Despite the numbers not moving, I still have a couple of non-scale victories to celebrate.
NSV #1 - Size 16!!!
My mom, aunt, daughter and I went clothes shopping yesterday and had a great time. One of the rare instances where I've actually uttered those words about clothes shopping. I'm not a normal girl like that. I usually loathe shopping especially for myself. I'm a grab and go sort. If I don't see anything that I like then I just move on. On a whim I picked up a pair of size 16 women's jeans yesterday not thinking that I would fit in them. They did! And zipped! Granted there was a muffin top going on but, I went ahead and bought them since they weren't too terribly uncomfortable. I'll post pics later of a few of the things I got. I'm all sweaty and gross and don't really feel like modeling them just yet. ;)
NSV #2 - 5K Personal Record!!!
|Shaved 2 minutes off my last 5K time!|
|Pace got slower as I went along!|
With the exception of July 2nd, I've done at least something every single day! I can honestly attribute this to the new Fitbit!
Oh mom and I also signed up for a squat challenge hosted by our local YMCA. Hopefully my butt will thank my by the end of the challenge.
And last but not least in Desiree' related news, my mom bought me a new pair of running shoes for my birthday! I went and picked them out yesterday and gave them a whirl this morning. Amazing how fast those shoes wear down when you pound the pavement so much. I put on one of the new ones yesterday and one of the older pair that I got in December. It was quite telling how different the soles felt.
