Non Scale Victory Friday!

I felt like Friday couldn’t come soon enough this week! If we’re being honest I’m just staring at the clock today willing it to be time for me to leave. I don’t have a particularly exciting weekend lined up, but I’ll be enjoying the weather while car shopping. Also, I guess potentially getting a new car is exciting as well!

It was a great week overall! Coming off the relaxing weekend I had was definitely what I needed to recharge, and aside from accidentally locking my car keys in the trunk yesterday, whoops! I didn’t have anything terribly stressful, which was a nice change of pace!

Onto my non-scale victories for the week! Remember to share your victories in the comments below. I love reading them!

  1. I registered for the Baltimore Relay! I’ve been wanting to do the Baltimore Running Festival, but didn’t feel confident enough to do the half marathon, but also couldn’t find anyone to do the relay with me. Then a friend of me texted to let me know her wife was looking for a fourth runner for her relay team and I jumped at the chance! I’m so excited to run this race and I can’t wait!
  2. However, that means I have to be a bit more diligent with my running than I have been. Since I haven’t had any 10Ks coming up I’ve been running 5Ks pretty consistently. Once I realized I’d have to run 6 miles I had a little bit of panic as I haven’t done that in a hot second. So I laced up those running shoes and ran 4.3 miles around my neighborhood. Made me much more confident that I’ll be at 6 miles by the time the race comes around in October.
  3. I am still not running with my GPS watch, and it feels amazing, I’ve been able to remind myself why I grew to love running in the first place. I feel so much better and more positive when I do go for a run. It actually makes the time pass by so much quicker now that my routine doesn’t consist of: run, check distance, .5 miles terrific! Run some more, I must be at 2 miles, check watch .6 miles. WHAT THE?!?!
  4. I ran those 4.3 miles in the morning!!! This is shocking for me. Unless I’m racing, or meeting a friend for running and brunch and mimosas I never run in the morning. However, on Wednesday I was able to go into work late, so instead of sleeping in I woke up at my usual time and went for a run instead. I felt so great about it that I decided to set my alarm for 5:45 on Thursday and go for another morning run. Yeah….that was a complete failure, the alarm went off and I just said “NOPE!” turned off the alarm and went back to sleep until my regularly scheduled wake up time. Oh well! Baby steps.

Have a great weekend everyone! Hopefully on Monday this time I’ll have a new car to show you all!

  1. My victories this week – ran around the UMBC loop twice. That equals the longest distance I’ve ever gone on pavement (2.5 miles). Last week I ran a 5K on the treadmill, trying to work up to it on pavement before the color run. Also I went to the groccery store and went produce crazy. I spent over $100 but I have fresh vegetables of every kind, because nutrition counts too!

    Good luck car shopping! I just bought my first car on Wednesday! It’s a 2002 Toyota Corolla. 🙂
