In other news, I’ve had some pretty awesome NSVs lately! While the scale can be a helpful tool, I cannot stress how important it is to measure your progress in Non-Scale Victories as well. Sometimes the scale will not move but you’ll see progress in other areas, which is enough to keep you motivated to keep on keepin on!

I wrote a few weeks back about how I was terrified of box jumps. Ok- I still kinda am… but I’ve hit a couple of solid ones in the last few weeks as I’ve spent tons of time working on them. That is an awesome NSV for me!

Since I started really pushing hard these last few months I’ve actually kept most of my jeans put away because it’s like a bajillion degrees outside. We’ve had a few cooler days so I decided to pull out some of my favorite jeans and put them on, and to my excitement they were pretty loose!! So I got even more brave and dusted off some of my “someday” jeans. These jeans were a pair that I wore before I got pregnant and only on days I was feeling “skinny”. They were by no means regular jeans, they were tight jeans. I tried them on last week…. and they fit!! With Wiggle Room!

(Tshirt by WODink. It says “Karen is a Dirty Pirate Woman” and if you’ve ever done the Karen WOD I’m sure you’d agree.)

I had another NSV today that I was pretty proud of. I RX’d a WOD! For those who aren’t familiar with CrossFit they have “prescribed” weights on their workout. Of course you can scale it down and still get a tough workout in, but one of my goals has been to be able to do a workout of the day (WOD) as prescribed.We did 400m run-20 Ground to Overhead (I did Clean and Jerk) 65# – 25 Thrusters 65# – 30 Burpees – 200m Run. I did it in 17:26, but I did it at the prescribed weight!

 This is my post RX’d WOD glow. Otherwise know as drenched in sweat. Or Liquid Awesome.

What are some of your NSVs (Non-Scale Victories)?
