You may have noticed that nowhere in my goals for next year do you see any mention of weight loss. Sure, I do want to be a healthy weight (who doesn’t?) but I have found that I’m much more successful at losing weight when I don’t focus on it. Instead I set training, fitness and healthy eating goals that aren’t centered around the number on the scale.
Honestly, I have no idea what I weigh right now. I haven’t been on a scale in a month and that was only because I was at the doctor. See, I used to be a compulsive weigh-er. I would weigh myself daily and fret and worry about any fluctuation that happened to be in the upwards direction. It just go to be too much! I threw away my home scale and vowed to stop weighing at the gym. I now focus that energy on achieving other fitness related goals and Viola! I seem to be losing weight after all. Or at least I’m feeling better in my own skin.
You also will not find a complete lack of butter, sugar, flour and chocolate. I am very soundly in the middle of camp All Things in Moderation and a baker at heart. The occaisional full-fat treat keeps the junk food binges away for me. And sometimes those treats will be too good not to share. I swear to post mostly healthy treats but I’m warning you now that a little butter is bound to sneak in every now and then.
I promise to get around to posting some of those healthy recipes soon! Next weeks meal plan is finalized and grocery shopping has already been done.
