1. I finally got rid of my scale. I would weigh myself every Wednesday morning before getting ready for work. The number on the scale would range from 158-167 every week. I know better than to listen to it. I’ve gained weight over the years (per my scale) but am down 2 sizes in pants. My legs are more muscular and I like it. 🙂
2. Tomorrow morning I have a doctor appointment for a physical exam, pap smear, etc, etc. I go every year and have been going there for almost 10 years. My doctor is cool and I like her. I feel very comfortable with her and have seen her when I had problems with my ears and my throat. Oh, and one year I had a mild case of bronchitis and she saw me right away and gave me antibiotics.
I also get a referral from her for a mammogram. It is weird how I can’t just go and get one, I have to get an “OK’ from her. Not cool. I am due for one soon and hopefully can go before school starts next month. When I went last year, she told me I had lost 11 lbs. from the year before. Let’s see what she tells me tomorrow (not that I really care, see #1). 🙂
3. Lately I’ve been running without any music. Sometimes I listen to it when I am on the treadmill but not outside. My friend, Paul, sometimes listens to audiobooks. I prefer the actual books but am intrigued by the other option so last night I downloaded a bunch of audiobooks. I am really excited about “The First Phone Call from Heaven” by Mitch Albom. I am a big fan and have read most of his books.
It’s frustrating that we have to get referrals for everything. I hope your appt goes well!
Thanks Kim. I hope so too. 😄
I am starting to hate the scale. I’ve gotten to the point where I am gaining I think because of muscle gain. I am going to try an app (happy scale) that does a moving average to figure out my true weight. I hope that helps me not care too much about the number on the scale at a given moment.
I’ve never heard of Happy Scale. I am just going to go by how my clothes fit. That seems to work for me but I was just so stubborn that I STILL needed to see a number.
I have a weight scale at home but I don’t really use it. I only bought it because it looked really cool (it’s glass)….haha but also, there are times when I just wanna check my weight to see what’s up. Ya know? I don’t have a problem with weight gain but the scale is there just to be there I guess.
ALSO, I like to listen to music when I run sometimes but recently, I decided that I want to be aware of my surroundings and listen to ‘nature’ instead. However, the audio book idea sounds fun especially for longer runs. I may try that.
Yes, the glass scales are cool. They look so pretty.
I don’t have a scale (well, my husband does, but I never use it), and I also prefer it that way. I actually didn’t weigh myself before I got pregnant, and I certainly didn’t want to during pregnancy. I weighed myself for the first time in February, and at least I have a number to work with, but I am with you – I am all about whether or not clothes fit, and I love feeling muscular as well:)
That’s the way to go! 🙂
