Non-Scale Victories #2

Good morning!  I'm so glad it's Thursday...only 2 more days of Ripped in 30 and then I get two days off!!  :)  (I am going to workout this afternoon as I did it at 8:30 last night and am not mentally prepared to go through it again so soon.  :)

How are you?  I'm good.  Nicky seemed better as the day progressed but still managed to puke on me 3 times.  Patrick is staying home this morning with him so I can get my consignment sale stuff dropped off.  I had everything loaded into the van by the time the kids got home from school yesterday so I was DONE.  It was so nice to go to bed last night and just read...not have to think about anything.  I am definitely not going to save it all for the last couple of weeks when the fall sale rolls around.

I am joining up again today with Katie J. & Lex for the Non-Scale Victories link up.  I've got a few of them so let's get started.

1.  BUTTERCREAM.  I love buttercream frosting.  so much.  Seriously.  YUM!  On Nicky's birthday I had quite a bit but when I figured out my calories I was only about 500 over for the day.  That is only 1/7 of a pound...nothing to freak out about, you know?  I've been doing so good that I didn't let seriously pigging out on frosting for one day didn't get me down and THAT felt good. 

(see how I spun that my way?  eating gobs of frosting is Good!  it's a happy thing!  :)  )

2.  I only had one cupcake yesterday.  nuff said.

3.  Last Saturday when I took the kids to Pizza Hut, I ordered their Fit and Delicious pizza.  The Stuffed Crust monstrosity that the kids chose was tempting but I was totally fine with my thin crust option.

 4.  I struggle with getting 5+ servings of fruits and veggies in.  Green smoothies are great for this as I can usually knock off 3 servings that way but I'm not always in the mood for those.  This week I roasted up some broccoli, zucchini, and lots of mini peppers and had enough to eat it 3x.  Patrick even ate a lot of it, too.  (there were 2 pans.)  It was so good and I'm going to get some more veggies to do it again today.  Those bags of mini peppers at the grocery store are so tempting but I never know what to do with all of them.  But they're so cute!  :)  So, this is great for getting rid of adorable baby peppers, too.

I look forward to hopping around this afternoon and reading about everyone else's victories for the week!  Check them out here:



  1. I just drooled at the mention of buttercream frosting. Kudos to you for not eating an entire container. haha my weakness is cream cheese frosting. Luckily, I can't remember the last time I had any! Maybe I'll have some on my birthday in a couple of months! :) Looking forward to following your blog!

  2. OH I love buttercream. I believe in not denying myself, but to be realistic. If we don't, we will end up on a super-binge. Great job this week!

  3. I found your blog on the non-scale victories linkup. I wish I had that kind of willpower! Cupcakes and pizza are both really hard for me to say no to.

  4. Just thinking about butter cream icing makes me hungry. Great job not going crazy with it! I am not strong enough to be near it without trying to inhale an entire container.

  5. I hadn't heard of pizza hut's fit and delicious pizza before, I need to check that out! Pizza is a major downfall for me! But so are cupcakes. . . great job only having 1!

  6. It's okay to treat yourself with your favorite foods once in a while. Denying yourself to your favorite foods can lead to cravings and subsequently binging on other days.
