Lately I’ve been seeing some other health/fitness bloggers post their non-scale victories. I, for one, LOVE this idea. Just because the numbers on the scale aren’t budging doesn’t mean that change isn’t happening, and we should celebrate even the smallest of things that help us along our path to success.
This morning I had my real first non-scale victory.
On my way to work, I drive by a 7-11. Ok. I don’t HAVE to drive by the 7-11, but sometimes I do. And when I do, I usually have to stop in and get a 711 Chiller or coke and some pop tarts. Although it’s not an expensive breakfast ($3.12 to be exact) – it adds up…not only on my waistline but also in our bank account. I can remember one week a few weeks ago where I stopped at 7-11 every morning. That comes out to about $15/week in cash…and God knows how many calories.
Well. Today I HAD to stop at 7-11 to get gas on my way into work. And wouldn’t you know? I DID NOT go inside to get a coffee or treat! I’m so proud of my self. I sure as heck wanted to waltz in there and grab myself a big ole coffee and some S’mores Pop tarts. But I didn’t. It was hard to resist, but I did it. And I feel better for not indulging.
While this is a small step for me – it is something. That’s what counts right?
What is your non-scale victory this week?
