Non Scale Victory Friday!

If you’ve never heard of a Non Scale Victory (or NSV for short), it’s basically exactly what it sounds like, healthy victories in your life that don’t have anything to do with the scale! As I was thinking about a way to track my progress on my blog this seemed like a no brainer. It’s the perfect way to keep track of all the positive outcomes that are a result of my lifestyle changes.

I’m going to devote Fridays to a reflection on the past week and to list out the various non-scale victories in my life. This isn’t just about me either, feel free to share your own NSVs in the comments below, I’d love to read about them! And so without further ado….

  1. I threw away my scale! I already wrote about this here, but it’s worth repeating. Doing this and starting this blog is my first step of many towards a life of positive and healthy changes in my life.
  2. When the thunder and lightning started up on Tuesday evening, ruining my running plans, I made the best of it and did a 40 minute Jillian Michaels workout video at home instead. My abs are still killing me!

  1. While going through my summer wardrobe I found I can now wear shorts that I haven’t been able to fit into for years! I’m excited to rock my bright pink shorts this summer!


And lastly…

  1. I’m running my second 10k tomorrow! I’ll be in Annapolis for the Zooma Annapolis Half Marathon and 10k. This is my first year running this race, and I’m very excited. You’ll be able to track my progress on twitter so make sure you’re following me @ScalesDown!

I’d say overall it was a pretty good week. Feel free to share your non-scale victories in the comments below!

  1. Good Luck on your 10k. I just go back from a 5k. NSV- Still went and completed the 5k even though all my friends bailed.


    1. That’s awesome Kara, way to stick with it! Sorry about your friends, but I hope it went well! Thanks for the luck I’m excited for tomorrow :)!


  2. I enjoyed reading your blog! You look great, I’m so happy for you and all your accomplishments! I do Jillian Michaels videos too when I can find enough time, her workouts KILL me, but I like them haha.


    1. Thanks Danielle, glad you enjoyed it! I know what you mean about her workouts! I always tell myself it won’t be that bad because I’ve done them before and know what to expect, but I always underestimate how bad they’ll be haha!
