Taking Stock

I am someone who really likes to quantify certain things – Number of steps in a day, number of days doing X, number of days not doing X, etc. And I truly believe that it has helped me a lot in the past!

But recently, I have started to wonder if some of it is getting in my way, like when I had to stop quantifying my health with the numbers on the scale or the tape measure, or the number of calories consumed in a day.

I’m always working on balance, and I know that I am also working on not being so “all or nothing” about my habits. If I have a little extra sugar today, I’m not ruining my life. If I over indulge a bit and feel full and sleepy, I’m not a monster. If I choose to imbibe even when I say I don’t want to, I can get right back into my goals.

There is so much more to the short time we get than quantifying our health, and while I know that some of these habits have really positively served me, I’m working on figuring out which ones are no longer fueling me in the positive way they once did.

A constant assessment of self. That’s me.
