I'm all about the number on the scale but sometimes, well, all of the time, I need to also focus on the many little changes that I've been making which aids in that number trending down. Today I'm linking up with KTJ and Lex to celebrate my non-scale victories this week.
~ I've been craving chocolate or some type of equally bad for you snack and I haven't given in. I haven't made any excuses for myself as to why I deserve it, want it, need it etc. If you knew me, you'd understand that I'm really good at talking myself into believing these dumb things when it comes to food. For the past two nights when I was really wanting a snack I decided to just focus on making my healthy lunch for work the next day which helped take my mind off it.
~ I am joining a gym this weekend to incorporate exercise into my routine. I'll be adjusting my work schedule a bit to not interfere with Olivia's schedule so I can work out super duper early in the morning before work. Sneakers have been purchased, not I just need to treat myself to a cute workout outfit and a gym bag.
~ Food - more specifically cooking. This week I've been focused on cooking really tasty but healthy dinners. My normal routine when I leave work is to put Olivia down for a nap and then start dinner. This gives me plenty of time to prepare and make something good. This week we've had baked fish and roasted veggies and sweet potatoes, salad and roasted chicken.
Head over to KTJ's blog to link up and share your non-scale victories for the week. Seeing the number on the scale move is great but when it doesn't it's really important to help yourself stay motivated and what better way to do that than to brag a bit about changes you're making to help you along the way!
