They say that "A man with 2 watches never knows what time it is." Well, the same can be said for a man with two scales. I have three.
But, being the optimist that I am, I always choose the scale that gives me the best news. I've been weighing myself consistently at the gym and today it said 214!!! I'm very excited, but as I've mentioned before, nothing it "real' until is lasts 3 days or one weekend, which ever comes last, really.
I went for a great run this morning. No watch, no timer, no heart rate monitor, nothing to measure, judge, or rank me, just a run in the perfect weather and sunshine of a famously California day. It was one of those runs were it feels good even when you are tired, i did say, and don't mean "fast" it just felt good. Decent pace, a couple of long red lights for a water break, a cute mom out for a walk with her dog, and good music on my iTunes.
When I returned I ran into a friend, chatted for a bit, and then hit the locker room and stripped down.
When I got on the scale I smiled just a bit too much when it read, 214!!!
That gives me some motivation to be good as I leave for vacation for a long weekend. I've got my running shoes, gym clothes, and golf shoes packed. I'm ready to go. My goal is to be under 215 on Monday morning.
I think I can do it.
