that number.

I don’t keep a scale in my house because I don’t care to know how much I weigh. I know that I eat well and exercise regularly, so I’m probably at a healthy weight for me. If I had a scale in my house I would probably compulsively weight myself daily (sometimes multiple times a day) and I pretty positive that would really effect me negatively. So I live my life not knowing how much I weigh and just being happy with my body.

I was in a bathroom recently that had a scale in it. I hadn’t weighed myself in probably 2 or 3 years so I was curious. I stepped on the scale…

…and I was totally shocked.

While I feel like I’m in the best shape I’ve probably ever been in and eating healthy, that darn number on the scale was the highest I’ve ever seen it. I didn’t like that. Who would?

This made me think about what was going on in my life the last time I remembered being weighed and how I felt about that number. This was probably sometime back in college. I was running, stressing over classes, walking everywhere, and honestly I my diet was a mess. I did not eat well in college. College was definitely a low point in my nutrition because,well, I just didn’t really eat. When I did it was salad, toast, dry cereal or fruit. Not really ideal. But I felt happier with that number on the scale then.

But was I happier with life? no.

Am I happier with life now? definitely.

So what does that number really matter? I’m certainly not fat. And in fact I workout more now than I did in college, so it makes sense that I need to eat better and that number on the scale is higher because as we all know muscle weighs more than fat and happiness can sometimes be found in a sprinkle covered cupcake. 


Do you weigh yourself regularly? 

 

PRO tights & Pickle Vodka

I got these PRO Compression tights in the mail and I’m not ashamed to say that I’ve been a hippy and have lived in them since they arrive. They are SO COMFORTABLE, have cute fold up stripey cuffs and fold down stripey waist band, oh and they stay up. I like they they have real pant sizing and not S, M, L – which I’m pretty sure is the reason they fit so well. Do yourself a favor and go get a pair while they’re still super cheap (40% off the already sale price of $50 with promo code PINK)

I wore them to work (big surprise right? I always wear tights to work…) and then out to drinks & grub with Jonah afterwards. I’m so fancy, you already know…

I finally got that pizza I was craving all week….except for the fact I actually ordered a calzone. But what’s a calzone anyways? It’s basically a pizza taco – which happens to be two of my favorite foods combined.

Also, I was sitting next to this lovely thing all night. Two more of my favorite things combined…
