Something circulated yesterday on tumblr that resonated with me: No Weigh May. So I'm going to. [I'm also doing this and this]
To quote myself:
GirlGrowingSmall has set up goals for herself for the No Weigh month, and I liked that and thought I should too.
think the only times in the last couple of years that I stopped
weighing myself was when I had stopped exercising, which won’t be the
case here, so I’m scared of the outcome of this month. I’m really scared
it will be like then, and I will gain big numbers. But I also need to
get away from the scale and learn not to depend on it. So here goes.
Goal for the end of May: lose at least 7lbs, putting me nicely under 200lbs
NWM Reward: Something from Disneyland that I’ve been wanting for a while. - or- New and cute workout outfit
Consequence for gaining, or losing 3 lbs or less: No spending money on
myself for a month. This will be hard for me because when there is a
good sale on fitness stuff or dvds, I like to buy. I rock sales.
It will also make it harder for me to buy a set of 12 lb dumbbells that I've been thinking of getting for Phase 3.
realize my goals are similar to hers, but it seems we are in the same
weight range right now so her numbers really reflect what I want.
Reward: For making it a month not getting on the scale, I will get
myself 1 movie that I want. Not getting on the scale will be a
I also have a caveat to my not losing more than 3 lbs, I will also be measuring again at the end of the month, and if I've made inches progress instead of lbs progress, I will not consider it part of the fail and consequences.
This means a more concentrated effort on being active during the week, with the exception of probably Tuesdays. Everyone needs a rest day.
And holy cow, am I loving phase 2. Although, I haven't done the cardio yet today. Gulp. I know this phase's is longer than 25 minutes. I hope it doesn't have moves that make my HR spike like phase 1. I can't remember. That was over a week ago and I had a busy 4 days at work.
