Non-Scale Victories #6


I'm going to resist the urge to list all the things I did this week that were definitely not victories and only focus on the good!

We went to a Chinese Buffet for Mother's Day. Oh no... Huh? I am proud to say that, although I ate all the things I love, I ate less because I made a trip to the salad bar first! This is unheard of for me - I love a good salad, but I usually never "waste" my time when there are so many other yummy things to chose from!

I did some major twisting of my ankle over the weekend and I could have stopping my C25K or backyard workout, but I didn't. I did the best I could on C25K and didn't lie to myself - I ended early and ended the workout. So, I'll have to do it again when I could have probably moved on to Week4.

I'm also pretty proud that I didn't succumb to snacking while the kids were gone yesterday and I made one yummy dinner!

What are your non-scale victories for the week?


  1. Making it to the salad bar FIRST is huge! I have gotten to the point that I don't go and tempt myself at the China Buffet anymore. I do well with out of sight, out of mind. I think you had a great week! Be sure to take care of your ankle. You must rest it or risk permanent damage.
    Way to go!!

    1. Thanks for the concern! I already have a bit of permanent damage from spraining it so often when I was younger, so it pops out of place quite easily because it is so stretched out and full of scar tissue. No worries! It feels fine now!

  2. Mmmm salad! I love hearing how eating the rainbow ( salad) helped you to eat less of the things you love. It also shows that you had a ton of self control and still got to eat the things you love!! That is awesome!

  3. Dinner looks good!!!

    Will you link up with us this Monday?

  4. Good for you for focusing on the positives!!!


I LOVE comments and, don't worry, there are no words to squint at and verify on this blog!! :) So, have at it!
