Non-Scale Victories

I haven’t shared too much of my weight loss journey lately.  This has been for two major reasons: One, I was actually plugging right along and losing weight without actually thinking about it or trying.  And, two, I finished my last dietbets and took a little time off for my little one’s first birthday.

Yep, I ate some of that.  I also ate some of this…
Cucumbers are healthy, right?  How many cucumbers with mayo on a Triscut can you have before you’ve decided to be honest and call it not-so-healthy snacking???
Besides the week of her Birthday, I really have been doing well.  I was doing all the right things without even thinking about it.  And, that’s the real goal, isn’t it?  I actually was allowing myself to have a piece of chocolate or a couple chips here and there.  I was doing it in a way that I was proving to myself I can handle not being super strict and I can still lose weight.
Ok, I say all that in past-tense because I haven’t really kept it up this week.  I’m struggling a bit to get back to that place after my careless eating last weekend.  I better get back into gear quick because I joined three more dietbets and only have two weeks because I wanted to be finished before we leave for our Florida vacation.  Yikes!
I did get my shivering tush out for a quick mile run the other day.  I’m pretty happy to say, even with my walking 2 min warmup counted, I pulled of a 12:40 pace!  Not too shabby since I average a 14 minute mile usually.  I’m just impressed I made up my mind to get out there at about thirty-some degrees!
What were your non-scale victories this week?  How is everyone doing avoiding the Halloween candy?
