    Checked your blog out after seeing your coment on Fit to the finish today…so glad I checked it out! Your post yesterday about the scales is so right on! I got on today for my weekly weigh-in. I have been exersicing great all week but this is the first week I haven’t written or planned my meals out in a journal (thought I was over that). I GAINED 3 POUNDS 😦 I’m so made at myself that I can’t even post about it today. Went for an extra mile this morning and it’s back to the journal for me!
    You have a great blog, I will be checking it out daily now 🙂

      I TOTALLY know what you mean. In fact that is exactly what happened to me this week. I had to remind myself that I don’t want to be a slave to a scale each week. I want the journey to be over time. I want to be balanced and not binging because I don’t have the scale to hold me accountable. I woke up this morning thinking..MIchelle where do you want to put your energy…that’s so much better than beating yourself up. Man, I’ve put a LOT of energy into beating myself up. Thanks for stoping by…glad we could connect.
