Sometimes you just have to close your eyes and trust yourself.
I’ve been slowly… too slowly, to tell you the truth… transitioning from 100% cardio workouts to incorporating a good bit of strength training into my exercise routine. But here’s the thing: throwing the weights around plays havoc with my numbers on the scale
Early in my journey, I turned my back on strength training for that very reason. It slowed my weight-loss progress to a crawl.
I know, I know: “Muscle weighs more than fat.” That’s small relief when you look to the scale for validation that you’re heading down the right path.
Anyway, I panicked and probably made a short-sighted decision. It’s a given that I lost plenty of muscle as I obliterated fat. In my lust for losses, I sacrificed some of the good to get rid of a lot of the bad. I threw the baby out with the bathwater.
I find myself unable to truly commit to the strength training because it causes a gain on the scale, which sends me rushing back to the security of my elliptical or bike.
So now… now, I’m gonna take a leap of faith.
I’m going to continue eating like I eat, sensibly and with an eye to good, healthy choices. However, I’m going to give the scale a much-needed vacation and throw myself into the “gettin’ fit” part of the program.
So sorry… the Scale Spectacle is temporarily shut down while we prepare for what’s coming next.
