Phyllisgreen's Journal, 10 October 2013

I worked till 8:30am (over an hour late). Interviews held me up. Seems like we give the most at our weakest. Once again, I tried to think up a million reasons why I could not ride my bike home~this work schedule of mine is interfering with my life. Once again, the cool fall Florida morning gave me memories of home and I was home before I knew it. I think I will just skip over the "I'm tired and don't want to ride" part in the morning and jump right on and head home. Obviously, the ride does me a world of good in more ways then one.

I will admit it, I'm addicted to the scale. I want to STOP weighing every darn day. I really think it gives you a poor mindset to watch the scale fluctuate like that. I wonder why, as humans, we continue to do what we know is not good for us. A part of me wants to hand it over to my DH and have him hide it, bringing it out only on weigh day. But then I think, I don't want to make headlines across the USA; "Women runs husband over with her bike when he refuses to give her scale back." It puts him in a "no win" situation. Surrendering my addiction for food and trading it for a scale addiction. No brainier that if I have to be addicted to something I made the choice that it is the scale.

This is my last night to work and then I will be off for three. (doing the happy dance)! Tomorrow is my first training session at the gym with the personal trainer. I'm sure he is going to attempt to kill me, slowly, but my job is to fight back.

Hope everything is going well for everyone. Can't wait to hear what everyone has planned for the weekend. I wish I had more time to respond to each and everyone's journal entries, but it is in possible task when I work 3 12 hour night shifts in a row. I'm praying for each of you, your families, your strengths, your determination and your success. The group of friends I have made here on FS has been a lifeline to my success. God bless each of you~

We are in the same boat! I too weigh in every day knowing full well it's only going to mess with me. I wake up and it's the first thought that enters my sleepy brain "hmm, what do I weigh today". I used to hide the scale from my husband because he would do that, now I need to hide it from myself. Tomorrow is my official weigh in day, maybe afterwards I will put it up and not look again until next Friday. I just feel like the suspense would kill me. lol Anyway, so glad to hear you are feeling well. I understand not wanting to ride your bike home after a long night, but you're right it is definitely doing you good, mentally and physically. I often feel the same way after I get in my gym routine, despite desperately not wanting to. I hope you have a great night at work!! God Bless!

I try to just weigh myself once a week, Monday morning (although some weekends I'm like a kid on Christmas morning and have to take an early peek). I don't envy your hours, I know it's tough being on your feet and it can be difficult to eat (and eat well) working such long hours. Hope you get some rest tonight!
