It’s time to celebrate those Non-Scale Victories. Did you resist a temptation? Notice that your jeans weren’t as snug? Exercise consistently? We know that weight-loss successes don’t occur only on the scale. Let’s celebrate them!
My family was very excited that The Biggest Loser Season 9 started this week. We love The Biggest Loser. It’s one show that we all enjoy watching together…and I’ve been very proud that, since I started losing weight, I’ve been using the first hour of the show to get in some extra workout time. I walk on the treadmill and I choose to walk at a comfortable pace, rather than a “workout pace.”
I have two NSV related to my Biggest Loser watching. First, I walked for a full three miles in a little less than an hour. The second was that I noticed that my comfortable pace and my workout pace have become one and the same. I found that I could walk at the pace at which I usually workout for the entire hour without becoming overly tired. That’s led me to make changes to my workout this week. I have kept my pace the same, because it is a comfortable pace for my short legs, but I have increased the incline in order to increase the intensity and calorie burn.
My other NSV occurred on Wednesday. I am NOT a morning person. However, I knew if I didn’t get my workout in before we left for my younger kids’ music class, I probably wouldn’t. So, I got up extra early so that I could have time to get my full workout in before we left. I felt much better about myself and the entire day for having done that.
What about you? What NSV have you enjoyed this week?
