Non Scale Victory Friday!

No intro today, just going right into it.

1. I’m back to my previous mileage! This was the first time since the sprained ankle that I was able to run 5 miles without stopping (okay maybe I stopped for 3 very small hills that I really didn’t feel like running). Now I feel more comfortable considering the Baltimore Half, although I may still need more convincing.
2. Someone brought Krispy Kreme donuts into the office yesterday. They looked delicious.

Plus I have been craving a donut for some time now, but it’s really easy to resist when getting a donut would require walking to my car, starting my car, driving to the donut shop, picking the donut, spending money until I can finally eat it (I’m really lazy). However, when they’re just sitting in the office kitchen staring at you it’s a bit harder. The victory? I didn’t cave and have a donut. Instead, I ate the lunch I brought, including a bowl full of fruit which helped stave off the sugar monster.

3. I started walking up and down the stairs once every hour at my office to keep me from sitting at my desk all day without moving.
4. I took a walk outside with some coworkers, it was great to get moving and enjoy the beautiful weather we’re currently enjoying.

Feel free to share your non-scale victories in the comments below, I love reading them! Have a great weekend!

  1. NICE JOB!! I LOVE Krispy Kremes and it always seems like a huge victory if I can say no to them. That fruit looks even more delicious anyway!

    Okay and…YOU NEED TO DO THE BALTIMORE HALF!!!!! Just do it!! You will totally be able to do it I promise! It was my first half last year and it was so much fun. I’m really looking forward to running it again!

  2. HI Elizabeth! This is Christina’s Emily (haha). I really enjoy reading your running blog and recently started running myself (I’m in the place it sounds like you used to be – trying to not entirely humiliate myself in a 5K this fall). I missed the non-scale victory this week so I’m updating late – I ran my first entire mile without stopping! (I’ve run a mile before but in a 6 minutes, take a break, 6 more minutes way). I’m doing the Couch to 5K program over the summer. 🙂
