May 2014 Non-Scale Victories

  1. Resisted buying 75% off Cadbury eggs.
  2. When the barista called my name for coffee, I was met by a woman who asked if I was the “famous blogger.” She found my blog when researching DWC and said that it inspired her to go for it.
  3. Did two “gardening workouts” over the weekend.
  4. Ate a little too “dirty” and my body rebelled with vomiting and a stomachache.
  5. Came up with a healthy alternative to ice cream for the summer. Took an existing Green yogurt recipe, put it in half cup containers and froze it. And it is WONDERFUL.
  6. Did a training session I didn’t think I would be able to finish
  7. Trying a new food log that takes the emphasis off of the calories a little more than MyFitnessPal
  8. Threw away from chocolate chip because I was sneaking too many handfuls

  11. Wearing one of my smaller bras today
  12. Went to Whole Foods for flowers and DIDN’T buy a cupcake, not even a mini one.

  14. Packed a lunch instead of eating out at FEMA seminar. Again.
  15. I was in my old stomping grounds, and very close to a pre-healthy fave restaurant, South Congaree House of Pizza. But instead of having lunch there, I stopped for an Amy’s organic pizza, cooked it at home and split it with sister.
  16. My billboard picture didn’t have to be airbrushed, and for me, look awesome
  17. Got water in on the weekend, which I usually don’t do

  19. Ate morning oatmeal with no sweetener, artificial or otherwise.

  23. Tried a new recipe: vegan Lemon Bliss Balls.
  24. Ate air-popped popcorn with NO cooking oil spray.
  25. I had a few slip ups today, but I wrote them down and contained the damage. No “well, I ate that so I may as well eat all of this” action.
  26. Opted for the simple way instead of stressful way for a going away present today.
  27. Trying to do one or two more reps than Danny asks me to do
