stress you out. Which leads to #2.
[2] Stress and worries screw up even the most rigid eating styles (don't want to say diet). It shuts down your body.
[3] Acknowledge and laud what you do that is healthy and right even if the numbers hate you. Are you eating better? Do you feel any better? Don't lose sight of other victories.

Remember, any "Backsliding" is not a failure. It's just an interruption to your getting back on the horse.
