What's Going On?

It was a very protein driven day. I guess making up for my small amount of exercise yesterday led to the need for those amino acids. Regardless of how tired I am right now, I am feeling good.

I had a couple of NSV's today, which is great. First I managed to pull on my one pair of size 22's jeans - left over from last year - which is a great step since everything else I own are all size 24W. They are admittedly slightly snug, but there is no muffin top hanging over the edge or anything. They just aren't super easy to bend in... yet.

The other non scale victory that I experienced was a bit odd. I accidentally fastened my watch on the wrong notch. Is my wrist getting smaller? That just seems so strange. Again, like the jeans, it was still snug - I actually readjusted it so that it was more comfortable - but I could have left it where it was and not cut off any circulation or anything.

Oh, and I forgot that yesterday a friend noticed my sagging jeans and told me I needed to go shopping for new clothes - so I guess that's actually three NSV's in the last two days. Woo hoo! Hmmm... come to think of it, I also saved a chocolate I was given in my pocket for over a day only to give it away to someone else. That's four! Four non scale victories, wa ha ha! Okay. I'm done.

- 11 glasses of water throughout the day
- 3/4 cup of fat free strawberry yogurt
- 1 apple
- 1 1/2 cups of chicken noodle soup
- 2 cups of celery with 2 Tb. peanut butter
- 1 wrap on a soft tortilla shell with 2 eggs, cheese, garden tomato, yellow pepper, mushroom, green leaf lettuce, and pepper
- 2 cups of steamed broccoli with margarine
- 2 carrots with rancher’s choice fat free dressing

- 55 minutes of walking completed in 3 outings (15 minutes long, 25 minutes long, and 15 minutes long)
- 1 hour swordplay course
- 2 sets of 30 stomach crunches
- 3 minutes of weight lifting with 5 lbs per arm


  1. Congrats on all of your NSV! Sometimes those are the best aren't they?

  2. NSVs are so great and motivating aren't they?

  3. The body has a way of taking inches off of places, like the wrist, that we could care less about. I wish we could point and click to where we want pounds to come off of.

    Great job on the NSVs. You're doing great.

  4. Yes to the watch thing! And congratulations on that and the new size jeans!! Wonderful NSV!!

    Sometimes those NSV's were even sweeter than seeing the scale move!

  5. Cool. Congrats on your NSV's. That's so wonderful!

  6. Gotta' love those NSV's....just as good as the SV's...sometimes even better! Good for you girl....keep rockin' it! :)

  7. Seeing all the wraps on your food list has inspired me to give them a try. Any recommended combos? :-)

  8. Those are some terrific NSV's! The best way to really see our progress, I think.

  9. You guys are all so encouraging!

    S. I am so the wrong person to recommend specific recipes since I pretty much never cook. The best advice I can give you is put in what you like... that way it's just all stuff that you already enjoy, but wrapped up into one tasty treat. For me, the ham and cheese combo is my favorite but the egg one I just tried was really good too. No matter what I have I add a ton of vegetables to it. Also, try grating the cheese since I find that less is used that way. Have fun!
