Scale Hiatus Update

So, a while back I said I was going to stop weighing myself until after the triathlon.

You should know that I am a total lying lie face.

I’ve been weighing myself, but, interestingly enough…I haven’t really been giving that much of a shit about it. This is a very, very good and big development for me.

The thing is, I’ve actually lost a weight since I started training for the tri…about 11 pounds in just under 2 months. It is isn’t surprizing, given that I went from basically sedentary to training 5 to 6 times per week. I haven’t been counting calories or really paying that much attention to what I eat (though I do tend to eat healthier when I am exercising more. My body seems to crave junk less).

I’m pleased about the weight loss, but not thrilled. I mostly feel glad that I now have 11 fewer pounds to drag up those hills. This feels quite mentally healthy to me…and Lord knows I need to find my moments of mental health when ever I can*

Always good for my mental health:

 

 

* Case in point: a co-worker has a very banal and not that well written blog and a Twitter account where she occasionally posts passive aggressive things about me and/or my sweet administrative assistant. How do I know this…because I keep checking it, even though it completely annoys me every single time. Why do I do this? Must stop!

    Don’t get too hung up on the scale, muscle weighs more than fat. So if you have been working out you might not lose that much in the beginning because your fat is being converted to muscle. What you need to look at is are you getting faster or stronger?
