Even though members of the Spring 5% Challenge pursue exercise with unmatched vigor in an attempt to lose 5% of our weight, we are also encouraged to celebrate non-scale victories.
I was walking along today and my hand brushed my thigh. I thought, "Hmmm," and gave it a good feel. Yes, it's true, it felt firm--I mean hard. For someone my age, that's saying a lot. Since beginning SP, I can count a number of NSVs:
Toned leg and arm muscles
Ability to exercise for an hour and not become winded
Feel energized even at the end of a work day
Much better sleep pattern
Not derailed by potentially stressful situations
Great list, I'd say. I'm pleased. Do you have any NSVs to report?
