I’ve always been concerned about gaining weight. It was always a bad thing to see the numbers go up on the scale.
Then I started CrossFit, and the only weight I am concerned about gaining is in my lifts.
It is not that I never step on the scale. I do. But I’ve learned that the scale is pretty dumb. It just does not appreciate me and the work I am willing to put in. I eat well, I am at Crossfit 5 days a week, and I sleep 8 hours a night.
I am more focused on putting in the work so I can lift more weight. That makes me happy.
This week, I set six new PR’s on my lifts, some of which were on the lifts that I find really challenging. One of the lifts I improved by 40 lbs, and another one by 30 lbs. I’ve been working so hard in training to challenge myself to lift more, so I am thrilled with the improvement and want to keep going.
I can really say I love gaining weight this way.
It makes me happy.
The scale…not so much….
