Weigh-In … Non-Scale Victories

Today’s Weight: 177.5
Loss/Gain: + 0.5 lb
Considering being on a vacation of sorts while my friend was here and TOM arriving yesterday (meaning this was also PMS week) I am not surprised, and only glad it wasn’t more. 🙂
I had an awesome time with my friend, Sarah. One of the things we enjoyed the most was going to the gym on the week days she was here.
We had three good workouts together and enjoyed a few minutes in the sauna after each workout. What fun!
A few non-scale victories happened this week:
  • I didn’t gain lots of pounds while allowing myself to “vacation” in my eating while my friend was visiting.
  • I completed my regular workouts while my friend was visiting.
  • Today I ran 3 miles straight!!
I was so excited about finishing the 3 miles today that I was smiling all goofy at the gym. Had anyone asked why I was smiling I would’ve gladly told them it’s was because of running 3 miles straight through after only getting back to running a month ago.
Super exciting!
Oh, and not exactly this week, but recently a girl at church asked if I’ve lost weight. I told her only about 10 from when I moved there and she said, “Oh! Well, it must’ve been all in the right places!” or something like that… I grinned.
I’ve gotten nice compliments like that and I think it’s because I’m starting to fit in smaller sizes so it’s getting noticeable that something is changing.
Now to get the eating to be as successful as the running has been. In the meantime I hope you all have a good weekend. I’ll try and get around to reading blogs over the weekend. 🙂

    That is fantastic that you were able to workout with your friend. I've tried to move “lets go out for dinner” to “lets go for a walk and then grab a cup of coffee”. Have a blessed weekend Leah!


  2. Way to go on the three miles!! Way to go 🙂 Have a great weekend!


  3. Thank you for this post! I really needed to see this today to encourage me to get back to the gym and my C25K!!!!! 🙂 I felt so good when I was running on a regular basis and now I've been lazy! Back to the gym!
