Saturday weigh in

Just a quick post- life is insanely busy

Weigh in - up 1.4. Considering the two fast days not surprising. Yet , how absolutely realistic is it to live a life where one never celebrates with any ethnic foods or sweets ? I believe to do so is to deny a very important part of being human , and what good would that do in the long run ? To live a life of nothing but "perfect" food choices, hours every day devoted to acting like a gerbil in a habitrail and consequentially taking your time , attention and presence from several equally importaint situations because you need to spend an hour exercising ? ( No , I am sorry , but i can't make the parent teacher confrence. i have to be in the gym. No Billy, I can't go to your soccer game because that will mean I can't spend my hour in the gym. And Grandma, I am sorry but you will have to get other people to come visit you in your home bound state. I have to be at the gym so i can lose weight !)

Life is so much more than a simple number on the scale.

Darn those zeppoli!!!

Really, you are right, we have to live and sometimes zeppoli is a part of life ;) The scale with cooperate some time or another, but as long as we are making healthy choices the majority of the time to keep our bodies healthy, that's all that matters. Quite frankly, I'm getting a little tired of living by the scale myself. After this challenge, I may give it a rest for a while:)

It is true!
And I agree.
That is where I find the hard time with balance. Could I get to the gym more? Sure, but at whose cost?
You are a wise, wise woman!
