I taught my favorite Monday night sculpt class at Anytime Fitness Hastings last night. As I walked through the front door, I saw something a little bit out of the ordinary. A baseball bat and a smashed scale.
I felt instant empowerment. I’ve talked body image and eating disorder a couple times on the blog and for me, the number on the scale is very triggering. This is why I don’t even bother weighing myself anymore because IT DOESN’T MATTER. It’s just a number.
Scales don’t tell you if you’re healthy, they don’t tell you if you’re skinny, or fit, or overweight. Things like body type, height bmi, body fat/muscle ratio, etc. all need to be considered. 125 pounds on one person can look very different on another.
Now for the Lorna Jane $50.00 giftcard winner: Congrats Anne M!
PS: My thoughts and prayers go out to everyone affected by the tornados in OK and the surrounding areas. Sending you positive energy today!
