This is a link up I really enjoy, but don't participate in each week. Mostly because my personal victories are at a point where they are the scale. My hard work is paying off and the victory I am most proud of each week is that with each new loss comes a brand new lowest weight for me.
One of the processes that is helping me reach that though is exercise. I've blogged about it before, the walking challenge my girlfriend Julie and I are doing. If you haven't gotten caught up on it yet, you can check out the post from last month HERE!
We did this challenge last year too and I flaked out on it at the end...meaning I gave up. I ended up disappointing myself and vowed to do better with this year's challenge. We have been at it for almost 3 months now and I will openly admit that I am addicted to getting in my exercise portion of kilometers each day. I now walk every chance I get to see if I can get over the daily limit. I have had to miss 2 days this week on the treadmill and it bothered me a LOT!
My non-scale victory is more than just creating that healthy habit for walking...it's that I have already technically completed my required kilometers for the month. The required monthly total is 172.40 km (170 miles for my American friends, including Julie). With 5 days to go, I am at about 174 km. I am so pumped about this!
What is your non-scale victory? No matter how small, it needs to be celebrated!
