So many of our victories come not from the scale but in every day things that we do to be healthy; it's time to share those Non-Scale Victories!
I really feel like I have some good ones this week.

This next victory is huge for me workout-wise: Saturday, I went out to run and I ran FIVE miles...no stopping...no walking...just 5 glorious miles. I say, "glorious", because I felt amazing, no sore joints, my breathing was perfect, the weather was wonderful with the perfect temps, and it was great!! I have never done that before. It was almost like I needed to redeem myself from my "performance anxiety" at the 5K...and I guess I definitely redeemed myself! Still as slow as a turtle but I don't care!
Another thing I feel is a noteworthy victory is more of a great find...I finally tried powdered peanut butter. I couldn't get any PB2 around here, but Hubs found Betty Lou's Just Great Stuff Organic Powdered PB at Wegmans and I am SO pleasantly surprised at how good it is! Yay! It tastes really good, just like PB and with a hint of sweetness which I guess comes from the coconut sugar. "Coconut sugar is produced from the sap of the coconut palm flower and does not taste like coconut. This 100% organic, sustainably harvested natural sweetener has a lower glycemic index that cane sugar and contains essential vitamins and minerals." All I know is that I can now NOT feel guilty when I want to have 3T of PB (only 45 calories for 2T!!). I've heard PB2 is also really great so I'm here to tell you that they are worth trying if you're looking to cut some nut butter calories.

Also, side note on this same victory: I weigh less than my hubby now - yippppppeeeeeee! Technically, I could be like one of those commercials where the girl runs down the beach into her honey's arms as he swings her around in circles...okay, okaaaay...I don't weigh THAT much less...yet. But it's SOOO on.
Hope everyone had a great week, as well!
