10-28-14 – Tuesday – Throw out the Scale

FatVsMuscle1
Interesting… I ate just 25 grams of carbs yesterday and still my blood sugar is high. But then again without working out my body has little ability to rapidly utilize the sugar that is in my blood stream. Tomorrow I will be back working out and I have to maintain this way of eating. Let’s see where my morning glucose tests go after the days I am working out. Hell, I don’t want to wait for tomorrow. I am going to knock out some situps this morning!

I still continue to weigh myself and although my body weight is down, it doesn’t mean anything. As I start working muscles again they will retain water and my weight will go up and as I build these muscles my weight will again increase. By burning fat my weight will go down. And that’s they way to get in shape and it doesn’t really matter what my total body weight is.

4:15 AM – Blood Sugar – 130, Weight – 171.0
Situps – 50, 50, 50, 50 = 200

    I just read this article this morning- http://www.mindbodygreen.com/0-15809/stop-treating-the-scale-like-your-worst-enemy.html and i feel it would make you laugh- especially the part of ‘Do not harass your scale’. Having a turbulent relationship with a scale is something most health nuts have today, but at the end of the day a scale just gives you a number, not your worth.
