NSV's are awesome!

I am happy to report quite a few non-scale victories this week

  • I ventured out of my comfort zone for yet another "new to me" class - Tabata ... and I LOVED IT! I am so freaking sore still but I look forward to doing it again this Friday!
  • Going wheat free has had its challenges but I have been 100% committed. Not a single bite! I turned down SOOOO many baked goods this week. Today I turned down the most awesome looking homemade blueberry bread. And hubby ordered pizza tonight. I didnt have a single bite. By telling myself NO WHEAT... it stopped the "well I will only have a small piece" or "no one will see this so it doesnt count". No wheat meant exactly that - no wheat. Yaaa me! 
  • After not being able to run this morning because Bre woke up too early - I worked 10 hours then came home and ventured outside for 2 miles. I was aiming for 5 but seeing that its hotter than hell and soooo muggy - 2 is ok with me :)
  • Yesterday I wanted a candy bar when I was at work. I got money and headed towards the elevator to go to the vending machine. I got to the elevator and said "no I dont need this" and turned around. Went back to the unit and made my protein shake instead! 
  • I have carried my water everywhere. 
  • Yesterday I was starving after work... knowing I didnt have anything at home, I stopped on my way home and picked up a rotisserie chicken and then roasted some quick veggies instead of grabbing fast food or giving in to something in the wheat family!
  • This week my sodium intake has been drastically lower - by going wheat free you cut out almost all processed food!
I am very proud of myself off the scale this week! And while I was hoping for something "biggest loser" worthy on the scale this week but I am still very happy with the results. Down 2.5 lbs ... weight 167!

We are going into the 6th week of the summer sizzle slim down challange... I cant believe how fast this summer is going!  Next weeks challange is to go vegitarian for the week. Unfortinately - I will NOT be participating. I have no desire to go meat free. None. I eat almost no red meat as it is but chicken is one of my staples. Having newly gone wheat free - dropping meat too, I think would be to limiting for me and would end up with me failing at both. I will do a day :)


  1. Nice loss this week! I am sure going wheat free isn't easy! Keep going! There will be plenty more NSV's this week, I'm sure!

  2. Thos NSV's are awesome. Good job. I agree with you not taking on more then you already are. Wheat free would be very hard I think. Keep up the great work and have a blessed week!

  3. Great job! No wheat huh. Not a bad commitment to make. I have a tendency to binge on high carb foods. Something to contemplate.

  4. You had an awesome week of NSV!

    I follow (or try) a primal lifestyle. I fell off the wagon for a bit, but I've been back on it for over a month. I feel so much better without grains in my menu.

  5. I love NSV's too - they were what kept me going when I was losing all my weight. I still love realizing that I can do things other people take for granted like fit in chairs, fasten seatbelts, and swim!

  6. Great week you had! You deserve to be proud of yourself.
    Good luck with this new week!

  7. That sounds like a fabulous week! Good for you for tackling so many things! I've done Tabata training but I've never heard of a class taught in that style - very cool :)

  8. Sounds like a great week! We are steaming up again where I live so I doubt I will be able to put the riding miles in for the rest of the week. But a few is better than none. Right? Have a great week!
