Non-Scale Victories Linkup – 4/17/14

I don’t really have a personal Non-Scale victory worthy of sharing this week. I shared already that I really struggled at the end of last week and into the weekend. I’m back on track and slowly, but surely finding my motivation again.

It has been a tough week. There has actually been a lot going on emotionally for me. A lot of big decisions. Sometimes it is rough being an adult, but now we all have responsibilities. I can’t really go into it on the blog, but I wish things had been different and I could have come to a different decision, but again I’m an adult and making tough decisions is part of life now. Ultimately, I know I made the right decision.

When I am stressed, busy, and tired it tends to be when I make the worst decisions health wise. I’m really working on that and trying to make good choices. I know what I’m capable of and I made time for the gym. I had a great talk with my friend, the trainer, and she made some awesome points and gave me some great things to think about. I swear sometimes going to the gym is like therapy.

So this week’s post I don’t really have a victory to linkup with, but for this coming week my focus is going to be on forgiving myself. Work on not being so hard on myself. Forgive myself and move on as best I can.

Do you have a NSV this week?



  1. I’m sorry you’re in a place where you have to make tough decisions. It is one of the crap sides of grown up life. On the plus side, you can go to bed whenever you want, so there is that.
    Hugs to you! Here’s to making healthy decisions when we really, really just want to eat spaghetti all day.

    • Going to bed whenever you want is a big plus, way to look on the bright side :)

      Definitely not always easy, but I know I made the right decision and as a few days have passed I’m more at peace with it all. Now back to focusing on my health!

  2. You made time for the gym in the middle of it all and you took advice from a friend! Those are two great NSV’s! Making hard choices is never fun but I am sure you did what was best!

  3. I don’t really like the whole adult part myself. I am so glad I found your site, and I love the non-scale victories blog hop. Looking forward to following you on your journey.

    • Hi Leslie! Thanks so much! The NSV linkup is actually inspired by a quote from the book “Finally Thin” by Kim Bensen. It is definitely a great read and I love that the author emphasized celebrating all the little victories along the way if you have a lot to lose.

  4. I see tons of NSV’s in that post! Be proud of yourself! I’ll definately take part in your NSV linkup next week! :)
