NOTE: The following is a dangerous activity – do so at your own risk!
Items needed: hammer, big rock, bat, axe, sledge hammer, or shovel; safety glasses, leather gloves and protective clothing; your body weight scale; and a park or backyard.
Directions: gather all items necessary to complete the assignment and take them to the park or your backyard. Place the scale on the ground and say “It’s not about my weight!” before pulverizing the scale Office Space style (YouTube “office space printer scene” for clarification if needed). Use the smashing tool of your choice.
Whether you complete this assignment or not, remember that the scale is an instrument, but it is not instrumental in your success. YOU are instrumental in your success; it’s not about what the scale tells you, but what you tell yourself that matters most. It’s not about the weight or ages or numbers… it’s about you – your daily attitude, the thoughts you have, and the actions you make about physical activity.
