Wednesday Weigh-In – Don’t Juice Mustard Greens

I’ve decided that Wednesdays will be weigh-in days. Weighing myself daily for this blog will make it a habit, and it’s one I’ve already worked to break. I stress in real-life conversations that we shouldn’t worry about weight. It’s only part of the picture. As we all know, muscle weighs more than fat does, so if you’re fit, chances are you’ll weigh more. So get off the scale, folks. It only serves to make us more paranoid about our body images, and we all know we don’t need any more issues.

Not a bad day! Yesterday was one of those days I wished I’d stayed in bed, but today was better. A friend at work told me about something that happened to her, and it’s similar to what I’ve been experiencing as far as others’ opinions on my recent weight loss. She looks incredible and feels healthy, and that’s what is important. Let’s all remember that. Let’s also remember to never juice mustard greens, as they are spicy and make your stomach hurt a little. Oh, the burn. So take a lesson from me, kids! Don’t be doin’ that. So I ate an apple for dinner. I should have eaten more, but it got late after yoga. Live and learn, guys. 
Anything you want to know in particular about my journey? Let me know in the comments or on Facebook or Twitter

. A ripe banana. Eat them THIS way.
Eat your fruits and veggies, kids.

  1. I am enjoying this blog! And congrats on your journey, your discipline, and your good health! You are an inspiration. 😉

    I know what you mean about "others' opinions on recent weight loss". The healthiest I've ever been was when I got the most crap from people about my body. But funny how when I gain weight or am eating unhealthy, no one says anything.

  2. Thank you, girl!! <3 It's been fun. I'm happy to share!

    That is EXACTLY my point! I posted something similar to that on Facebook the other day. No one bothered to speak out when I was eating crap, getting heavy, and being lazy. But now, healthier than ever, and I'm getting opinions everywhere without asking for them. It's sad, but I'm happy doing what I'm doing, so let's rock on, girl! <3
