Non Scale Victories! LOVE ‘Em!!

Standard

Reality and perspective check as well as support for my non-scale victories.

NonScale-Victory

Last night after cycle class, I went and stepped on the scale.

I have not stepped on one since June.

I know I feel healthier and stronger. My clothes fit better and I am buying smaller sizes.

Here is the kicker…..I weigh MORE than the last time I weighed myself.

I would be discouraged if I relied solely on that number, but guess what… NOPE!

Not discouraged.

I will keep busting my hump and pushing myself to try new things and to be healthy everyday!

I will continue on this journey to Fit and FAB without relying on some silly number!

LES SMASH! Goodbye Scale…..

Standard

Last weekend I had the pleasure of being invited to a SMASH The SCALE event.

 

I have had a LOVE/HATE…mostly HATE…relationship with my scale.  It DOES NOT measure the weight I can lift, the clothes that fit more comfortably, the smile on my face.

 

So it was time to say goodbye.

Goodbye my Enemy

Goodbye my Enemy

We wrote messages to them.

And then we SMASHED.

Goodbye!

Goodbye!

It was so freeing.  And I do not miss stepping on it one bit!

No Friends of Mine

I LOVE that I have traded my weights in.  I have watched myself go from 8lb to 10lb and now 15lb…and only getting stronger!

I also still fit my summer clothes…going on 5 years for some of them!!

How do you measure progress?

The Journey Begins

Standard

Embarking.

Beginning.

Starting.

All words describing the initial decision to get things going.  I am constantly looking, searching, seeking out new ideas for keeping things new, keeping workouts not boring, finding recipes to shake things up, and ways to keep my kids from going driving me crazy.

And I have found a place to chronicle all of this.

Join me on my journey to fitting it all in, LOVING it, and living the Fit and Fab Life!!
