Non Scale Victory Friday!

It’s been a busy week, both at work and in my personal life all starting with spraining my ankle on Saturday meaning I missed my race on Sunday Morning. I was disappointed for sure as I talked about here, but my boyfriend made up for it. Tuesday night, I went to his house after work and he surprised me with a rose, to make up for the rose I didn’t get when I would have crossed the finish line.

Definitely helped my disappointment in missing my race!

 

Anyways on to Non-Scale Victory Fridays. As always share your non scale victories in the comments below! Let’s celebrate those healthy habits!

  1. I met up with a friend for an early morning Saturday run and brunch with a close friend in Baltimore.
  2. My ankle is feeling better! After a week of rest it doesn’t hurt and isn’t swelling. I’m hoping by Monday I’ll be able to ease back into running again, just in time for the Arbutus Firecracker 10k on the fourth.
  3. I was so productive! I didn’t realize how much of my evening gets eaten up by running after work. I had so much time to cook, relax and stretch. Now I know why I could get so much done when I wasn’t working out!
  4. I haven’t lost my motivation to run! This is huge, if you don’t remember I had an unexpected week off of running due to my schedule a couple weeks ago. So, in the last 3 weeks I’ve only been able to run one week. It would be easy for me to lose my momentum and become lazy, but I’m ready to get back out there on Monday!

That’s all for now, have a great weekend, and share your victories below!

Non Scale Victory Friday!

It’s Friday, and you know what that means! Time for the non-scale victories of the week. So without further ado:

  1. I got out and ran on Monday and Tuesday after an entire week off from running last week, despite the heat it was great to get out and run.
  2. I tried a new recipe on Monday! I made pizza with a yuca root in the dough. Don’t know what a yuca root is? Well it looks like this:
My boyfriend said I can always be trusted to find the weirdest items when grocery shopping

And my pizza looked like this:

Brussels sprout and broccoli white on the left. Chicken and artichoke on the right.

And it was delicious! I got the recipe from this amazing blog here!

  1. After making delicious, healthy pizza I met up with a friend on Wednesday for delicious, greasy, unhealthy pizza. I got pepperoni, I enjoyed every bite and I didn’t feel bad about it at all. Yay for not feeling guilty for the occasional indulgence.
  2. Made plans with a friend to go running on Saturday morning in Baltimore followed by brunch. I HATE running in the morning, but I’m excited to start Saturday off early and healthy, not to mention the girl time!

That’s all for me! Enjoy your weekends, and as always share your non scale victories in the comments below!
