It's been a busy week. But I stayed consistent. I'm not even lying when I say that I danced a little jig this morning after I weighed myself. It was the kind of loss we all want to see EVERY week, except that it just isn't realistic.
But that didn't stop me from high-fiving my bad self.
It also made me think about the scale and the power I give it to influence my mood depending on its reading.
Here's the thing, the scale isn't my enemy, and the numbers don't lie. BUT numbers are just the data. Simple metrics--one of lots of ways I measure my progress. It's me who brings meaning (true or not) to the numbers on the scale.
My goal this week is to stay consistent, and when next week rolls around and it's time to weigh in, I'm going to celebrate no matter what the numbers are, because the truth is, I have that choice.

The last two weeks have definitely challenged my resolve. But I refused to allow my emotions and/or circumstances control my choices.
AND accountability has been key in helping me in that area. I know that for some of you tracking is a dirty word, but it's been my secret to success all along.
Since I started holding myself accountable again (ie. tracking) I've lost 5.8 lbs.
I make better choices when I'm accountable.
I'm more consistent when I'm accountable.
I'm more disciplined when I'm accountable.
I'm more mindful when I'm accountable.
I'm more focused when I'm accountable.
I'm more empowered when I'm accountable.
Accountability is POWER!
How do you hold yourself accountable?

It's fair to say that I spent a good part of 2022 in a funk that spiraled into a complete state of stuck-ness. I felt completely out of alignment.
Stuck-ness was my norm for roughly 30 years, so I know the state all too well--consistently allowing my life circumstances to control my emotions and daily choices tends to put me in a perpetual state of doubt, that leads to paralysis. It's a real growth stunter!!!!
In 2020 I made the decision not to live like that anymore, and I stand by it. I may have lost a little ground last year, but I'm done beating myself up and hiding.
My plan is simple. You might even call it basic...😆
I'm going back to the basics.
Because they work.
It's a new year, and yep, still the same me. But I'm showing up with a renewed commitment in all the areas I got stuck last year (which was kind of all of them) and this time I'm coming armed with enough love and grace to push me through to the finish line.
