Non-Scale Victories, June 6, 2013

Hello!!  It's time for my favorite post of the week - Non-Scale Victories!  Time to celebrate all of the little things we do that are NOT scale related but are still just as important to our health.
I missed last week's linkup because things are just crazy around here, and you'd think that would mean that I have two weeks worth of NSVs to brag about...you'd THINK that but you would be wrong, ha!
It's not that I've not done anything to be victorious about, it's just that I feel like I'm gonna say the same things.  Oh, well, I'm going to list them anyway:
  • I just completed 397 days straight of logging food into My Fitness Pal (hit me up:  jennlefebvre08)
  • I completed my first 5K
  • Even though I was sore from running said 5K (hazy, hot, miserable and downright blech!!), I have continued to workout and I was able to run yesterday for a mile and felt really great!
  • This one is interesting to me:  I've made a conscious effort to eat less carbs this week and last night when I checked MFP for my week, I've been able to stay at about 35% carbs...my normal weeks are about 45%...so I've dropped about 10% in carbs this week
  • Which made me wonder about this so I had to check:  I have only had ONE bagel in the past 13 days - hawhaaaaa???  That's crazy!!  Man, I love me a freaking bagel - Icouldeatoneeverysingleday.
  • I'm continuing to try new workouts and tonight I'm going to check out Fitness Blender - anyone else using this?  A fun workout I did last night with some friends was kicking trees...don't worry, no trees were harmed in our quest for fitness.  I'll be posting about it next week on Workout Wednesday with Skinny Meg.  Basically, what I'm getting at is that I'm really digging finding new ways to workout in addition to my traditional cardio routines.  I LOVE mixing it up!
  • I'm also continuing to add more and more weights to my workouts - I want to be strong!
  • This coming Monday, the Hubs and I will celebrate 18 years of marital bliss and it's been 18 years since I was this size.  I gained 10lbs on my honeymoon and never looked back for 16 years!  You can bet your sweet buns I'll be trying on my wedding dress this weekend.

So there you have it - what were YOUR NSV's this week?


  1. Holy moley, you have so many NSV's I don't even know where to begin! I think I am the most excited about you trying on your wedding dress!! Please take pictures!! I have never heard of that workout app but will definitely be looking it up! I got your friend request on MFP and we are now friends!! Keep up all of your good work lady, you are doing so good and are such an inspiration!!!

  2. That's a pretty amazing list of NSVs! I can't believe you logged so many days on MFP - I've only got about two straight days under my belt. I'm going to add you, but if you get there first - 2Momma2. I love new ways of working out too - I've been getting some backyard workouts in with friends - so much fun!

    Congrats on your anniversary!


  3. 397 days is impressive! I struggle to log an entire week! Good for you!

  4. I can't get over that MFP tracking for that many straight days!! I'm struggling to complete one entry A WEEK!!! Teach me your ways.

    And, congratulations on your anniversary! Hope y'all have fun!

  5. I am so proud of you, friend! Keep rockin it!

  6. I think I gained 10 on my honeymoon, too! Happy Anniversary! I don't think your NSVs were repetitive at ALL. You rock and you've inspired me to get more weights incorporated, too. Have a great weekend!

  7. I'm sorry for being such a bad blogger friend! I'm so behind on reading about your awesome progress! Your NSVs are awesome as always! I am in awe that you've tracked so many days. You are motivating me to get my tracking done!

  8. Great NSV. I was spending the whole week at my parent's last week. Everytime I come visit, i will gain weight. I feel bad but complaining would not change anything. Congrats on completed your first 5K. BTW, I've nominated you for Liebster Award. I'd like to hear what you think. Have a great week.


  9. I found you through NSV!!! Happy to be your newest follower!!
